The photo to the right is my business idea for a mall, a bank of slurpee machines with every conceivable flavour. Here they are selling for $3.00.
I think it cost $100,000 to buy a video.
Other than going to the stampede, we got some money converted to Hong Kong Dollars as well as Australia Dollars. I don't know if I told you this but about six months ago, my bank tried to lower my ATM daily withdrawl limit to $500 because I had never actually used my entire limit in the previous year. As if I have enough money or reasons to willy-nilly take out $1000 from my account every day. I call them and told them that, while yes I understand that they are doing it for my protection, I keep my pin secret and it is a real pain in the ass to not to be able to take out $1000+ if the occasion so requires.
It's rare that I need to take out my limit, and even more rare that it is a problem when I do because you can just use debit to buy anything you might need. Yesterday was the exception, we wanted to buy mini-doughnuts at the stampede. They don't take debit or credit cards. Then we wanted to get milkshakes at Peter's Drive-in. They also don't take debit or credit cards. Apparently you can't just call the bank and get the limit raised by $20 and they won't tell you the pin number to your credit card so that you can get a cash advance either. I guess there is nothing I can do about that though.
Two more sleeps untill we are on our way. HooRay!
