After one of my tires gave up life, I went to NTB at 7:30 on Saturday morning to buy new tires without waiting forever. $762 later I have new rubber. Now my truck must last another 70,000 miles so I can get my money’s worth out of them.

The upshot of falling crude prices is that airfare has gotten cheap once again. I bought a ticket to Boston for the first week of December for a little under $300. I need to buy a ticket for Christmas in Oklahoma before it’s too late.

I picked up Boone Picken’s newest book this weekend and finished it Sunday. I didn’t know much about him until I saw an article in the WSJ about his wind plans. He sounds like quite a character and he’s still going at it. I’m interested in his Clean Energy Fuels company, how they provide natural gas service stations.

I was eyeing Guitar Hero: World Tour at Fry’s on Sunday. I was still feeling my wallet burn after buying tires, so I passed it up. I somehow found myself at Half-Price Books buying an old “Fundamentals of Corporate Finance” textbook instead. It seems way more interesting, but you can’t exactly share that experience with your friends.
