    My boyfriend and I both entered a raffle for a 10 gallon tank and a pack of gravel from Petsmart today. He won, which means I won since I'm the fish-a-holic. So not only did I have an extra raffle ticket so to speak, but I already have 3 spare tanks at home. :oops:
    On the other hand, those other tanks need to be disinfected and scrubbed down and since the hose is still off for the winter... well, I get to set up the one I won this weekend.

    I mean, at some point I will be utilizing all of the tanks for my guppy breeding operation so I guess it's not that bad, right?

    I didn't check to see if my cat wanted to come inside before I went to bed.

    I hope they’re ok!
    If you did something like that in my neighborhood, the cat would get eaten by coyotes.
    We want a kitty so bad but the worry of coyotes eating them prevents us from getting one..

    Haha, thanks. She's fine. No coyotes here, but when we were in the NW, we were more cautious.

    I partied in a pitch black graveyard all night long. Return of the Living Dead style. As a direct result, I overslept and missed today’s Galaxy People drop. Sad, but I suppose worse things have happened to better people.

    I was lazy as hell today instead of painting like I should have been doing.

    I spat on a bunch of bananas in the grocery store because they were looking at me funny

    Fml, I just put a deposit on my wedding (venue/caterers/etc.). I think I’m gonna be sick *vomit emoji*. Man, I still have 13 months to get the funds together, but this is gonna be rough! I hope I can pull this off?

    I slowed it down at the gym when a guy told me to hurry it up.

    I dig through the return trays of Coinstar machines for rejected items that people leave there. It's a nasty habit.

    More often than not, it's just finding a couple of pennies that were too beat up to be recognized as such by the machine. Sometimes it's dead watch batteries or arcade tokens. Once I found an SD card from someone's phone, all sorts of stuff was on there like a PDF of a boarding pass and a picture of the owner's girlfriend in her underwear. These aren't the things I'm looking for, though, because I collect coins.

    Sometimes I get lucky and come across foreign coins. Usually they're Euros, UK pounds/pence, or Canadian dollars/cents, but occasionally I will find something really interesting from South America or the Middle East. In one scoop, I got coins from two African countries and an Australian penny, which they haven't minted in years.

    Sometimes, though, I get really lucky:

    These are pre-1965 quarters and dimes that I've scooped out since January. Six quarters and ten dimes, $2.50 face value. These coins are 90% silver instead of the modern copper/zinc mix of modern coins, so the machine rejects them because they're the wrong weight. They don't have any numismatic value (meaning they're not something coin collectors would be interested in), but according to http://www.coinflation.com/ which tracks the current market values of previous metals, I'm holding about $29 worth of silver here. If I sold them at one of those cash for gold stores I'd probably only get around $19, but it's still "found money."

    I've pulled at least $200 in silver coins out of circulation over the past few years through occasional coin roll hunting, buying loose items out of teller trays, and scrounging from change machines. I also briefly dated a bank manager which netted some interesting stuff. There is a special electric thrill when I come across them in a Coinstar tray, though, and the recurring silly fantasy that "after the shit hits the fan" I'll be able to trade them for cases of cat food.

    So, am I stealing? If so, that's my ongoing sin.

    Here's another silver quarter and a St. Anthony medallion I found on Saturday. Since the original owner abandoned the medallion I guess they're not being actively protected from, uh, whatever St. Anthony protects you from. Finding and keeping someone else's religious item has got to be a sin, right?

    Also looks like St. Anthony is a gray alien or something. (Poking fun at a religious figure is certainly a sin.)

    The sin is in the thought, some say, and I almost went to White Castle today.

    Not sinful, so much as it's just stupid, but I didn't know where else to express it. Broke a rib on my right side this past Saturday, and have yet to see anyone about it. Probably not going to. Converge on the 16th!!! :D

    The irony is you are supposed to pray to St Anthony when something is lost and he will "guide your way" to it :lol:

    Congratulations! :D Try to keep it simple and small, and go for quality arrangements! Simplicity is beautiful, and without all the fuss and bother, you stand a better chance of enjoying the ceremony ;)
