MY FIRST BICYCLE and an cheap ride to the beach

“Well, lucky for my parents claim me so they got the bonus. I’m not complaining though they bought the parts i needed to fix my dirtbike ($40), a dogpack ($30)and my first bicycle($175). Yes, my first bicycle. My dog loves the bike rides down to the beach (I make her carry everything in her new dogpack) and I’m loving the excersize, not paying for gas and helping out the environment. I still need some lights and a basket for the bicycle. I take donations…”

Stimulate This

“I put almost all of our check to pay off credit. By the end of the year we’ll be debt free. I would bitch about how my husband and I, being in poverty, only got $647, but I won’t. Because I know this is only a 2008 tax refund advance based on 2007 (we owed last year). So at least we will still get a refund next year where some people won’t because they got it all as a stimulus check. Same difference, but this helps us more now to look for a house to buy early next year. Our furry children will appreciate it. This may be a last ditch effort to make the presidency look good, but when people figure out it wasn’t free money Bush will be gone. People spend this wisely, it is your well deserved money. Oh, and as for the $47, it went to dinner out because it’s been a long time for that. So, thanks I guess.”
