Stray thought--

Every time I see a penny, I pick it up. When I find a hundred, perhaps I will get an extra life.

That's a good idea. I should keep my eyes out for pennies like I used to, hehe.

Be on the watch for green mushrooms as well.

I wish I did :) I occasionally write poetry on the side, but right now, Thrifthorror's my main creative project. My day job is mostly spreadsheets and data (I also maintain the community Excel Fandom for spreadsheet-related fun). Haven't been much for writing for the last year, unfortunately.

how often do you come across the ones that are glued down? or do they not bother to do that with pennies?

I see the occasional glued-down quarter, but a penny's not worth the glue :)

I just spent over a half hour reading through various entires in the thrifthorror community. Obviously, it is seriously worth the time and effort to tell you how amazing you are, since it completely changed the course of my morning.

I only got a few hours of sleep, and I woke up to birds chirping (not the cute kind...the ridiculously annoying ones that make you want to scream) and my sister screaming (not like a baby, but like a 20 year old, with a full and healthy lung capacity). I didn't have a great start to say the least, but now I am so amped that I nearly want to go downtown to the thrift stores right now, at 8 in the morning. (keyword: nearly)

So, thanks for being great. That's pretty much all I have to say. If you weren't so insanely hilarious, then it wouldn't be nearly as good, either... so cheers to that.

*giggles!*

People get on my case for picking up pennies --I normally tell them that hell, if I get a hundred I have enough money for a soda or something, so it's not worthless.

Your response is way better.

It's kind of frustrating that I don't get the little chiming sound when I pick them up, tho. Maybe I'm not doing it right...
