    on Apr 20, 2011 in internet blogging computer
    As my creative juices continue to flow - or, gurgle, sputter, and spit until the augger of my inner me dislodges whatever the hell was blocking said juices - I continue to utilize a resource I've never even met in person. Or spoken to verbally. Isn't...

    One of the perks of inviting once-wild-now-domesticated animals into your home is their innate need to mark where they live. And by mark I mean piss. I choose the word piss out of sheer disgust. It is an ugly word for a dispicable behavior that these...
  • Because she has a lot to say
