From Laura at C&C


1. Julie would like to know one frugal tip this week.

Once you start referring to your neighbor's cat as a 'chinese chicken' it is easier to eat.  Meat is one of the most expensive grocery items, next to good beer or wine.  You have to start cutting costs somewhere if you want to keep drinking.  If I'm going to be eating cat meat, I'll want to chase it with something stronger than mountain dew. And by 'mountain dew' I mean twice run coors light.

2. What are you reading this week?

Today I am reading Train Dreams, by Denis Johnson and obsessively the news online.

3. Barbara wants to know: do you hit the snooze button on the alarm clock, and if so how many times?

I think I might have answered this …but I can't remember.  I don't have an alarm clock.  I have dogs that dance on my sweet breads around sunrise.  There is no snooze alarm, I've tried.  All the slapping at 'buttons' seems to only encite them more.

4. If you had to travel in a sedan (or if you already drive a sedan type car) and you had five or six dogs, how would you handle it?

I'd bitch incessantly and probably tailgate those assholes who drive alone in their 6 bedroom 3 bath Ford Apocolypse SUV, without the S or the U, 3 miles to drive-thru a coffee hut, where they purchase some appalling 'skinny' double shot decaf whipped cream coffee beverage and pay with a credit card. Assportals, for sure. But that's no different from what I do anyway.  Driving a sedan full of 5 dogs isn't tragic, just inconvenient.  What's tragic is how little meat there is on a chinese chicken wing.

5. How much do you filter what you put on your own blog?

Really?  Depends on the blog. And what one means by 'filter'…
