End-of-the-week thoughts

I have to admit that I cheated at the end. I had a friend in town from SF and we went out drinking, which is, of course, not in the budget/not allowed as a food stamp purchase. I spent more in one night than I did all week.

Other than that, I think I did a decent job. I ate 3-4 meals a day with snacks of fruit & pb (although sometimes my "snacks" were pretty hefty, so that might count as a 5th meal). I actually have plenty of leftover food -- I probably could stretch the budgeted amount to 1.5-2 weeks of food. (I suppose then you'd get into the problem of keeping food fresh or multiple grocery store trips?) I even stayed away from all the free food at school.

I now have a better understanding of the food stamp "challenge" -- staying healthy while buying inexpensive foods that won't take too long out of a busy working schedule to prepare (and not grabbing a quick meal take-out!) and not being able to buy non-food necessities like toilet paper and whatnot on the government funding.

Hi there, I found this website just now via a search engine.

Anyways, I was curious if you might be interested in a 3 way link exchange. The result of this
exchange would be more people visiting your blog .

All you need to do is link back to my website http://new-hiphop-songs.com with the anchor text "New Hip Hop Songs"
and send me a email at brandonschlichter@gmail.com with confirmation.

Once I get this, I'll link to your blog from another one of my websites. This will benefit both our websites,
and avoid any penalties from a link exchange.

By the way, I love your blog!

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
