I haven't seen Bernie, but most of my family has and according to them it is a pretty accurate reflection of small-town Texas life in a weird and funny way. (We're from Texas, so that helps.) (Also an accurate reflection of small-town Texas life in the late 70s to the mid 80s? Dazed & Confused. For real.)
At my old place we had a giant delivery of steaks from the Omaha Steak company. We called them and explained that the previous tenants moved and Omaha Steak realized they had shipped it to an old address and told us to keep the GIANT BOX OF STEAKS because food can't be returned. All that to say, call the damn company that shipped it. Don't worry about the receiver, contact the shipper. It was their mistake.
The smell of most laundry detergents give me a headache so I have been forced to use ALL Free. (It works fine, but it is soooooo boring!) The two worst for triggering headaches are Tide & Gain, by far.
@Mike Dang I get mine at Costco, but the price is the same so probably the same brand. (I forgot sauteed and put in scrambled eggs for a delicious breakfast!)
I am a single person and go through a one pound tub of baby spinach a week. Hands down my favorite vegetable. When I'm not using it instead of lettuce in a salad, I'm making it into some sort of creamy deliciousness to be eaten over rice because I'm cheap, and like creamy delicious food. I have no idea if it is organic or not, though...
My brother is an executive chef with a recognizable name in some (very small) circles. Do I expect him to make me dinner for free when I ask? Nope. Do I still ask? Sure. And he'll occasionally make me dinner. But I sure as hell don't whine "but it's mmeeeeeeeeeeee" when he doesn't. Because I'm a grown up who understands that asking for a favor does not give you the right to complain when rejected. (This obviously struck a nerve.)
Real talk - uncooked ramen is absolutely DELICIOUS! I don't even bother with the flavor packet.
@Nick Word. The only people who think it is "a sign of good taste and allegiance to a worthy brand" are the people standing in line. To everyone else they're mindless consumer drones who will buy anthing Apple produces.
Why don't you try getting it at your local library? (Said as both a cheapskate and a librarian.)
Not a costume, but I reuse the same two dresses for the work holiday party in December because it is RIDICULOUS to spend that much on a dress that I will wear ONCE. My work party requires cocktail dress and since I wasn't in a sorority in college I don't have a stockpile to fall back on like most of my female coworkers. Also, I'm nowhere near the same size as any of my coworkers, so dress-sharing is out. One particularly dumb coworker got drunk and asked me, "Are you a lesbian, because I've noticed that you've worn the same dress to the holiday party two years in a row." She's REAL dumb.
