It’s kind of amazing when you realize that your favorite album when you were a single, unmarried senior in college (when it came out) is still your favorite album when you’re pushing thirty with a wife and a child – it just speaks to you in a completely different way. That would be Aimee Mann’s Bachelor No. 2, which I’m sitting here listening to once again – and singing along with every single word. You can download it for free (and it’s legally yours) from emusic if you sign up for a trial. Click that link for the album; you can jump to emusic and listen to samples of each of the songs.
Now that you have a nice soundtrack for the day, here are some personal finance posts.
