I Spent A Lot of Money Today

Short entry if only because since ~2pm Wednesday afternoon, I've had only about four and a half hours of sleep, and want to write something in here before I go to bed, so I can sleep in without the nagging feeling of things needing to be done. Thus, the following it was the title of this entry concerns, but first, let it be known that "today" comprises the aforementioned period of time - Wednesday afternoon to now.

a] A large Café Mocha and large apple cider from Tim Hortons on the way home from work (Wednesday night / Thursday morning). Cost: ~$4.50
b] A registration key for Avernum: Escape From The Pit. Cost: ~$20
c] The Official Guide to The Legend of Zelda (2nd Edition). Cost: ~$15
d] A shirt Brandon wanted. Cost: ~$22
e] Two breakfast taquitos from 7-11. Cost: ~$2.50 (with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon)
f] Three Sausage McMuffins from McDonalds. Cost: ~$5
g] One copy (obviously) of Hyrule Historia. Cost: ~$90
h] Twenty dollars put on my Visa. Cost: $20 (the only one without a tilde)
i] Baking supplies from Food Basics. Cost: ~$20
j] Snacks from 7-11 on Thursday night. Cost: ~$12.50

I was even going to go out to 7-11 again, at about 4:30(am), but decided not to on the grounds that all I had was a twenty, and most likely not enough change to buy what I wanted. As for the staff meeting, it went well, and as before, only two other people were there. I ended up volunteering to work for three hours over supper, which was extended to four when I additionally volunteered to stay until 9 to wash some of the dishes, and since then, have mostly just been sitting here. I did talk with Dan for a bit earlier though, to show him the page for a special event at the Toronto Zoo during the time I'll be there next month, which we've decided to attend (tentatively, as it remains to be seen what he can find in the way of a current bus schedule), and in the meantime, I like that I have discovered the meaning to the reference number I was sent. It is WL20120413033532, and it occurred to me after a minute of looking at it that that string does have meaning. WL stands for "white lion(s)". 2012 for the year. 04 and 13 are for the month and date respectively, and 03, 35, and 32 indicate the hours, minutes, and seconds past midnight when I clicked the button to register. Neat, no? It is to me, at least. I think that's all I have the patience for though. One last trip to the bathroom, then a brief moment to put pillows in my windows, and I'm off to bed for a long-awaited, proper-length sleep. I really need to do this more often...
