Woohoo! Today I got a check for $500 in the mail. Out of the blue. It has something to do with ATT Wireless, I picked up some options in the course of our companies revolving door ownership over the last few years and I once owned some wireless stock, but I thought I’d long ago cashed everything out during the cut your losses days. I suppose I’ll have to go back and figure out where it came from. Pennies from heaven!

I’d like to say I’m going to go out and buy something fun with it, like an i-Pod, but it’s probably going to go against that Visa balance that just seems to be slowly creeping up. We stuck our cards in a drawer this week and have vowed that we’re not spending any money for a week, just to make a dent in that life sucking balance. Lottery tickets, that’s the answer.

  2. WooHoo… nice little wind-fall. Tough question… do you act responsibly and pay debts? … or go on a splurge? I know which ‘feels’ better.

  3. I’d love to have a lottery here. At least I’d have little scraps of paper to show where my money got wasted.

  4. Yes get an iPod!  I have one and I can’t think of a greater modern invention since the lightbulb!  Or the telephone. 

    It’s remarkably cool.  Indescribably perfect.  And it fits in the palm of your hand.

    I should become an advertising exec for Apple.


  5. There’s a new iPod out there that will come with all of U2’s songs when you download them from iTunes.  It’s a pretty good deal (if you’re a U2 fan, that is).  Would that check have anything to do with the recent Cingular/ATT merger??
