Leslie's Omnibus


I'm still in a half cranky/half apathetic mood. Feh. But I do have a couple of thoughts...

For my gal pals who don't think they can afford BlogHer, go here, and sign up for their contest. You can't win if you don't enter.

Nice to have it confirmed:
Study ranks Illinois among worst for personal freedom.
Really, it's Chicago that makes it worse. Just ask Joe Moore, who now is pushing for a mandatory spay/neuter law for dogs and cats over six months of age in Chicago. This is the same guy who brought us the short-lived foie gras ban and the whole trans fat kerfuffle.

Our police force is understaffed and underpaid. The city is running out of money, and our streets are one pot-holed mess due to the crappy weather we've had this winter.

Good to see ol' Joe's got his priorities in order when it comes to taking care of Chicago.

I bought this for my Great Niece and it was a HUGE hit. Sinfully soft, cuddly and washable -- the perfect toy for a little girl.

Jay inspires a few Blogthings:

You Are the Communicator

You are a collector and facilitator of knowledge. You love storytelling and teaching.

You light up when you're around other people, and you especially light up in front of a crowd.

You are a charismatic person who's genuinely a joy to be with. You remind others to have fun.

You love life, and you're wake up grateful for every new day. This attitude makes the people around you love life as well.

... and...

You Are the Third Eye Chakra

You are insightful and spiritual. You trust your intuition.

You are deeply philosophical. You spend a lot of time thinking and theorizing.

You are wise beyond your years. People turn to you for direction and hope.

You are a clear thinker. You often know what you want to do and how you're going to do it.


52 days, 52 mistakes. The good news just keeps on rolling in.

And if your panties aren't already in a bunch, this ought to do it:
So, You THINK The FDIC Has Your Deposit Insured

Whoopsy! Turns out those bozos in Congress let banks get away without paying into the insurance fund.
Great. Just freaking great.
President Obama and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner received failing grades for their efforts to revive the economy from participants in the latest Wall Street Journal forecasting survey.
No? Really???

I feel a little jig coming on...

Since I've started driving again, I have noticed that the streets are awful! I agree that something should be done about that, but I also think that unless you're a certified (or whatever qualification is needed) breeder, spaying and neutering should be mandatory.
