Oh, me and my first world problems.

You guys! Last night I was thinking about going through the towering stack of unopened mail that was threatening to take over the little table inside our front door and then Stella did a two point sliding landing into it from the chair and pretty much forced my hand. So, I went through the mail and made several stacks:

- trash
- trash that needs shredding (thus, it will end up in the towering stack of "to be shredded" mail that's threatening to take over our entire house)
- bills
- actual real mail, like the notice from our mortgage lender that they're taking back their HELOC, thanks very much. We weren't using it anyway, but dang.

Among the actual real mail I found a letter from my bank explaining that they'd be issuing me a new debit card and I have a big important related choice to make. People, oh my God. SO MANY CHOICES. WHAT TO DO. So, I figured, who would know better than the four people who read my blog? Plus, my sister is out of town and can't skew the results. SO, here is the visual:


(please click to see it big 'an stuff)

NOW. What will it be? Kiwi? Sushi? BACON? I mean, what? BACON! It's so freaking weird. I should point out that "evergreen" is the default so its boring and we don't really want it even though I added it to the poll anyway (it's there on the right). Please vote! Polls close tomorrow at 11am.

  2. Bacon. For sure.

    I'm so glad someone else has piles of to-be-shredded mail. Except I've actually moved mine, twice. Pathetic.

  5. These are very bad choices. While I can see the merits of bacon, I think the only acceptable one outside of plain green is kiwi. But then you'll have to say "Where's my kiwis?" And you know what that sounds like.

    Bacon all the way, man. I'm extremely jealous.

  14. Bacon! I so wish I could get a bacon debit card.

  15. BACON! BACON! BACON! (You can't hear me, but I'm shouting that out like a Springer guest). My seething jealousy that you have even a chance at a bacon card knows no bounds.

  16. The bacon made me laugh and laugh! Who would think of this? "You bring home the bacon, now here's how you spend it"? Too weird.

    I myself would go with coffee beans, but I seriously hope you chose bacon.

  17. Hmmm, I really think you should go with sushi but it seems I'm outnumbered. Bacon's funny but it would be funnier if I was the one with a bacon card. Which one did you go with?
