Tip For Tomorrow: The return of Two-fer Tuesday! Where you get two, two, TWO posts for the price of one! Post in the first part shall be a companion piece to my Fox 9 segment; post in the second part is a surprise.
(Meaning, I haven’t thought of a post idea yet. It will probably involve something cheap. And, more than likely, fabulous.)
Further Elucidation Of My Cheap Deal: I have a bunch of stuff to share and I’m stumped for a way to combine that stuff into one cohesive post. Mostly because I’m too lazy to try.
So instead, I’m just going to throw it all out there and see what sticks. Or run it up a flag-pole and see who salutes. Whatever. You get the point.
Cool Donation/Radio Thing:
Pack Your Bags! Handbag Donation Drive at the ARC Value Village in Richfield, MN.
Donate your hand bags and receive an entry into ARC’s drawing for BIG PRIZES. Plus, you can meet Lori and Julia, The Drive-Time Divas from FM 107 – that alone is worth the trip down there, believe me.
The event is May 15th, from 6:45 to 8:45 PM.
For more information, go here: http://www.arcsvaluevillage.com/. And then come back here when you’re finished.
Below: The bags I plan to set free at the donation event. It’s time they move on to a new home.
FREE Dessert for Moms for a Month:
This just in from Serena –
“Playing on the political election this year, Boston Market has created a campaign that will give Mom what she deserves - more than one day of recognition - with TheMomsParty.com. This site allows users to join the "Moms Party" - a nonpartisan petition that promises to support moms in all that they do and give them more recognition than just one day.
The campaign features a website with fun political-themed posters where users can upload photos of their mothers and users can nominate their mothers to be the leading candidate (the more views your mom's campaign poster gets, the more likely she is to become the leader).
Best of all - all members of the Moms Party will receive a coupon for free dessert throughout the month of May. This offer comes just in time for the arrival of Boston Market's newest dessert, too - the Tart Cherry Cobbler.”
For more information, go here: www.themomsparty.com. Now all I need to do is borrow a kid for the rest of the month…

Look Over There (Where?):

Please feel free to visit any and all of these sites AFTER you are done reading my post. Thank you.
Let’s All Play Along:
Now for today’s group activity – Please answer the following three random questions. You can post your answers in the Comments section.
Why? Because sharing bizarre bits of information about oneself to complete strangers is FUN. And, also, FREE.
1. What song are you mostly likely to sing in the shower in the morning?
"Mein Heir" from Cabaret. It was a fine affair, but now it’s over.
2. What insect bothers you the most?
I hate them ALL. And yellow-and-black stinging things the most.
3. What is the weirdest thing you can recall wearing, in recent memory?
For me, it's this:
It’s supposed to be a crinoline for my Renaissance costume, but mostly it looks like a big, pink tutu. And there ain’t nothing wrong with that.
