And by the way, I hate Wal-Mart too

Saturday morning I got up super-early and bravely fought the traffic on Van Nuys Blvd. so I could buy my favorite aunt a gift card. See, she likes Wal-Mart, and I like her, so even though I personally am a Target fan, I swallowed my dislike and went in.

Well, guess what? I found the PERFECT gift card for her - it had a picture of a monkey on it and said "Go bananas!" And my nickname for my aunt is "Anna Banana". So - well, you get it, right?

Anyway, I got to the register and guess what - they couldn't sell it to me! Why not, you ask? Well, apparently because their scanning equipment didn't recognize the card, and neither the clerk at my register nor the manager could figger out how their own equipment worked.

Being impatient at the best of times, I mentally gave up after only fifteen minutes of this, muttered something about how I was going to go to Target instead because when they sell gift cards they actually SELL them, and stormed out, vowing never to enter the citadel again.

And when I got home, guess what I found in my mailbox? A Christmas card from my cousin Kathy, containing - are you ready? - a $25 gift card from Wal-Mart!!!

Chrissy,

Don't worry, I won't buy your Christmas present from Home Depot or Wal-Mart. :-)

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.

Hmm,

Another topic might be why the world hates spammers like the previous stock spams. Maybe I'll make that my blog. Oh, wait, I'll be stuck writing forever!

I was in Circus City the other day (because it was convenient to where I was)and couldn't get a salesperson to answer my questions, so,,,after five minutes (i'm not as patient) I went elsewhere. Customer service is a lost art these days.

Good to see that you have enabled comment moderation!
