Father's Day, on June 19th this year, is fast approaching. You've (maybe) already got your Father's Day gifts covered, and now it's just a question of how to spend the day.
According to seasonal advertising, your options are limited to only the most traditionally masculine of activities. You can barbecue, attend a sporting event, have dinner at the Playboy Mansion, etc. But if you're tired of doing the same activities year after year, here are a few suggestions for frugal Father's Day activities outside of the hyper-masculine box.
Recently, the Internet learned of pop star Katy Perry's crazy list of tour demands (link contains some NSFW language). Among other things, the 45-page document stipulates that Perry's dressing room must be painted in cream or soft pink tones, must boast two cream-colored egg chairs, and may not, under any circumstances, contain carnations.
Some time back I re-watched all the Sex and the City episodes and was inspired to write the blog Wine Gifting Your Girlfriends Sex and the City Style. This is what happens when I have writer's block: I am forced to turn to the television for prospective topics.
I regret to inform you all that I have been very behind on my daytime TV viewing and watched a Days of Our Lives marathon over the weekend.
Okay, so I'll be the first to admit, this blog post is at least three days too late to be useful--but you can start planning early for next year.
You can throw a superb Super Bowl party or watch the Indy 500 all day or have folks over for game 7 of the World Series, but the Kentucky Derby is like all the excitement of those events focused into a laser beam. They call it the fastest two minutes in sports for a reason--and that reason is not a misunderstanding of how time works. Because of that, a Derby party is quick and easy and therefore less expensive.
As an added bonus--unless you live near Kentucky--you are likely the only one of your friends having a party that weekend.
Seeking to answer that old question, "Can money can buy happiness?," a recent study polled subjects about their income and emotional well-being. The researchers asked about how much the subjects had laughed, smiled, and "experienced enjoyment" the previous day. The findings suggest that money has a significant effect on a person's reported happiness up to the income level of about $75,000 (yearly income per individual). After that, increased income appears to have little effect on happiness, according to this research.
Whether or not you've reached the $75,000 a year level, I think everyone deserves affordable ways to laugh, smile, and experience enjoyment.
