You know, I'm sitting here in my bathrobe with not much to do. I think I may read, or study, or do some homework. How noble is that?
I forgot to mention that Angie bought me some KICK ass Dragonball Z playing cards. They each have a different picture on them. They rock!

Angie will probably be over here soon, we're going to an auction.
I sorted all my change today and took out all the new quarters that I had mixed in there. I think I must have had $12 in just the new quarters. I really should take the rest of my change to the bank.
Angie and I went to the auctions in Aurora. It was pretty cool actually, they had a lot of neat stuff going for cheap. Then we went to dinner at Dairy Queen with Amanda. Not too bad actually.
I'm pondering sleep, but I'm not really tired and there are some things that I want to do before I go to bed.
