Valentine's Day Contest

I thought I'd remind everyone that my Valentine's Day Contest ends Monday at 11:59. Share some good frugal tips there and if you are lucky you'll have a $20 Ebay or Amazon gift certificate (your choice). Right now you have approximately a 1 in 10 chance of winning $20 - not too shabby.

Dollhouse

Regular readers know that I'm a big fan of the pretty much anything Joss Whedon does (though especially Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly/Serenity). After a three year break from anything that you would have seen, he returns this Friday with a new show on Fox called Dollhouse. Whedon won't admit it, but the Friday, 9PM time slot on Fox is pretty much the death slot - not even Jessica Alba and James Cameron could carry it with Dark Angel. I know some of you might not be science fiction fans - and Joss Whedon definitely does science fiction. However, it's science fiction in the way that Harry Potter is - a mechanism to tell an intriguing story with interesting characters. If you get a chance, I suggest you tune in or just DVR it this Friday.

Pet Peeve

The last three or four times I went to a restaurant that had ordered a soda that was all you can drink. Whenever the waiter or waitresses offers me a new soda, she takes the old one away - even if it's not finished. So I go from having soda to not having soda - sometimes for a few minutes. I realize they are just refilling the glass I have, but I kind of wish they'd put me in a two glass rotation so I didn't have to wait. The one I'm drinking stays until the next one is delivered. It's a small thing, so that's why I call it a pet peeve. Anyone else share this?

Enough complaining... this isn't Grumpy Man and Money. Here are the links for this week:

    Whedon rocks. I could watch firefly and serenity all day. I like the concept for dollhouse. The fact that the people are re-programmable allows every episode to be different. That’s one of the reasons I liked stargate. Every time they stepped through the gate it was a different story. It meant that they weren’t confined to a strict storyline.

  2. love whedon! i wish they were bringing firefly back.

  3. Yay, Dollhouse! At least I’ll actually get to see this one on TV before it’s cancelled! :P

    Years of Whedon fandom have made me a cynic.

    … I just realized that as I write this, I’m wearing my “Joss Whedon is my Master Now” shirt. That’s terrible.
