Never have I seen such abuse of the "Take A Penny, Leave A Penny" Tray.

It appears that the nearest Kwik-E Mart is in Seattle but I just might have to get up there and check it out.
Incredibly clever marketing stunt.

That's a human being for you, spend most of their lives running in circles for a series of nothing.

Note to self-

Blogger comment moderation is completely worthless.

That and I absolutely hate the auto-formatting that puts miles between paragraphs. Stupid, stupid Blogger.

No, no and no!

The correct headline:

Bush Pardons Himself; Obstructs Justice!

What's not to like about Robin Hood? I'll steal from the rich and give to a poor bear- me. Stay here, Friar Boo-Boo.

Thanks to Swinebread's tag I have to reveal 8 random facts about myself. I'm not sure what would happen if I don't (hole in the time space continuum? Bush gets third term?) but the consequences are just too unfathomable for me not to take up the challenge.

1) I like Westerns. This is a horrible secret I've only recently come to terms with.

2) My college thesis was on the book What is Philosophy? by Jose Ortega y Gasset.

3) I'm a Duck so it's to my shame that I have Beaver blood running through me and occasionally find myself rooting for their teams.

4) I cheated at Dungeons and Dragons as a kid. I never really "played up" my 30th level bard. Sorry Western Oregon Wargamers.

5) I've volunteered on several political campaigns but it's been years since I have had the time.

6) I once killed a bear with my bare hands. I pummeled him to death while his buddy in the hat and tie made off with my pic-i-nic basket.

7) I've been seriously addicted to coffee since I was eighteen and working in a warehouse.

8) The first girl I ever kissed was from Canada. Nobody believed that story.

Now I tag Overdroid. I know he won't respond because as Swiney mentioned he hates these things but I think it'd just give him an excuse to update his site.
