It was a generous gift except it was all for Facebook so that I wouldn’t “have to worry about paying for Facebook during college.” -Eric My mom just beat me $113,550 to $4,200 in the Wheel of Fortune game for the Wii. Yet for some reason I have to point her controller for her because she can’t point it straight. I’m very confused. -A. H.

2/19 – 3/20

Weekly Overview (Week starting on February 21) The heck with the status quo as the week begins -you’ve got a bigger, better idea, and it’s time to enact it. If money’s involved, however, make sure you’re not taking too big of a risk. Around Wednesday and Thursday, be watchful and dig around a little. You can find out something now that’ll really come in handy, whether it’s work-related or interpersonal. Speaking of work, take time off from Friday afternoon through the weekend -- or at least try to stay away from your boss. Meanwhile, when it comes to relationships, consider carefully how the things you say come across.

Thinking LOUD Out Brain Songs It seems I have a kind of…well, affliction. My brain contains a small continuous reel tape that makes it possible for me to hear a song, then replay one or two measures of that song over and over in my head until I hear another song catchy enough to take its place. Two years ago, I had Burl Ives singing Have a Holly Jolly Christmas for three solid weeks — and really, I thought I’d go quite mad. But then Auld Lang Syne took over on New Year’s Eve, followed by a dreadful fifties song called If I Knew You Was Comin’ I’d Have Baked a Cake shortly thereafter — neither of which was great but both of which were a relief from Burl and his jolly holly. The good news is that there is an upside to this problem. I don’t need an iPod. I don’t even need a radio. I am my own irritating amusement. Saves me a fortune in batteries!
