I'm too old for this #$%^...
Seriously, I think after age 28 you shouldn't be required to do placement testing to get into College. I think after 2 kids and being married for 5 years I should get a free pass for life experience.

I went down to school yesterday, with my friend Heather, to get registered for classes and tie up some loose ends for my financial aid. Hit the FA offices first and got some good news, 3/4 of my tuition will be paid for by GRANTS!! GG for not working a lot last year T. I also found out I qualified for "work study" programs. When I heard this I had envisioned a really cool job doing something I liked on a flexible schedule, I was wrong. Unless you find working for $5.15/hr appealing.

Next we headed down to the academic counselors offices. I had called ahead of time to try and schedule an appointment and was told I didn't need one. So, we signed up on the list only to find out I DID need one to talk to the right counselor. But they were kind enough to let me talk some things out with a counselor not in the branch of study I will be going in. She was kind enough to tell me my GPA was 0.00 because I had attended a quarter at Sinclair and withdrawn, only to have the withdraw NOT go thru and gave me a transcript that says "F F F F"=0.00. But I can have that forgiven after my first quarter back.

Oh, and by they way, none of your college credits count cause it's been over 5 years, except English, but we don't have your OSU transcripts on file so you have to get those.

So guess what? Even though I placed in math 050 after taking my ACT and SAT 12 years ago, I have to do it again. It's way more humiliating at 29 than at 17.

Oh, and another thing, you have to come back and spend THREE HOURS taking placement tests. And I had better study and place in math 101 or I'll have to add 4 math classes to earn my degree.

So I "get" to take a practice exam. Here is the first question on the AlgebraI part:

If Lynn can type a page in p minutes, what piece of the page can she do in 5 minutes?
5/p
p - 5
p + 5
p/5
1- p + 5

And question 2...

If Sally can paint a house in 4 hours, and John can paint the same house in 6 hour, how long will it take for both of them to paint the house together?
2 hours and 24 minutes
3 hours and 12 minutes
3 hours and 44 minutes
4 hours and 10 minutes
4 hours and 33 minutes

And my favorite...

Solve the following equation for A : 2A/3 = 8 + 4A
-2.4
2.4
1.3
-1.3
0

Ok, so you might look at these and think "wow! you're lucky, that's so easy", and if you do, all I can say is "STFU, GFY".

Then onto Algebra II

Mary is reviewing her algebra quiz. She has determined that one of her solutions is incorrect. Which one is it?
2x + 5 (x-1) = 9 x = 2
p - 3(p-5) = 10 p = 2.5
4 y + 3 y = 28 y = 4
5 w + 6 w – 3w = 64 w = 8
t – 2t – 3t = 32 t = 8

HUH?! Let's revise the question to - Teresa is reviewing her algebra quiz. She has determined all of her solutions are incorrect. What's the over/under on her placing in math 101?

Then you know your entire life has gone to hell when you have to ask a poker friend for help. A poker friend with the affectionate nicknames of "Dimmdoodle, dimmwad, dimmifieddonk etc etc" for help, and you find out HE'S UM GENIUS! And then he had to leave and go to dinner with his roomate, so I quit the practice test on this question:

If Steven can mix 20 drinks in 5 minutes, Sue can mix 20 drinks in 10 minutes, and Jack can mix 20 drinks in 15 minutes, how much time will it take all 3 of them working together to mix the 20 drinks?
2 minutes and 44 seconds
2 minutes and 58 seconds
3 minutes and 10 seconds
3 minutes and 26 seconds
4 minutes and 15 seconds


I'm so screwed. If you don't get any responses from me in a week, other than asking how to find X, don't take it personal. I gotta take this placement test next Monday at 12noon.

in a nutshell...
For those of you annoyed by my PayPerPosting, here is a little consolation

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Consolation for you or for me? I'm not sure, but I do like it. So, just suck it up and be happy for me... mkay?

And to think it all started with the handy dandy "next blog" button when I came across a funny blog with a PayPerPost in it. Then came the warnings from friends, "It's a scam!". But I am happy to say I've recieved all my money in a timely fashion!

The only bad thing is the guilt involved. That's right, sometimes I feel guilty when I DON'T PayPerPost in a few days cause I know my withdrawal from paypal in 30 days from my dry spell won't be as big as previous weeks.

