Tossed Salad Friday

~~I saw “Before & After” photos for a product. If I’d be happy looking like the “Before” snapshot, what the hell does that say?

 

~~Check this out! Someone sorta, kinda semi-debunked one of the sales tactics that has been perpetuated on potential home purchasers forever:

Since the peak in home prices, mortgages rates have declined and affordability has risen dramatically. Housing affordability is at levels not seen since prior to the early 1990s …While real estate professionals often say that “now is a good time to buy,” it is clear today that April 2006 was probably not a good time to buy, while now may well be the time.

~~As a health conscious vegan, I’ve never yet found a Paula Deen recipe that reflects my sensibilities or was worth the damage to my cardiovascular system. However, if you want a great laugh, read the earliest comments that go along with this less-than-recipe of hers. Hysterical! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/english-peas-recipe/index.html

 

~~ If there are only two sides to the plug-in cord that charges my phone, shouldn’t I have a 50-50 chance of getting it correct? My first attempt is wrong 99% of the time. 

 

~~ I was speaking with a former client the other day who “lost” her home when she and her ex divorced. I expressed my regret over the split, but she batted away my concern, saying, “That’s fine. I don’t miss him̶ I miss my house!”

 

~~Let me know if you can watch this without grinning (or singing along):

 

~~A writer complimented me on a headline I wrote. I replied, “Sometimes inspiration visits the realm of the overwhelmed!”

 

Enjoy your weekend! The Mets had a great game yesterday afternoon, leading up to a (semi) monumental Rangers victory last night! With two of my favorite teams in the playoffs, and the third looking better than anticipated, I’m all for letting the wins roll on!

LET’S GO RANGERS!

GO, NY KNICKS, GO!

LET’S GO METS!

Me, too. I remember singing along as a family, but we never had "our car song."
