finance matters
I can't believe lunch at the cafeteria here costs $8 for an entree and a drink now. What a rip off.

In other financial news, DirecTV will pay you $100 to upgrade to an Hi-Def DVR if you threaten to leave and go to Dish. Or, at least if you're a good customer, they'll give you the DVR for $20 and then a $120 worth of programming credit over a year. Not too shabby. So, anyway, we now have a Hi-Def DVR in the living room at last. Woohoo!
