Well, this is the first time I’ve ever eBayed for anything (check the “bid history” link), and I like it! It’s kind of fun, and if you do a little research, you can stand to get a pretty good deal, too! This auction ends tomorrow at 9:17am PST, so I (and you) will know if I won soon. 🙂
This particular seller doesn’t accept payment through Paypal (which I signed up for just two days ago, and who, I might add, Karen Barker’s husband works for in California), so my only question now is how much my bank will charge me to get a money order done up.
Here’s a neat Unix trick you can run from the command line to strip out all lines from a file containing the pattern you specify.
You learn something every day! 🙂
I tried to get a credit card at my bank today. Luckily I only had to wait about 30 seconds after filling out a form for this little gem:
So, for now it looks like I just have to wait for my Florida driver’s license to come in. Then I’ll be able to apply for a Target credit card. Yay.
Went into Target today to apply for one of their credit cards. None of my Canadian credit counts down here, so I have to start with department stores.
This involved filling out a big form with my address, social security number, birth date, home phone, work phone, previous address, and other details. My application was rejected because I didn’t have a US driver’s license with a picture yet. That’s fine, I didn’t meet their requirements. But then they wanted to keep my rejected application. *That* I had a problem with. They said they’d keep it in their safe for me. I said that I wanted it back. They wouldn’t give it to me. I asked why, and the best answer they could give me (and believe me, it’s not very good) was that it’s store policy. Ugh.
Meta-rant: I never had any rants before I started blogging.
So whilst at Target picking up an 25′ phone extension cord so I could place my computer anywhere in my tiny apartment, I picked up Sheryl Crow‘s new album, “C’mon C’mon” for $13.99. That’s $20.99 Canadian. Yikes.
But it’s worth every penny. Every song on the album is strong melodically and lyrically, and of course, features Sheryl Crow’s strong vocals. I found this album begging me to play it again. I can’t wait to play it in my car.
There’s a number of pleasant production/arrangement surprises on the album too. I won’t spoil it here, though. Just go buy it already. 🙂
