Sharing is caring: Amphibians Edition
February 28, 2013
from @mochimac: Do you ever feel guilty for making a lot of money? Presupposing that you consider your current income “a lot”, file this under Things I Am Adamantly Against. (unnecessary guilt)
from @frugalscholar: FS is considering whether it’s nutters to co-own a home with her (responsible) son in Real Estate Plan: Is it crazy?
from @funnyaboutmoney: Rice pilaf! I love all kinds of grains, and rice most especially, though I rarely cook my brown rice. We don’t plan ahead enough to have time to make brown rice so we do the lazy Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice.
from @ruth: A crap comic book shop I’ll be sure never to give my money to whether I go to IL or they ever show up at a comic convention.
from @eemusings: Treating friends is an odd thing. With some friends, it’s easy as pie to split the bill or cover our portions with cash, with others it turns into a pissing match over whose turn it is because the big spenders covered the whole freaking bill the last time but they’re not acknowledging that this is someone else’s turn. It gets a bit frustrating. I don’t mind treating the occasional friend but I want to pay my fair share most of the time so we don’t jump into the next month’s Entertainment budget.
from @fabfrugal: spending $2,000 to heal her acne might seem excessive but I remember how much my mom struggled with non-acne skin problems, how upsetting and embarrassing it was for her, how much she tried to fix or cover it up. It annoys me enough when I break out just a little, or when some of my skin takes on weird coloration that’s not on my face. I can’t even fathom being resigned to an uncooperative epidermis where the focal point was my face.
from @marieevevallieres: Married Woman Travels Solo. Really? Women shouldn’t be “allowed” to travel alone? That says more to me about the person saying it and our idiotic culture that fosters that idiotic attitude than the woman. I’ve probably traveled just as much with as without my spouse/BF thanks to work travel and while it’s different, it’s just as enjoyable as traveling with a partner.
from @thenextweb: Andrew Mason beats BattleToad. I mean, gets fired from Groupon. An entertaining good bye letter. Social awareness, self awareness, humor without deprecation.
from @CrystalVanTassel: A How to Meal Plan book.
I didn’t watch G.I. Joe: the Rise of Cobra when it first came out. Catching it on tv now confirms that decision. My face contorts in the “What THE..” position and really, it’ll freeze that way if I watch the whole movie.
My hair keeps GROWING. It gets so knotty every night that by morning, a pack of Scouts could train for a badge trying to unravel this dratted mop. Took six inches off a few months ago and it seems to have gotten just as long again. Just about ready to lop it all off and go chin length or shorter.
Stocks: I tried to execute the most complicated trade I’ve ever tried: a limit order setting the price I want to buy at, Good Til Cancelled, in an All or Nothing sale… and got rejected. Only 100+ share purchases meet their minimum threshold for AON sales and my 40 share order was too small fry for them. Well fine. I’ll just keep watching the stupid stock then.
The most hilarious frog.
