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.
