Another Reason To Hate/Love Mir
It's not a secret that I adore Mir. She's smart, funny, pretty, and writes circles around me. I hate her for all of these same reasons, because it is totally unfair that she should be all of these things. And she sings. And bakes. And and and.
Earlier this year, she announced that she was training/fundraising to participate in the Susan G. Komen Boston Three-Day. She's raised five thousand dollars so far - and she's still fundraising, this time for her training partner. See, who couldn't love this woman?
But then, you know what she did? She went and launched a new website. Want Not is Mir's roundup of great deals and smart shopping strategies to get the most from your money. Want Not is proving addictive, and Mir's enthusiasm for a bargin is not unlike a big game hunter with a coveted animal in her sights. She loves a bargin. Loves. And readers get sucked in with all that enthusiasm for safari-deals. Don't miss this one! Shop now! Free! Go! Go!
See, again, the love. But the hate, also, because I am determined to cut back my spending drastically, and reclaim my budget. Just today, Mir gives fabulous advice on great bedding deals. I love sheets! I could totally buy new sheets! Look at these deals! And yet, I do not need new sheets. Oh, sheet. Sheet, sheet, sheet.
I do not need them. But you might! Or, you know, you might need one of the other wonderful deals that Mir shares with her (weak-willed, internet-shopping-addicted) readers who love a bargin as much as their children. More! Sometimes, certain readers love a bargin MORE than their children. Go forth, and discover. You'll
hate love Want Not.
