journal page from April 20, 2009 and some other stuff...
Found out yesterday morning that I can now add myself to the long list of identity theft victims. GRRRRRRR! I logged in to pay my credit card bill only to discover that there was a weird charge on my account for over $100 worth of FLOWERS that I did NOT order. (I've never paid $100 in my life for flowers!) I also noticed that my almost paid off card only had $44 left on it! WTF? I called the credit card company (who were very nice and helpful) and spoke with 3 different people. I found out I wasn't responsible for the charges (lots of $ on CLOTHING. WTF? I don't shop at Macy's or Coldwater Creek!) but the whole thought of it is SCARY!!!!!!!!!! I have paperwork coming that I have to fill out. I did go to the West Hollywood Sheriff's office and filed a report. Lesson learned-check your credit cards and check them often. Someone out there is a big fucking asshole!
Then, I go to Paper Source in Pasadena and they tell me that MY glue stick has been discontinued. They do not know if that means by just them or by the company. GRRRRRRRR.
I have some new books to tell you about...within the next few days! This is a teaser ;)
On a very sad note, I wanted to tip my hat to Mr. Sal Guarriello who passed away unexpectedly last week. Mr. Guarriello helped us a couple of years ago when we had major landlord problems. He went out of his way to help us and I will never forget what he did for us. Thank you, Mr. Guarriello for being such a good citizen, good man and a good politician.
