It's text heavy today peeps--buckle up, and take your knitalin so you can concentrate if you want to proceed.
I'm online today, when I should have been checking my boss's flight status to Orlando from Newark--the weather here has been rainy, which means planes can't fly.
Anyway, I click on a headline on MSN that reads: "15 Ways To Trim Your Budget."
I'm a sucker for these articles. 99% of them is stuff we already do--CFC lightbulbs, line dry the laundry (ok, just one load--the heavy stuff that never gets dried in the damn dryer anyway), clip coupons, blah, blah blah but sometimes they have one small idea I had never thought of before.
In the article they had a link to an MSN message board where thrift minded people pool their ideas.
I notice the moderator's name is DonnaF.
I click on her name to learn more about her. Lo and behold, her full name is Donna Freedman.
Mom, and T. will know this name, as this is the mother of a mutal friend of Dr. Mad Scientist's and mine.
We met at the movie theater we all worked at as kids. She officiated at our wedding (because we're not religous, we didn't want to pay anyone to do it, and in Alaska you can court-appoint anyone to marry you).
Maybe I'm easily amused but I find that the internet makes it a small world.
And color me jealous, the woman's like a Cheapass Guro for MSN. Man, I want that job! Ha ha!
She's got a blog
here if you're interested.
Speaking of money. I am giving an anonymous shout out to the Valentine Bandit who sent me a Valentine's Day card in the mail. This person hails from the state that Homer Simpson dubbed "America's Wang." Unfortunately that's all that was revealed to me.
But because of this VD Bandito, K.A.Y.E.
lives to see another three months.
Yeah I know I said I was discontinuing it--but consider my emotional state at the time--give a sister a manic episode!
So, if you've had your cooter rooted in January or February (I almost wrote "and" there--good god!), and have NOT previously emailed me your name and email, please do. You'll be eligible for this month's prize (courtesy of the VD Bandito--once I purchase the yarn, I'll post it) and for the end-of-the-year Grand Prize.
I'll be going onto The Place That Shall Not Be Named and posting about the contest there. I'm hoping that will drum up more than less than 10 entrants each month.A private aside to the woman who emailed me on February 4 or 5th with her entry: Gmail ate your message before I could add you to my spreadsheet--won't you please email me again at rkbezzie @ gmail . com? I apologize, but see the above mentioned reference to my disturbed mental state those days.
Chunky's adopted Auntie and her feline minions (hm, or maybe it's the opposite there...) sent him a HUGE box of Valentine goodies today too.
Y'all have been so nice to us. I really do appreciate it. It's probably a good thing because honestly without your supportive words I'd probably be wanted for murder right about now and they would have found a certain Dr. Mad Scientist floating in the Passaic River--or wait, where did Tony Soprano dispose of his bodies? I'd like to think I'd do it traditional Jersey-style.
So have you made it this far?
Congrats--you get a picture. Jeeze, another WIP on Wednesday:
This is another RAKish thing I've been working on--I had planned it to be that way pre-husband unemployment and I refuse to put it on the backburner.
You last saw it when I was ranting about a certain blog post.
And yes, that's Noro. It's some Noro Mag popped my Noro cherry with. She said the colors drove her nuts. I can kind of see it. I just started ball number three of this particular color number and it's not really patterning the way I had hoped.
But no fear. It's not supposed to be perfect.
What is "it?" Yeah well for that you'll have to wait!
