Despite promising myself I wouldn't do it, tonight I settled in front of the tv and prepared to toggle back and forth between America's Next Top Model and American Idol. My sister got me vaguely interested in the (women on) American Idol, much to my chagrin. But, some mighty force stepped in a caused our television to break about 10 minutes into each show. It was a fate.

There's an interview with Tyra in Feb. Vanity Fair wherein she claims that "Daytime Tyra" (AKA: Tyra of the Tyra Banks Show) is the "real" Tyra, while "Nighttime Tyra" (of ANTM) is "a character." So, pay attention. This is the Real Tyra:

And this is a character named Tyra, played by Tyra:

After the dollar coins came out, I got a few at the bank because I wanted to look at them. Tonight, M. says to me, "Do you still have those dollar coins?"
and I say, "One." and he says, "Get it." Turns out, some of the coins have flaws and they're worth ... more than a dollar. I almost spent my last one on coffee today, then I thought, "Nah, I might want to look at it some more." And I actually paid for my coffee with a bunch of quarters, which I have not done for lo these many years because I habitually horde quarters for laundry. But now that we're homeowners, and, more importantly, washing and drying machine owners, I can break my old habit. Anyway, my dollar coin was perfect, and therefore worth only (approx.) US$1.
