You know, it's kind of nice being near an outlet center... it makes Christmas shopping easier.

But that's not what's behind the subject of this post. I was thinking about something earlier: say my auto insurance is $1300/year. Then I switch to Geico, and save about $500. Then I switch to Nationwide, and save about $500. Then I switch (back) to Allstate, and save about $500. At this point, I should be making $200/year in order to insure my automobiles. Cool, eh? Does it really work like that? From the commercials, it seems like it should.

I wonder if I could just shortcut the whole thing and ask Allstate to pay me $200/year to maintain my insurance (instead of my paying them).

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to work quite a bit over the next few days. Fortunately, my new employer shuts down for the week between Christmas and New Year's Day, so I won't have to work during that period.

Later, all... and if you're an ex-hocky player, be sure to shop at the Office Depot. (If you don't get it, ask... I'll explain...)
