I Was Stodgy Before Stody Was Sexy

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Oh yeah, baby! This country is finally coming around to my way of thinking?

That's right, being stodgy is sexy!

Okay, okay, I know you're asking what is Stodgy. Well, it's an adjective meaning heavy, dull, uninteresting; tediously commonplace; boring.

But in these conservative times where those itty bitty Smart cars are taking the place of the giant SUVs, it could mean, simply, cool.

As America struggles to uphold the last few hands in our house of cards, people are finally starting to realize that less is more, boring is better, and being Conservative is cool.

As a matter of fact, the new Stodgy fad is so hip, it's getting it's own documentary web series!

Stodgy Is Sexy is a series of short documentary portraits, profiling a group of individuals who embody the Stodgy/Sexy movement; people from across a range of fields and disciplines who have achieved success, sometimes spectacularly, through adherence to traditional ideals of simplicity, diligence, conservatism, and basic common sense.

I've been stodgy long before being stodgy was cool.  For years, I've been extreme couponing (even before there was an official term for it), opting to be a Do-It-Yourselfer over contractors, and using a system of bartering.  Essentially, our code focuses on living on less than we make - and not doing without in the process.

My great-grandfather used to say, "Take care of your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves."  We live by that literally and figuratively as one of our favorite savings methods is to use nothing but paper money and dump our metal change into a jar each night.  In a year's time, it's amazing how much that change adds up - those pennies magically turn into dollars!

I'm thrilled to see that American is getting on board and learning that being a Stodge is the only way to live.  And now that we've been declared sexy, I'm wondering when we'll get t-shirts that say, "I ♥ Stodges."  You know, like they have for the nerds.

Saturday, May 7, 2011

When I was a kid, I remember hearing the children who wore glasses being called "four eyes."

My how things have changed! (Thank goodness for that, right?)

Today glasses are considered a very chic accessory. Available in a multitude of colors, designs, and frame shapes, eyeglasses can add the perfect touch to an outfit to give you a very contemporary look.

And Zenni Optical is one of the best places to shop for your prescription eyeglasses. With prices beginning at only $6.95, there's no reason not to shop with them. Plus there shipping is only $4!

That's right, only $4!

You're probably wondering what the catch is, right? There's not one! By eliminating the expenses of a walk-in brick and mortar store, cutting out the middleman by selling direct from the factory, and low advertising costs thanks to their many customer recommendations, Zenni Optical can pass the savings on direct to their customers while still selling a high quality line of stylish glasses.

The next time you're shopping for eyewear, check out Zenni Optical before you drop hundreds with the "convenient" counter out front.  A little extra time could mean a lot of extra cash in your pocket.
