I got rich today!

 

 

 

"We have finally arranged to deliver your box worth $20.8m
USD through (UPS) Company. We were able to accomplish this
through the help of IMF director Kristina Georgie and every necessary arrangement has
been made successfully.

 

And you have to contact him with all the needed address where to make the delivery to you,
make sure you call him or text him so that he will know you are the right person to contact him,
please make sure you follow the instruction he gave to you so that he will not make any mistakes,
and do not let him know that the box contain a lot of money or allow him to open the box because of security reasons,"

Gee you only got $20.8M? I think I got at least a couple of hundred million via 3 emails today alone. I think I'll put that with the other hundreds of millions I got the past few weeks.

 

I am running out of room in the vault, I may need a second one.

Boxes of money are so passè. I get regular donations of Bitcoin, usually about $10k at a time. Or maybe 10k Bitcoin, I forget.

Interestingly, these are mostly in Danish (presumably some Google-translation of some English-like thing -- I don't speak Danish), because the email account name kinda resembles a Danish name (ends with ...sson)

I feel like I'm missing out on something here.

This very cool AR app. I saw it online as a concept demo recently but now it's being turned into an actual app.

Pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens. Ours is a Bosch and it works way better than I would have expected. Magic.

 

I did it today during a Genesis 'power shout' free electricity period.

That we're going out for dinner to celebrate my daughter's birthday on Saturday night.

 

I never thought I'd ever be this excited to have a restaurant booking.

What a difference a few weeks and new medication regime can mean. I have this week so far (Monday to Thursday) I have managed to achieve over 44,000+ steps averaging 11,000+ per day. I have experience some evening and morning pain but generally in good shape. A silver lining of Covid-19 together with the encouragement of my fabulous wife I am turning things around. I feel I am really winning now and the dividends of the exercise regime are coming in. I am feeling very good physically and mentally.
