That’s the amount of my current electric bill. I really must be a cheap bastard because the last electric bill I received was in February. It was an estimate (around $150) and so I paid it in full. I apparently used much less than what they had assumed because I didn’t even get a bill for the month of March. And now two months later my bill is only a buck.
What a waste to have to pay $1.12…they should have just tacked it on to next month’s bill. At least I do on-line banking – otherwise I would have had to pay around 30% more than the cost of the actual bill in postage alone.
I saw this funny adverstisement for the Verizon yellow pages on the subway yesterday. The catch-phrase was “Sox and Shoes” and the ad was Boston-focused. It showed the legs of a man in a Red Sox uniform and white socks….but he was wearing 6 inch red high-heels. That’s rather bold….I like when advertisers take risks.
…and speaking of risks. I’m considering doing what many other bloggers have done by requiring people to “sign in” to place comments on here. For some reason, now that I’m on this new web-server, the spam comments I’m getting are increasing by the day. I came in this morning to find 51 emails notifying me of comments…every single one of them spam.
The risky part is that I’m not getting as many comments as I used to (whether because people were frustrated with my former S-L-O-W server, or because the blogging fad is coming to an end, or….even worse….my posts are so boring people have ceased to read). Anyway I don’t want to do anything to further discourage readers and commenters.
