By the numbers

* This is my 1209th post.

* 7089 cigarettes have not been smoked by me in the last 237 days.

* Yesterday spouse put together my second website. (You're reading the first.)

* We spent $11 on the lotto since the jackpot was $48 million.

* 0 is the dollar amount we won.

* 800 megabites remaining on my ipod. This makes me reticent to add more music unless it's really good. It's kind of like Elaine on Seinfeld where she had to decide if the guy was sponge-worthy.

* 3 is the number of solid night's sleep I've had this week.

* $49 is how much it's costing per night at the Sheraton in Petaluma Easter weekend. We're going to do a little wine tasting in Sonoma before the family reunion that week. God I love Priceline.

* 5 inches of snow are forecast today. How much is a condo in Florida now?

* 4 US dollars will get you 5 Canadian dollars today.

* Gas is 84 cents a liter today. About $3.20 gallon Canadian or $2.56 US per gallon which feels cheap even though they are still reaping enormous profits.

* 33 hours of solitaire have already been played on the ipod. I hate that it tracks the number of hours, but I love that it tracks your winning percentage.

* I win solitaire 16.8% of the time.

Cool website! I could read two words, but the rest looks pretty.

Mark Knopfler is spongeworthy. (That just doesn't sound right.) Check him out.

Cool website. I'm up to 63349 cigarettes not smoked. Congrats on still being smoke free, you're almost up to a year. I'm going to use priceline for my upcoming trip to SD and LA. I hope I can do as well as you did. I'll email you if I get confused, you told me how to do it when I was up there but I forgot.

Priceline - I've never used it because you have to give your credit card before you get anything in return! I may email you and ask your advice.

Nice website ya got there!

Now see, if you an Spouse did go skiing, you would be celebrating that 5 inches!

The website looks great.

Wow, you're much more charitable than I am but then we do different things. I charge $80 per hour for IT services.

What app are you using on your iPod for solitaire? I use Sol Free.

Reminds me of a chapter in a book I just finished by Augusten Burroughs....on his addiction to Nicorette gum after quitting smoking....over 1,000 pieces a month at a cost of $700!

I just had to replace my ipod because the battery died (and they make it basically as expensive to get a new battery as to simply buy a whole new unit).

Roxrocks said...

Take the solitaire off the pod and you can squeeze in more tunes! Although, you're on the bus a bit so solitaire probably keeps you entertained. Hm.

I'm off to check out your website!

Yahoo! No paying for parking in San Francisco. How far is Petaluma from Sonoma?

You are going to have a good time.

I have solitaire on my iPod? Oh, look, there it is. How odd.

Typo in the English section of new website: Competitive

The lotto theme makes me giggle :-)

I "accidentally" kissed a man on friday (don't ask) who clearly smoked. You're so much better off w/out those 7000+ non-smoked.

Or maybe I am - you know, if I accidentally kissed you or something.

Nice web site. It was dynamic and facilitated learning. Bravo!

Don't feel bad, I've played 107 hours, 6 minutes and 33 seconds (but I win 49.5% of my games, which is Klondike 1 by the way)
