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

01/04/2008 02/04/2008 USD1,032.77@1.045500LOWES #00498* CLARKS

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…





  1. Cat vomit? yeccch.. at least it was on the bedding, which I assume can be washed, since rugs are more of a problem at least in my house.

    I hope the resolution that came from last week was on that leaves you smiling, but at least some resolution is better than hanging out to dry wondering.. and I loved the Dr. Seuss quote.

    many good wishes.

  2. Hi Sass, Its been a while since I’ve had time to catch up on your blog. I received an email from you this morning, which got me thinking. Its slow this morning. And my bosses are all out of the office. I should sit down and enjoy me some Sass posts. And what a treat it has been. Your trip to Cuba and the pictures it has yielded are utterly amazing. Cuba happens to one of those many places where its not particularly easy for Americans to travel. I keep trying to tell people, that Michigan is a lot more like Onario then Alabama, but they don’t generally buy it.

  4. eric: it kinda sucks no matter what… but my floors are wood and tile so that’s actually better for me…

    the resolution was, and remains, excellent.

    lsd: it’s been a while since i’ve written any so that makes us even. speaking of, are you ever going to blog again?

    dude cuba is so freaking beautiful you can’t believe it. you should drive to toronto and fly there or something… there must be a way because it’s totally worth it and you should see it before the place changes. right now it’s still so innocent somehow…

    i know the upper peninsula is really in canada lsd so at least one person does…

    JT: thanks!

    and yup!
