Despite Our Differences …

… I still don’t have the new IG album!!

Let’s see. What do I NOT have..

A driver’s license. But I will have a replacement in approximately 5 business days.
A social security card. I need to do something about that.
A debit card. New ones in 7-10 business days.
Several credit cards. New ones in 7-10 business days.
Many many many many many assorted receipts from Target, Safeway and Costco. Those, I don’t miss.

On the plus side, there has been no activity on any of our accounts… that we haven’t initiated. This is so very very good.

I don’t even have the ability to buy the new album on amazon, because the credit card accounts have now been closed and new numbers have not yet been forthcoming, and the debit card number has been shut down. I don’t know what that one was anyway.

One good thing is I don’t have to close our checking account. That would have been SUCH a big pain in the ass. The nice lady at USAA said that as long as I keep on top of the activity in the account, we should be ok. The checks that are gone have been blocked, so the only danger is if someone tries something fancy with the routing number and the checking account number. Which I will be WATCHING for! I also put a security alert on my credit report (because I’m dumb and had my SS card in my wallet, once again, I SUCK), so that if anyone tries to do anything, they have to call me first. At least, that’s what I think happens. It’s been a long day.

Honestly, I think it is still in the “lost” category, and not the “stolen” category. But I have spent a great deal of energy and time pestering employees, that if it hasn’t moved out of the lost category by now, it’s going to stay there, or eventually be in the stolen category.
2 things that really suck … And by “really suck”, I mean, after all the super suckiness above..

  1. I had that wallet for close to 7 years, and it was the best wallet I’ve ever owned. My mom bought it for me at Nordstrom’s for $50. I would never have spent that much for a wallet, but if you take that 50 bucks and divide it by every day I used it for the last 7 years, I would have to say it was a steal. This is a trick a friend of mine uses to justify spending money. She just hollers, “DIVIDE IT BY THE DAY!” and charges it. It really does make sense though. If you love and use something a lot, it IS worth it. I’ve learned that in the last 7 years at least.
  2. I still don’t have the new IG album. James stopped on his way home from class to get me a copy, but no dice. But I am going to go steal James’ debit card here as soon as I hit publish, and order the damn thing already.
  3. Third (just pretend I said 3 things up there), now that I’ve gotten past all the sucky all-your-personal-shit-is-gone stuff, I really really really want some of those shoes/boots I tried on at TJ Maxx. Seriously. They were cute as hell and cheap to boot. (Get it? BOOT! Oh I kill myself.) As soon as I get access to money in one of the conventional ways, I’m going to go buy some. TJ Maxx, I’ll see YOU in 7-10 business days!

– amy has to get back to her Project Runway Season 2 marathon since THERE WAS NO PR LAST NIGHT OH THE INSANITY HOW DO THEY EXPECT ME TO CONTINUE TO LIVE!!! It’s a good thing I have a backup PR fix ready, or I may have collapsed. Disc 3 has arrived – “Designers! Up until now, you’ve all f**king sucked.”
