The news is reporting on how people are "downsizing" at home and a woman just said that her family has gone from being a "Whole Foods family to a food bank family." Um. It makes me think that maybe they weren't a "whole foods" family to begin with. At first I was upset about the debt relief the stimulus package was going to offer families who were "underwater" with their shady mortgages... I thought, "What the? I'm responsible... I'm not one of the people who borrowed beyond their means... I paid my house off completely within 5 years... I have money in savings... what am I going to get out of this?" Well, if my neighbors don't have to foreclose and further devalue my home, that's a good thing. Right? I'm still a little salty that stories on the news are about "downsizing" when really, people need to take ownership for living beyond their means and contributing to the whole mess. Yes, I also blame the banks... and I still think that the Bush Administration deserves the lion's share of blame for this whole mess (hello "WAR" and letting the Stock Market run amok with the "renegade" fund managers... not intervening when all these large corporations started failing and investigating the outrageous bonuses the CEOs were still receiving...) but it comes down to personal responsibility, too.
Anyhoodle, that's my rant for the day.
Why I shouldn't date Frank: He's indecisive. Indecision is not attractive on a man and he couldn't even decide what to eat... or what he wanted to buy... and if he bought something, guilt or whatever would make him return it (hello, shoes). He couldn't even decide whether or not he wanted to date me.
