Cash Advance Network

It is hard, this time of year, to be strapped for cash. For that reason, many people look to payday loans to help them with their Christmas shopping. It makes sense — Christmas is a time-lock. You have to have your presents wrapped and ready by the 25th. A payday loan can help you meet [...]

Week 207 and 206 “Sacrifice” and “Peace Out”

Thumbnail image for Week 207 and 206 “Sacrifice” and “Peace Out” 238 Weeks

Work continues to be great and exhausting. I am now, after two months, getting to a place where I feel like I know what I am doing (at least a little bit) but we missed out on an Angel episode last week so we watched two, back to back, to catch up. “Sacrifice” was an [...]

Week 208 “The Magic Bullet”

238 Weeks

I loved this episode of Angel. For many reasons. First, any screen time with Amy Acker is awesome, in my book. She is so great. Score one for geeky girls! Plus, I went through my own Kennedy assassination phase so a bookstore called “The Magic Bullet” is near and dear to me. I am very [...]

Week 209 “Shiny Happy People”

238 Weeks

This is week 209 and the Angel episode is “Shiny Happy People”. What intrigued me about this episode is how quickly everyone, even Wesley, is enthralled by the higher being (as yet unnamed). All the past falls away in her presence. They all forget how the being got here — the pain, suffering and death [...]

Weeks 218 Through 210

238 Weeks

Is it ironic that the first Angel episode I missed writing up was “Awaking” just about the time I was giving notice at my old job and starting to search for new work? I have missed a few write-ups as you can see. But I think my life is back to some semblance of order. [...]

Life and Money Update

238 Weeks

I have been quiet here for the last month or so. We had quite a life shake up and things are finally settling back down. We both left our old jobs for greener pastures. Well, sort of. Neither of us had jobs lined up, which seemed like it would put a damper on what had [...]

A New Start

238 Weeks

I am a little behind on my 238 weeks postings, but I have a good reason. I quit my job. Yeah. Fiscally responsible me: I quit my job without another one lined up. It is a long story and there are many twists and turns. For now, here’s the condensed, ready for prime time version. [...]

Week 219 “Long Day’s Journey”

238 Weeks

We are late getting to our Angel episode this week. Everyone has these sorts of weeks where everything crops up at once. Dentist and doctor appointments, big projects at work, meetings and car tune ups and it goes on and on. If we make it to Thursday night (we’re off on Fridays and Saturdays), it [...]

Week 220 “Habeas Corpses”

238 Weeks

This week has been a good one. I got a chance to talk with a few of my favorite people about money. I love it when that happens. I know that most people — Americans anyway — are weird about talking about money. It’s a taboo subject. We don’t talk about how much money we [...]

Week 221 “Apocalypse, Nowish”

238 Weeks

Why is it lately that the weeks seem so hard? There’s so much going on between work and family and day-to-day chores that it seems like there’s never any time just to sit back and relax on the porch. As it happens sometimes, when there’s a lull at work, other things step in to fill [...]

Week 222 “Spin the Bottle”

238 Weeks

Week 222 left me feeling refreshed, which is sort of like how everybody on Angel is feeling. This week’s episode is called “Spin the Bottle” and it was written and directed by Joss Whedon himself. In this episode Lorne shows up with a just can’t fail memory restoration spell for Cordelia. As you might imagine, [...]
