Apparently now you can make a reservation, donate blood, and get a ticket to a Redskins game. Really wishing I still lived in the DC area about now. Of course, I'd probably have to buy at least one more ticket to the game for my lovely wife, and it'd probably end up being nowhere nearby. (Unless, of course, the "ticket" from the blood donation is a voucher for a ticket, in which case maybe you could buy two adjacent tix for the price of one with the voucher.) I was glad to see the skins knock off the cowboys last night. Yeah, you might say the boys should've won on that last play except for the holding, but likey Romo would've been sacked had the holding (blatant, it was) not happened.

Totally unrelated, my youngest boy is eating french fries and M&Ms, and the HOA of the house we're renting finally complained about the 14' box truck I bought and have been parking in my driveway. They recommended i park it in my garage. Um, hello? In my garage? It's a box truck, you silly HOA, it won't fit in my garage. Their other recommendation? The back yard. I'm renting, and there's only a single 4' gate into the back yard, so that's not an option, either.   Dumb HOA. I can't wait to get out of here... hope the new place isn't as bad.

Why'd I buy a box truck, you ask? Well, we were moving stuff out of my grandmother's house (she went to heaven earlier this year), and I'll be moving to a new house in a couple of months. I figure, rather than rent twice, I'll just buy a truck (cheap, off Craigslist), use it, then sell it. No hassles of trying to get the truck loaded and unloaded quickly; instead, I can unload at my leisure (and load, too, for that matter). So far I think it's working according to plan, despite the issues the truck's had along the way. A few more months and hopefully I'll still be thinking the same thing.

Ah, well, guess I'll get back to eating my fries, and maybe finish up with some M&Ms.
