You're Very Sparkly...

I'm off to chase my American Dream! Going house hunting today! Today is the first day of what I hope to be several fun-filled days of finding our new and permanent abode. And oh yeah, there's the whole Happy Birthday, America thing going on, too.

Not to disappoint, here are a few freebies for you die-hard freebie chasers!


After an extended absence, YTIC is back with more Washington DC area screenings.
Requires free registration.

Monday, July 7

7:00 pm
Washington, DC
A science professor's untraditional hypotheses have made him the laughing stock of the academic community. But on an expedition in Iceland, he and his nephew stumble upon Jules Verne's original manuscript for his book "Journey to the Center of the Earth." They discover that he actually took the trip himself, and using the manuscript as a map, they follow his course on a thrilling journey deep beneath the Earth's surface, where they travel through never-before-seen worlds and encounter a variety of unusual creatures.

Description: Wednesday, July 16

8:30 pm
Washington, DC
With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
The films all-star cast includes Heath Ledger as arch-villain The Joker; Aaron Eckhart as District Attorney Harvey Dent; Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel Dawes; Gary Oldman as Lieutenant Jim Gordon; Oscar winner Michael Caine as Alfred; Oscar winner Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox; and Christian Bale as The Batman. This will be a unique screening event filled with prizes, posters, and much more.
Winners must wear black to the screening.

Rogue Apron (Atlanta)

For some, ambient dining means late-hour binging and a neurological disorder. You deserve better than that.
You won’t sleep at RogueApron dinner parties, roving chowdowns fashioned after the likes of Ghetto Gourmet and the underground London dinner party circuit.
Founders Lady Rogue and Lord Apron (we don’t even know their real names yet) organize events around a certain theme — BBQ, sushi rolling lessons, corned beef, coconuts — and go out of their way to mix and match groups for maximum chitchat.
Sign up for updates online or via Facebook and await details on date, theme, and location. Suggested donations are just that: If you’re low on dough, volunteer your services as a dishwasher, greeter, or party host.
So long as you bring something to the table.

Cheat Neutral
Cheating on your mate can wreak horrific blight on the world -- despondence radiates, ravaging entire communities, and trust (a non-renewable resource) plummets permanently. But now, there's a way to mitigate your net cheating impact without altering your lifestyle: CheatNeutral.
British innovator CN's new program lets anyone become a more responsible philanderer by purchasing Offset Certificates, which go to fund cheat-counteracting "monogamy projects" -- or what used to be called "just giving up".
CN recommends you first attempt to reduce your own cheating, but when you can't stop boning everything under 80, you can buy redemption and harmony for about $5 per certif. CN'll channel these funds to non-cheaters -- those who pledge to remain monogamous/celibate, or "just plain single people" (who can't cheat, because nobody loves them enough to care) -- and both you and your partner can start serially scamming on each other again, this time blissfully free of carving-knife attacks, because the certificates make it cool.
If you're firmly entrenched as a non-cheater, or would be willing to accept small monetary payments to become one, sign up as a "project". Cash from Offset Certificates'll be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis -- if you're chosen, just pray that CN quickly launches their next endeavor, LieNeutral.
