Paying off credit cards...

I did it. Today. Just about 20 minutes ago, as a matter of fact... I paid off my Lane Bryant Card. Completely. Now I have to call and close it; and of course then will then charge me interest from the time the bill was sent to the time I paid it off, so I'll have to pay a little bit of that.

Credit card companies are annoying.

But as soon as this card is closed, I will only have 1 credit card left, and the only balance on that is for my new awesome glasses. It's the card I've had since I was 18 and I no longer carry a balance on it.

Hurray for no credit card debt!!!

Some mini-updates and promises...

I finally have all of my pictures on my laptop from Chicago and a pic of the aforementioned new glasses (a coworker today called them 'mod' haha) but instead of blogging and posting them this weekend, I messed around online instead*. sorry =0( So, my promise to you all is that by the end of the week, there will be pictures!!! I mean it... I will... it might be Saturday before I make it back to Panera and their lovely free wifi, but By Saturday midnight I will post pictures of the new specs and the weekend vacation.

*By messing around, I mean that I was taking the Myers-Briggs personality test. RubyRed talked me into it! haha... very interesting stuff, my friends. I think everyone should take it!! I really, really want to know what everyone is!!! so very intriguing... =0)

I'll tell you what I am if you tell me what you are...

Chicago: A Study in Two Parts

Part I: Observation

[Mr. Overly-Tanned at Nashville's Airport] Yeah Dude she's having a baby, so we're having kind of a bachelor party...

[Metra Station Sign] "Children left unsupervised will be given two lattes and a free puppy"

[Shirt in a very democratic store] Monica Lewinsky's ex-boyfriends wife for president

[on the train] I took a rocket to the moon, and blew up a martian!

[also on the train] ...and all the girls painted their right thumbnail red, so they'd know it was their right hand; but the boys didn't want their nails polished, so we put X's on them and said "Aaarrrggghhh" like pirates...

[walking in the city] Bacon & Cheese

[a random Irish pub] All we have are really bad cookies

Part II: Conversational Tidbits

* There are only two reasons for cornfields:
1. Alien signs
2. 'Will You Marry Me' signs

* Sometimes they are one in the same...

* I've waited my entire life for a $4 bottle of liquor!!

* I can't believe we're really doing this...

* My hands are turning blue... I should probably go to the hospital

* Crystal, you'll never guess where we are!! DALLAS!!!
(Crystal's response: ARE YOU SERIOUS??)

* Look!! They're perfect parallel lines!

* I really feel like a dork today for wearing green.

* We saw Celtic Woman in Ireland where I started blogging and had lunch with Dick Cheney; It's not pretentious, it's a fact.

* I need one of those monkey's on my back.

* What time is it? I just wanted to tell you you're really pretty.

(there will be pictures following, but rubyred has already posted these)

An Old Irish Blessing

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

I'm going to Chicago today,

and I really feel like I'm forgetting to pack something. This is the first time I'm only taking a carry-on and I made a nice list and I know I'm not missing anything... but I still feel like I am.

I was supposed to get my new glasses today, but they're not in yet. I just called =0(

Hopefully sometime next week... I'm bummed =0(
