Coins and Bills

What is the going rate for the Tooth Fairy these days?
Ask MeFi answers.

I got my first Presidential (Madison) coin in change today, which is odd because they've been out for a year now, right? It came from a stamp vending machine that also gave me a charred nickel. We are currently dissolving the 'char' with Mountain Dew in a coworker's cube overnight. Yes, sometimes our work is not stimulating enough and we have to entertain ourselves.

Anyway, the Ask MeFi question is rather appropriate since most of them stress that you should use coins and not bills.

Speaking of coins vs. bills, I think it's high time we forced the switch to dollar coins by lowering the number of bills printed each year.

I'm the One That I Want

22. I'm the One That I Want by Margaret Cho

A book about her painful childhood, drug use, bad romances, sucky career problems, body image issues and final descent into alcoholism. But it is really funny.

Dead trees

My book list updates since the end of August:
17. Life of Pi
18. The Amber Spyglass
19. Girls' Night Out
20. Twilight
21. The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America

Okay, if I am going to get to 33 by March 11th, 2009, I only need to read 12 more. I totally slacked off on my personal reading while I was taking the Writing class. It didn't help that we had to read 3-5 essays each week.

Presidential Dreams

Last night I dreamt that Barack Obama was trying to get into my sister's apartment building to knock on some doors. I was there and saw a man refuse him entry. He started walking away and I called out to him, "Barack! I'll get you in!" I was about to let him in when another guy came to open the door.

I have an Amazon wishlist and IMDB and Netflix to help me remember which books and movies I want to buy or watch, but I have now joined 3 more sites that all keep track of what I have read, am reading and want to read.

All Consuming - part of 43 things. This site includes Music, Movies and Food& Drink categories.
