On July 1, 2003, Southern Hope Humane Society was awarded the contract to run Fulton County Animal Services, which provides animal care and control for Fulton County, the City of Atlanta and 8 other municipalities. There are hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens available for adoption on the Fulton County Animal Services website.
I just wrote a check.
It wasn't big.
Like those giant sweepstakes ones, just the regular size.
And not for a lot of money.
But it's something.
Do you want a tax deduction before the end of the year? Matt thinks you do. This is Matt. Doesn't he remind you of Mitchell. Miiiiitchelllllll!
I bet there are a lot of rescued Katrina animals named Katrina. I think they think that's poorly thought-through.
Do or don't do what you want. I'm just sayin.....My God says this is how you stay out of hell.
This is my foooour leaf cloooovahh

Let me know. I'm in the market.
Also, if there's a decent one out there, fairly new, we're also interested in that, too.

real science at work
|Your Brain's Pattern|
Your mind is a firestorm - full of intensity and drama.
Your thoughts may seem scattered to you most of the time...
But they often seem strong and passionate to those around you.
You are a natural influencer. The thoughts you share are very powerful and persuading.
Welcome to Storyville
If you click on the pic, it should take you to Amazon's page. It's also for sale at Barnes and Noble, as well.
In an email he said that this book is stories which are based on songs. And if you buy the book, and would like a copy of the cd of songs on which the stories are based, he'll be happy to burn one. I'm sure that offer would extend to anyone (of you 5 or 6) who read this blog. Let me know if you are interested. He'll probably see this post, so if I've extended hospitalities improperly, I may retract. ...heh heh.

Leslie Victoria Sharp is a 30 year old 40 year old
I wanted to post our plans for her birthday here for those who I know and love (or those who I know and Leslie loves) in case I lost your email in the great outlook/ms office vanishing of Thanksgiving '05. (By the way, if you haven't re-sent your email to me, please do so. I prolllly don't have it)
We are going to meet after our Push Push workshop at Thinking Man's Tavern. About 9:30pm. I know it's a school night, but f u c k i t. The place is cozy and warm, good food, cheap beer, friendly staff, great juke box, and Leslie can sit there and turn 40 with her friends.
Elena McNash's head just got skinnier
Anyway, she apologized that I had to write the letter. I thanked her for responding so quickly, assured her that my animosity wasn't directed at her (fat head) or the teller chick, but rather at the policies of banks across the board which put 100% of the liability on the consumer. She agreed. We both had a moment, we both hung up, and I like to imagine we then both called each other "bitch" under our breath.
But when I did it, I giggled afterward. I bet she didn't.
Anyway, here's the link for Yahoo!
People can also go to www.slampsberg.com/podcasts.html.
iTunes and Podcast Alley are also options (they just need to search for
We've broken down the pilot to 5 episodes that run about 10 minutes or so.
First one is up now...new one in 2 weeks.
Spread the word! Mary -- put it on your blog!
Here are the sites where Slampsberg is currently available:
Couple of points:
- Install iTunes
2. In you web browser, paste this link:
3. There is an apparent bug in iTunes where by hitting the “subscribe” button over and over again, actually counts as new subscriptions. So, guess what you might want to do…Click the “subscribe” button many, many times.

If so, is that O.K?
And if not, should I be?
I look forward to your comments.

I'm a little worried about watching it for the first time in front of people. Looks like drinks at 10:00.
How weird. Weird to think that your picture is somewhere you've never been. The poster hanging at the Austin Film Festival:
Couldn't even buy a house in Marvin Gardens
Oh well, they give it back to me, and I give them another one.
Little did I understand the apparent luck I had just experienced with this transaction. Read 78 year-old Lucille Howard's story from Augusta! WTF?! (unfortunate bugmenot code: cunt88, licker)
This morning I went to the credit union again, told them what happened, the teller chick who I always go to sighs, looks worried, goes off to talk with her manager. She comes back, I'm waiting for an apology and another twenty.... "I'm sorry, Elena says there's nothing we can do about it."
Reeeeally. Well, Clark Howard's consumer help line says, well, yeah, that's technically pretty much the policy across the board with banks. They gave me a list of numbers to call and websites to visit, which I won't call or visit---not for $20, even though it's more about the principle of the thing and customer service issue that gets me.
They agreed with me, though, in that...I mean, what do you do? Carry a counterfeit detection marker with you and test every bill you get from the bank before you leave?
They suggested a note. So I wrote a letter to f-ing Elena McNash, branch manager, when I got home. I was too hopping mad to go talk to her at the time, and I would've ended up in a fist fight. I just know that feeling I get when I feel like the little guy (big girl) is being taken advantage of and ignored by big beaurocracy. Seriously. Makes me wanna punch at things. Things that look like Elena McNash's big head. The letter itself is fairly professional, it is not hostile. But here's the subtext:
"Give me my $20, you puffy-paint-sweater-wearing-B98.5-listening-fat-headed bitch, or I'LL take MY $400 ELSEwhere, thank-you-very-much!"
Can I borrow $20?
