10 Things on Tuesday - Volume 34

1. My beloved Orlando City Soccer's VERY FIRST official major league game was this weekend! They ended up in a 1-1 tie with the (also new) NYCFC. Wish I could have been there in person! It wasn't the most exciting of games (other than that whole thing where New York's goalie ended up bleeding from the head twice, but just kept playing) possibly because the two new teams (both with imported superstars) were really evenly matched but finding their feet as a team, but it still would have been awesome to be there for the inaugural game!

2. If you've been wanting to try Stitch Fix but you're a little wary about the $20 styling fee, you're going to looooove this! They have a promo going on this month where new customers get their first month with NO styling fee! That means you only pay for what you choose to keep - nothing to lose! I'd obviously love if you use my affiliate link to sign up - just enter the code RISKFREEMARCH to waive the fee! (My next Fix is scheduled to arrive 3/17, so expect another review soon!)

3. Scientists have designed music specifically for cats. My cats seemed sort of interested in listening to it. I'd be curious to hear how yours react!

4. I went car shopping this Saturday, but I am still car-less. I liked the 1st one that I test drove, but I'm not 100% on it yet. 2nd one just didn't excite me much. Decided while driving the 3rd one that I'd probably take it, only to get back to the dealership and found out someone had just put a deposit on it. Arrgh! I've been going back and forth all day about what my next move will be. My plan was to go rent a car tomorrow and spend a day or two checking out cars, but the car rental place in Branson won't do one way rentals right now, so if I find something I like down in Bentonville or Fayetteville, AR (which seem to have the best prices for pretty much everything), I'd have no way to get both my new car and the rental back up here. I'm about 50/50 right now between just buying the first one I drove, or booking the $120 flight that I found down to Orlando next week and car shopping there, where I would have my friends to drive me around and WAY more to choose from. Of course, that would mean sunshine and fun and good times (YAY!) but also a 1000+ mile drive back home after. (Boooo.) What's a girl to do?

5. Speaking of cars, I found pics of my car online at a salvage auction site. I didn't get a very good look at it after the accident - it was getting dark and I was basically getting back and forth between the car, ambulance, police car and tow truck as quickly as possible since we were in the very snowy fast lane of a major interstate. I'd say the 2nd pic here totally explains why the cop said "Yeeeah, I don't think it's going to..." when I said I couldn't get my car to move:

6. This post was all set to actually go up on Tuesday like it was supposed to, but I haven't slept more than 3 hours a night since Thursday, so I somehow managed to fall asleep watching All In with Chris Hayes, so I hope I at least had really great dreams about him during the 5 hours of sleep that followed. (Although since I fell asleep with msnbc on, I probably dreamed about Hillary emailing me about yoga. Which would be pretty awesome, tbh.)

7. I get a lot of Amazon gift codes from things like surveys, Crowdtap, Swagbucks, and so on, and I've been saving them up for a new camera for over a year now. I'm *finally* less than $20 away from being able to order my Nikon d3200! The temptation to just pay normal money for that last little bit is HUGE, but I came this far on gc's, might as well ride it out! Should be able to order it within a few days though - SQUEE!

8. Swagbucks added a new section on their survey page where you can earn points answering profile questions. Somehow, I was asked this:

Um, that's kind of a personal question, you guys. 

9. Thoughts at 4::35 am : Maybe I should give up car shopping and just spend like 12 hours a day entering sweepstakes online where the prize is a car instead. Seems like about equal chances of success at this point.

10. I handed out approximately fifty billion buttons during my time as a Disney concierge, so this delights me way more than it should:

"And they lived happily ever after."

What's up in your world this week?