But then I'm good at finding ridiculous ways to feel guilty.

precision...
I have the touch I tell ya.

My baby harper started talking, well baby talking. Her parents had tried and tried to get it on film, and it turns out Harper is camera shy. But nothing a little auntie T tricking can't fix.

Took a bit to get the camera stable, but it was worth it! Oh, and ignore my baby talk too.... ok go ahead and make fun of me, but I did what was necessary!!

your bedroom is fugly...
And I think you need a home makeover. I know I do.

Ever wonder how people get picked for the Extreme Home Makeover show? Well it is typically a process decided by producers of the show. But now you can get an home makeover by entering a sweepstakes!


I would love for some hot guy to come tear my house down and build me a new one in a week. So, I entered the giveaway. It's a longshot, but so is going all in with AA.

I bet I'd finally have two bathrooms, and my house would have storage, it would be clean for like a day, all the walls would be painted and rooms decorated. And in the meantime while they worked on my house I'd have em send me to Vegas for a week and I'd come home a millionaire only to tick off the whole world that some undeserving poker degnerate got a home makeover.

Oh to dream.

i'll be in my office...
I think when you become a mother you should be given a handbook. Included in the handbook should be a warning:

You will never have any privacy again, ever, in your existence of servitude, ever.

Since my kids are getting older, the bathroom interuptions have become more annoying. When they are little you leave the door open on purpose, so you can hear if anything falls on their head, or they get electricuted etc etc. But as they get older, you begin to regain your pride and close the door, trusting they can go five minutes with out killing themselves.

But alas, the second that door closes a switch goes off in a child's brain to find something, SOMETHING I have to tell Mom RIGHT NOW!

I hear the pitter patter of feet down the hallway, the hand touching the door knob, I give my first warning "Don't you dare come in here", as the door begins to open and little fingers begin to inch their way in, a child's way of saying 'and you can't slam the door on me either biotch'. "Can't you let me be for FIVE MINUTES??" I say in my annoyed mother tone, "but I HAVE TO TELL YOU SOMETHING" they little voice that is about to die says, "you can TELL ME SOMETHING from outside the door!" I insist. The door begins to close, but at the last second bursts open, like the flood gates in their brains overflowing with the important information they have to tell me.

"You have to come out here and video tape us. This HAS TO GO ON AMERICA'S FUNNIES!"

"That's great Maya, but can't you let me wipe my ass first?"

I mean really, I try not to cuss in front of my kids, which at times like these is hard. So here it is, this is what was so important. If it was funny it wouldn't be so bad, maybe.



Tomorrow:

"Mommy, I can see your boobies"
"Well then close the shower curtain and get out of the bathroom"

i'm thankful for...poker

We had a VegasPokerPro Thanksgiving this year. You all probably remember the poker table top I got from VegasPokerPro earlier this year, but my brother got a set of chips from them too. He had said they weren't very nice, but I had to disagree, I liked them very much and thought the feel and sound of the shuffling was EXCELLENT! It also had a lot of colors to choose from which is nice as well. My only advice is ... don't use the black for 100 and blue for 500, use black and blue for low and high or something cause they are hard to tell apart when stacked together.

Anyhoo, if you don't remember, VegasPokerPro is a poker site kind of like poker source online, where you can get bonuses if you deposit on certain poker sites. They also feature an active community forum, free poker tournaments and reviews of online poker sites. I've been impressed with the site, it's easy to use, and they were quick in getting me my gift of choice.

Anyhoo, we started with 7 players. I won a huge pot early in a twofer when I boated up with 79o taking my sister and my sister in law out of the game (and almost my brother in law too but he folded his two pair). The chips were enough to last me thru the game, even after my dad sucked out on me when i had 66 and the board came 774 and I went all in and he called with his JTo and hit a ten on the river. But alas, I continued to play like a donkey and took it down in the end, for a whopping $0 and a million dollars worth of bragging rights.

it's turkey lurkey day!
Today is my favorite holiday. It's like Christmas with out all the stress. The whole family gets together, hangs out all day, eats too much and makes fun of the youngest child, who of course is me. Good thing the youngest child has a good sense of humor.

Seriously though, my brother usually has me peeing my pants at some point during the day. Makes me feel ALIVE!!! Of course this year we are having it at my sisters which means Scott's family will be there too. Sometimes I wonder how strange they think WE are. Even though we think we are perfectly normal.

