Today's news

Yes, this is what I'm doing on a Friday night. Don't judge me.

With scientific, technological, and medical breakthroughs, you get such heart-warming stories as this one. A 29-year old deaf woman is finally given the opportunity to hear the sounds that you and I take for granted with the help of a cochlear implant.

Unfortunately, for every warm-fuzzy story, there are 15 not-so-great news stories out there. If you were infertile or just wanting another baby, how would it make you feel to know that only 60 babies were adopted in England last year? As far as I know, I don't fall into either of those groups but this tears me to pieces. So many precious children growing a year older without the love parents can offer.

In techie news, Apple may be pulling its iconic iPod classic device as well as the iPod shuffle. Considering that the iPod classic currently boasts the largest amount of storage space amongst Apple's iPod lineup, this seems like a shot in the foot.

There you have it, folks.

You stay classy, World.


Fabulous freebies

So I've been on a freebies kick. No, I don't take whatever crap people are getting rid of. I spend 20-30 minutes each day going through freebie sites to see what companies are offering and requesting the best samples and goodies available.

Here are some of my recent scores:

Clockwise from top left: makeup bag from Bellevue Collection, panty from VS, sample of Taylor Swift's perfume, coupon for free skittles, and free redbox rental.

See? You don't need to spend a lot to enjoy the better things in life!

Frugally yours,

My kitchen smells of truffley mush

Dear readers, I know that you are all sad puppies when I am away, wondering when you will be reunited with your love. Well here I am!

Today I attempted to make truffle fries for the second time ever. They came out kinda mushy.

Not bad mushy, but not-fries mushy. Oh well, you live and you learn.

Do you remember that post a while back about the boy I dated and ended things with? Well, we got back together and ended things again. Sigh....

 I will be on a bit more I hope, so more stuff to come!
