    "I will never do that again! NEVER!" In my journey out of debt, that is one exclamation I found myself making time and time again. Most of the time my poor decisions were made out of necessity (i.e., making my mortgage payment on a credit card) or mental fatigue (i.e., throwing out mail from...

    Halloween is my favorite holiday; it's a holiday that is just plain fun and silly and creative. I don't have to reflect on what I'm thankful for; I don't have to ponder the real meaning of the celebration; I don't have to trot out my loving and romantic sentiments for the world to...

    Do you like TV? Yeah, me too. I love me some 30 Rock like nobody's business. So believe me when I say that I am not an uber-intellectual who decries HBO as the opiate of the masses. But brace yourself for something shocking... I don't have cable. That's right, it's been about four years...
  • Blog Post: At the movies: Staying cool and under budget

    It is HOT over here! To a ridiculous degree (literally). I'm in Philadelphia and every weather report involves some bar graph about how many 90+ degree days we've had so far in June.
