  • On November 4, 2008, Johnson County voters will be asked to throw out our current and well-tested selection system where judges are selected based on merit, experience and qualifications and instead install a partisan election system that will turn every judge into just another politician, making promises and taking money like any other politician.

    If that's not enough of a reason, how about this: by electing judges, we open up the possibility of having Phill Kline in a position of power. Again.

Weight Watchers Update

Standard

I haven’t posted much lately because really, who wants to hear me talk about how I’ve lost a couple of pounds or gained half a pound? I don’t read diet blogs just because of how boring that type of posting is. However, I am going to ignore that today because I am .4 pounds away from making my 10% goal! Next week, I plan on being there. I started in mid-April, so it has definitely taken me some time. But yay! 10% weight loss is pretty damned cool in my opinion.

Hosting Change

Standard

I have recently changed my hosting away from 180 Networks, not because I don’t like Jason and the great job he does, but because I am a lazy git.

I have been using self-hosted blog software for the past few years and you know what? You have to update that shit. All I want to do is show up, blabber on for a few minutes, hit post and have everything magically appear.

I’ve been holding on to self-hosted blog softwares because I want to use personalized layouts and be In Control and I have recently decided that being In Control is a lot of bother.

So…for now, I am on WordPress.com. We’ll see if laziness suits me. I suspect it will….
