I do look forward to this night as one of my best friends and I get tickled every year (and everyone else thinks we're nuts) because our typical assigned job is to 'cut the cheese.' Inevitably, we make cracks about how "I'm cutting more cheese than you are" and "The cheese that I'm cutting is bigger than yours." followed by mass amounts of giggling. By the way, we both made it out of middle school without a problem.
Moving on, I was successfully able to go out and get LOML and my hair cut last night. We both avoid this activity like the plague. Neither of us care for the chit-chat in which you must engage with the hairdresser. We'd both rather just answer questions about how the hair should be cut and wait patiently while it gets done. We like this one place and had a great guy cutting both of us. He would talk the entire time, just ramble on, and all we had to do was reply with the standard 'Uh-huh's', 'Oh yeah's', and 'Really's'. He wasn't there last night (frown). So, we endured the random, awkward conversation with the very nice young lady who worked with us and then got the heck out of there. I guess it's a little weird that we're both so anti-smalltalk, but what's funnier is how long we can discuss (afterwards) the the bits and pieces of the uncomfortable exchange. We laugh and laugh about how much we hate that part of getting our hair cut. I know we're weird, but perfectly made for each other.
I guess that's enough chit-chat from me for now. You probably came here for "Thrifty Thursday" anyway. I gotta give the people what they want:
- Before you throw out those old calendars (I know, I'm probably three weeks too late for that) Anyway, reuse your old calendars to make bookmarks. Crafty and conscious huh?
- I have not tried this out (probably won't either) but figured I would share this FREE financial planner/ budget thing.
- I all for conserving my time, so I want to memorize these efficient dinner prep tips.
- If you are like me, your scarf-knowlesge is limited. So, if you want to get more use out of a scarf, check out all the variety of ways to wear a scarf. It makes me want to go out and buy more. That wouldn't be very thrifty though - darn.
