$10 bet…day 2

I made a bet with my boyfriend on Sunday 11/26/06 that I could lose 10lbs by Sunday 12/26/06. Why? Hmmmmmmmmm, maybe I went a little bit crazy for a few seconds. He did not think I could do it so we got the amount whittled to 5lbs lost in the two week period. That really got my blood boiling and I am convinced I can do it. In fact I will do more than 5 lbs and we will see what he has to say to that! Answers to some of the burning...

Blog’s worth

I just found this cute little button that supposedly calculates what your blog is worth. The mechanics behind it are beyond me but it said my blog is now worth $564.54. Okay then. So what now? Can I cash that in and run off to Hawaii and buy a condo on the beach? Or maybe I can get myself a blue Lexus Rx 400 like I always wanted. Nah, I am just playing. I put in a few other blog URLs for fun just to see the values they would come up...

The website was just showing the wrong information. 11/26/06 Today I noticed that I had committed a debt-reduction sin. I completely forgot to check my software for the due date of one of my credit card...

Where did Citgo go?

I recently wrote about getting 3 cents off gas when you use your gas card. Well those gas cards were run by Circle K-Citgo gas stations. All of the Circle K-Citgo stores have been replaced with Valero gas stations. Valero does not offer the gas card with the 3 cent per gallon discount. I guess those gas savings are all gone now? Where oh where did Citgo go? Now I have to pay regular price for gas just like everyone else who did not...

The meaning of the word Poor

Being Poor by John Being poor is knowing exactly how much everything costs. Being poor is having to keep buying $800 cars because they’re what you can afford, and then having the cars break down on you, because there’s not an $800 car in America that’s worth a damn. Being poor is thinking $8 an hour is a really good deal. Being poor is picking the 10 cent ramen instead of the 12 cent ramen because that’s two...
