Yesterday I had a dream about a friend of mine from high school. I haven't thought about him in a long time. In the dream,  he had died.

Today I had another dream about him. This time we were on vacation together with a bunch of people. He was freaking out about getting the exact pictures taken he wanted. And explaining, in vivid detail, how to use the camera to a guy who offered to take one of us. "You push the button down. Like this." Lol. At one point,  he and his boyfriend (who was also along), baked six kinds of pies. The cherry one had this crumble Graham cracker crust. I woke up wanting that pie.

Why in the world am I suddenly dreaming about my friend?

A to Z theme

My theme is pictures of animals, more precisely- the ones I viewed at Cabela's in West Virginia over the summer.

Why my Starbucks was free today

I went to Starbucks today and my order was free.

No,  it isn't my birthday.

I used my giftcard. How'd I get that? 

Shopkicks. It's an app on my phone. I get "kicks" when I walk into stores. I get more kicks if I scan an item on the list. (Manufacturers actually pay for you to just touch their products.)

I trade the kicks in for giftcards.

I've earned five so far,  and I rarely leave my house. If you work at Target or a mall or something,  you could seriously clean up just flicking your phone app open once a day.

Anyway,  I thought I'd share,  in case anyone out there thinks an extra $10 a month or something is worth it.

So Target found a way to make big toilet paper packages easy to pay for,  and indicating they were sold.
