I'm Feeling Blue (Mountain)

A few weeks ago I needed to send a friend an e-card, so I went to Blue Mountain. I don't remember the exact circumstances, but I think in order to send your "free" card, you need to sign up for a free 30-day trial and give them your credit card number. At the end of 30 days, if you don't cancel the trial, you get charged a full year membership to Blue Mountain.

Smart people go back and cancel their membership so as not to incur the year membership. If you're me, you forget that you signed up in the first place and then get a charge on your credit card bill that reads something like: "Blue Mountain Yearly Subscription - $30."

So yes, I am the proud owner of a yearly subscription to Blue Mountain, which gives me UNLIMITED e-cards for one full year. So I think it would be great to take on the "Man" at Blue Mountain (although when I envision the "Man" at Blue Mountain, I really see a bunch of those middle-aged suburban mothers that hang around the Hallmark Store at the mall) and use/abuse my Blue Mountain unlimited e-card sending privileges for all it's worth.

Got a special occasion that you'd like me to send you an e-card for? Just let me know and one is on the way. Your grandma having hip replacement surgery? Let me send her an e-card. Trying to suck up to your boss? An e-card is on the way. Have a friend of a friend of a friend who is bored? Send 'em my way, and an e-card is theirs.

Movers arrive at our house tomorrow to begin the tedious process of packing a house full of crap. The first step towards moving back from the Best Coast to the Least Coast.
