Now no more delays, here’s your weekend reading.

Budgets are Sexy – Would You Take A 10% Paycut to Get All Fridays Off? – This article definitely resonated with me. I know lots of people that work 50+ hours a week. That’s for the birds.

Disclaimer: I’m not advocating not working hard, just not working so much you forget the important things.

Len Penzo Dot Com – Yet Another Reason Why I Hate Buying Tickets from Ticketmaster. –  Did you miss this gem from my buddy Len? Just when you thought Ticketmaster couldn’t get any worse, they go and do this. I say, do everything you can to avoid giving them business in the future.
