Report: Day 69 

Yesterday was downsizing day. The idea behind the day is that corporate fat cats have the right idea and a great way to save money is to reduce the number of people who provide services to you and in that way cut expenses.

So I made a list of services I use that I figured I could do without if I had to.

Internet provider
Public transportation
The New York Times
Neighborhood deli

Benrick suggested things like fire your pets. Not only do you save money on food for them, but you can eat them and stretch your grocery budget. You'll notice pets are not on the list.

I considered the list and finally decided to fire HBO. I enjoy having HBO, but I use it so infrequently, especially now that I'm employed again, so I'm kissing it good bye. I contacted the cable company yesterday at 9 p.m. to inform them of my decision.

Today I will take the Benrick test to determine whether I'm a psychopath. The wagering is now open.
