HOORAY! My new CREDIT CARD arrived today! And, Oh, Boy! It's a good one! No annual fees, but the interest rate is humongous. And it's just chock full of opportunities for high-interest roll-overs and $35.00 fines for a kinds of things. I just can't wait to use it. Once. It's a promotional credit card. Amazon wanted me to have it, so they're going to give me a $100.00 Amazon Gift Certificate just for getting the card and using it exactly once. No minimum use amount. I just have to use it once within ninety days. I think I can do that. Amazon's Gift Certificate is good only for Amazon purchases, but I'll find something useful, I'm sure. Maybe I'll finally buy that fletching tool I've been wanting... Credit cards are evil--generally speaking--but sometimes they do have their uses. Like when you use a cheap one to pay off an expensive one. Or a disposable one to scarf up a chunk of change. Or an expired one to 'loid a lock... And they're really good for scraping frost off a windshield on a chilly day. And the make good mixers for epoxy glue, once you cut them up into little thin strips. Which is something I really quite enjoy doing. I use a large paper cutter because it makes such a delightful clunking noise as it cleaves YET ANOTHER credit card asunder... I better check eBay. They may want me to have another credit card, too.
