1. Splenda = ZOMG AFTERTASTE. Meijer had some of this Diet Coke made with Splenda instead of NutraSweet. I'll take my cancer-inducing aspartame back, kthx. Hawaiian Punch made with Splenda tastes fine at first sip, but once you swallow it, you get that Keystone Light trademark BITTER BEER FACE. Except replace BEER with 5% FRUIT JUICE BEVERAGE.

2. Am currently in new apartment. Wireless hi-speed worky! yay! What should I download? XD

3. IHOP = teh suck. 60 minute wait for food, 10 minute wait for silverware on TOP of that. I dunno, I come from that school of thinking that if an omelet is served to you steaming hot, it should be eaten and enjoyed while it's STILL steaming hot -- not lukewarm. >_< Restaurant Industry 2, Dusty 0.

4. Also while in Meijer, I saw a former Kmart co-worker as a Meijer employee. Freaky. o.o;

Today was tiring in every sense of the word -- emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It's one of those days that you wish would have never happened, but you know it has to in order to move on -- like April 15th, if that analogy makes any sense at all. My brain is pretty cloudy as it is right now. In fact, I probably won't want to recall the events in detail for a while.

Now off for some much-deserved sleep, and hopefully things will stabilize a little while I dream of being less tired. XD

Went to [ profile] sandyriley's house for fish and pool (and good lord no not the swimming kind; it snowed all day here. SNOWED! AT THE END OF FRICKING APRIL!!!!!!) A little irritated at Mom because she forgot that I had to be at work at 6 am tomorrow morning, but this shall pass... probably as I come home tomorrow afternoon and crash like Windows ME. *is shot for bad computer-geek joke*

Fred, I hope your day was good... I heard it was busy. *snugs with you* Sorry I didn't catch you today.

Good news: My Direct Deposit hits my accounts on Thursdays, not Fridays, as I first thought. So it was in there today.
Bad news: All this time, I've thought the online info from 5/3 was up-to-date... it's a day behind. >_<

Good news: I figured out why 5/3 cancelled my check card in the first place.
REALLY REALLY BAD NEWS: It was because they had let someone steal my card number, along with many others in the 5/3 system.


...which I did before work today. I wasn't as pissed at 5/3 for canceling my check card as I was them compromising my security and putting me at risk for identity theft. They offered to send me a new check card, and I told them no thanks, I was switching banks now. Mom, of course, a die-hard 5/3 fan, is upset at me for doing so, but then again, it's not her card that's been compromised. She'll get over it, eventually, and she'll cash my rent checks regardless of which bank they're drawn upon, so long as the money's there. *shrug*

Anyway, I couldn't completely cancel the account because I wrote some checks to Kroger for groceries yesterday. So I withdrew all but $100 from the 5/3 account to cover those checks, and drove directly over to PNC bank. Not only did they still have the email-alert deal, but I also got in on a pretty sweet promotion - with my first direct-deposit, PNC will boost that deposit by $101. *thumbs up* Free money is always good! :DDDDDD Plus the account does earn interest, which I didn't know. :D True, it's only, 0.005% or some insane lowball amount like that, but it's still more than 0%. ^_^

So all in all, a very very good day. *ticks good things off on fingers* I'm ridding myself of a thorn that's been in my side for 5 years, I'm gonna get $101 more than I thought I'd get, my Iowa return is in the mail, it was a gorgeous day today, it was uneventful yet fulfiling at work, I paid on my Wal-Mart lay-a-way, and I got out of work 2 whole hours early.

Life is good. ^____^
