LOL, thanks Alison. Odd, isn't it?

OT: I know you hate memes, and you don't have to do anything for this, but I nominated you for the "Thinking Blogger" award last week. I swear, you don't have to do anything.

Damn, that's right - this was the Cons official Accountability Week.
What a scream!

I think you should do this as a regular feature.

Alison said...

OK, JJ?
You lost me at "I know you hate memes... but..."

So I'm going to take you at your word and not do anything - no way I'm going near that link.

And thank you muchly, darlin', for the honour.

That pesticide business really pisses me off. Lord, anyone can see the USA is racing headlong for the bottom, but where is it written that we have to match them stride for stride?
