    I am famous now (my 15 min so to speak): http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/04/14...ex.html?hpt=C1 (see picture #4). It's not a frugal thing but it is an important thing for me. It's interesting to try to be frugal and have to face all this as well. This path is neither cheap nor easy.

    But I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    The Birthday Boi

    Heh. Who knew, eh? Yesterday I was miserable. I lost internet access for pretty much the whole day (from 8am to about 10pm). This was thanks to Ma Nature and the Rains. Lots of rains. So much rain, in fact, that the interwebs "signals were lost". The geek in me hears this and goes "Whut?". It's not like we're doing morse code or something. To make it worse, they had no clue as to when the "signals" would return. I've now realized that's ...

  3. Who Knew Mondays could be good?

    So this weekend was good. I had originally planned on going for nice long walks on Saturday and Sunday but had nearly forgotten about my H&R Block appointment on Saturday. Geesh! Where does the time go?? It is that time of the year again, tax time. I figured I'd get some back and H&R Block are pretty good about reminding me about things I can cover as expenses and such. I owe a small amount to NYC for city taxes (only because the company didn't realize I was in NYC area and thus, taxed under ...

    I really need to remember to bring my phone with me when I go out. K keeps reminding me to do this. I should have but forgot.

    Class had finished early so I thought I'd go out for a walk given the nice weather. I haven't left the apartment in about a week and it was nice to stretch my legs and get out for a few hours. I had to get more yarn (yes, I'm a man who crochets... don't all gasp in horror at once). I was going to get my haircut but I'll hold off on that until Sunday (I've become ...

  5. Closer to financial goals...

    Last week I took a huge step and cashed in a whack of stock. This morning, I woke up to the proceeds of that. I took a chunk of it and sent it off to an ING Direct account (for tax payment later on). The rest I used to pay off 4 credit cards, the majority of my line of credit and huge payments on remaining credit cards (2). It is nice to be free of about 60% in a few minutes. And more importantly, the interest that would have accumulated with it and the stress that comes with that. I quick but not ...
