1. Madison

When I collected this morning's mail there were two letters from Madison magazine. The first was a receipt for the $79.95 I paid them earlier in the month for a year's renewal and two free books. The second was a a notice telling me that my subscription had expired (but to ignore the letter if I'd already renewed.) But the interesting thing was that it was offering a year's subscription for $59.95.

Which had me reaching for the phone before I'd finished reading to the bottom. I called magshop. Explained my situation to the lovely women who answered, who cancelled my original subscription renewal (after warning me that I wouldn't get my "free" books. But agreeing that they'd probably slipped through the system already if I was lucky) and locking in the $59.95 rate for two years.

Take time to stop and smell the Roses. Finished.(Or so I thought until I realised on the drive home that if the cat girl had a shadow then the stop sign should have one too...)
