I'm allergic to cats and cheap...

There are two things in life that I'm allergic to - cats and "Ultramicrofiber". It should be called "Ultramicrofiberglass". The sofa that I'm allergic to was exchanged for a fine Italian leather one. I'm not sure that I was as allergic to Ultramicrofiber as I was to cheap. Now I need a laptop-friendly coffee table so that I can get some work done.

Customer Service...
Rodney at SleepEzzzz was quite gracious about exchanging the sofa. No restocking fees, no re-delivery and set up fees, no wait. Unfortunately it's the only place in town like that. I got charged $32.50 at the Chevy dealership to tell me my BMW needed $1000 worth of brakes. "You should have bought American." No, I should have gone somewhere that cared about my business. So tomorrow I'm driving to someplace that's heard of BMWs, buying $300 in parts, and doing the job myself. It's no wonder that foreign cars are gaining acceptance. It isn't that people like them, it's that they hate what the American car dealers have done to them so much that they're willing to give those jobs to some other country. I blame UAW. GM is dropping 37,000 jobs because they're losing money? Ford and Chrysler following suit? They deserve what they get.

Domains and Web Hosts and Registrars...Oh my!
After spending several days trying to set up a cname to this blog, I transferred two domains from to Lesson: Make sure your web host and domain registrar are the same person.
