Want Some Free Food?

If you're trying to save money, today there are a couple of deals going on where you can get some free food.

IHOP National Pancake Day
Between 7AM and 10PM you can get a stack of three pancakes for free. The only string attached: they ask you make a donation to Children's Miracle Network

Two Free Tacos
Between 12AM and 11:59PM Jack In The Box is giving away two free tacos to support Jack and his broken head. You must print out the coupon to get the tacos, but that's all you need.

These two deals are only going on today, so you've got to move if you want your free food.

Million Subs Giveaway
Quznos is giving away a free sub sandwich if you give them your contact information. Once you have signed up, you can go back and opt out, or you can also sign up to win subs for a year.

Stephen King Blasts "Twilight"

Since I have yet to post anything vampire related, and the backlash was so great when others did, I'll put my neck on the line (pun intended) and throw out this article that I found, where Stephen King compares J.K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer's writing. His comments for Meyer are less than complimentary.

Stephen King Says Meyer Isn't Very Good

Stephen King said, “Both Rowling and Meyer, they’re speaking directly to young people… The real difference is that Jo Rowling is a terrific writer and Stephenie Meyer can’t write worth a darn. She’s not very good.”
Since I am on the subject of vampires, I am reading The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, and so far I think it is actually pretty good. Now on with the random drive by comments.
