On Sending Money and Paying-for-College Angst

I tried out five different ways of sending money internationally so you don't have to! And now I have to figure out how to file the most complicated expense report ever.

I also publicly admit to crying about the cost of college. Turns out I wasn't the only one soggy-eyed in the financial aid office. Yeah for blogger-commenter commiseration!

A perfect-world hybrid of these stories would involve poor students receiving cash from the sky to pay for school. My work here is never done.

For those of us who are still asked about prom...

Thots on aging after watching the Olympics the other night.

But more importantly, while researching for this post, I found out that scrunchies.com actually exists.

I'll be in Oregon...

September 3rd-9th. I'll be doing work some of the time, but let me know if you're going to be around.

I'm Cranky. And I Consume.

The best part about being really cheap is you stumble find ways to get ordinary things (like books) for next to nothing. In today's WSJ, I review four different sites that allow users to swap paperbacks for free. You don't get burned with fines or sales tax, just a few bucks for media rate shipping. Caters to both monetary woes and inherent laziness.

Read it online here or find it on D2 of today's print edition.

Now if only I could find the spare time to read the books.
