Happy Birthday, Broke-Ass Mom

What Does a Broke-Ass Kid Want for the Holidays?

I thought I’d do a two-parter starting this week:  One part “What does a Broke-Ass kid want?” and one part “What does a Broke-Ass Mom want?”  You know what’s so great about kids?  Up until a certain age (I’ve yet to discover at what age this changes) kids love the

Join SF SantaCon this Saturday

It seems Christmas comes earlier every year. This Saturday, December 10th, hundreds, maybe even thousand of Santas will be taking over the streets of San Francisco for the SF SantaCon. Imagine the hilly streets flooded red, as all of these Santas stumble around screaming, “Ho, ho, ho.” Many of them
