Is it karma?

So at the De Young Museum gala last weekend, I received a goody bag stuffed full of nothing, really....a couple of gift certificates I won't use (one's for a maid service and one's for carpet cleaning), a mini-bottle of vodka, a business card case, and a Macy's gift card.

Well, what I forgot to tell y'all is that after the gala, Anastasia and I bumped into a couple who were having a problem getting a cab. I offered them a ride home. Well, in exchange, they gave me one of their goody bags...Before I tossed the whole thing away (well, not the vodka) I just called Macy's to find out how much the cards are worth.

The first one: $5. There's a pair of socks. Is it worth a trip there?

The second one: $250!!!!! Yes, that's right: TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS!!!!!

There's no way of telling which card is which, and I don't even know their names, let alone where exactly they live (beyond the busy intersection where I dropped them off).

Just my lucky day?

Wow. What a score. How will you spend it?

Not sure yet. I think the gift card is good for a couple of years, so there's no rush (I don't want to spend it on something just to spend it). But I can't wait to find something special where I don't have to worry about the cost.

The perfect treat given that I'm having to do work tonight :)

Yay! $255 to spend at Macys! Can't wait to hear what you buy.

Woo hoo! What karma!

That's it, save it for an emergency(ie fab-o date and nothing to wear) or treat yourself when you really need it!

Yes, that's what I'm going to do -- save it for an "emergency"...what a great little treasure to have waiting in my drawer!

You wouldn't use the maid service??? There's nothing more luxurious than having someone else clean your house and do your laundry!

I may use that -- I'll have to check out prices. I would love to have someone do my laundry, but I don't have laundry here at my apartment (it's so tiny, it takes about an hour to clean the whole thing!)
