Picture Show: A Great Cheap Theater in Colorado Springs

So, the Picture Show theatre in Colorado Springs is fabulous for a cheap date night, or really for any time you want to spend barely any money to see a movie. It’s $1.50 per person ($.75 on Tuesdays!), and there are eight movie screens, so if you’re willing to wait a bit after movies come… Read more »

Free Underwear!

So in the past several weeks, two separate free underwear coupons have arrived from Victoria’s Secret. Well, technically they said “free panty”, but I think “panty” sounds kind of sissy, so I say “underwear”. In any case, I used both today, bringing Drew along to satisfy the “one coupon per customer” requirement. The coupon also… Read more »

Clearwire!

So I have this two-year contract with Clearwire for high-speed internet, and I managed to move with 6 months of it left. Unfortunately, they charge a horrendous cancellation fee to the tune of $180. In the effort of avoiding having to pay this, I decided to pass off the modem and account to someone else… Read more »

Update on the state of things

Recently spent a glorious couple of days watching Boogiepop Phantom. I really liked the series and need to find more anime like that to… Read more »

Also, as I am moving sooner then later, I have various objects who would love to have new homes. First off: the aloe plant. I have a rather overgrown aloe plant that I really… Read more »

Interviews and moving and such

So I’ve now managed to secure two interviews, one on the 6th and one on the 7th, both with recruiter-types, and both for Colorado Springs positions. Admittedly, my target area was more for Denver, but I’m just looking forward to being employed at a place that gives me dollars which is in Colorado. I really… Read more »

Adventures with zinc and fighting menstrual evils

So I start my period in four days. And thus, I start taking zinc today. According to various things I’ve been reading online, I can all but avoid the evil painful cramps I generally have by taking 30-90 mg of zing starting a few days before my period begins. The unfortunate side effect of this… Read more »
