So, there is this tradition at the Washington Bureau called "Fridge Friday." If you have anything in the fridge you care to keep, you better take it home! Because if not, it's almost always destined for the trash can.
Since I'm in at least a personal recession (I'll let the economists, lawmakers and presidential candidates debate the status of the nation), and I'm paying a mortgage and my own crazy high rent right now, I'm trying to be frugal.
That means eating cereal. Lots of it. At home. At work. So, I have some milk in my water bottle in the work fridge.
I didn't want it to get thrown away before it expires.... So, I took action, and Nikole documented it. (Gosh... I look awful! I really need to step it up more for work... maybe if I slept more than 4 hours at a time... maybe.)
I was laughing my bed head off... but this is serious business.
Too bad in my sleepless stuper I left the "a" out of "away".....
Please don't throw me away.
I seriously can't afford more milk and I will cry.
Fridge Friday is no joke!
This weekend I have to hit the road again... because EXACTLY what I want to do - spend 8 hours inside my SUV. It's starting to feel like a prison cell.
Where I really want to be is on my balcony... my new perch.
I got a papisan chair off of Craigslist, wahoo!
And yes, that's Brokaw chewing on an empty water bottle.
He likes chewing on empty plastic bottles almost as much as I like chewing on brownies.
Wish I had one right now... I even have milk to wash it down with.
Happy weekend to all of you.
