Leslie's Omnibus


Desert Cat linked to an article that stood my hair on end:

I'll cash those accounts out, take the tax hit, and stuff every single dime under my mattress before this happens to MY money.

Bend over and grab your ankles. The redistribution of wealth is just beginning.

It's going to be a LONG four years.

Walrilla strikes again.

(I'm thinkin' we might want to be gifting him with a bukkit of his own next time the BlownStar Blodgers get together. We can fill it with Shiner Bock, even.)

BlogHer '09 In Real Life

Much as I love my Boys in Blog, I'm thinking I just may have to attend BlogHer 2009, as I missed the last one held in my own back yard.
