With the gift card my Mom got me for Xmas I purchased a DW 4000 series single bass drum pedal- it is one of their lower end models, but it's better than anything I've ever owned- it's got Velcro on the bottom so it sticks to the floor! No amount of frantic drum soloing can dislodge my pedal now!
I recently opened a ING Direct online savings account. It takes the money out of my main checking account each payday- I am an enormously bad money saver so hopefully this will help.
As some of you may know, I got Tuesday off from work because my building was closed for Gerald Ford's funeral- but get this- the cheap bastard fucking peckers I work for aren't paying us! We had no choice to work or not, and now we have to either use our vacation hours (which I have very few left) or take the day leave without pay... bullshit, right?
Well my annual 'take a month off from drinking' is going well so far- the weekends are always the big tests... I'm going to try to go see some music tonight without drinking- that's always a chore- but I gotta stay strong! I figure if I can go a month without beer without getting the dt's I'm winning...
happy Friday, tld
