(don't) fence me in [Jul. 15th, 2003|02:09 am]
Roy Janik
As cool as a wooden fence would be, I'm not going into hock for it. Right now, I just can't afford it. My fenceline is a good 200 linear feet, and the estimate is running about 2600 dollars. Which is a lot of money. It can be done a llittle cheaper if I do it myself (or make Dave do it), but not much. And if I do save up some money, it would be better applied towards my student loans, or an emergency fund, which I should really have but don't. So I'm going to hold off for a bit.

But to the end of frugality, I'm hereby declaring August Cheap Bastard Month. Cheap meals, cheap entertainment. Who's with me?

Count me in!

I'm sure Eric is tired of paying for all my crap anyway. And cooking is always fun.

Note: August 25th is omitted.

Right. August 25th is "Get Jenn Incredibly Drunk Day".

Oh, and did you see this austincommunity post?

Someone's starting a Knitting Meetup thing in Austin. And it meets tomorrow at Triumph Cafe'. You and Mindy should go.

Re: Count me in!

Yes, I did see that. But I'm currently not on a project and a group of complete strangers terrifies me. I would just get my thai iced tea and sit in the corner not talking. :)

Re: back from san diego

Becky and I made Mmmm Mmmm Mexicali (hereafter called spicy Rice and Beans) with cornbread and peach ginger ale¹ the other day, and it was delicious. It came to be about $6 for a full meal for five people.

The next day, we had breakfast burritos² and chocolate chip pancakes. Four people³, for about the same cost.

¹ peach nectar + ginger ale
² black beans, scrambled eggs, salsa
³ Tom and Becky and HJ and Lisa ;___;

Re: back from san diego

I have an issue of Cooking Light that has an article about cooking dinner for less than $10. Healthy (check) and cheap (check.) Wanna borrow/photocopy it?

I met an New Orleans SA goon who reminded me a lot of you, Roy. He was about your age, only still with long hair, and had your same slightly-depressed-but-still-very-happy manner. His name was Russell, which coincidentally starts with 'r'. There were lots of other small similarities.

oh we won't be needing Roy anymore!

Wonderful. I can now be replaced. And yeah, I should really shake the slightly-depressed thing. It was fun for awhile, but I need a new schtick.

No, he was like a 85% duplicate. I miss the original ;__;

Yeah that reaction so made me laugh. And I am so with you about the slighty-depressed thing. Mine is getting boring as well.