So I will try to bring home some good stories and photos for your viewing pleasure to make up for my postlessness this week. Which I'm sorry about by the way, I've just not had much to say. Not that there is any lack of stories, because I've had a really good one to tell all week. A big T blunder, but I just haven't foudn the humor in it quite yet, there is a thousand dollars blinding me from the humor of it all. But I shall clue you in as soon as I get past that. I'll work it out in therapy.

Miracles do happen afterall.

Big hugs out to all of you, have a wonderful day with your families. Eat, drink and be merry.

you game lover you...
Do you play free online games? You know the one's, "Addictive bubble wrap" or "Parallel park" or "Toss me in the trash can".

But did you know you can play Nintendo games online? mhm. www.excessively.net was one of the first two sites to offer classic Nintendo games online to play.

Ya, I didn't know that either, but I guess it shouldn't be surprising as you can pretty much get anything online now a days. Except the Duke Tumatoe song "Eat me I'm a turkey" what is up with that? I've been looking all morning.

buh bye...
Gonna be a busy weekend for the T-ster so don't come checkin back for updates. Here's my to do list:

  • Car Auction Friday - get paddle and resist urge to spank the used car dealers when they outbid you.
  • If I get a car I gotta do all that car stuff, if not I'll come home and talk mean about boys with Sheila.
  • Till I have to go to Maya's school to pick up the $400 worth of cookie dough and pizzas my brother sold for her fundraiser.
  • Bring said crap home to refrigerateable.
  • Pick up spawners of T and smallest spawn of T.
  • Take said spawner and spawn to the suburbs to visit my evil twin (just kidding she's the nice one and we aren't twins)
  • Go to suburban Christmas festival - they do things early out in the suburbs. I think it's an evil plan to avoid the black ppl.
  • If auction is not succeeded two more cars to look at Saturday morning.
  • Trip to Steve & Barrys, only a 45 minute drive, but it regs and worth it. Joe needs new work threads.
  • Pay the man - aka trip to Sam's Club/Walmart. It's my own little way of supporting terrorism.
  • OMG MY EYES MY EYES - LAUNDRY AWAITS!
  • Kill the Red Lobster so I can eat said Lobster ... plz.
  • Cause my self pain and suffering through much needed yard work. Trim trees, finish leaves and clean gutters.
Oh and don't forget, this is just the list that has to be done BETWEEN dealing with whiney kids and husband, feeding them and giving them some sort of attention so they think I still care.

Hope your weekend is as good as mine.

To start it off right, be sure to listen to this before you go.

"Say I wanted to mail your ass a letter, what would I have to write on the outside of that envelope to ensure the mail man delivers it right to your house, geographically speaking Mike, where is work."

And I thought I was good when I put the kids on the phone when they ask for "The head of household".

don't ask me, I just blog here...
We all know I love me some pay per post. I love having $50-$100 a week to take out of my paypal account, it's the highlight of my week. But sometimes, sometimes, they just go too far.

They have an opportunity right now where you get paid to make videos of yourself turning into a catfish. Mhmmm a catfish. You stumped? Well wouldn't you know there's an instructional video...PayPerPost



Ya, I know wtf is wrong with these people? They would pay me $15 to make my own catfish video, but I think I'd need donations from other sources to actually do it.

I dunno, I thought maybe Kent would think it's funny, or someone like Kent.

funny bird...
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, even over Christmas. Most likely cause it really is about hanging out with family and none of the stress over all the gifts.

We usually have it at my house, well the past 4 years anyhow, but this year my sister has the big new house and she gets to be the lucky host.

Over the past 4 years I have perfected my turkey baking. And the key to it my friends, is the brine.

What's a brine? It's a little mixture you let your turkey set in over night before you cook it!

So here is what you need:

  • big can o chicken broth
  • 1 gallon of apple cider
  • 6 pack guinness or dark beer
  • kosher salt 1-2 cups
  • cinnamon sticks
  • cranberries
  • garlic cloves
  • fresh sage and thyme
  • cooler- big enough for your turkey, the closer the fit the better off you are
  • 2 trashbags
You get the turkey all cleaned up and put it inside a trashbag that's inside the cooler (double bag the turkey, trust me I've busted a single bag thru more than once). If it's a big cooler you will want to put large pots on either side of trashbag to help liquid fill easier. Put turkey in cavity side up, throw all seasonings inside cavity, cinn, salt, garlic, sage, thyme and smoosh cranberries and put them in as well. Pour in chicken broth, cider and beer, then fill with water till turkey is submerged.

