Credit Card Hell

Saw this today, and wanted to share. Credit card debt is evil, folks!

I do, however, use my American Express regularly to get the rebate every year (just received a check for over $400 last week). BUT.... I pay it off every single month, without fail.

If you have credit card debt, figure out a plan to climb out of the hole ASAP. Your future financial well-being depends upon it!

Regarding some of the ice issues at the Vancouver Winter Olympics...

Me: One of my friends wondered if there was zamboni tampering going on.
Kayla: What's a zamboni?
Me: The machine that lays down the smooth ice for the skaters.
Kayla: Oh! I thought you were talking about a tribe or something.

Teacher FAIL

Note from Lu's teacher:

"We would appreciate it if your student could bring a treat (our theme is sweets) to class tomorrow....It is not required that your student bring something, but the entire class will appreciate it if we have lots of goodies to sample....I would greatly prefer NO SODA. We can drink water; it's good for us!"
