Yep, I’m a little miffed. I owe this year. But, thankfully, it’s not that much at all; only a fraction of a paycheck amounting to only about $10/mo. That’s not too bad, I guess. But, it sucks in any case. The state of Alabama also owes me $2. I’d better not spend it all in one frelling place.
In other news, I went out with Carrie again on Friday nite. We did dinner at Chili’s and saw Sideways, which has apparently been nominated for a few Oscars. It was a pretty funny movie about these two guys to tour the wine country in California. It didn’t really star any big names, which was perhaps one of its strengths. The plot was very rich, and definitely quite humorous. If you haven’t seen it yet, shame on you.
Anyhoo, I’m taking her out to dinner again on Monday for V-Day. I’m not entirely sure where yet, but I have a few ideas. I guess I’d better hurry and make up my mind since tomorrow be the day *GASPs and runs around in panic*
So I was listening to “Ramble On” by Led Zepp today, and I noticed that there is a Lord of the Rings reference in it. I have heard the songs many times over the years, but never really noticed it:
Mine’s a tale that can’t be told, my freedom I hold dear.
How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air.
T’was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair.
But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her….yeah.
This was just one of those songs where i knew how to hum/whistle the melody, but I never really knew the lyrics. Very interesting.
The Cubbies report to spring training in about 2 days. w00t!! It’ll be awesome to see them take the field again; there are going to be two new broadcasters on WGN, so they’re going to have a bit of a new face. Instead of buying a season pass to listen to internet streamed games, I was pondering getting XM radio. I’d be able to hear every Cubs game, and I’d also be able to listen to radio stations across country.
