weekend pickthrough- cleaning up my act edition.

2 10 2010

it’s been a wacky summer. once upon a time, i posted 5 or more times a week. i deal hunted. i cataloged. i photographed my groceries like a crazy person. then sometime this summer, i got lazy. or busy. or both. not to be a crybaby, but committing to writing a blog every day (or almost every day) is really hard. nowadays i’m lucky if i can squeeze out one post between weekend pickthroughs. NOT COOL. anyway, consider this weekend pickthrough my profound apology, and sincere promise to try and get back to where i was when i started (or at least closer to it). here is a list of my potentially empty promises to you:

1. i will try to write at least 4 times a week. even if the posts are kind of crappy.

2. i will try harder to respond to comments within 48 hours, unless there’s like a 100 of them, which totally never happens.

3. i will relaunch my diet blog being bess marvin with a totally sweet (ok, actually, it’s kind of lame, but it does involve free candy) giveaway.

4. i will bring back the “worth the trip” feature, and actually get some deals up in this business.

ok, i should probably distract you with some weekend pickthrough right now, before i say anything else that could potentially end up being a lie. what i can promise you, is that you’ll never look at a snuggie the same way again.

you’ll also never be able to read your babysitter’s club books again.

a creative use for burritos! (although, i think i’d probably use bagels instead).

karate bears!

the mostly true adventures of lepage and rooks. (seriously, 207ers DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO OUR STATE).

i was never a hairdryer person or a gun person, but now i might be both.

no, mocha dick isn’t a porn title. but it totally should be.

you really can buy EVERYTHING on amazon.com, but the product descriptions here are priceless.

i really should have named my dog majestic crystal. although if brother brent doesn’t show up, maybe i can just hook up with this guy.

this is gonna make my ipad so awesome! you know, when i get one. or steal one. or make one in my garage.

Imagine my surprise this morning when I saw your guest post over at Coupon Goddess. I was particularly amused (and I’m not kidding, this is totally true) because one of the things I bought on sale yesterday was … Pink Himalayan Salt.

Great post. Glad to see you’re getting guest posting gigs.

that is so crazy. i hear it’s wonderful, it just seemed like such a weird thing to give to a food pantry! thanks for checking me out on the coupon goddess, i’m pretty psyched to be helping cover while she’s on vacay. she’s my crazy coupon lady hero.

Hi, so happy to see you on Coupon Goddess too! Love both of your blogs, like I’m sitting in the room with you! I found both of you about the same time, wonder what it would be like w/you and Melanie together! Cracked me up when your Dad wished you a happy anniv and you apologized for the cursing, so funny! Great gluten-free post too, have some friends that can’t eat bread – I, personally, could not live without it! Keep up the good work!

thank you so much! melanie is hands down my favorite crazy coupon lady, and she has been so freakin awesome to me every since i started this blog. being able to guest post while she’s on vacation (in greece- lucky bitch!) has been a pretty kick ass honor. as for bread, i am so with you. i just ate a big bowl of fettuccini and two hamburger buns for dinner (i start my diet tomorrow). without gluten i would be lost and miserable (although probably at least 2 pants sizes smaller). although it is good to know that there are affordable alternatives (plus those cakeface kids such nice people!).
