Some other things...
- I applied to work at the World Series of Poker. I haven't worked at the event for two years so I am really looking forward to working!
- I also saw that CrimeCon will take place in Las Vegas this spring so I volunteered to work this three-day event. I just got a reply saying they want me to help out which is great--I volunteer for half a day then I get to attend the rest of the day's events for free (I've done this several times--just volunteer for a big event that people pay hundreds of dollars to attend and then I get to attend for free!).
- Amazon Prime is raising their price once again. I dropped Prime a few years ago because I don't order from them very often, I don't mind waiting a few extra days for my purchases, and we didn't use the other services like free books and movies so now I just make sure when I do order from them, the order is more than $25 so I get free shipping anyway. If you do like Prime though, here are some ways to avoid the price increase.
