Friday, April 25, 2008 :::
So even though I haven't received it yet (and I'm not even sure if I qualify, as a matter of fact), I have already spent my economic stimulus rebate five times over, so I guess that lame government tactic totally worked on a chump like me.
My main purchase was an $850 VIP ticket to Lollapalooza, which I will be attending with my good buddy Dr. Erik. We're gonna bust all up in that place like we own the joint and drink all the cheap wine and watery beer that we can before stumbling out sweaty and drunk into the writhing masses to mix with the little folk, because we truly are men of the people.
The lineup is pretty incredible this year. I'm super excited to see Radiohead (one of my new New Years Resolutions, actually - check!), Nine Inch Nails, The Raconteurs, Wilco, and dozens more. That's right, I like the hard stuff...
...except I'm so dainty that I had to spend an extra $600 on the VIP ticket so that I could have access to air conditioned toilets and a less dirt-ridden environment. Oh well. I'm still hardcore on the inside, though.

Yay for Lollapalooza! I am excited to go, but we don't have the dollars for the VIP tickets, so we'll be suffering the port-o-potties :(

Why was I expecting Lollapalooza to be a comedy fest? I know it's not, but for some reason that's where my brain went.
I have officially spent too much time on the Internet.

I stimulated the Mexican economy by taking a trip to Canun. My $600 will pay the credit card debt I incurred there. I don't think Dubya had that in mind.

If you really want to blow Dubya's mind, give the money to Planned Parenthood. I did it in 2001 with my $300 "Thanks for electing me" bonus. And I'll do it again with my "Oops, sorry about that" bonus in 2008. Good thing that flip-flopper Kerry didn't win in '04. I'd be $900 poorer! That's how that works, right?
