You are what you eat

It’s a good thing the phrase “You are what you eat” isn’t true, otherwise I would be a french fry filled burrito… But I did hear something the other day that I think holds a little more truth. Someone told me if you average out the income of your five closest friends, your income is probably […]

What do you self insure?

by Ninja on August 26, 2010 · 33 comments

If you’re like me you pay a pretty penny each month for insurance. Health, dental, vision, car, life, renters, it seems like the policies never stop. Although I don’t mind paying for the peace of mind, I’d be lying if I pretended I was excited about the expenses. This is why I have a goal […]

There are two things women are better than men at: Peeing sitting down and having babies. That’s it. Okay not really, I just was trying to get your attention.

Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic. San Diego doesn’t hate me, but it definitely hates my income. And if you live in San Diego, it hates your income too.

Do you upgrade?

As I type this post, I’m sitting amongst the lowest of the low. The scum of the earth. The outcasts. That’s right. I’m flying coach. Gasp! Let’s be real, flying first class is pretty awesome. Not only do they enjoy a couple of inches of extra legroom, but they also have the luxury of having […]
