It's Not Vegas, But It Will Do

It seems as if every post I write here is something of an update. Since I have nothing creative to write, I'll just do what I always do. It's what you expect.

I'm saving up to buy a new car this summer. Any suggestions? Not just opinions, but likes and dislikes, facts, etc.

School is over for the semester. I finished with 2 A's, 2 B's and a P (passing my practicum class). Technically, I'm done with school. Yay. But I have one more class this summer. Boo. A week long workshop on church and community involvement. Since there is no summer graduation, I will be done with my Masters in December 2008. Because I can get a grant to take nine hours, I'm going to do that next semester. I'm going to be taking a class on the church and politics, philosophy of religion, and something else. I'm ready to be done now, though. I also have to study for the GRE this summer. That is weighing heavily on my mind.

The black non-Christian girl Andrea (I realized I never posted her name) and I are dating. It was on, then off, and then on again. We have a lot of fun together. And she is special. We're both content for now. I think that's what it is anyway. We're actually going away this weekend. I have a friend getting married in Mississippi, but due to all kinds of conflicts, we're not going. So I asked her if she would just like to go stay on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We're going to Biloxi, Mississippi, and staying at the Isle of Capri Casino Resort. It's on the beach. We have a room with a jacuzzi. And there's gambling. I mean, it's not Vegas, but it will do.

1. Thanks for the Toyota tip. They run more money used than I'd like to pay (for the less miles). I'll look in to it.

2. What are you congratulating?

3. We don't have sex. I'm still a virgin. Frustrated like hell, though, I still am glad to be one.

2. Your school successes
3. Fag

I like updates. What's cool about this is it FEELS like you wrote it just for us. No Mass Mailing here,no way.

Sorry I didn't return your call. Sorrier now that I see you're out of town this weekend. Who knows when the stars may align again?

Of course, you could call me from the no sex room in between blowing your mad money on craps. Didn't know where I was going there did you?

As for cars, I say work the math and don't necessarily fear making payments. A 200 dollar a mo. on a slightly less than new might save you more on mpg and repair costs. Still, make the big down payment though. That helps.

I'm glad you finally told us Andrea's name. Quite frankly, we were getting tired of referring to her as your black non-christian pseudo girlfriend. Ha ha. Congrats also on school.

Whenever you're doing swell at the tables, you should have Andrea slap you really hard and then act drunk with the moment, begin chanting, but before you throw the dice say something like, "daddy needs a new karaoke bar!"

We had fun. I turned $40 into $118 on one crazy bet on a video slot machine that I had no idea what was going on. Then, on the last day, I turned $5 into $30. I did bet like $50, so I still made some money. Now I'm hooked.
