Something borrowed, something free!

5 Aug

There’s been a lot happening over here at the same time that nothing’s been happening.  You know what I mean?  In a lot of ways, it’s the same thing day in and day out, but there’s just always something going on.

I’ve returned cans, I think, twice, since I saw you last.  The first time was a small haul–I just wanted them out of the garage, and I got 15 bucks.  The last time, last week, was bigger and I got 36.  I put the 15 in my wallet and squandered it on something frivolous, I’m sure and the $36 went into Addie’s savings.  We also had a yard sale a few weeks ago and made $156.  We went away for a weekend to a Lake and that was pretty much our gas and food money.  Man, Addie sure can put away some pancakes!


I’ve also been doing more massage jobs when they become available and you know how much I like me the random gig!  I did a sales pitch for a re-enactment tv show yesterday and took home a cool hundred…I think that will mostly go to debt.  Remember that time I played one of Tinkerbell’s friends at the premier of some new Tinkerbell movie? I applied glitter to three year olds and got paid $175.  I think that’s been my favorite random job.

Anyhoo, due to the extra work and all, I currently have $250.17 in one account and $56 in another.  So it’s a little like I never blew that 220 on tires! Woot!

The game is (sort of) back on!!!  I’m still horrible…I mean, rotten-awful….at not spending money on lunch or coffee.  It’s kind of ridiculous.

Oh! I also auditioned for the Pyramid game show coming back to GSN…and made it into the contestant pool! So you know, one of these days, I’ll win $25,000!!! Can’t wait for that little number! If you don’t know me that well, be informed: I’m a game-show whore and believe it’s my destiny to win a shit-ton of money.

 

(Is this show still on? I auditioned for this one…didn’t get on.)

Lastly, my friend Alex and I traded cookbooks and I think this is a great way to shake up the cooking and get some new recipes (free!) So borrow some cookbooks, y’all!  And more free….if you or someone you know is going to have a baby, have them go to http://www.uddercovers.com and enter Breastfeeding2012 in the code space at checkout and they can get a free breastfeeding cape.  Or pads…or, I think, carseat cover. I have no idea why these people give so much crap away, but they really do.  You just pay shipping.  I’ve gotten a sling AND a cape from them and they haven’t spammed me with other stuff or stolen money from my credit card.  Suspicious I am…but what the hell.  Free stuff!!!!

It’s like this one:
