It's alive!

Yes kiddos, I'm back. February was a busy month, so I'll only rehash the main points.

During the first week of February my precious Ford Taurus finally broke it's last leg and and died on me in the Caribou Coffee parking lot. Lucky for me Aaron is working up the road from where I work so I hitched a ride with him while I searched on the internet looking for a new car.

The winner? A 2001 green Jeep Cherokee. I've always wanted one so I figured I'd better get one now before they all look rounded like the new Jeep Libertys. I tend to like the boxy shaped cars!

On Valentine's Day Aaron and I went to see 50 First Dates. I'm so pathetic I cried at the end! It was so romantic and all about Hawaii and at the very end they played one of my favorite songs by Israel "IZ" Kamakawiwo`ole. I bawled like a baby! No wonder we don't go out to the movies very much.

The 28th was my birthday. I think I'm starting to hate my birthday. I was in a foul mood all day and nothing was going right for the whole week before it. We decided to follow through with what we'd planned to do for a month- go to the new Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit and then on to the Greektown Casino for a little roulette. The Hard Rock was really small and REALLY loud and I don't think we'll go back. I'm glad we went because I have a funny feeling that's it's not going to be around for very long.

For as many times as I've been there, I never really realized that Greektown is only 1 block long. For being a " "-town, I thought it was on the small size. We got into the casino and headed straight for the roulette tables. At $20 a spin, I found it a little too pricey for my taste so we headed towards the slot machines. I put $5 into a machine and won $30. Being the cheapskate that I am I decided to walk away so Aaron jumped on my machine and won another $55. Since we had already quadrupled our money ($10 into $85) we decided to walk and get the hell out of dodge before dark.

I almost forgot. I have to give a shout out to the Domestic Princess for helping me get a new computer. For the last month or so I haven't been able to log into Blogger (among other things). Now I can blog from the privacy of my own home! Yippee!!!
