As a grad student, working part-time, I've tried to be a little more frugal. Mind you, new computer, new jeans, let's just say the last week hasn't been exemplary.
Anyways, I've taken to logging onto such sites as save.ca and brandsaver.ca, and sometimes I get sent applications for signing up for opportunities to win cash or prizes. I figure why not, and also it keeps me from getting bored and going out shopping.
But I got bit in the butt yesterday. I started to sign up for a $50,000 home makeover - I thought it could be fun for Carleigh and Gary - and then realized it was way more involved than just getting put in a draw, so I x'd out of the browser. Well, too late, evidently. The company has called my cell phone 9 times in the last two days.
So tonight I confessed to Carleigh.
Which led to some sympathy...
"You know who else is harassing me these days?" she started.
I responded with questioning eyes.
"The blind," she responded.
I burst into laughter.
"and the deaf!" she exclaimed, "they're calling like 3 times a day!"
