OK, so not hugely prosperous but still, a good day. First, Junior Slab gave me an iTune code! That doubled the number of songs to neurotically choose. It doesn’t feel like buying a CD for some reason. I buy all sorts of silly CDs (just ordered a Duran Duran singles box set, for example) but I can buy iTunes a song at a time and that makes me nervous. What if I waste the code on something uncool? What a weird thing to worry about.
When I got home I had a bunch of real mail and a padded envelope. One piece of real mail was from my car insurance. But it wasn’t a bill, it was a credit for $2.82. Then something plain that looked like an ad destined for my paper shredder was a check for $13.86 from the CD antitrust settlement.
The padded envelope was the most surprising thing: nine Pepsi bottle caps! Here I thought it was an odd ham radio thing, but it was a gift from a knitting blogger. All those hours of work on my sister’s blog and this could be the reward. Thanks Audrey!
