Interesting…well, that YouTube video of our wedding from endless love productions has been taken down. I contacted my videographer and he asked them to take it down. Funny, that was fast. And I did find a buyer for the HD DVD player! I actually had an initial buyer who backed—get this, because he already had a Blu-Ray player and didn’t think it was necessary to have 2. Duh! I had a 2nd guy who was interested but didn’t realize he needed an XBox in order to use it. Man, craigslist is full of idiots. Anyhow, I hope my current buyer doesn’t back out–we’ve agreed on a price and now it’s…
In searching for “matt and audrey” on YouTube, I came across a wedding highlight montage of our wedding…but not from our videographer! It’s by Jeremy Almeda and “Endless Productions” and looks slightly different from what we finally received from our videographer. WTF? I’m confused. If anything, there’s a *teensy* bit of coverage here that I’ve never seen, so that’s cool…but still….isn’t there a creative rights ownership issue here?
After having it for only a couple months, I’m now trying to sell my XBox 360 HD DVD player + some movies and hoping some idiot out there is unaware of the death of HD DVD, thinking they’re getting a fabulous deal on a player. (hence, the price I’m hoping to get for it—also, partly based on the fact that there are others selling it for the same, if not higher, price) We’ll see what happens. I knew the format war was over, but I was hoping to squeeze more life out of my player with my Netflix account…..until I got this e-mail today: We’re Going Blu-rayDear Audrey, You’re receiving…

I just cancelled 3 credit cards. Like that. That feels good. What’s even more awesome — in the process, I reduced the APR on a current travel credit card and got more flight credits added. See, I have 2 Chase credit cards. It’s totally unnecessary to have both, so I called to cancel one. In the process of doing so, to keep me as a customer for the other one, they reduced the APR and gave me 2 add’l flight credits. Yay. As for the other credit cards, quite frankly, I barely use them. For one, my last purchase on it was January 2004! I’m happy as one of my…
Sure enough, at precisely 8:02am, the phone rang with the Amazon Fresh delivery (I scheduled it for between 8am – 9am). Moments later, Dirk, the delivery guy, showed up with a big smile on his face and all my groceries. He quickly offered to bring everything into the kitchen and had me sign a sheet before taking off. Everything was in my order including the very late night order of skin cream, just to see if I could really add something to my order at midnight the night before. As a pleasant surprise, I even got a bonus free bag of produce, which included a bell pepper, carrots, snap peas,…
Saturday evening, we had dinner over at the Plambecks in Issaquah along with Matt and Asayo. It was like…a real adult-like dinner in the sense that Suzanne went all out with great appetizers (like apricots topped with goat cheese and roasted pistachios) and serving delicious grilled shrimp and rack of lamb with arugula pesto. It was great to catch up and also see their kids, Matthew and Thomas, who are quite energetic lil’ boys! We walked in around 7pm with the 2 boys running around like crazy and yelling…Chris turned to us and said “this is what it’s like every day I come home from work. It’s insane!” Ha Ha.…
