Side note: due to some administrativa, I won't have internet access at home until later in the week. Luckily, I'm pretty busy, so I'm not going through CoH withdrawal (yet) but man, no e-mail or LJ except at work! It's heartbreaking. (plus, I'll have to sneak Gimp onto this machine so I can do some icons.)

Oh, and for those who know Selene, she has *no* internet access, effectively. I'm sure she'd appreciate phone calls where you just laugh at her expressing your sympathy.

Still hip deep in moving, work still busy, etc. Many thanks to Norton and Selene for helping me move bulky objects yesterday. It was a mighty pile of things. And I don't even think I broke my toe, but man, it sure felt like it.

"Republicans have held the House for almost 12 years and have occupied the White House for all but eight of the past 25 years, yet they have failed to shut off the spending valves in Washington. It was only a matter of time before Democrats ran against wasteful Republican spending... Republicans were sent to Washington in the 1950s to repeal the New Deal. Voters sent them packing when it became clear they were big spenders. In the 1990s Republicans were sent to Washington to repeal the Great Society. If they too turn out to be big spenders, they can expect a similar fate."
