It's getting chilly...

Yay! It's my favorite time of year- Thanksgiving time. I just got my new Gold Canyon Candle today. A lovely scent called "Cobbler on the Porch". Mmmm... I'd go light it right now and get me something warm to drink by the fire, but tonight we're going to FPU to hear the Buying Only Big, Big Bargains lesson! That's such a fun class, and since we're STILL mattress shopping, we figured it would be good to go to.

I hope your class is a free one. If not I guess you wouldn't be such a savvy money manager after all.

I believe I smell a Cheetah.....

Obviously anonymous doesn't have a CLUE!

Welcome, anonymous! I think you and me might have differing opinions about what money management involves. For me, it's not a "currency collection" that sits in a jar on my coffee table that I come home to stare at after a day at the office. Money management is about spending with a plan. Money is meant to be used.
But your "hope" for me is granted nonetheless- the class was indeed FREE.
Now that we've established my "savvy-ness"- you wouldn't happen to have a FREE king size mattress available, would ya?

HA!

Anonymous, don't feel bad; she's like a teetotaler going to an AA meeting...she's a natural born tightwad!

On another, more serious, note: "Cobbler on the Porch"?!?! They must be REALLY hurting for names. That's worse than most of James Patterson's book titles. Seriously, that's just about the cheesiest thing I've heard in the last week.

I hope you got a good deal on it; you know, from the "CLEARANCE PAGE: They Smell Good But Some Marketing Guy Got Fired Over The Names" page.

Which works great for a gazelle such as yourself!

Well, Shegazelle....all I can say is that P.J cannot know what he is missing. "Cobbler on the Porch" sounds like an experience you and I have had many times and a candle with that name that brings back those memories can only be wonderful. Hmmmm...smells like grandma's kitchen in the old days....

SheGazelle said...

It's a swell candle guys, I promise! I'll burn it next week when you come to my house, al. You'll surely want to stay an extra day because of it!

Well, it's obvious that Sis. Booker isn't that great at telling "cheetah's" from "gazelles"... because this anonymous is completely debt free, and I didn't need to pay for a class to teach me common sense. And I do manage my money well, including savings, retirement, investments and tithing. Which still leaves me with disposable income after my bills are paid. Thanks for commenting tho.

Don't take this wrong, it's only a question: why read personal finance blogs if you've got everything nailed down perfectly? Honestly, I'm just curious.

Meanwhile, I think the metaphor about cheetahs and gazelles needs to be refreshed in the minds of all my dear readers (be they named or nameless,) as some of the comments don't entirely reflect the metaphor in its proper sense.

anonymous,I think there are probably a lot of people with plenty of common sense that still needed someone to teach them how to manage money, oh and maybe a little humility :)

I just happened to be reading your blog because your my friend, not because it's "about personal finance". And my comment about paying for the class was a joke to reflect the irony of paying to learn how to save money. And while I'm not perfect, and could probably use a class (free or not) on humility, I do pretty okay on my finances, which is why I felt so free to respond to my "cheetah"ishness. And no, I have no clue what the metaphor is.

SheGazelle said...

Gotcha. Well, cool! I'm glad you're reading. But I gotta admit- I'm rackin' my brain- I can't think of one friend I have by that name!

For everyone who is interested in furthering their knowledge on the gazelles and cheetahs metaphor, there is always that handy link on the left titled "All you need to know about gazelles and cheetahs."

And for anyone who cares: I STILL NEED A MATTRESS!! :-D

If someone would hurry up and help shegazelle find that mattress I think we can all figure out if she really is the "princess" we think she is!

GREAT NEWS!

Gentry wet the bed last night...

I have a slightly used mattress for sale...cheap.

(OK, I'm lying...it wasn't Gentry)

Well, I stand corrected and I appologize then!
