Hackers Gonna Hack

I’ve been hacked again!


Ugh……mostly it’s just an irritating inconvenience, but still.  I think that once you get hacked it’s always just a matter of time until it happens again.  This time, I was sitting around a hotel pool with The Engineer and his sister’s family when I got a text alert that a $900 AT&T bill was charged to my card.  Perfect……first off, how does one even achieve a phone bill that high?!  Secondly, I’ve never had an AT&T phone in my life!

Cancelling one’s card isn’t hard really.  I just logged on to my account, answered some questions, the charge was removed, and my card was cancelled.  Last time this happened, I feel like my new card arrived quickly.  This time however, it’s been a week and still no new credit card!  Maybe this has to due with the fact that the incident happened on a weekend?  I’m not sure, it’s just another one of those annoying things.  It’s not a huge issue as I have an “emergency card” that I keep and never use.  Mostly I keep it for exactly this sort of situation.  You never remember how many things are automatically charged to your credit card until you start getting annoyed emails from places saying their payments had been denied.  Most of the accounts I’ve tried not to transfer to the emergency card.  Really I was hoping my new card would arrive so that I only had to transfer accounts once, that didn’t really work out for me though.

Every time this happens I just think that being a card hacker would be ideal.  You know what I would love…..not paying bills!

How does one even become a hacker?!

How do they always figure passwords and stuff out?!

 Is there a class or something I can take?!

In other news, this week I had my last dose of Vital Proteins Beauty Greens.  They weren’t bad, but I’m not sure they did much for me honestly.  Plus there was the added harassment from The Engineer and my coworkers every time they saw me drinking  the cloudy, green liquid.

It wasn’t good, but it also wasn’t bad….it just sorta was.  Other then a sort of internal sense of satisfaction that I was doing something almost snobbily healthy for myself, the greens didn’t provide any life altering changes that I can tell.  Because of that, on the issue of potentially reordering more beauty greens……


Things that Go Crunch: Part 1


I mean, not that anyone ever wants this to happen…..but I was amped to have finished a good workout and start out what is planned to be a good party weekend.  I won a VIP table to a concert for 10 people and a $100 party tab, so fun party plans have been in the works for a couple days.  A crunched front end on my Terrainy girl wasn’t exactly part of my previously scheduled fun! :/

Ugh…I’m just so annoyed.  And I’m still cold hours later…..a lingering byproduct of having to stand out in the chilly SoDak spring wind for two hours while we waited for everything to get sorted out and settled.  Thank goodness it wasn’t winter…..I would have frozen in a post -Yoga Sculpt sweatcicle!


Doesn’t take much of a collision to crumple plastic into submission…….

Other than being cold, and a turn signal that is currently on the fritz, all is fine.  I’m fine, and the Terrainy girl will live to see another day.

Things to be grateful for are good things I suppose.




The People Who Think They Know Me, What Exactly Do You Think You Know?

I’m not saying that I like everyone or that everyone has to like me…..haters gonna hate after all.  I just think that if you’re going to hate on me you should at least know what you’re hating.

Do me a solid, and the next time you meet someone, invest time into getting to know them.  Not just the normal things, but the things that really make that person who they are.  It’s the quirky things we all do who make us who we are.  Everyone has a story, maybe we should all work harder at getting to know everyone’s stories…….
