Today it was rainy and cold--I loved it. I'm not necessarily a big fan of winter, but I live for the change. And in observance of the wonderful weather (which is tailor made for curling up on the couch and having a chat), or maybe because of the lack of absolutely anything on TV, Sweet Husband and I had some very random conversation, two thoughts from which I'll share....
First, I tabulated the grand, post-consolidation total of my student loans. My first thought was, "I don't feel that much smarter." My second was (a la Minnie Driver in "Good Will Hunting"), "My goodness, my brain is worth quite a lot of money." When I shared the number with Sweet Husband he said that maybe I need to start wearing a helmet to protect my investment.
Second, we established that--regardless of the search term you enter, regardless of how innocent it may seem--if you do an image search on Yahoo you will find some sort of pornography or semi-pornography. Go ahead, try it.
My conclusion--if the world is going to hell, I hope it happens before I've had to pay too much of my student loans back.
