You know, Lyz brings up a good point... if I sold my computer, I bet I could afford cable modem service and Web hosting for like a year or two!

Wait, is that...? No, that makes sense. That makes sense.

I understand that you're upset, Lyz, but please think this through. If you don't feel I deserve a dollar a month for the humble amusements I provide, you're under absolutely no obligation to give me one. Considering your strenuous objections to my unmitigated gall for even suggesting such an idea, I'd feel pretty bad if you did.

Now, you certainly won't find your access blocked if you don't donate. So I'm not sure where all the anger is coming from. But if voting with your wallet isn't sufficient and it's just so frustrating that you can't stand it, you can vote in my latest poll or leave a few overheated posts in my comments. I guess you're ahead of me on that second one.

The point I'm trying to get at, Lyz, is that I'm here for you. We're here for you. Let it all out.

Update: Power to the purple pills!

Kind of like, if I sold my car, then I could afford my car payments? Or -- if I quit my job, then I could afford to pay my rent, because then I wouldn't need a car. Yeah.

Hey bro, Liz was harsh but look on the bright side: you may not be "gay nor Republican" (and therefore not be able to make it as a blogger), but at least you aren't HIV positive like Sullivan. Unless you are, in which case on top of all that other poor stuff it REALLY would suck to be you.

At least he's getting laid.

Isn't the internet great? Finally, a place where people can go to pee in each other's Wheaties with relative impunity.

I sleep better at night, knowing that.

OMG Mark fucking Russell? He's like seventy-two-thousand years old and boring. They used to play his "comedy" specials on PBS during pledge weeks. I think the message was "give us money and we'll stop with the Mark Russell crap." Ooh! Donations! How crass!!!

wow, for a pretensious snob with no readership I sure got your panties in a bunch. Touched a sore spot?

There you go, Lyz, just let it all out. Everything's gonna be okay.

It's spelled pretentious, by the way.

I keep trying to donate on Liz's site but can't find the buttons.
I would love to answer those cries for help that she is to proud to openly speak but find myself a bit reluctant.
The indicators point to someone who is made up from a hodgepodge of stereotypes without any origional thought. Contributing to that illness is not in anyones best interest.
