I went to REI earlier for one of my last BM purchases.I was reluctant to spend the money, but I went in search of a camelbak resevoir that would fit inside my iridescent backpack. I decided after the last time that a camelbak is really the right answer for water. The 50-oz one looked reasonable, and I decided it was worth the extra $5 for the greater capacity over their 35-oz version.

Anyway, after waffling over the expense, I went up to the counter while digging in my wallet for my REI member card. The card I pulled out was, instead, an REI gift card. I looked baffled. But it was, in fact, an unused $50 gift card. A few minutes into this, I remembered that my brother gave it to me for graduation. I win.

I wonder how I'd forgotten about it? Usually I have a disturbingly complete mental index of giftcard assets.

What a great story! I hope you're having a fabulous time at the Burn, too. I'm feeling very good about my decision to give it a miss this year (only the second time I've done so in 10 years) but I'll be excited about it next year!

So it's time for another one of my embarrassing 'who are you?' comments—I'm dreadful with names, prosopagnosia and all that... I even forget the really important people. I'm sorry to ask but would you mind jogging my memory?

I had a great time.

I'm Liana, I have long curly red hair, and I believe I most recently re-met you at craft night at Kimberly's some time in the last year or so. I used to run into you occasionally at parties but my social groups have shifted some and I don't end up at many parties anymore.

I never replied to this—sorry! Thanks for the info. I hope to run into you again soon.
