That sounds kinky. How would more two-way work, by the way?
For anyone who might be confused right now, Mr. Bloggerific posted a comment about wanting more two-way communication with me. I'm a decent girl so I was naturally offended by the comment. Also, I don't know how more two way would work.
Would a weekly "Post Topic Requests" work? A weekly "Ask Me Anything You Want" post suffice? You tell me. I'll tell you why this worries me.
What if I hold such free-for-alls and no one cares? Then I look like a total narcissist. Hey guys, what do you want to know about me?! And everyone's like, "Uh, nothing." And then I'd be like, "Are you sure? I'm really really interesting!" And the minute section of the blogosphere that even knew I existed would be all, "Seriously, get over yourself."
Luckily, I AM a total narcissist. Consider Mr. B's suggestion on the table. Help me help you help my narcissism.
Changing the subject, here's a good piece of advice I should have figured out over a year, or $98 dollars, ago: Never accept an offer that's "free for the first thirty days." I got my Chase Visa bill (Formerly Bank One, which was formerly First Card) today and my amount owed was $34.00. That seems like a fairly low amount, except when you consider the fact that I never use the card. For over a year, I have a monthly $9.00 charge that appears on the card. Most people would probably call to find out what the charge was. Me? I ignore it, thinking it's kind of cute that I have a monthly charge of just $9.00. Until today, when I open my bill and find I owe $34. I guess I paid my bill late last month and am now being penalized with a $15.00 late charge and a $1.00 finance charge. I owed a mere $9.00. My penalty is almost twice as much as I owe. This is why I loathe both credit card companies AND the City of Los Angeles' parking enforcement Nazis.
I got so angry I...cancelled the service I never use that charges me 9 bucks a month. And I let Chase know they screwed with the wrong customer. I was like, "Hey multibillion dollar corporation, you just late-fee-ed yourself out of a minimum monthly balance of 9 bucks. Stew on that!" I actually complained to the customer service representative and told her I hated banks, but not her personally, and that I was mad, although since I was dealing with a corporation, it probably didn't matter. She said she'd put a request to waive this month's late fee.
Sorry. This is me just venting. But I seriously hate what credit card companies can get away with. And I love that Congress passed a bankruptcy bill that will let these multibillion dollar corporations screw us out of our hard-earned money even more, even though the majority of people who file bankruptcy claims do so because they're unable to pay huge medical costs. I guess the moral is, don't get sick.
This post is all over the board. Next one will be more focused.
