I got a gift certificate prize for all my hard work at my job, and so I am going to spend it. I can actually choose from a few different places and get gift certificates for each totalling up to $n.
Just to clear out the open tabs in Mojira:
My father's ashes are sitting on my dinner table (which I have only used maybe twice to eat off of) and I had a huge blowup fight with my bosses today (it was like teenager vs. mom & dad, only I was the composed one) after which all my collegues told me that I said everything they wanted to say (thanks for speaking up at the time when I actually needed the support, guys), so you can see why I'd want to be distracted by glittering prizes (vs. endless compromises).
If I could put up a blacklist on my snail mail, I would bounce all messages from Delaware.
