Every night, as I drive home on dark and empty roads listening to the BBC on the radio, I crave a McDonald's spicy chicken sandwhich.  Every night.

Raise your hand if this sounds familiar. Please, raise your hand.

I just realized I forgot to cancel my free trial of Amazon Prime before a month was up, costing me seventy-nine big ones.


- I now can get free 2-day shipping on all my Amazon purchases for a year.  

- The amount I saved by buying books online rather than the bookstore is still more than $79.

- $79, if you think about it, is really a pretty small price to pay to learn my lesson: cancel free trials in a timely manner.  I'm positive I won't have to relearn that lesson ever again.  Right?

- The pioneers had to pay annual fees of up to three or four times what we do nowadays for their Amazon Prime memberships.

- I beat "Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time" with my friends at the Nickelcade.  We blew up the Technodrome.
