Got this email from a fellow sexy reader, wondering how gambling may fall into the whole budgeting equation here. Which I personally find AWESOME because it A) means he's not an addict! (Anyone who formulates a plan before betting everything on black has a good head on their shoulders in my eyes ;)) and B) means we get to talk about poker and blackjack today! Yay! Stuff we
Also, watch the Redskins whip up on some Cowboys! ;) HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! (Art by jelene)
I just got finished reading through this DOPE article by Bridget on money personalities, and the first thing I thought was that I had to share it with y'all!

But she was going through a temporary hard spot and had a plan of paying me back, so I caved and decided it was worth the chance. And I was right! I am now 2-1 in the "loaning money to friends"

I had this dream last night that the world was run by gargantuan turkeys, and they were all out to eat us!! Which means 2 things right about now: 1) I have to stop eating Fruity Pebbles at all hours of the night for dinner. and 2) It's THANKSGIVING!!!!! Rejoice! We all have so much to be thankful for today, and I just want to say how much I've appreciated each and
And just like that, J. loses an entire decade. But my damn if it wasn't a good one! Graduations, marriages, travels, blogs, (beers) - I suppose we can close it out ;) Although the "30's" sure don't sound as nice, eh?Oh well, I won't sit here and proclaim my elderlyness right now. I'm sure half of you can beat me in that department any day! (ooooooohhh) I got mad love for all
