Street Money Update—January 2010!

January 28, 2010 at 4:30 pm (Street Money) (, , , , , , , , )

How lame! I am so far behind. I managed to shake the Facebook Infection called “BeJeweled”, but I have not been vaccinated for the “Fish World Flu”…sucks too, all that bubbling and gurgling, makes my stomach hurt. I blame my son. He said he needed a tank on the outside so he could go to his and get some coins or something…I don’t know. But suddenly I’m on level 5, I have 40-some fish and I find myself buying and selling and cleaning and feeding and treating and stealing and loving these stupid animated fake fish…I know I am wishing the unholy upon the masses of devotees, but I hope they do start charging for Facebook some time this year, then I NEVER have to go on it again! No way am I paying for the privilege of wasting all my spare hours of time.

Anyway…I do have school work to do so I better get on with this. Classes have begun and I need to keep up. BUT, I have found change all over the place and no chance to document it. Well, there have been chances but the socializing got me first.

I already have the 2010 link in place for the totals during the year and it has money listed, although I never sent an update about it…cart before the horse and all that…anyway, I’m telling you now.

At the beginning of January, let’s say, the 2nd, we collectively found 31¢. In change. And that’s not easy to do. Our weather has been for sh*t here and it’s either rain, snow, ice, melted black ice-snow, oil infused melted black ice-snow, slush, mud, or more snow. We have more snow right now, today, but even though it is 16° outside, it’s sunny and some of it is melting. Slightly.

In the parking lot of the bank, under a pile of snow-plowed, dirty, slushy ice-snow, I found just about the rattiest, dirtiest, oiliest, stinky dollar bill you could find that still looked like money. It had probably been there for a month or so. Stuck to the ground. Kind of folded on itself and faded to one side. I only saw it sticking out because it was greenish against the whitish. I parked the car and everything to dig it out. Dedication. And if you are wondering, except for being a lousy girlfriend, and not a very good house-duster or laundry do-er, I do apply the same overly-anal characteristics to everything else too. (Sorry, honey! As always…I’ll try harder!!)

Anystory…I got the dollar, tried to clean it in the sink, made it worse, so I just threw it in with the laundry, and presto! Looks like any old dollar again. And that was it for what’s already in the yearly total link. NOW, here’s what we’ve found since then:

14 days of coin finding (no luck on any more dollars). I’ll just give a general summary because I have no specifics except the amounts. We all found some. In the usual locations. The only notable coins are the 18 cents that Mason found in slush on the street. He said the plow went by and revealed the coins to him while he was walking home from school. Stevie found some slush money too, but I can’t remember which. I just recently found 13 pennies in the parking lot at school, scattered about just as the snow started to fall yesterday and half covered them up. Any more snow and I would have walked right over them. Thirteen seems like bad luck but it’s too late now.

SO here is the rundown: All in cents: 18, 2, 2, 3, 1, 6, 2, 3, 1, 15, 10, 25, 25, and 13. That is fourteen days worth of coin findings.

Total here is: $1.31 (from before) and $1.13 for all that other stuff. Hmmm. Maybe I should play the lottery. Combo numbers 131. I say that, but I am too lazy to go to a ticket seller location.

And that catches us all up on the money. Check it here for the year.

If I get sick of reading about real infections I’ll post some pics. I have some! They are off my phone and in my e-mail. Just a step away from my website picture folder! And two steps away from….you!

Life is de’ bubbles…

Later.
