This week on Totes Awesome Channel, we talk about our ideal meals. You can find mine below.
Danielle sent me a beautiful handmade postcard this week.
A longtime collector of quotes, I’m always happy to receive them. If you can’t read the script, it says, â€œOnly a life lived for others is worth living.â€ – Albert Einstein
Also in the mail this week, was a mandatory legal notice! My insurance company has a class action lawsuit filed against them. It was a letter briefing me on the lawsuit and then it listed my policy number, what I paid, and how much I could earn if they settle. They are shelling out millions if they settle. Want to guess how much I could receive?
28 cents! I could not stop laughing. Sadly it doesn’t pay out til next year if it pays out. Otherwise, I’d totally get in on that so I could put “Class Action Lawsuit” and 28 cents into my additional income spreadsheet this year.
In just one week, Alan and I have seen 5 movies together. He’s been sick so we’ve been hitting up the Netflix. Here are one/two-liner reviews.
X-Men First Class (2011) – Much better than Wolverine, the last X-Men movie, but not amazing.
Sgt. Bilko (1996) – Silly Steve Martin film; I fell asleep.
Searching for Bobby Fisher (1993) – One of Alan’s favorites, I had no idea it was based on a true story.
Billy Elliot (2000) – Since Alan made me watch Searching for Bobby Fisher, I in kind made him watch Billy Elliot. One of my favorite movies.
Super 8 (2011) – We saw this in an IMAX theatre last night. Loved it and I may have screamed out loud.
I’ve had my cell phone number for 12 years now. For the first year I got calls weekly asking for a Debra. After that first year, the calls tapered off to maybe quarterly for a few years. Now, I still get calls for her every 6 months or so. I almost forgot about Debra until an elderly lady called this morning asking for her.
Debra, where did you go all these years? It seems like you just disappeared on a slew of people. Hope you’re okay.
Would you like a riddle to tease your friends with?
Alan teased me with this and someone tweeted me the answer this morning.
