Money Matters
Last Friday, a friend who saw me with a can of PBR in hand did a double-take and said it just looked wrong. Drew was walking by at the time and quipped, "This is what it looks like to live within your means."
~*~

I was coming home on the T on Monday and overheard a woman speaking about figuring out a way to close off the living room in her apartment so she could get another roommate and "save some money so she could buy a house." It seemed a desperate thing to do, but I started thinking it was downright dumb when she said, "I wish I could do it with my kitchen, too. I never use the kitchen. I eat every meal out, so I never cook."
~*~

Incidentally, I haven't forgotten the dislike of the credit/debt cycle. It's just that for me, there are some things I find are worth overriding hard principles since they seem to be answering a part of my Self. It's a short list, though, generally attributed to loose categories like "education" and "artistic endeavor." The recommendation wasn't made lightly.

'sall for now.

didn't see she see the irony of what she was saying!? unless of course she has a boyfriend who pays for every meal for her.

I'm usually amazed at my fellow Americans' inability to recognize irony. Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life" being used to push cruises, for instance...

The worst is Fortunate Son being used to hawk jeans for American Eagle. I mean.... gah! The "some people" spoken of in the song should not be co-opting it!

I ain't no fortunate son

Why does everyone except me have an animated lion or tiger? I'm so freakin' low-tech it hurts.

Re: I ain't no fortunate son

And what sort of animation would Mr. Knife-and-fork like to have? I've got ImageReady at home, I can (I think) collate stuff into an animated .gif for you if you need a hand.

It'd be awesome if he did his dance. Or... if I could get him hanging on the giraffe leg and doing a very slow slide down.

I have a taste for deliciousness too. I end up opting out of things like cable to support my habits.

Isn't 'Til There Are No More Cowboys a country song, too?

Do you ever beat people with Stick while giggling like a fourteen year old anime girl?

...subtle...

you seem to be implying theres something wrong with giggling like a fourteen year old anime girl.

oh theres nothing wrong with it per se, perhaps the long or short of it is, to always remember that dogs can hear high pitched sounds.
