Took a deep breath, applied and was approved for a new credit line, bringing me into the "good" number of credit lines as far as that affects credit scores. Comes with a nifty little 1.5% cash back, so that will be a go-to for non-gas/non-grocery until I qualify for something even better.

I briefly dated a woman whose hobby was following the internet-broadcast travels of a radio-tagged great white shark. Her pet crusade was elimination of Daylight Saving Time. When Florida decided to do DST year-round, I thought of her and shook my head a moment. Everybody should have a crusade, I think. Some people are passionate about moving over to the metric system. Me, I could get passionate about advocating for ISO-8601 date format (YYYY-MM-DD). It makes so much sense: most significant element first, descending through orders of significance. Extend it with ordered time data if you like. Tie it to UTC.
