Quick Updates

I’m still very busy

Let me do a quick update.

  • I am busy
  • I see very tiny basil plants budding out from the pot.
  • I met one girl from a dating website.  I met her once and I stopped seeing her.  In 2 days, she wrote me 25 emails and called me 3 times.  Each email was very long.  I am still kicking myself that I invited her to my place.  She knows where I live. 
  • I joined 3 dating websites.  It’s a desperate time, I need to change my profile title to "Personal Hygiene Not Important"
  • My ex coworker got a job at Guitar Center (corporate office).  This can be significant.  I may be able to buy all the guitars I want CHEAP.
  • I went to Costco, but I didn’t buy anything fancy.
  • My kitchen sink was clogged.  So, I went under the sink and ran 25" snake through it.   It was horrible.. the smell…  but drain is unclogged.
  • I am trying to play "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" with my guitar.
  • For the first time this year, I made more money than I spent.  We may be at the turning point.  Please send positive energy to my way.  I am totally wiped out.  I just want to sleep day and night.
  • I am still having fun.  I feel positive.  I am tired, but not sick.
  • I love the girl who says "Ride that spicy chicken" at Jack in the Box commercial.

Basil Seeds

I’ve been busy.  I am still busy.

I spent last weekend alone at my apartment (as usual).  I bought a small pot and basil seeds from Home Depot.  I decided to give it one more try.

My neighbor’s cat was keep looking at me as I was getting the pot ready.  She is my favorite cat.  So I stopped what I was doing and played with her for a while. 

I hope I have a better luck with basil this time.

It gets cold during the Winter time.  So, I need to bring in the pot when I go to sleep.  Let’s see how it goes… 

OH boy, I hope I don’t get obsessed about growing spices.

Costco to Raise Membership Fee


Click for a complete Costco News


Costco Wholesale Corp. said it is raising membership fees for about 22 million customers, as the largest U.S. warehouse club operator seeks to offset rising costs.

The 10% increase in membership fees, going into effect next month, may help offset the disappointing operating margin the company showed in the latest quarter. Operating margin shrank to 2.7% from 2.9% amid double-digit increases in merchandise and overhead costs on a percentage basis.


John’s Note:

So, basically, if you are a regular member, your membership will be $55.00/year.  Executive membership will be $110.00/year.

I am keeping my membership.
