New Car, Caviar, Four-Star Daydream


As a jobless (yet interning) chick who hasn't been able to land jobs due to ex-CEOs from fallen companies taking lesser jobs and everyone scrambling for minimum wage, I'm well-versed in this recession crap.

To those of you who think it's not happening - trust me. Go talk to every business owner out there, big or small, and you'll see it. Happy times for all.

So... screw it.

Screw You Recession is a site made by Virgin Mobile to help everyone out with tips and info, but not in a preachy, 'you're-all-gonna-die-when-the-recession-devil-hits' kinda way. It's fun, it's cute and it made me smile.

How could I not, especially since they posted this video of a 93 year-old lady named Clara who teaches how to cook cheaply during a depression?



Hi Recession Grandma. I'll be over for cheap 'n easy dinner tomorrow at 6. I'll bring the pie crust.

Another helpful post had a link to a site that tells you where gas is cheapest in your area. Took me awhile to find Toronto, but lo and behold - I now have inside sources that tell me how C and I can run our Batmobile cheaper. And I'm seriously thinking about becoming a human lab rat for hire.

One thing is for sure, everyone seems to be getting through this recession by Twittering - even these guys. I'm so not up on these recession trends.

Was this post brought to us by the lovely people over at virgin mobile Canada?

Haha. But seriously, the people who are doubting the recession just haven't been hit (yet!)

Mindy, I miss you!

Nah, I've just come across some depressing supposedly "helpful" sites, but this one was more fun. Poor people need fun, too!

And you're absolutely right.Watch it, naysayers!
