I had today off (my weekends are usually Sunday & Monday) and I woke around 10 a.m. this morning to a text asking me if I was coming in. I was slightly dizzy with a scratchy throat and a stuffy nose (symptoms of an oncoming cold) and so I declined saying I needed my 2 day weekend and would start working Monday-Friday next week if need be. Of course I couldn't go back to sleep so I got up and made myself a bowl of oatmeal and a glass of orange juice and plopped down on the couch to watch a bit of pointless Soapography on SoapNet. (Who really watches that on a regular basis??)

Anyway, I had a few errands I wanted to get done so I headed out for the grovery store and then next door to Best Buy to pick up an external HD case for my extra hard drive. I browsed around Best Buy and saw Firefly on sale for $20! I snatched it right up and continued to see what else was available. I almost picked up Tristan & Isolde since I watched it a couple weeks ago and really liked it, but decided not to. Then I had to smile when I spotted the Sci-Fi Channle's mini-series Dune, because I had JUST watched this really good fanvid Beautiful Girl yesterday based on the series. And since it and the 'sequel' Children of Dune were only $10 each I picked them up as well since it seemed interesting enough.

In all my thrifty savings glee I completely forgot to check out external HD cases and only realized it as I was riding the El back home, so I stopped in at the Staples down the street from my apartment and scored another deal paying only $25 for a HD case (they're usually at least $50)! At this rate I'm thinking I should purchase a lottery ticket, but I don't want to blow it. heh

In other news... I've decided to join the masses in using YouTube. Yes I know it can be the spawn of satan littered with clip theifs, but I figure it will be a way to keep my favorite videos around. Besides, work is calming down some and I'm getting into a routine, so I've been thinking about maybe just maybe trying to do some fanvids again, though I'm still not decided on that. I said that this time last year and I didn't get very far, so we'll see.

Anyway I'm off to watch Dune and possibly Children of Dune. I hope they're good. I'll let you know.
