Hopefully you remember that tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. That’s step one. Now we’ll get into the rest of the steps it takes to half-ass it tomorrow but not make it SUPER obvious.
Here are the results from a survey by Groupon that figured out the bare minimum amount of effort you need to put in to make it look like you tried on Valentine’s Day.
1. If you’re a man, spend $179 on gifts and dinner. If you’re a woman, spend $74.
2. Write at least FOUR sentences in a card.
3. Even if you’re planning a night out, make sure to buy SOME gift, even a small one. 26% of women and 19% of men would be disappointed if they didn’t get anything.
4. And make sure to plan some activity, even if it’s just dinner at home. 71% of people say it’s more important that you planned something than what it is specifically.
Want to make over $100,000-a-year playing with Legos? You actually might be able to pull it off . . . but you’ll have to hustle and probably do a LOT of lying on your resume.
The University of Cambridge in England is looking for a “Professor of Lego” to study Legos, figure out ways to incorporate them into education, and analyze the role of Legos and other toys in kids’ lives worldwide.
But there are two catches. One, the deadline to apply is tomorrow. And two, they’re looking for someone with an, quote, “outstanding research record of international stature and vision, leadership, experience, and enthusiasm.”
Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday . . . 2:00 A.M to be exact.
Which means we lose an hour of sleep Saturday night.
Here are five tips to help you deal with the transition.
- Cut out caffeine. Make sure you don’t have any caffeine at least six hours before bed. It’s a good rule of thumb in general, but especially important this weekend.
- No alcohol either. Even just one drink can disturb your sleep. So skip the alcohol tomorrow night if you can.
- Eat light. Don’t eat anything for at least two or three hours before you plan to go to bed. Otherwise it can interfere with the quality of your sleep.
- Make your bed a place you want to sleep in. Meaning, fresh clean sheets . . . and no phones or iPads.
- Go to bed earlier. To minimize the impact of the time change, make a few gradual adjustments rather than one big one.
Go to bed 15 to 30 minutes earlier than usual TONIGHT, and again tomorrow.
You should be fully adjusted by Monday.

The Powerball drawing is tonight at 10:59 P.M. Eastern. The prize is now up to $1.5 BILLION . . . and it’ll probably jump even higher over the course of the day. That means the LUMP sum should also cross the $1 billion mark, which is crazy.
So what do you do if you win? I mean . . . uh . . . WHEN you win. Here are six pieces of advice from MARK CUBAN. After all, he became a billionaire the old fashioned way. You know . . . by tricking the suckers at Yahoo into giving him a fortune.
- Hire a tax attorney first.
- Don’t take the lump sum, so you don’t blow it all.
- If you weren’t happy yesterday, winning won’t make you happy tomorrow.
- But if you WERE happy yesterday, winning will make you VERY happy tomorrow. You’ll enjoy a life where you don’t have to worry about bills.
- Tell all of your friends and family NO when they ask for money. No exceptions. If you help someone, it should be someone you’re close enough to that you knew about their financial issues BEFORE you won. And no one needs $1 million for anything.
- Winning the lottery doesn’t make you a smart investor, so don’t make investments. Just put the money in the bank and live comfortably forever.
