I've had a bad cold the last few days. Then again, I can't remember when I've had a good cold. Either way, it's sucked out my desire to do much of anything. Ever be really bored, but at the same time not feeling like doing something? That's me over the last few days.
I have been a little spendy lately. Yesterday Major League Baseball tickets went on sale. Being a Red Sox fan living near Oakland, my wife and I were able to get some prime tickets in the first two minutes they came on sale. It's light and day compared to when I lived in Boston and had to call for three hour for any tickets (getting shut out). The equivalent tickets in Fenway would probably have cost $150-200. Fortunately the Red Sox are only coming to town for three games this year.
Then yesterday, I used Craigslist to pick up this Weber Genesis Propane Gas Grill. It was brand new sealed in the box and only $300 - a savings of some $450 dollars. (And I spent most of today putting it together instead of publishing this post.
