Update: Spent about 2hrs looking for jobs in NYC. Doubt I'll get any calls though as it seems no one is willing to work with an out of state candidate.

Update: $240 for dinner last night. Paid about $40 too much since we were splitting 10 ways but had some cheapo's and then some people drinking $140/bottles of wine

Since when does a midori sour + redbull grey goose cost $22? Thats the reason I do not go out, not to mention the hang over today.

Sorry for the Facebook binge ChicagoFan... I was ummm less than stellar shape last night
Group meals yield bad deals and my wife is driven crazy when we get into these.
We don't drink very much at all.

Yeah we knew we'd get screwed because we donít drink with dinner. However its for our brother inlaws(wifes sisters husband) 30th Bday party in NYC. We were prepared to get raped especially since people were ordering Beef carpaccio and expensive bottles of wine. We ended up getting the filet mignon since we made up for the appetizer in the price of the entree. The place also screwed up and gave us a seafood anti pasta when we only asked for "An antipasta for the table" You know sausage(meats)/cheeses. Yeaaaa... well the appetizer was a lobster tail, shrimp, clam, Portobello mushroom, caprese salad anti pasta. $17/plate.

Update: Go away and the garbage doesnít get done. I guess I'm not allowed to leave on Sundays and Wednesdays. She doesnít like taking the trash out at night.

She hasn't even looked at it yet. Of course I still got the "well I bet he didn't factor in the increase cost of insurance and tags in that spreadsheet."

Update: Getting lots of reading on the interwebz done today.

I think the numbers looked good. Of course we'll see what she thinks when she finally sits down and looks at the spreadsheet. I have a feeling though the ///M won't be my next vehicle.

Update: Crossing my fingers that I get a couple of good phone calls in this next month.

Why dont you keep your 335i for a little while longer? Whats the likelyhood something major will break? you took good care of it no? Then save your monthly car payment you would have been spending and wait till you can make the wifey happy and 'more importantly' you.

Update: A7X is awesome!

You all think alike, don't you?



It wasn't in the spreadsheet but I factored it in, in my head.

Update: Not sure if I really want to eat the lean cuisine meal I brought today for lunch.
