I knew that degree in political economy would come in use one day


What's this? Oh, it's just Money magazine's annual list of the 100 "best investments, strategies, products, and people in the world of money," that's all. Tum-te-tum. And leafing through, what do we find?



HOLY CRAP. This blog is the world of money's second best investment, strategy, product, and person! Lil' old It's Lovely! I'll Take It! We're number two! We're number two! We're number two!

To which I have to say: watch your back, FNBO Direct Online Savings Account. Watch your back.

*Applause, applause!* When I first found your blog, I spent nearly two weeks reading back through it, and now I anticipate every new posting.

You deserve some recognition, I've passed your blog link on to every person I know :-)

I've never done that before, but really, your blog appeals to everyone. Go you!

Exactly, Karasu. I do this for the great big piles of money that are delivered to my Swiss bank account every week.

Stuart said...

Great. That's just great. Now you're gonna get all full of yourself and forget all the little people who helped you along. I know how it goes. It's just ... it's ... (turns away and curls into fetal position, sobbing inconsolably)

That's pretty cool. It's always nice to see someone get recognized unexpectedly when they were just plugging away at that thing they were doing mainly just to make the world a bit more amusing.

In celebration, I'm going to go comically vandalize as many homes for sale for fodder for future posts as I can before I get arrested!

Nocturnal Queen said...

Stiletto Sports Jen said...

Congratulations! You definitely deserve it! I'm not even sure how I found you site! I was enjoying my cup of coffee checking my Reader and someone had linked to you.....and I proceeded to shoot my coffee all over my computer while shrieking with laughter.

Sometimes the listings are funny as is.... but really it's your spin and flair that has me literally, crying with laughter!

Thanks for the fun!
