Fewer neighbors, more Mac Book Airs. That's my motto.
The Sproutwells deserve a spot on the TV with Zim and Spongebob and the rest of them -- I really like this cartoon, a lot.
And like the Sproutwells, I'm not so crazy about neighbors. We used to live next door to a guy who would, every time he saw us outside, come over and talk. And talk and talk and talk. He drove me nuts-- I'd go outside to read the paper, and he'd come over. I'd be playing squirtguns with the kids, and he'd come over and talk. I'd be doing yardwork, and he'd come over and talk.
I would have put up with that neighbor if, like the Sproutwells, I was always getting cool packages of stuff from freshfunds. Freshfunds is an eBay like site where you can bid on prizes.
All you have to do is join up -- it's free- and then using the points you get from the healthy snacks you're already buying, log in to bid on great prizes -- like the one I'm going to bid on, the Apple Mac Book Air-- a notebook computer I can carry in my pocket, practically.
