Mice Krispies

Six days since my last post? Oh shit. I am striking distance from my 600th post (a dubious distinction at best) but at this rate it will be months before I get there. I’ve gone from hardest working blogger to laziest blogger, probably because I have such a busy and important life. But not really. […]

Recession Porn (2536-2582)

Cato loves watching Toy Hunter and Pawn Stars while he plows through piles of Zeb’s junk valuable merchandise. The craze started with the Antiques Roadshow.

Today was an ass-kicker. I went through my clothes a few weeks ago when I did the summer to winter changeover. The weather has been so wonky that I waited until almost December to pack up the shorts. Can you say climate change? I donated the stuff that I didn’t think had any resale value […]
