The crazy ones and the lovers

La terre est bleue comme une orange
Jamais une erreur les mots ne mentent pas
Ils ne vous donnent plus à chanter
Au tour des baisers de s’entendre
Les fous et les amours
Elle sa bouche d’alliance
Tous les secrets tous les sourires
Et quels vêtements d’indulgence
À la croire toute nue.

Les guêpes fleurissent vert
L’aube se passe autour du cou
Un collier de fenêtres
Des ailes couvrent les feuilles
Tu as toutes les joies solaires
Tout le soleil sur la terre
Sur les chemins de ta beauté.

I remember, but not by heart (anymore).

My Cardpool.com experiment

We’re buying appliances for the new apartment from the Home Depot, and who doesn’t like to save money?  So I purchased quite a few giftcards from Cardpool thinking I could save 8%.  I would like to point out that this was against the Wife’s better judgement.

The sale we trying to catch only lasted two more days, so I needed them to stick to their ‘delivery within one business day’ promise.  After 36 hours passed without hearing anything, even after email support requests, I started  to get nervous.  They have no phone number listed on their site and the number they used in the past as a CS number is just a recording now.  I realize this doesn’t exactly make me look like a super smart guy.  Another support request went unanswered until the 48 hours was nearly up and I received an email saying that because of an ‘inventory problem’, they were refunding my money.

Luckily we can still get to the sale and so I’m just a fool, I’m not a moron.  Is it a scam?  I can’t say.  Here’s hoping that the next person has better luck, but also maybe that they know what to expect.
