I installed AOL Instant Messenger the other day, mostly so I could bother Lilly from within the safety of my own room, and everywhere on my computer I’m finding little shortcuts to “Free AOL and Unlimited Internet.” On my desktop, in my Start Menu, on the Links bar of IE, and in my Quicklaunch bar. I seem to keep discovering more and more every day. It’s like a treasure hunt with really crappy treasure.
On an unrelated note, I got the Louisiana quarter yesterday as change at “The” Taiwanese restaurant in Cupertino Village. On the one hand, I was pleased with myself for coming into possession of a shiny new 3/4″ metal graphic describing the Louisiana Purchase, but on the other hand, this only reminded me that I have not yet gotten my hands on an Ohio quarter. What ever am I going to do with the glaring hole in my Kid’s Statehood Quarters Collector’s Folder? WHAT, I say??? If any of the two or three of you who read this page has in your possession a shiny Ohio state quarter, I will give you a….quarter for mailing it to me. Or perhaps 62 cents to cover the 25 cents plus 37 (yes 37) cents for postage. It’s a can’t-be-beat deal. e-mail me.