Let it sit over night, take it out butter it up and stuff it in the morning and later that day you'll have the best turkey you've ever eaten.

And for those of you that doubt me, I got this brine recipie off of Emeril.

are you poker savvy?
Another poker bonus site I hadn't heard of pokersavvy.com. So if you're ready to do the Online Poker jump, OR just switch some of the 'ol bankroll around check out the site.

They list their promo codes, have strategy articles and FREEROLLS at different sites just for pokersavvy people!

Something I noticed that is different is that you accumulate poker savvy points. For instance, if you sign up on Mansion poker you get 900 savvy points and to get a 30 gig video ipod you need 3000 savvy points. Pretty cool stuff.

It's a conspiracy!
I was reading Panga's blog today, very happy to see she posted btw, and she had a picture of Santorum's concession speech. You know the one where his daughter is balling her eyes out with her $120 baby doll in clutch. Ya, real heart breaking.

I remembered watching this LIVE, so I searched it down on youtube. For your viewing pleasure, the things I do for you people.

Anyhoo, it reminded me to search down the interview Jon Stewart did on The Daily Show with Sen. Rick Santorum. So, I decided to find that clip to share with you as well. And what did I find?? NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH! That's right, one of Jon Stewart's best interviews, nowhere to be found on youtube. Is that posssible?? Ya it's possible, if someone, somewhere had it removed. uhhuh. Maybe because they didn't want a canidate during a campaign to look like an idiot?

But ALAS!!! Comedy Central doesn't bow to the powers that be. That's right, it's still there.

You better watch it too damn it.

breaking news..
Man do I keep you guys informed...

Joe just got the call that he's been hired and they want him to start tomorrow. It's for a company called Siemens, which just happens to be the same company one of my readers Am aka Arthur works for. He will be a level 2 tech and hopefully move up soon, cause the pay isn't what he was looking for.

But it's still better than the $272 a week unemployement expects him to pay the mortgage and raise a family with.

GG Joe.

FAFSA...
You know what's weird? Every one of you know what that is. 5 un assuming letters, and shrills go down your spine.

I GET to go down to the school today to finalize my financial aid papers, but ya know what? I got to fill out my FAFSA online. That's some progress. Of course they give you a tutorial and all that jazz, like 9 FAFSA secrets and mP3 audio tour, but if you have half a brain or spend half as much time onilne as I do, you should be ok.

My school actually had a link right on their web site to the FASFA site. You have to log in and get a pin number first. Once that pin number is sent to you (about 3 or 4 days) you can log in and fill out that FAFSA and sign it with your PIN number. You also have to know the schools financial number so it is sent to the right place and voila! you're done.

I actually got my letter from the school 4 days later, so the information went thru quickly. So, lets review:

  • typing is good
  • writing is bad
That'll be all.

pure genius...
We had pizza's tonight for dinner, complements of Chef de Joe. He makes a mean pizza... anyhoo at one point Anna had excused herself from the dinner table to confer with a client in her office.

Maya was on her spelling kick as usual "You know what words have the "le" sound in them? "Apple, topple and able." I retorted with "Maple, candle and tumble". Then Joe chimed in with "Stinky buttable" which gave Maya the great idea of adding "able" to the end of words. She topped us all with "refrigeratable, and eatable". Of course we try to be good parents and told her it was "edible" and asked her if she knew what it meant. She says "Ya, eatable" I said "Able to be eaten" and Anna comes down the hall from her office and says "I know what edible means! Safe to eat!"

And that is the pure genius of a 3 year old.

hermits are cool...
I was out driving around yesterday. Had an appointment in the afternoon and then had to run some errands before picking up the girls. I found myself on my old side of town, on a street I don't drive down often any longer. I saw a store I wanted to stop in called "House of 10,000 Picture Frames" but was on my way to pick up Maya and didn't have time.

When I was in Vegas I got my girls and my niece these really cool hand painted pictures of their names. Each letter is spelled out in animals (tropical animals mostly) and they are reallybeautiful. Unfortunately they are about 36" by 12", not exactly a common frame size. I've looked online and haven't found much.

