At Last!
As of today, I am, quite happily, free of credit card debt. After years and years of paying, shifting and bouncing between about 8-9 cards - and a personal loan.. they're done. From here on in, it's pay the charges off every month, and build the points on the Amazon.com or United Airlines cars, the smart way. I'm not financially safe.. there's still one $1500 loan to get cleared this year... but at least, this take is done. Six years and three months after Baylor- almost as long as I spent there. It's feeling good, indeed.

So, naturally, I made a small splurge to suck away more money each month, with www.gamefly.com. Even this is a cost-saving call, though.. given it's been 3 months I've had the PSP and spent nearly $100 on games/movies for it, and Gamefly will be $15 a month on the single-disk option, it should be a fairly smart way to go. (Incidentally, anyone want to buy a UMD of <i>Shaun of The Dead</i> or <i>Lumines</i>?)

Also, Anthrocon plans are looking to take a bit more shape. The room (2 double beds at the Westin) has been booked a while, but roommate assembly has been, as usual, a fairly slow process.I, Buran, and Slickpuppy will be rooming together, but we're looking for a fourth for bridge. Anyone who is going to Anthrocon, please, let me know; even the fact that you'll be there and already have a room booked will help with this process. If you are looking, I'm easily contactable here, page-mailed, emailed, SMSed at 860-$-961-$-6462. The room is booked Thursday to Sunday, though it's not a requirement someone be there all those nights.

Now maybe you can make that fortune. Good to hear you succeeded I always like knowing when folks get out of debt from the evil credit card companies. Not as bad as evil Wal-Mart.

As usual Anthrocon is fairly close to one of my typical conventions I attend and run events at. Besides from what I have been told the San Jose one is milder than AC. Nonetheless have a great time at it!

Wal-Mart is a necessary evil, but yes.. no more debt owed to Discover, Chase, Bank of America or any such. Now they're going to work on my terms,a nd give me credits and stuffs. ;)

I hope one year we'll get you up int his neck of the woods again, to AC or up to CT. Enjoy your convention too!
