Thank You!

January 25th, 2008 at 02:24 am

Jeffrey emailed me several days ago and told me I had won second place in the "Things I Wish I Had Known" contest. I just wanted to say a big, heartfelt "Thank You" to everyone who voted for me. I was really surprise. You can be sure this money is going straight to the credit card.

Global Testmarket

Hi. Has anyone out there cashed in points at Global Testmarket. I just cashed mine in and am confused about the amount of check I will get. It's supposed to be 5 cents for point. So, if I'm doing my math right, I multiply .05 by 1000 and get $50.00. Can that be right?

I have never gotten $50.00 from a survey company before. This one is going right to the credit card.

Things That I Wish I Had Know When I Was Younger

These are just a few of the things I wish I had known when I was younger.

1. Credit cards are not like coupons. You have to pay them back.

2. To appreciate those early years in your life when the biggest decision you have to make is chocolate or vanilla ice cream. I wanted freedom to make my own choices. Little did I know with freedom comes responsibility. (That almost sounds like a line from the Spiderman movie.)

3. To tone down my wide-eyed ambition enough to stop and smell the roses. My mother told me from the time I was born, I was like I was on a mission to do something and had to do it now. She used to call me "bulldog."

4. To pay attention more to what my Dad had to say. He died when I was 10 years old, so I did not get much of a chance to absorb his wisdom.

Oh, to be as calm and without a care as these cats.
