Support / Technical error trying to verify phone to cash out
« on: October 20, 2018, 07:10:02 am »Message ID: 1243337
I keep getting a message that a "technical error occurred" when I try to verify my phone number. Help?

Yesterday my brake line broke. I managed to slow down and pull into an empty parking lot behind a pharmacy to come to a stop. Nearly got hit, though, so I was pretty shaken up for a while. I'm not looking forward to waiting to have it fixed. Oh, and the front tires are so dry-rotted (per the tow-truck driver) they need to be replaced.

Not a good day, yesterday.

My sister took me there for a belated birthday lunch/dinner. I haven't eaten there in nearly twenty years. I was surprised that their marinara sauce, at least, tasted good. If I ever go back, I may have to try a dish with their meat sauce (I got chicken alfredo).

Anyone else have an experience with being "meh"or "bleh" about a restaurant, only to change your mind years later?

I don't get a lot of surveys, and I often don't hit the accuracy needed for the Daily Tasks. I have to take a break at times, then come back.

How do the rest of you handle discouragement?

Is anyone else watching this? It's a limited series on HBO. A murder mystery and psychological thriller. I got into enough to order the novel it's based on, and the author's other book Dark Places. I got Gone Girl out of the library.

I have 62 more to go to finish it completely. So I'll be posting here, to clear my head a bit.

What's everyone else working on?

Off-Topic / My Universal Yums Were From Taiwan

There was only one I ended up tossing, the choco peanut butter *bleep*: mochi (pounded rice) wrapped around peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. The chocolate was poor quality and I hated the texture. Nasty!

The Bubble Tea popcorn was my favorite. There were also a few chewy sesame candies that reminded me of Coffee Nips, some bizarre smoked plum hard candies, a kinda-sorta- giant cheese puff flavored with seaweed (which tasted vaguely like Funyons), spiced crackers that were really good, and a "Spicy Scallion Stick" that was like a gigantic version of the Chinese crackers the bulk stores used to sell. Not a bad box, but glad I didn't spring for the larger size.

...Which I did for next month. It's England.  8)

Off-Topic / Favorite card games

For some reason, I started thinking about the pinochle games my mother, the neighbors and my older siblings would have each week during summer. They stopped before I was old enough to join in.

I miss playing spades and euchre with my old running buddies. What's your card game?

Offers / Peanut Surveys

They popped up last week (or at least, I noticed them last week) and I seem to have better luck with them than other types. I rather like them. Anyone else feel the same?

Off-Topic / I finished a survey!

The first one that's happened! Usually I don't meet the criteria. I'm very happy -- was getting discouraged there.

Off-Topic / Stores/restaurants you miss

...Because they're not around anymore

I miss Arbor Drugs. CVS bought them out in the late 90s, I believe.


Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips. Best fast-food fish ever.

Off-Topic / Do you have any monthly box subscriptions?
« on: June 21, 2018, 07:00:18 am »Message ID: 1223041
I had a Birchbox subscription for a couple years. I let it go to pay down a credit card. Then a year or so ago one of the people I play WoW with mentioned Universal Yums: snacks from around the world. I finally broke down and signed up for it at the end of May.

Got my first box on the 19. It's from Brazil. There's been three things I like so far (I got an offer to 'move up' from the basic box of 6 goodies to 12 for $5 less this month), and two I went "Nope."

Off-Topic / Do you play video games?
« on: June 17, 2018, 06:26:46 am »Message ID: 1222361
World of Warcraft is my main game. I have some PC games: Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition, Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age II, Skyrim. But I don't play them nearly as much as WoW.

I also have a PS 2 that I can't hook up to my old, third-hand TV.  :'(
