So, how many weeks do you give me before I forget to do Pieces of Wisdom Wednesday? Do you think it'll be next week? That's pretty much what I'm thinking.
In case you didn't tune in yesterday–
–oh, and let me interrupt myself to tell you about a new thing that bugs me. You know how I'll be going along and something won't bug me then all of a sudden I want to stick a shish kabob skewer into the soft palate of everyone who does the new thing that bugs me? Like how the word "veggies" didn't bug me until it did?
My new thing is when journalists or TV personalities or whomever start talking about someone who is recently popular. And they will say, "Unless you've been living under a rock this past year, you know Robert Pattinson is a hit with all the girls."
"If you've been stuck on a desert island for the last three years, you do not know about Spencer + Heidi = Speidi."
"We assume you all know who Lady GaGa is, unless you've been living underground with Osama Bin Laden."
Oh, har-de-har-har. Thank you for that original joke. Really. And it didn't bug me till, like, yesterday when I heard someone say it and I was all OKAY WITH THAT WHOLE JOKE about you know who [blank] is unless you've been [somewhere remote here].
Also? Teenyboppers. I hate that phrase. Stop it.
Anyway, unless you decided to live like the Amish yesterday with Osama Bin Laden on a desert island eating veggies, and you didn't read my blog, we all decided to have a new feature other than the one where I interrupt myself and go off on tangents. That new feature is called Pieces of Wisdom Wednesdays.
On Tuesday, I will ask y'all a question, like, what's is your favorite way to make stuffing, or how are you making sure you're living your life to the fullest, or how do you keep from spending 20 hours a day on WebMD (again, I should probably keep my own issues out of the questions), and then you all answer me in the comments and on Wednesday I will post some of your answers.
Yesterday I asked,
What do you do in order to be frugal?
and I got a ton of answers. If you want to see them all, just go to yesterday's comments. Also, I have a new category at the bottom of my post called Pieces of Wisdom, so in the future you can click on that category to see all the tidbits from my many smart readers.
So here are some of the answers I got. I thought instead of just typing them down I would be like the dry erase girl and show them to you. Yes, I did go out and spend $5 on a dry erase board in order to show you how people lived frugally. Shut up.
Well, not everything. There is not a picture of Gerard Depardieu naked, sitting with the Eiffel Tower going up his arse.
I have no idea why that was the first example that came to mind.
So those were just some of the many tips we got from our frugal readers yesterday. Note no one said, "Do not buy Bye Bye, Pie Tshirts and mugs!" and thank heavens for that. Some things are a necessity.
Like Speidi. And teenyboppers.
