How much do I suck? Let me count the ways.  
I really have nothing particularly interesting going on.

We have a new phone system in place at work which is making things a bit more challenging. I am going to make a dentist appointment tomorrow. I may also call about having my car loan refinanced. Exciting, you see.

From the "Not At All Good" file comes the fact that I made a rather nasty error in my checkbook and now have less than zero in my account. This means that not only will I have to beg my parents for gas money, I can't meet a friend tomorrow that I was hoping to meet. :(( She is having a layover in a Chicago airport and I was going to stop there after work. Now, since I cannot pay for parking, all I could do is drive up to the terminal, she could come out, we could hug and say hi, and then she could go back in. Wow, that would be... lame. *hangs LAME sign around neck*

My left foot is killing me.

When your LJ account expires, do your extra 7 icons just disappear into the ether? *weeps*

EDITED TO ADD: Paid Account, expiring 2004-01-05 *boggles* This has really made my day. :-* Tess was sweet enough to give ME a present on HER birthday and pay for 2 months, but someone anonymously paid for another 6 months. *cries* Thank you, anon person!

you can still use all 10 of them, but if you want to upload a new one, then you have to delete enough to make room to have 3.

Not any more, I'm afraid. The software works out which three icons you've used most and you are restricted to using those three. The other seven remain on the system but are tagged as "inactive". Here's the recently-changed FAQ. I particularly miss being able to use my "Ooh, nasty" icon for occasions like this.

My LJ account expired on the 27th. I'm definitely going to pay for it again in the future and have the funds available, but I'm waiting for either (a) the mumblings about the possibility of being able to pay bigger bucks for more than ten icons to come about or (b) my ipoints to come through.

The concept of a free-points scheme actually being able to buy you something as cool as paid LJ time is nifty and I've found it very easy to ring up the necessary 50 points for two free months. The downside is that once you earn points it takes up to 30 days for you to be able to spend them. Grr, argh.

ipoints is a pretty good scheme, but once I've got the points through and spent them then I'll probably kill my account and never try to earn another ipoint again.

Gah. Money. That would be nice to have...

Tess gave you a very small present in return for a number of very great ones, dear. Enjoy your "new" journal. :-)

Money sucks. There is never enough of it.
