Challenge Money and a New Bike!

July 10th, 2007 at 08:28 pm

Old Total: $1486.23
+ 20.00 babysitting
------------------------
New Total: $1506.23

I made $20 babysitting tonight. I still need to take those clothes to Plato's Closet and start rounding up stuff to sell at my parents' garage sale next week. So much to do, so little time!

I bought a new bike today to replace the one that was stolen. I was perusing some online classifieds for bikes (both to buy and to try to see if anyone was selling mine) and ending up emailing someone about a used bike for sale. He was asking $100 but told me he would take $75 if I bought it today. He even drove the bike over to my office so I could test it out. The bike is a Mongoose Pro Rockadile SX from 2002 and had hardly been used. I think it probably sold for ~$230 when it was new. After testing the bike out, I wasn't sure if I loved it (I think I'm still mourning the loss of my last bike). I asked him if he'd take $60- and he consented. I'm happy to have wheels again and feel like I made out pretty well for $60. The guy said he won the bike in a card game, so I figured he had no use for it (plus it's way to small for a man his size).

    Hi...somewhere on this blog I noticed you took a trip to Mariupol, Ukraine. I am trying to find information on theaters, cinemas and shops there so I can impress a certain lady that lives there by buying here a ticket to a symphony or even just movie tickets and just writing something along the lines..."Hey if your bored this weekend just go to "...." and you'll find a couple tickets waiting for you. maybe I could go through an agency for this but they seem to want to charge an arm and a leg for services like flowers...that they are used to providing everyday...let alone a special request. OK...well my question is do you have a directory of places I could call?

    Anything would be appreciated. It's for love!
