Leslie's Omnibus


Three swiped from Christine because they amused me:

You Are 56% Pure

You're usually the typical girl or guy next door...

But you also have a secret naughty side!

Your Love Number is 6

Who you fall in love with is all about who you trust.

Loyalty is important to you, and you want the most faithful of lovers.

In return, you never let your heart or eyes wander.

Open and honest, your relationships tend to be free of secrets.

Your Power Bird is an Owl

You are beyond wise. You are so smart, you're almost prophetic.

Your inner voice always speaks the truth, and you take the time to listen to it.

You are good at seeing who people are... including the darkness of others. As a result, you tend to have a rather dark - yet realistic - outlook on life.


This sounds like a wonderful program. I've read of similar programs in men's prisons. The recidivisim rates are incredible, and they're contributing in a very positive way to the community.

More, please!

Illinois bits and bobs:
  • It's no fun hearing our fair state that is one of only eight that allows this. It's a barbaric practice that needs to end right now.
  • Here's an interesting proposition that would force Illinois' Electoral College to follow the popular vote. I'm guessing downstaters won't like it, but I think it has a lot of merit. Discuss among yourselves in the comments, please!
  • I kid you not, it's been bitterly cold here. Rumor has it we'll be back in the 60's and 70's by next week. Is it any wonder that everyone around me has been sick?
  • Not only has it been cold as hell, but it's been DARK, too! Yuck.

Quote of the Day:
Imagine: various staid, elderly academics making like Poo Rocketeers, flying around like they had shit-powered jetpacks.
I just love a woman who can crap-blog with the big dogs!

What are you going to believe? This? Or this?

This cool, brand new blog mixes pop culture with lessons in personal finance. Check it out.

I'm doomed to failure. What's a guy or gal to do? (And keep that in mind if you're feeding your child diet soda or any sweets made with Splenda.)
