I was at the dollar store the other day, checking out, when the cashier asked me if I wanted any two-dollar bills. I'm all like 'sure, why not'. She then proceeded to tell me the story of the man who had come in earlier and paid in all two-dollar bills. And when she tried to give him his change, he wouldn't accept it. Didn't want any of that 'dirty money'. According to him, two-dollar bills are the cleanest money. We should, in fact, be doing it like the Germans who have some kind of thingy in their cash registers that cleans all the money while its in there. Ummm... okay. Anyway, I now have a two-dollar bill. I tucked it away. Who knows... someday it might be worth something. :shrug:
I also have a plethora of coins. I'm pretty sure they're not worth anything. (I've looked some of them up, and no, not worth any more than face value.) But they're interesting to me. Whenever I happen across foreign coins, I keep them. I used to have an arrangement with a store in CO. If they got foreign coins by mistake, I'd buy them for whatever American coin they got gipped out of. You know, if it looked like a quarter, I'd give them a quarter. Pennies, nickels, etc. I have stuff from China, Australia, Mexico (natch), the Dominican Republic. When I was in Michigan, Canadian coins were everywhere and they spent the same. Down here, no one wants a Canadian, so it's worthless. To everyone but me, of course. I got a lot of Asian coinage when I was in Utah. Go figger.
The other day, a friend posed a question on FB about hobbies. I mentioned fishing and gardening. She pointed out that baking was probably one of my hobbies, too. I joked back about baking being a compulsion, not a hobby. And we laughed. I also collect old books. And I guess the coinage thing could be a hobby, but I don't devote that much time to it. Same with collecting rocks.
The covers for UatB and CU came in last night. Now I just have to upload everything. Also, the proofs for Blink and UEQ shipped yesterday. Woohoo.
I have so many carrot sprouts coming up it looks like the pots are growing hair. I'm going to have to thin them soon. I hate the thought of thinning. I mean, each of those carrots I thin will have to die. I wonder if I can eat them. Carrot microgreens? Could be a thing.
Okay, I'm running late, so I'm gonna just leave it at that. How are the this-n-thats in your world?
