PterosaurusThank you Alex Berg for this entertaining post!

Perhaps you want to squeeze a few extra pennies out of your paycheck to stow away for a rainy day? Well, look no further, friend- Manny the Frugal Pterosaur‘s got a snaggletoothed maw full of moneysaving tips to help you get the most bang for your buck!

  • To avoid late fees on your credit card bills, try to always pay 7-10 days in advance. If you want to save on postage as well, fly the bill to your credit card company yourself. That way, you avoid late fees and get a free vacation!
  • Utilities can be expensive. Try to save on heating costs by wrapping your wings around yourself to trap in body heat. Too hot? Spread your wings and watch the heat rapidly dissipate thanks to the intricate network of veins crisscrossing your thin, membranous wings!

That’s all for now, everybody! Remember- money isn’t free, but my advice is! This is Manny, the Frugal Pterosaur, signing off!

See These Movies Before Heading Off to College!

Well, who better to ask about college, and college-themed movies, than Dr Amy Sack of Admissions Accomplished? That was a rhetorical question. Amy is an expert on all things college-related. Here’s the list that Amy came up with:

1. American Pie 2 (2001) The motley group  from the first “American Pie”  reunite after their first year in college. The friends decide to hold the biggest beach party ever…hilarity ensues.

Animal House 2. Revenge of the Nerds (1984) The lovable nerds, Gilbert and Lewis, begin their first year at Adams College where they’re endlessly taunted by a group of jocks. The jocks burn down their house, forcing the freshman out of their dorms. The nerds create their own fraternity and the tables turn.

3. Animal House (1978) – John Belushi heads up the hijinks in this iconic movie that mocks the college experiences so perfectly that the US Library of congress deemed it ‘culturally significan’ and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. Really! Watch it! Bonus: Original score by Elmer Bernstein. Really.

4. Back to School (1986) – Rodney Dangerfield plays Thornton Melon, a mega rich Unknownretail magnate who decides to drop everything and go to college with his son. Much hilarity ensues, of course.

5. National Lampoon’s Van Wilder (2002) – Van Wilder is an outgoing, popular student who has been at Coolidge College for 7 years and hasn’t made an attempt to graduate for the last 6 semesters. A misconstrued romantic entanglement leads to a string of super gross pranks, earning it an 18% on Rotten Tomatoes but a huge cult following of teenage boys..

Ready to be inspired? Are your parents in the room? Here’s a few more of Amy’s favorite films:

images1. Rudy (1993) – Rudy is the true story of a young man who grew up in a steel mill town where most people end up staying for life. Despite a lackluster academic career, little money and meager physical talents, Rudy sets his sights on playing football for Notre Dame. Get the box of Kleenex out!

2. Good Will Hunting (1997) – How convenient! Will Hunting, a mathematical savant, is a night time custodian at M.I.T. To break up the tedium of mopping floors he solves the  complicated equations he finds scribbled on the blackboards. His genius does not go unnoticed in this touching Oscar- winning film. Living with a College RoommateMatt Damon and Ben Affleck won an Oscar for writing the script!

3. Dead Poet’s Society (1989) –An elite prep school filled with filled with driven students have their eyes opened to life by an eccentric poetry professor played by Robin Williams. I’m assuming they all ended well-prepped for college and life.

4. The Great Debaters (2007) – A drama based on the true story of Melvin B. Tolson, a professor at Wiley College Texas. Wiley’s 1935 debate team ends up challenging Harvard in the national championship. This movie won a Golden Globe Award for Best Picture (drama). “The Great Debaters” star, Denzel Washington, donated $1,000,000. To Wiley College to reestablish it’s debate team.

5. Mona Lisa Smile (2003)- Katherine Watson is a free-spirited graduate of UCLA who accepts a teaching post at Wellesley College. It’s 1953 and the new professor Watson ruffles many conservative feathers when she asks her students to question traditional values. Julia Roberts got a record 25 million dollars for this role! Wow!

Now back to work! It’s almost time to go off to college!
