What My World's Like

Spotlight: My new favorite blog

Okay, so I don’t really have a favorite blog, per se, since I read nothing regularly, but if I had to choose one to be anything close to it, I’d have to go with Stuff Black People Hate.  I have to immediately follow that with “it’s not for everyone” because it’s not…at all.  It’s sincere yet blunt with an extreme lack of concern for political correctedness that’s quite refreshing.  Maybe you’ll like it, maybe you won’t.  Either way, it’s fine.

Majorly discounted food

The slowing economy is hurting a lot of people’s pockets.  Food prices are rising and wages aren’t.  Where’s the relief? 

Well, I’m glad you asked.  ;)  I just discovered a site called Angel Food Ministries that will provide relief for many for as long as they can.  For $30, you can order a medium-sized box of food valued at about $65.  The drop occurs only once a month, with different order and pick-up times for different parts of the country.  The drawback is that you have to order the food 2 weeks before you pick it up, but if it’ll save you 50%, I’d have to say it’s worth it. 

Just type in your zip code to locate the closest hosting site to you–usually a church–and place your order directly with them.

Here’s next month’s menu.  Thirty bucks gets you:

1.5 lb.
Rib Eye Steaks (4 x 6 oz)

Unfortunately, this doesn’t at all work with my pescatarian/vegan/”healthy” diet.  But maybe it works for you.
