weekend pickthrough- a little queasy edition.

10 07 2010

i don’t know what’s up with me this week. feeling exhausted, disoriented, and a little queasy. maybe the heat, humidity, some kind of virus (don’t you even think about suggesting preggo or i will cut you)? whatever it is, i’ve been finding myself passed out on my laptop more nights than not, with good post ideas and zero energy to write them. having hopes that the impending rain will bring some relief, and that i can get back to my old energy level sometime soon. otherwise, i’m going to have to start snorting adderall or something, and god knows what that would do to my budget.

i need one of these so that i can make my real life a little more facebook.

a surprisingly clever way to remember multiple passwords.

candy sprinkles? brandy alexander? i need some serious help coming up with a burlesque name if i’m going to compete in strut next month. or i can just crap out and use this random generator

i’m inspired! expect a forthcoming post on the enchantments of discount bakery.

first the candwich, and now this? is there anything that they aren’t canning these days? (um no, apparently not).

hands down the best article i’ve ever read about hostingĀ  your own garage sale.

cardamom and cornflakes? pop rocks and goji berries? it’s time to get chocomized.

p.s. the picture accompanying this post is actually from an educational coloring book. is it just me, or is that a little messed up?





weekend pickthrough- stale peeps edition.

2 04 2010

i won’t eat them, but i can certainly still enjoy a good peeps show.

how dare they present this as a comprehensive list of venn diagrams, when they’ve omitted the king of them all?

some interesting ideas about coupons and class. (via the portland penny pincher)

in honor of our recent visit from the POTUS, a little lesson in teabonics.

is it possible for couponing to go…TOO FAR? (outrageous!)

videoport jones may be unmasked, but he still has good things to say.

finally! a budget style magazine that is actually stylish (sorry all you, but your wal*mart pedigree REALLY SHOWS).

it is the meaning of life after all, 42 lessons from frugal bloggers.

ohmygod it’s a going out of business sale! what do i do?

finally, after much deliberation, i’ve decided not to host the gelatin yogurt giveaway. i was going to give away the robe, but then i heard about this. sorry suckas! seriously though, the company has graciously offered me another giveaway that is both environmentally responsible and entirely meat free (and not too lame according to the pcitures). details forthcoming.

p.s. look to your right. you might notice a new sidebar item over there. even though they don’t have anything to do with brokeness, they have everything to do with 207. i present for your pleasure a list of my favorite local blogs (of all varieties). did i miss any?
