people say change is good. not really. not when you have a huge pile of it just sitting around and all of the coinstars in your neighborhood are either dead or broken. because then? then you have to roll your own. this:
has to become this:
before you can get your $28 in cold, hard 'merican greenbacks. and then the teller at your bank will hit on you but he will not give you a lollipop. jerk.
groc told me that in merry, olde england, coin rolling is not done. uh-uh. when they don't use coinstar (because there are coinstars in the uk (they don't let you convert cash into amazon cards and such, however.)) they just put their cash into plastic bags and let the bank handle the rest. see? bags!
how freakin' civilized! (photo courtesy of groc)
pants and jrhyley informed me that their respective banks have coinstarish machines in house that don't charge the fee. i mean, wtf?
seattle, why do you suck so much when it comes to coin exchange? (i should probably be directly addressing my bank instead but, eh, it's more fun to call out seattle.)
the squid still isn't finished. (wow, that sounds like a code, doesn't it?) i promise, pinky swear and all that junk, that i'll have it done before next monday at the very latest.
