Buy Nothing Day

That special holiday is finally here. I am a big fan of reminding yourself that you don't have to spend a cent to keep yourself entertained. It's good for the soul and the wallet. The best things in life are indeed free.

Fresh Wilderness Air
Health
Luck
Friends
Sex (sometimes) I can't really compare having never put myself in a situation where I have paid for sex. At least not with money)
People Watching
Crystal Clear swimming holes
Hot exhibitionist neighbors
Sleep

On an somewhat related note, The Muppet Movie is very good when you view it after eating brownies. Maybe it's the sugar, the chocolate, the caffeine, who knows what's in those brownies that makes movie time so much fun. Is it possible to be too relaxed?

I invite you to share your own personal experiences with "brownies." For instance once, after eating one too many brownies, my girlfriend and I saw some bright lights down the street. It was 2 am. We were certain-- and I mean 100% sure that the street lights were heaven and that we could walk, it's not that far, take our dog Freckle Dick to heaven where they would fix his leg (it constantly twitches like an erratic heart beat. You have to be careful where he is sleeping because every so often he has a spasm and if you're in the twitch's path you're gonna can get karate-dogged right in the head. It's hard to look sophisticated when you're about to sip your wine and your dog kicks you upside your head. It no longer bothers him in case you were concerned.

Also feel free to share any tips on how to entertain yourself or friends for free in honor of Buy Nothing Day.

I love The Muppet Movie. Extra sugar, chocolate and any other mystery ingredients only add to the joyous experience of watching a a frog and a bear seeing America

(sing along with me..)

Kermit: There's no limitation to mixin' and matchin'
Rowlf: Some get an itchin' for a critter they've been scratchin'.
A skunk was badgered the results were strong.
Both:
I hope that somethin' better,
I hope that somethin' better,
I hope that somethin' better comes along!!!
Rowlf: Beep bop bidder da dum dum bum bum bum!


Rowlf: (spoken): It's not often you see a guy that green have the blues that bad!

I love when Steve Martin brings Piggy and Kermit the restaurant's finest wine from Idaho. "Care to smell the bottle cap?"

Oh and when Orson Wells, looks the muppets over and says,"Prepare the standard Rich and Famous Contract."

I see a muppet marathon in my near future.