Anyhoo, when I saw the store my brain started to wonder off about how I hadn't really shopped at a local store lately, and how I pry should cause the local economy and all, and I guess you can't find everything online.... OR CAN YOU?

It made me wonder if anyone had tried that, living a year with out leaving their home, and how that would make a good tv show or something, but it would pry turn the person crazy after about 4 months I'm guessing. I mean, would you want to be stuck in your house every day? Ya the first couple weeks might be fun, but after that... I dunno. If you have children I think it would be impossible. So maybe it would be you just can't buy anything in person, no groceries or banking transactions or gas or beer. You have to somehow get it all online. I bet that's possible.

Any volunteers??

I like how I keep you in the know...
Lots of cool new things this week me thinks, and here is another. I don't know what people will think of next, and I'm not totally postitive an Online Safe Deposit Box is a great idea. I mean the things you want to keep safe aren't exactly something you want to scan and put on the internet, but it couldn't hurt to look into it a bit more.

I mean it would be handy in case of an emergency. Imagine this... *dreamy wave sequence*

You're driving home from work one day when POOF you're abducted by aliens. The aliens preform all kinds of tests on you for the next 30 years before they send you back to earth. They send you back just as you were when they took you, but the world kept going for 30 years. Good thing you scanned all your credit cards, insurance policies and banking paperwork into an Online Safe Deposit Box eh?

Of course it was.

i got the hook up...
Awhile back I did a post about Vimo, a place to find health insurance quotes and how they had good info, yada yada.


Well I just foung out that NOW they have a feature where if you review your doctor on their site, they send you a code for FIVE free music downloads from emusic.com. Thought you all might wanna get the hook up. Best thing is, it's for EACH doctor reviewed and for you old people that's like an entire music collection.

Here's what they had to say about it, "Our website is Vimo, and we're a place where people can comparison shop for healthcare. We want to hear from people about their doctors! So for every doctor that's reviewed, we'll send folks a code good for FIVE FREE SONGS on emusic.com. This is totallly free: no credit card needed, no "automatically starts billing you after a month" scam. Just five free songs. Best part: they're MP3s so they play on iPods, whatever."

So, ya bettah check yeself before ye wreck yeself.

cool beans...
It's cool, it's beans it's BrainCast.
(I know it's bad, but I have a big pot of cajun beans in the crock pot.. mmm)

AHA! I knew you would ask "What is braincast?" so here ya go...

According to the site "BrainCast Beta provides you with a free, easy to use, internet & phone based message/memo recording and organization system, compatible with any U.S. based cellular or regular telephone network.".

Or in T terms:
  • it is free
  • it's on the web
  • you login, enter the numbers you will call from and it gives you a 866 number you can call and record whateva you'd like to.
  • then when you log back into your account it's right there to share with whomever you choose.
  • oh ya, and it's free
Here is my audio impression of my blog.

OMGWTF is that cool or what?! I think Hrbek should do it and let lexi do a phone in journal each day, for our amusement of course.
edit: I was just informed that you have to register on the site to hear the audio clip. bah. not as optimistic about the whole thing now.

Or for me this would have been convenient for WSOP updates, less typing dontchaknow. Or for the really important things like the next pokerpalooza, LIVE UPDATES! Or maybe even Zerb could phone in every time he busted in a private tournament, I'd love to hear what that sounds like.

Either way, it has possibilities.

BrainCast you're um genius!

round on both ends and hi in the middle...
OHIO GOES BLUE!!

Not often you will hear an OSU fan glad we went blue. But, we now have our first Democratic Govenor in over 20 years.

Gov. Bob Taft of Ohio is one of the most unpopular governors in the nation and an ethics scandal surrounding his administration, combined with the rough terrain nationally for Republicans, will likely cause this state that put President Bush over the top in 2004, to fall into Democratic hands for the first time in more than 20 years.

The Republican candidate in Ohio, Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, was at the center of the state's voting controversy in 2004 and is a favorite son of the Christian conservative movement in Ohio, but has quite an uphill climb against his Democratic opponent, Rep. Ted Strickland.

Ya, there ya go Ken, we didn't like goin RED in '04 either.

One down...

NEXT winner is Sherrod Brown in our Senate race against Mike Dewine. Dewine has been around since I was a kid, but in recent years has turned into a rubber stamp for our deluded White House. Glad to see Ohio is getting the picture.

