Going to the beach

It is supposed to be REALLY cold on thursday and all I can think about is going to the beach in St. Lucia. I am dreaming of Pigeon Point beach and I can feel the water in my mind. I might even go to Anse LaRaye beach since our house is about 5 minutes from the beach. Okay now why did I start thinking about this? Now I am craving a beach lime. I can just see myself taking some baked macaroni and red beans and fried fish and lime squash...

$10 bet…day 2

I made a bet with my boyfriend on Sunday 11/26/06 that I could lose 10lbs by Sunday 12/26/06. Why? Hmmmmmmmmm, maybe I went a little bit crazy for a few seconds. He did not think I could do it so we got the amount whittled to 5lbs lost in the two week period. That really got my blood boiling and I am convinced I can do it. In fact I will do more than 5 lbs and we will see what he has to say to that! Answers to some of the burning...

Blog’s worth

Can I cash that in and run off to Hawaii and buy a condo on the beach? Or maybe I can get myself a blue Lexus Rx 400 like I always wanted. Nah, I am just playing. I put in a few other blog URLs for fun just to see the values they would come up...

After that mini crisis with the credit card payment I decided to check my credit score. I hauled out my current credit cards so that I could compare the numbers with what showed up on the report. Red Flag! There is a card that I do not hold in my hand that is showing up on the report. No….I called customer service and told them I do have one card with their company but my credit report is showing that I have two. The lady says...

Big mistake

On a point of order…I got this fixed but did not want to delete the post. I called the credit card company and there was a problem with the website. I did pay on time…and the payment did go through. The website was just showing the wrong information. 11/26/06 Today I noticed that I had committed a debt-reduction sin. I completely forgot to check my software for the due date of one of my credit card...

Where did Citgo go?

I recently wrote about getting 3 cents off gas when you use your gas card. Well those gas cards were run by Circle K-Citgo gas stations. All of the Circle K-Citgo stores have been replaced with Valero gas stations. Valero does not offer the gas card with the 3 cent per gallon discount. I guess those gas savings are all gone now? Where oh where did Citgo go? Now I have to pay regular price for gas just like everyone else who did not...
