So last time I blogged about paying to see a movie I already owned. Well I did it again but THIS time it was more worth it. I went to The Trocadero’s Movie Monday. What movie was playing? Well none other than Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan!
The ticket was only 3 Dollars which was awesome and it included free drinks. So the night was going pretty good the movie was amazing as ever then it got better. I won a prize for dressing like a star fleet commander.
So my prize consisted of: 2 Battleship the movie dog tag bottle openers, 1 poster for The Expendables,2 posters for The Host, and 1 copy of Underworld on DVD.
Well as you Jurassic Park was released in 3D the other day. I paid to see it in IMAX because my whole life I have wanted to see that T-Rex scene in 70mm. and it was beautiful…except for the 3D. I dont really reget seeing it but part of me feels ashamed for paying to see a movie even though I own it on DVD. Did you see it? How do you feel about it?
So recently there was a list done for 25 Of The Coolest Vehicle Designs From Banks And Credit Unions! We ranked at 11. Go Flipmobile!
Do you enjoy the Flipmobile? or do you think its time we upgrade?
Well I have been unemployed for the last few months. Since the holidays actually. I got laid off right around the time I was going to buy presents then take a trip to seattle. I was unable to do either of those things. Im still looking for another job sent my resume out lots of places but have yet to get a call back. In the meantime I have decided to do somethings that will help me spend less.
Since I am living at home and eating all my parents food I decided to try and help out a little. I use a LOT of electronics. Its a known fact if you leave an electronic plugged into a socket even if its turned off it will still drain energy. I’ve been making an effort to unplug everything when I am not using them. When I lived downtown in my apartment I did this is all the time and it saved us big time on our electric bill. If you live in an apartment and are pinching pennies try this and you’ll be shocked how low your electric bill is.
Some of you have probably heard the word Stock before. Have you ever wondered what they were exactly?
When you buy a stock your basically buying a part of a company.
There are different types of Stock with Positives and Negatives.
Pro: Owners share in success when a company profits.
Con: Owners are at risk when if the company fails.
Pro: you are guaranteed Dividend Payment
Con: The Dividends do not increase if the company prospers.
Pro: More shares are created at lower price per share.
Con: The stockholders who split it share in the profits if it goes back up.
Obviously there is a lot more to know about stocks this was just to give you a very, very, very simple idea.
I sat down with a friend not to long ago and watched a few shows on TLC. I said to her how awful the shows were these days and reminisced about how educational The Learning Channel used to be. She then said “The Learning Channel? That’s what TLC stands for?” I then wanted to cry. Funny or Die has done a video mocking all the “reality” TV shows on the air now.
