“A man comes from the dust and in the dust he will end”—and in the meantime it is good to drink vodka.
or whiskey… bourbon… wine… tequila…

I’m jet-lagged, wine sopped, bread clogged and totally time-zone screwy. I returned from Houston late last night, but am still recovering. I need some help. Even though I indulged in whatever was put in front of me in Houston, I’m eating all carbs all the time just to be able to stay awake! If I’m not careful, before the day is done, I’ll be one big giant JABBA-JIGGLE. This could get ugly. To top it off, I received a box looking just like this filled with decadent, delicious chocolates today.
Here’s how this could work for you, though. BEFORE I received this box of yumminess, the great folks at SUCRE CHOCOLATES reached out asking if they could send chocolates to one of YOU, my lovely readers.
My immediate response was, “Shhh-NO! Don’t you people know that my life’s mantra is anything is better with a little chocolate, or vodka, or both?” I let them know I would have to “sample” these supposedly great chocolates, before imposing them on one of you.
So to hell with my jabba-worries. It’s time to JABBA-INDULGE people.
Soon, I’ll offer one of you gorgeous “commenting” readers a chance to win a box all to yourself! It won’t be long… I’ll be over here in my corner conducting my chocolate experiment and JIGGLING up. I’ll let you know how Sucre fares. Then watch for the little contest of YUMMINESS.
Are you kidding? Lemme just say that Ms. Cheevious is all about the freebies lately, kiddos.
When it seems that all people can talk about is “doom and gloom” incessantly, at some point ya’ gotta cry “UNCLE!” and run – don’t walk – for the nearest free thing that crosses your path!
I’m not kidding folks – at least not about the plethora of free stuff out there. In this day and age, with taxes climbing, salaries stalled or disappearing, and people tightening their purse strings to the point of asphyxiation, any leg up is a welcome friend.
So, I’ve provided a list of some places that have dished out the free stuff recently. Why, you ask? Perhaps you are thinking, “WHY MS. Cheevious? Why must you TAUNT us with the freebies that cross your path? These things do not happen in (insert your city/town here)!” Well, I don’t buy it (ha ha – no kidding). You too can generate and be aware of FREE STUFF in your own backyard. But you gotta look for it and use a little ingenuity. You also have to be willing to GET OUT THERE. This, for some of you, is no small task. I know, I know. Sometimes it’s just easier to stay home and watch television and get comfortable. The idea of getting somewhat dressed up to get out there and indulge in a few free things at times can be a bit exhausting! Well, boo hoo hoo. Cry me a river. If you want the free stuff, you have to put in a little effort people! So here you go:
Also – Galleries and museums often provide free wine, champagne and hors d’oeuvres when they open a new exhibition or promote a new artist. Get on their list for their upcoming events! I’ve even attended a red carpet movie screening at a nearby gallery where they had exquisite appetizers and desserts as well as an open bar.
So, there you have it people. Freebies galore. Go get ’em!
And, as you may have surmised, from my lack of postings lately, my blog has become a struggle to get out lately. I promise to be more timely and fastidious from now on. Stay tuned next time for more on the delightful, delectable, celebrity-filled happenings in sunny, beautiful California – through my eyes, of course!
Have an incredibly FREE week everyone!
Love you people! Mmmmmmmppphhhhuuuuhhh!
