Random Thoughts Thursday

• I finished reading another John Grisham book.  Another great book as usual but also sad as it mentions some things that happened in the South.  I won’t mention it here but I think you can get the idea.

• RnR Chicago was this past weekend.  It is usually HOT and HUMID on race day.  This year it was mostly humid with a lot of rain.  Oh man, I would have been miserable out there.  I don’t mind a little rain for a short amount of time but it was pouring out there.  

• A few months ago I applied for a Starbucks Reward Credit Card.  The first time I used it, I got 250 stars (enough for 2 free drinks).  Then when I spent $500, I was rewarded with 2500 stars (enough for 20 drinks).  Yep, I am happy!  The only thing is that these expire in February.  I should be able to use them all up, right?  🙂  From now on, I will receive 1 star per $1 spent on Starbucks Card load and 1 star per $4 spent on all other purchases.  I will use this mainly for Starbucks purchases as I use my Southwest credit card for everything else.

Remember that time I wrote about a parking ticket that I received but that it was a mistake?  I got a letter letting me know that the ticket has been paid.  Umm, I didn’t pay for it but instead contested it.  Oh well, I won’t say anything else about it because at least I do not have to pay.

  1. Happy that you don’t have to pay for the parking ticket!

    That’s a really good deal that you got for Starbucks! I’m sure you’ll be able to use up all of the drink credits, especially once winter hits!

    • I am going to use that money that I saved from the ticket for a new pair of shoes. I am looking at the Levitates. Have you heard of them?

Thank you for your comment!
