I was at Sam's Club late last night when a huge thunderstorm hit. You could hear the torrential rains even inside the store. Fortunately they have a covered loading area, unlike Costco, so I was able to load the stuff without getting soaked. I was also apparently the only person who brought an umbrella.
Picked up a 50 pound bag of popcorn. That should last a while.
Last night I signed up for the Nebraska Lottery's free MVP program. They gave me a coupon for a free Pick 5 ticket. The jackpot is currently $102,000. I went to the minimarket in town and got my free ticket this afternoon, then stopped next door at the Subway for a $5 footlong. Laying on the counter was a coupon for a free MegaMillions lottery ticket, so after getting my order, I went back to the minimart and got that ticket. That $5 footlong could end up winning me $31 million.
In case you've been living under a rock for the past week, Steam is giving away free copies of Portal until May 24th. Minimum requirements are a 1.7 GHz processor, 512MB RAM, a DirectX 8.1 compatible graphics card, Windows 2000 or higher. If you meet those minimums, be sure to download. If you don't meet those minimum requirements, GET IT ANYWAY! Once you "purchase" it, you'll have it in your Steam account for life, so you'll be able to download and install it on a future computer.
