Would you shave your head for $500?

Can I just say how obsessed I am with all these deal-of-the-day websites? You can literally get 40-90% off the best things your city has to offer. At first I was super skeptical. I mean me - Kelly Kapoor - use COUPONS?? Ew! But we're not talking about your grandma's Pennysaver here. This is way classier. It's all about getting bargains on local services that will totally broaden your horizons, I swear to Gucci.
For instance ever since I saw Carrie take a flying trapeze class in season 6 of Sex and the City, I've always wanted to try it. But when it comes down to it, we all know I'm gonna need to spend the fifty bucks on a new outfit or a mani/pedi instead. That is until an electronic coupon for trapeze popped into my inbox, offering a session for more than HALF OFF. Took it, loved it, going again tomorrow. And omg, this afternoon I purchased what might be my most fave coupon ever - I paid $29 for $100 worth of having my own paparazzi!! For two hours they're going to trail me, scream out my name and ask for pictures. If that's not a deal, I don't know what is :)

As I'm new to this "city," I thought I'd ask the masses what in God's name there is to do around here? I went to the local ski resort, only to find that the slopes barely reach over 1,000 feet. Yet bizarrely enough, everyone seemed to be having a good time. It was almost as if they had no cognizance of the glorious mountains in Austria with vertical drops of more than 4,000 feet, and the most immaculate snow you've ever laid your Rossignols in! I laughed so hard I made myself sick and went home immediately.
There was a smelly old man at the market who advised I check out the Steamtown National Historic site. Do I look like the type of person who wants to learn about decaying locomotives?? Absolutely not! I'm a fit bird in the prime of my life looking to get my own personal locomotive going. Seriously, nothing around here seems to take the biscuit, aside from the martinis at the topless club (which are smashing). Please send all recommendations my way. Also - would anyone be opposed to me wearing a crown in the office?

Classically handsome, blue-eyed trendsetter looking for a très chic Chloë Sevigny lookalike. We met in line while waiting for the iPad 3. I had a really good time talking to you about photography. I wanted to ask you out, but I was so intimidated by your knowledge of French New Wave cinema, I didn't have the guts. But I've been thinking about you nonstop. Maybe we can get a drink sometime, or go to a Matt & Kim concert together? Email me a picture at wuphf.com
(or just tell me the colors of your messenger bag) so I know that it's you. And to be clear, I'm not looking for anything serious.

Hello everyone. Bob and I are taking a trip to Myrtle this Easter. We really love it down there - we just can't get enough of the casino boats and the Jimmy Buffett eateries. Anyway, we need someone to watch Bob's schnauzer while we're gone. He's a very sweet dog, but he has epilepsy, cataracts and contact dermatitis, and we'd prefer someone we trust to stay in our home with him rather than drop him at a shabby kennel that may not tend to all of his needs. Is anybody interested? Trust me, we'd make it very worth your while. Does a week supply of soft baked pretzels and access to our waterbed mean anything? Let me know!
