Getting a case of the Mondays- delivered

0 Comments April 8, 2015

One of the most common-sense ideas for saving money is this: make your own meals and take them with you. Restaurants, coffee shops, and vending machines all charge a hefty markup on food, for both the service and the convenience. These temptations are plentiful around my office, but oddly, it’s not my appetite that leads […]

You can get a free “Let’s Go Blue” ringtone at phonezoo.com. For my fellow Wolverines, you know this is huge. Usually you can find many permutations of “The Victors” but none of the other songs and ditties, many of which echo the fun and pride of Wolverine games just as much as hailin’ dem victors […]

A few months back, I got serious (er, even more serious?) about making a side income and improving my finances. I started reading a number of personal finance (“PF,” as they call themselves) blogs. And after reading them for several months–3 of them in my RSS, one as a daily digest email–I’ve dropped them all, […]

Got one of those friends?

0 Comments February 9, 2008

I have a friendship (not a particularly close one, for reasons that will soon be obvious) fit for an old-school sitcom.

If Fred Rutherford was a naturally-size-0, designer-obsessed, 26-year-old bubbleheaded PhD student, it […]

Sometimes things do change for the better…. Alibris revisited

So I’m in grad school. Have I written about that? Somehow it’s not as easy to talk about as undergrad, not as fully realized a purpose in my life. Perhaps I’ll write another post about it soon. ANYway, I had to buy books for this semester. So after comparison shopping on www.addall.com and consulting the […]

Donations for Tax Deductions–Hooray!

0 Comments December 6, 2007

So my yard sale left me with far too many clothes items (both mine and other family members) from bygone years. After some research about the new tax laws, I decided to donate them all to Goodwill and take an itemized deduction. Why? Well, my used clothes have never sold terribly well on ebay, for […]
