you know you are busy when ...

You come home at the end of the day, throw your keys in the bowl and set your groceries down and you remember:

Hey, I got paid!

Such was me yesterday. Work is easing up a little but there is another big rut roh. Data is off, and while it is not my fault booking what we got and officially how was I to know ... well, I feel responsible. Especially when the COO is asking. Especially as I got a Kindle gift card as a thank you about it Monday.

And I spent it already. Smile On a couple of e-books on Argentina and Buenos Aires, and another paper book on mosaicking.

Tonight Coinstar was my friend. I passed by a couple of people using it, bought something, then passed by it (unoccupied), and picked up the three coins the couple left. One was a 1963 silver dime. Its the fifth silver dime I've found (and I keep those). Last time I checked, the silver in a silver dime goes for $2.

Talked to a co worker who was a font of mis-information about investing. I don't think I'm going to bother. He did tell me about the old gomers who gave him the advice. Wonder what kind of retirement those gomers have.

Can't wait for Sunday, to kick back with the Duvall friends, some homemade pizza and a bottle of Mikes. Too bad I don't have a dog in the fight - critiquing the ads will have to do.

    Oh that happens to me all the time! A coworker will talk about paychecks and I am like "oh, did we get paid today?". They hate me. I know it.

    Do you ever sell your silver dimes?

  3. MonkeyMama Says:

    Pay day is also pretty incidental to me. (I know it's coming, and I don't cut it tight - so I usually just forget. Maybe it's good I don't have direct deposit. The check handed to me is my reminder. Wink ).

    CB - nope. I consider them my precious metals investment for the apocalypse. Mere silver, but sweet because it costs me nothing.

    When I first checked the reject slot I felt bad, thinking I've tricked somebody but after I watched someone dump coins in and noted that Coinstar warns you at least 3 separate times to clear the slot of coins. If you don't, I will. Its all based on weight. Metal slugs, sticky groddy pennies but sometimes ... the silver dime.
