I read an amusing New York Times article the other day about "staycations" and how people are hanging out locally more than traveling out of town for vacations. As I am a personal money management nut (because I have terrible budgeting/spending habits), I have been reading about this phenomenon for a while in various blogs/forums/articles. I am so tickled by the term "staycation" and am looking to incorporate it into daily conversation more, which shouldn't be too difficult as I am staycationing this Labor Day weekend.
So far today, I have:
- Eaten leftovers from El Coyote (where they charged me 50 cents for pickled jalapenos, which they did not inform me about! Really, people? I don't think that's something they should charge for.)
- Made some rotini with butter, parm and pepper. Adam had some very helpful directions, which made for a butter-blunder-free pasta snack.
- Re-watched Volver. I loved it in when I saw it in the theater and a while back, I was able to buy the DVD for super cheap thanks to those persistent Borders Rewards emails and a gift card. I have been meaning to open the DVD for months; it was just as good as I remembered. Thanks, staycation!
