It’s time for a vacation, homies.

by J. Money on Sunday, August 7, 2011

I know it *seems* like I’m always out of town for a vacay, but this time it’s a REAL one. AKA not for business or Love Drop or for a conference (though oddly enough I’m currently in the air flying back from San Diego’s BlogHer! Haha…). But my goal is to not write a single blog post this week, and see what happens to my brain. These 16 hour days are starting to scare it a bit, and I barely convinced it to let me write THIS post! ;)

I’ve lined up some pretty cool guest posts to check out while I’m gone, so the financial goodness should continue moving forward until I come back later this weekend… you might even get lucky and find a cooler blogger than me! Wouldn’t that be fun?

I’ll still be around tweeting and checking emails, but for the most part you can assume I’m on the beach drinking beer and getting a fantastically annoying sunburn. And hopefully beating my brother in a riveting game of Trivia Pursuit! The best game ever, with the exception of maybe only Monopoly ;)

‘Till next time my friends, keep it classy!

PS: Some of my favorite tools:
personal capital Personal Capital (FREE) -- If you’re looking for a robust financial tracker, Personal Capital is the way to go! They’re like Mint, but on steroids and have much better tools for investment and net worth tracking. // Full review Digit (FREE) -- A super easy (and automated) way to save. Every day Digit analyzes your income and expenses and will push money aside for you any time it sees extra sitting there. I've saved over $4,000 myself using them so far! // Full review

You’re just still hung over from CheeseburgHer. Don’t lie.

Enjoy your vacay – and next time I see you, I’mma kick your azz in some Trivial Pursuit. Except the sports questions. I suck at those.

Well, damn. I complimented your hair on Thursday night, but didn’t know until the last possible moment that the dude with the ‘hawk was the dude with the site I dig. Kudos – you’re like, a well-funded, punk-rock ninja, there.

Thanks everyone!! It was SOOOOO needed this week :) Though I got my ass kicked in Trivial Pursuit, haha… one game I came close to winning though! We have our own way of playhing now — instead of going around the board asking 1 question at a time, we actually ask each player all 5 or 6 questions on the card and then count how many you get right. The best to 10 or 15 wins that “round” :) MUCH more fun, and quick, than an entire game w/ the normal rules (and a lot easier too when you only have 3 players).

But yeah – back in action now and ready to spill the beans on how much I spent last week! Look for it tomorrow :) As well as my metal detecting findings – W00T.

@Donna Freedman – Hah! I only had like 2 beers at CheeseburgHer ;) You’re probably still recooperating from the lack of sleep! You were up way past your bedtime, haha…
@Sarah – Bring it!
@Terra (aka Zoeyjane) – Woah, really?? That’s so cool! Wish I would have told you about the blog then – I was being all chatty about Love Drop to everyone ;)

Ha! Funnily, Mommycosm and I were talking about Love Drop, and that’s how you got IDed.


12 J. Money August 24, 2011 at 12:32 pm

That is awesome! Someone else found out who I was from her too, haha…. small world, gotta love it ;) She actually nominated next month’s Love Drop recipient too, so if you happen to live in the Boston area, you’re welcome to join us!
