Check this out! If they ever decide to get into sharking pool or darts, we're in trouble.

Well, I agreed on a contract to sell my house. It sold in under two days for over asking price. The Austin real estate market is treating me well. It'll be sad to leave, but I'm not going far and I've wanted to get out of living in a city for a while. I've already picked out a new place in San Marcos, and am having it inspected on Saturday. Bigger, nicer, close to school. Ugly color, but the seafoam is growing on me. After the inspection we'll work out the final details.

R.I.P. Kurt Vonnegut. The author who brought us The Slaughterhouse Five, Galapagos, Cat's Cradle, and Breakfast of Champions passed away on Wednesday.

At least they are subpoenaing Roves e-mails. Sink damn you sink.

So, I had to go to the Mega-Lo-Mart the other day because that's were we have our tax-exempt paperwork for the project. I hate the place. Some people get road rage, I get big-box rage. But I did find a couple of things that made me giggle.

1. Jingoistic Energy:

The tag line on the back says "Keeping Americans Strong" and it's got the Pledge of Allegiance with the under god in all caps. The religious right really wants to forget that it wasn't in the pledge until the 1954, and that the writer of the original was a socialist who left his church because it promoted bigotry.

Even better on the energy drink front:

The flavor is "Steven Segal's Asian Experience" There's so many things wrong with that.
