hey guys i got nothing… well i got lots of stuff and no time and frankly the posts are sort of gone when i get here… so i’ll post some pics.
oh if you’re one of the people who knows about my angsty week last week? let it be known that the mess has been put to bed…
so to speak… not like the cat vomit i found on my sheets when i got home from seeing my sister…
mmm cat vomit.
i had the kind of week last week where i didn’t notice when my credit card information was scammed and mastercard called me up to tell me that they needed to cancel my credit card and would send me a new one.
i didn’t even notice when the thing got sent express post and i had to go get it at the post office. frankly that’s sort of reassuring really.
anyway i finally noticed when the

appeared on the bill.
like what the fuck?
anyway it turns out that what happens is they notice the suspicious transaction and call you to confirm that you didn’t do it. then they cancel your card and send you a new one…
BUT the freaking charge still goes through.
so suddenly i was over my limit and going to the mechanic for ‘weirdness’
weirdness is NEVER cheap.
so suddenly i got it. someone can totally screw with your finances doing this shit and moreso i’m super impressed with mastercard’s prompt response. they were awesome. okay, except for not telling that the charge was gonna show up on my bill.
but, to apologize they raised my limit by twelve hundred dollars so i can’t complain. furthermore they’re ‘comfortable leaving it at that level’ which means my little business is doing even better than i think it is.
so, i had a very strange and fully angsty week with financial weirdness that turned out to be a bonus because after that charge comes off my bill i can buy a wunda chair! actually, the angsty weirdness was a bonus too because a LOT of things have been resolved.
oh right, pics!
sorry the lame gallery can’t count…
