Nubbins

If you don't listen to This American Life on NPR, OR if you may have missed a few in the last couple of months, you MUST HEAR "Babies Buying Babies" from January 18. It's free. Listen now. Thank me later.

who needs a yard?

So, now even us loft dwellers can compost! How cool is that?

Your Love is Like Bad Medicine

For the naughtier cards that I couldn't post on a blog that my mother reads, click here.

I take voting very seriously. It's my vote and no one else's. I take it seriously during years when it doesn't really "matter" and I know it won't change the outcome of an election, and I take it seriously during more exciting years like this one when voting in the primary on March 4th does matter. I vote as often as I can, in nationwide elections, state elections, and city elections. I watch the debates, read the articles, and do my research. And due to my line of work, I know what's going on, not just in Texas, but in dozens of other cities (NY, LA, San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Miami, Columbus...the list goes on).

My vote is a very personal decision that I don't take lightly. Therefor, it doesn't just annoy me, it offends me when people send me emails actually telling me who to vote for. As if I am so casual with my vote, so uneducated in my decision, so complacent and unquestioning, that I would vote for a candidate simply because someone tells me to.

So next time you decide to send out a mass email about who you want me to vote for, remove my name before clicking the "send" button. I am not your naïve voting pawn. Besides, if you knew me at all, you'd know that telling me what to do pretty much assures that I won't do it.

maybe Home Depot has a specialty section

I had an order today asking for a graphic with a "judge's malet."

First of all, it's "mallet" not "malet."

Second of all it's a gavel, not a mallet.

on the fence

Not sure who to vote for in the Texas primary on March 4?

Why not answer 36 questions and let a website tell you which candidate has views closest to yours.

That way you don't have to watch any pesky debates, read any boring articles, or think for yourself about who you want to lead this country and get us out of this mess.
