The holiday season has come and gone, and while the money’s still a
little tight, I decided to commit to buy a few things with some money
I’d saved up for the purpose combined with some gift certificates and
other money I got for Christmas.
First on the list, I special ordered (from Magnolia
Audio/Video) the Bose Acoustimass 16
series 6.1 speaker
They said it’d take a couple of weeks to get here, so it’s not in place
yet, but I’m very anxious. It’s on the way.
Then I took an iTunes gift card I got
from my mom and I’ve been getting songs and stuff. That’s fun, and I can
see where it would become addictive. Like, it’s “only a dollar” for a

Mario Golf: Toadstool
Both are fun, and Jenn and I regularly compete at golf. Neither of us
are all that good, but it’s a lot of fun.
