Fish Bowl Effect

November 26, 2008

I’m stealing the fish bowl line from Kristin at Better Now. I am putting my Mr. Man stories on hold for a little while… I know you all love them and I love writing them but now we’re caught up to the present (we were three weeks behind there for a while and that had […]

Save (at least) $150 a month now.

November 20, 2008

Or will it be next month? Feels like it’s only a matter of time. My little sister called me from the bar she works at in Virginia. Dave Matthews pops up every once in a while, it’s a hot spot. “No one is here. It’s weird.” She says, her voice echoing amidst the empty tables […]
