Holdin' Cash

I participated in a service auction last week and 60 college kids raised over $2200 for the sub for Santa program. It was amazing to watch. Seeing kids without jobs drop $60 to learn to groom a horse or $100 to have someone cook dinner for them and their roommates was quite interesting. I studied in my marketing courses how the generation Y/ MTV generations have more expendable cash than any other generations have ever had. I’ll admit, I got sucked into the excitement of the auction and walked away with a scooter ride with some guy I’ve never met and a dinner for 4. I lost the bids on the free brake change and a night of star gazing with a 6th grade science teacher.

Day 6 on a strictly raw foods diet. Biggest lesson learned: You can make people really uncomfortable by not eating something when offered. I can’t count how many times I’ve turned down food this last week. It really drives people nuts. Try it!

Vegas Baby!

My parents are flying to Salt Lake tomorrow and the three of us are hitting the road to sin city to hit up the craps tables in celebration of my Granddad's 100th birthday bash!!! You can bet with Ms Diane coming into town, Jessica will be cleaning house tonight. (What can I say, I am my mother)
