After several snafus with overdrawing my checking account, I'm now really good about tracking what I use my debit card for.
Yeah...you're a big girl now Cori...it's OK...you do what you want

I do realize there are dangers with debit cards, regarding how much your bank will cover your ass if someone accesses your account, but it's just funny the look of horror that comes over his face when I whip out the debit card.

You'd think I'd just shot his dog and stolen his bible.

alright, what is extra's and why does it have a special?



when my uncle was over a couple of years ago we went out shopping and after about 6 different stores he asked if I needed money. he thought I was putting everything on credit
I do use my credit card for collecting travel points, but it really depends on what card is first in my wallet. with online banking then I just come home and transfer from chequing to credit card instantly to cover. I've racked up a few free flights just from doing this, so it's handy.

And now most of my family have their own CDN chequing accounts for when they visit and love using their debit cards

I'm anal about keeping track of my account balance when I've been heavily using my debit card. The thought of it coming up as 'insufficient funds' in a store is akin to nightmares where you realize you're naked in public.

yes. I hate when the electronic thing is slow. even when you know money is in there it's still horrible. flashbacks to my student/early mortgage days.

Extras is a very, very funny UK show created, written by and starring Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, the same ones who created (and starred in, in Gervais' case) The Office UK. In the show, Gervais and a friend of his are struggling actors who work on movies as extras, and Merchant plays his bumbling agent. This allows for guest spots by many huge actors/actresses, who mostly mock themselves and their celebrity. REALLY funny.

Specials - many UK shows have specials that air on christmas day (you probably know this already). Both Extras and UK Office have had specials in this manner, which sort of serves as a series wrap-up, because they air after the series proper has ended. The Extras one just aired this Christmas.

thanks vp - i've seen it mentioned a few times but didn't know what it was. I've never seen the UK office either. I think a clip once. I wonder if I can get these shows on that usenext thing I have?

What is usenext? A downloading thingy, I'm guessing. I'm quick like that.

I know that Extras is available on torrent, that's how we got it.

Actually, Sarah just told me she still has them on her computer. If you don't want to bother with torrenting and can't get them on usenext, we can burn them for you and send them.
