Money, TV and Hamburg...

First the good news - I found out today that my raise has totaled a whopping $75 increase per paycheque. I estimated anywhere from $35-65 but this is just unbelievable. I can't wait till October when CPP and EI max out and I get an additional $125 per paycheque :-) This last year of debt management may actually turn out to be tolerable. Now I don't feel as guilty about spending $18 on shoes from Payless.

Second, the audit - yes a lot of people complain when they are being audited but I know the financial records for the office are perfect. In about two weeks it will all be over, unfortunately. I say 'unfortunately' because our auditor is gorgeous.

As for the bad news of the day - the latest rumors do not look positive for the renewal of Moonlight for a second season. Tomorrow is the official announcement of the CBS 08/09 schedule.  Apparently the CBS execs ares really excited about a bunch of new dramas and may not have room for Moonlight  in their lineup. What dramas might those be....CSI: Baton Rouge?? Adding Big Brother on another night?? What are these people thinking??  This is the same network that cancelled Jericho only to bring it back again thanks to the overwhelming fan support (...and then cancel it again after the season was over). The more I look at their schedule the more I realize this show should not have been part of the CBS lineup. Is it possible that another network could pick it up if CBS decided not to renew it? I truly hope so.

American Idol - Final Three tonight. I think we are at the point where I can officially stop watching it for the remainder of the season. Syesha is the best pure singer left. In other words, Syesha is destined be voted out tomorrow night. MEH.

Day Two of Hamburg...Moya and Ferrer have advanced. Gasquet plays later today. Roger, Rafa and Nole are still on the practice courts for now. It should get interesting tomorrow.

What a wonderful surprise to get a better-than-expected pay rise! Congratulations!

I'm sorry about your TV shows possibly being cancelled. I don't watch those ones, although I've heard good things about them.

This time around I didn't watch American Idol because I did watch 'Big Brother 9'. LOL. I'll have to catch the next 'Idol'. Do you watch Canadian Idol? I haven't seen that since the first two seasons.

LOL. I watch far too much football and DVDs. It doesn't leave much time for anything else. XD

I watched Big Brother 9 as well. I only started watching Big Brother last year when Dick won. That season was exciting but I was pretty much frustrated by everyone on Big Brother 9 this year. Choosing between Ryan and Adam was like deciding between the lesser of two evils. I do watch Canadian Idol as well. I never saw the first season of it but did watch season two with Kalan and Jacob, both of whom I loved. I still think they were the most memorable of the Canadian Idol contestants (arguably, more memorable than most of the American Idol contestants as well!)

You do watch a lot of football *LOL* but I am starting to realize how enjoyable that addiction can be!!

Oh, I hear you! I didn't see #8 but saw all 7 prior to that! The 'couple' idea seemed to backfire. I was hoping Sheila would go all the way, but...oh well.
I didn't even watch the final.

Oh tell me about it! After Kalan and Jacob, I never watched Canadian Idol again. I just never thought they'd do better than Season 2. However, I might start watching again now that some time has passed. Ditto for American Idol.

OMG, I do tend to get obsessed with things. Football is my latest craze, although I can't see ever getting bored with it. I just heard that David Beckham is thinking of doing a Football Idol show. LOL. Actually, Chelsea have already done that. Their "Football Icons" show on FOXSW does just that. I've seen the first two seasons and it's very enjoyable.

WOO HOO!!! Told you that it would be closer to $100.

BASTARDS! Those motherf*ing bastards!
