Welcome to my Life

I had a balance of $67.86 on one of my credit cards, which I decided to pay through my banks online bill pay. The payment came out of my account as $6786. Yeah, only off by a few THOUSAND dollars (which, believe it or not, I don't have.) Sweet!

After many hours on the phone today I do not have this resolved. The bank won't do anything about it and the best the card can offer me is they will TRY to get a refund overnighted to me before we leave.

Hmm, and if they don't try hard enough?
Merry Fricking Christmas.

A lady on BART today stopped me to tell me that she loved my boots because they reminded her of home - Canada.  Eh?

Christmas Cookies

So, my first solo attempt at the famous anise cut-out cookies was a success! The recipe is from the 70's and my mom has used it every single year as long as I can remember. You can't mess with a classic!

Of course my beautiful new mixer helped! The old one was broken and a certain retailer exchanged it for us! Oh and yes, this one is PINK!

"Come on mom! I want cookies too!"

People never cease to amaze me.

So I got downtown early today and decided to hit the post office before work instead of at lunch. I had a ton of crap to mail but I couldn't do the APC because some had e-DC pre-printed blah blah I had to go to the counter. So its like 8:34am (all of 4 minutes after they opened) and there's like 4 people in line in front of me. Ok not so bad right? Well there's 2 peope working (slowly, of course) and at one of them there is this Blonde Bitch with like, literally, 50 or 60 Christmas cards. She feels the need to have the worker weigh EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. before she stamps it. NONE of them ended up weighing extra but she did every last one this way. And it took FOREVER. Seriously.

On the plus side i think I made some friends with the folks in line in front of my while we wondered out loud what was wrong with this nitwit and really, if she was that concerned, why she didn't just do this on her own at the APC. Blonde Bitch is lucky because I'm pretty sure everyone was thisclose to rioting as she kept pulling those cards out of her bag.

None of my packages were fragile, they would have survived hitting her head at 60 mph.

Why do I love my fake tree?

Because when we used to do real trees this was ALWAYS us! No. Matter. What.
