The book is in the mail

July 10th, 2007 at 12:19 pm

I mailed my library book back at at place called Box & Mail. It cost $5.86 to send it via media mail. I could have done better if I had packaged it myself, but I am still in such disarray, I couldn't find any padded envelopes.

I got my hair cut at a place that advertised $9 cuts. I am not real thrilled with the cut, so I will look elsewhere next time. Also, I had to wait a long time, even though it didn't look like anyone was busy.

I just got my first upgraded Netflix charge, and I have three movies to watch (though no TV hookup yet)! None of the three are of particular interest to my cousin, so I will be sure to get her to add some items to my queue.

My mission today: to find a State Farm agent and switch over my insurance, and to get my cell phone switched to a NC number.

    I have found it helpful to take a picture of how I want my hair cut to look. If the person can't do it, they'll normally give you to someone else. It could even be a photo of yourself.

    Sometimes, you could ask the library what a lost book would cost?

    Also, I have a County Adult Vocational school near me and for the most part; they do great work. The key is getting to know the teacher and again taking a picture. I've gone many times and I have probably only been dissappointed once. I also get facials (manual) for $3.00. They really do a great job because they need to complete so many for their license. You can also get manicures and pedicures. Something that I like is that they have a special program just for manicures, pedicures, and facials. That's all they do. Look into it.

    My haircut looked better after I washed my hair this morning.

    I used to be a librarian, and back then we used to charge the replacement cost of the book, plus a processing fee. So it was definitely worthwhile to send it back.

    Good tip on the vocational/beauty school. I never thought about getting facials or manicures/pedicures there.

    At Netflix you can set up a sub queue or secondary queue. Back in the day when we would get 8 movies at a time, we had a secondary queue set up for the kids. We would have six from the main queue and 2 from the kids queue. They would only send movies from the kids' list when one of those two movies was returned.

    Perhaps you can set up a sub queue for you cousin? You can set whatever numbers you want from the main and the sub queue.

    Seems like a lot of people here use Netflix, let us know what you think
