Apologies for the lack of posts lately; I thought I was feeling better, but I thought wrong.
Also, the widget that schedules posts is still upgefickt, so no Live at Five posts until that gets unwedged.
Also also, no CPAC for me this year; the ACU turned down my request for media credentials. Welp.

    CPAC is more militant about fees than most ComicCons.

    I went a few years ago when it was downtown at the Hotel Formerly Known As The Sheraton Park, and had no trouble getting blogger credentials then. Ah well; my time is better spent in the tax mines anyway.

    You recover! When are you moving to Las Vegas?

    Memorial Day weekend. I figure I’m going to need a week to recover from the death march to April 15 and another month to get stuff organized for the movers.

    I feel your pain in the tax mines. I’m at both a local franchised provider and doing it for free on top of finishing my last semester. Not sure how I’ll survive with my sanity…

    It’s bad enough doing it for pay, I can’t imagine volunteering to do it. Even friends and family only get discounts, not freebies.

    The Aussie cousins are definitely interesting folks…but a virgin at 30? They need to find him a sweet sheila to share his burrow with!

    The free tax returns are for academic credit.

    This is a week old, but I’m hoping that our host will see it as motivation to wrap up the book, leave the crazy behind, and get on with a saner project: Crashing the Gates: The Non-feminist Invasion of Feminist Mindspace

    You’d think they would find him a girlfriend.
