Fight of the Century: Keynes vs. Hayek Round Two

These guys are awesome! 

 And just in case you missed it, here's their first video:

"If you're living high on that cheap credit hog 
Don't look for a cure from the hair of the dog
Real savings come first if you want to invest
The market coordinates time with interest

Your focus on spending is pushing on thread
In the long run, my friend, it's your theory that's dead
So sorry there, buddy, if that sounds like invective
Prepare to get schooled in my Austrian perspective." 

-Friedrich Hayek
(sort of)

I want plans by the many not by the few! What about you?

Sorry Blogosphere, This One Is For Me

I try to keep 'my audience' in mind when writing this blog, but sometimes I can't help but allow myself to be selfish. More often than not, I try to come up with entries that are relatable, but tonight is about a digital account of a memory I shared with two people that I love very much. Forgive me if this post seems a little cryptic. 

Thank you so much for exceeding my expectations of friendship almost every day by continuously connecting with me in the silliest ways imaginable and providing me a second home where I knew I was not only welcome, but wanted. I will miss you both so very much. 

Good night Aussies
Good night Marie Antoinette

P.S. One final thought that maybe everyone can relate to- is there anything more embarrassing than being absolutely serious?

In Case You Missed It

Awhile back I watched the trailer for the movie Catfish and thought to myself "this will either be really good or absolutely terrible." Not wanting to gamble ten dollars at the theatre, I decided to wait until it was available to rent, and then kinda forgot about it. 

I don't want to give anything away, and I would encourage you not to do any research if you don't know anything about the movie, but I will tell you that my husband and I are still talking about it, because turns out it's really good and absolutely worth watching.

Happy Friday Y'all!

I have the day off due to a city wide holiday which I definitely needed. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all my free time this weekend, but kicking back and watching a few good movies will take place at some point. 

Speaking of good movies, I saw a delightful film called Outside Providence about a month ago. The movie is based on a book by Peter Farrelly (of the Farrelly brothers) which chronicled his experiences at Kent High School. 

The reason my husband and I rented this movie is because we are huge Alec Baldwin fans. Baldwin plays the main character's father and he is hilarious as a gruff, blue-collar, single dad trying to "raise his boy right."  I couldn't find a trailer, but trust me this movie is funny, and Alec Baldwin is pitch perfect as always. 

And if you're in the mood for more Baldwin, and you've never seen the movie Malice, rent that too! Mr. Baldwin's amazing performance as a narcissistic doctor with "a God complex" is so sharp it's almost funny. I love this speech- check it out!

For the past few days I have started off my mornings by drinking coffee and watching this video. It puts me in the best mood! 

I love the way that kid dances! Thanks for sending this my way Kellie.

You Fix The Budget!

This is cool!  It's also not that hard to figure out what should go . . .

Thank You For Being A Friend

It's been a tough week for me. I got some news that wasn't altogether tragic, but definitely unexpected and therefore emotionally draining. I don't mean to be cryptic, but it involves my job, which we all know I don't talk about here. 

Thanks to all of you who listened to me vent, helped me find the bright side, and most importantly, sent me videos of Julian Assange dancing.
