Sooooo getting back from Seattle on Monday, coupled with new job, coupled with the class I’m taking, coupled with Brian being away on business means that I was a bad, bad blogger this week.  :/  I’ve even been procrastinating about replying to comments left on some of my freelancing gigs.  *hangs head*

I do have a few blogs “in-progress” so I’ll be getting those up in the coming week.

Seattle was not as satisfying as it usually is, but the concert I attended was AMAZING.  Throughout the whole show, I kept thinking to myself – “These are the moments I live for”.  I felt so alive.

But being alive does not equal being a productive writer!  So in the mean time, please check out these links from people who were not as lazy as I was this week:

  • Frugal Zeitgeist talks briefly about a guy who found $45,000 in his house… and then gave it back to the previous owner.  I’m of the opinion that if you bought something and it *happens* to have a giant wad of cash in it – finders keepers.  Maybe it’s selfish of me?
  • Mike at Money Smarts Blog blogs about Toronto’s new bike rental service.  I hadn’t heard of this before!  I think it’s a great idea, but I do live in Vancouver – city of bike lines and backyard chickens.  🙂  I would like to see this service come to Vancouver.
  • Isn’t it nice when you can have a smug, self satisfied moment?  Lifehacker suggests doing something that I have done for years – using a paper towel to keep your vegetables fresher for longer.  Works great for broccoli and lettuce in particular!  Try it!!!!
