Home Again

January 7th, 2014 at 11:52 am

The College is open today, but I am not there. When it is still below zero, I am not walking to the station -- besides, the trains have had all sorts of switching problems, forcing many to wait for hours. I do not want to part of that scenario.

I texted my boss this morning and simply said I would work from home. It appears, from the email I'm getting, that not many others are in the office. Including my boss.

I'm really looking forward to the weekend, when the temperatures rise to the 30's. (Could that be?)

I checked out "Extreme Cheapskates" on Netflix and I'm disappointed that the producers obviously went for the weird and sensational. I would like to pick up some tips, not be grossed out! They make frugal people look like crazies. Seems like there is no middle ground in the media between this and those annoying "tips" about how to save on your next Hawaiian getaway -- or how to save big money by paying your bills on time! Big whoop!

I'm going to work tomorrow, but first I have to get my car out of the downtown garage. And that means I have to take the train one stop north to get there. And I have to do it tonight, or I will have to pay for parking. Who knows how much? Three days worth? I don't know how they will figure it. I just know I have to get it. Thank goodness, the plowing is done and I now have a place to park it!

    We have seen portions of Extreme Cheapskates and you are right...weird and sensational. Even I am not going to resort to those tricks of the trade!

    We are like you here downstate...looking forward to the double digit temps this weekend.

    I agree about Extreme Cheapskates. I haven't seen one yet that I could get any tips from.

    I also agree about the TV show - one episode I saw where the people seemed somewhat "normal" they shared dental floss and a toothbrush!!! YUCK!! (Meant to post about watching that and forgot).
    Sorry, I'll spend money for things like that. Not to mention I always get a FREE toothbrush and floss samples when I visit my dentist - extras even if I ask for them.
