Friday Links

Annabelle at Shopping Detox inducted Zooey Deschanel into her Frugal Icon Hall of Fame.  I used to think Zooey could be a little more frugal with her use of crazy voices, but I don't think so anymore. Not after the absolutely hilarious sex scene she did on New Girl a few weeks back.  I'd link to it, but ... learn how to use your own internet.

Ginger, of Girls Just Wanna Have Funds fame, wrote an article about taming our financial Achilles' heels.  I just recently wrote about one of my own weaknesses, but a newer one involves purchasing large quantities of glossy 8x10 signed headshots of Zooey Deschanel.

Kelly at Cordelia Calls It Quits reminded us that if we say we want something, but we don't take steps towards achieving what we want, then we don't really want that thing very much at all.  I wanted one of the walls of my condo pasted with headshots of Zooey Deschanel, so I bought them.  I'm living the dream over here, people.

Finally, Ninja over at Punch Debt in the Face wrote about how he effectively turned down a $14,000 raise by not moving into a relative's retirement home where he and the mrs. could live free of charge.  I wonder how much I'll need to pay in rent when my wife kicks me out after discovering my Zooey Deschanel wall?  I guess I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Are you serious? I'm madly in love w/Zooey Deschanel.

I do think she's pretty hilarious on New Girl (and I really liked 500 Days of Summer and Yes Man), but I'm not actually setting up a shrine. Maybe I will some day...