CBS News estimates that in Ohio, seven-term Democratic Rep. Sherrod Brown has won over GOP Sen. Mike DeWine. The last time a Democrat won an Ohio Senate race was 1992. Brown won among voters of both genders, all age groups and all races in the Ohio.

wooooohooooo!
I watched this, and it made me wanna pour beer all over myself, get in a car and yell "WOOOHOOOOO!!". Same for you?



If that was not enough for you then there is an all day marathon of PINKS followed by premiere of PINKS All Out on Speedtv on Nov 23rd. Or go get some more Drag Racing Clips.

But all in all, I think dude in the white hat had the right idea "my wife asked me who I was dating on the side and I said, MUSTANG SALLY". WOOO HOOOO! "Next to my wedding night, this is the greatest thing that's ever happened".

Oh man I got way too much enjoyment out of this. Still not sure why. YEAH BAYBEE!

I get these flyers from both my girls schools on a daily basis mostly, you know the ones. Pretty colored paper with a bunch of useless and/or conflicting information. So, today I will do my take on...

holy hell...
These pay per post people are precarious. (only P word I could think of with out googling).

How about a MONSTER TRUCK for advertising, eh? Ya, that might get some attention. Better yet, drive it up to a posters house and have a pizza eating contest, tail gate style, in his parking lot. And of course, don't forget to spell out Pay.Per.Post in toppings on the pizzas.

That's right, only a few of the things you can find in the Postie Patrol. Better question is, me thinks, would you gobble down a large pizza for $400? I think I would try, don't know if I could though. But for sure you should go out for chicken wings after... well, pry.


So, put on your cowboy boots, gets you some dip for that lip, put on your viking helmet, sit back, stick your hand in your waistband and get a fresh piece o hay for the chewin and watch the pay per posters at their finest.



Only thing is folks, I don't think that collectors item pizza box, with all the well sought after signatures, will be hanging around his apartment very long. Not to burst any bubbles, just sayin.

i'm a grump...
Most of you know this already... but you might not know why. I don't get much sleep, or rather my sleep is interrupted on a constant basis because of this...

I've wanted to record this for years, I suppose to get some sympathy... but alas it has brought me none. So, I reach out to you my dear readers.

if you're like me...
... and know close to nothing about mortgage's then here is the link for you! It's an online mortgage company that is actually user driven. They have extensive mortgage directory, forums and helpful industry content to browse through.

I checked it out and wish I would have known about it a month ago when we refinanced. Lots of good info if you're about to do a re-finance or equity loan.

I was lucky, because I know someone "in the know" about these sorts of things. But if you're not that lucky then this site would have a lot of helpful information.

pokerslut tour bounty quagmire...
Ok all, I need your unbiased opinions.

The Pokerslut Tour was mentioned on the Ante UP! podcast this week. The reason being , one of the hosts, Offdeadline, played in our Pokerslut Tour PLO tournament this past Saturday. I offered a bounty on his head that is followed:

Poker Slut Tour

Private tournament on Full Tilt Poker

This week is $5 Pot Limit Omaha Hi

Sundays at 9 pm EST

Password is imapokerslut



There will be a bounty this week on Offdeadline, host of anteup! poker podcast. That's right, if you bust Offdeadline you'll get a $5 bounty*! (and it's not hard to do!!) Also, visit the leaderboard if you get a chance, it is updated weekly.

Hope to see you all there!

*bounty paid by khanwoman and will be transfered to your Full Tilt Poker account.


In turn, Offdeadline proceeded to win the tournament. He stated (or whined) in the podcast this week that he should have recieved the bounty on his head since he didn't bust. My opinion may be somewhat skewed since I am the one paying the bounty. But the bounty did clearly state that it goes to any person who busts him, and this did not happen.


Your thoughts?

take it back...
In observance of Election Day coming up this Tuesday I thought I'd get this up.

I was watching a CNN special the other day about where the right went wrong and the jist of it was about how the conservatives aren't very happy about our Republican Regime in office right now. It was a great show by the way, I believe it was called Government Breakdown.

Anyhow, check out this site Take Back the Capitol!. It has a cute little you tube video and I especially like the guy who says "This isn't the Republican party I used to vote for" and the little baby with the onesie on that says "I'll still be paying for Bush's war when I'm 64".


And of course ...

VOTE ON NOVEMBER 7TH DAMN IT!!!
