I WON THE PIE EATING CONTEST
« on: October 29, 2018, 07:30:06 PM »
...and my prize is more pie. 

This post may belong in the "Antimustachian Wall of Shame and Comedy" forum, but today I hit the mythical 850 credit score with at least one reporting agency.   

Up until my early thirties, I lived quite the spendypants lifestyle, but still within my means.  It hasn't been until recently I've become more mustachian in my spending.  However, in the last two years I've been somewhat strategic in the use of credit cards for big purchases to maximize rewards.  I guess that's worth something. 

For at least a little while, I'm the best at borrowing money.

I was also excited about an actual contest... but I guess an 850 is a big deal too. I'm right on the threshold of moving into excellent territory... can't wait to celebrate that by refinancing a couple of things to lower interest rates.

Now it's time to start churning credit cards and monetize that credit score!  You could be making some good money every year.  I do!

I won a pie eating contest when I was 10. I won either $10 or $20.

It was blueberry.

I'm glad somebody won an actual pie eating contest before I got lynched for a clickbait title.  :D

I won a pie baking contest on Pi day last year. It was at work so I can say it was my greatest professional accomplishment. (That'll be true until the day I hang it up!)

Plum Pie ftw

I won a pie once for pi day by memorizing 231 digits of pi.

I also "won" a free burrito and a t-shirt by eating a burrito where I think the main ingredient was habanero.
