Credit Card Guilt

A letter arrived from my Amazon.com credit card (well, from the company that furnishes me with it), saying, in essence, "We noticed that you made a large payment recently. We hope you aren't planning to switch to another card! Here, have some cash-advance checks!" Okay, so they're always sending me cash advance checks, which I don't want, and I did complain to Amazon that after the Chase/BankOne merger, I was getting all sorts of spam phone calls from them, so I could see why they might be nervous. But I pay my bill every month, and it's not even like last month was higher than usual (the one where we bought harrock's laptop, that was higher than usual, but that was months ago!). So it seems strange that they want to guilt me this time about paying it.

Whee! Mind control lasers active!

jdbakermn called a bit ago, to ask "I'm at the bookstore, and I don't have your printout of four/five star books to buy. What was the one with the caravan guy and the inn?" Of course, I didn't actually remember it and had to go and look at my list, but I could at least find the answer. And, I don't feel too silly to not remember the book, since I seem to have reviewed it a year and a half ago, and I know I don't remember books that well for that long.

Providing a service and bending the universe (or at least jdbakermn) to my will and successfully storing some of my memory on line. My day is made!

(Wow, Amazon makes it really hard to find one's lists. I've put a link off of my main lj page now.)
