My semi-informed election guide

First off, the 40goingon28 Special Election Guide:

Vote no on everything.

Why? Because voting "yes" just encourages the stupid budget bullshit that's now inflicted on us annually by our state legislators. Instead of figuring out a way to make expenditures match revenue - hey, there's an idea!!! - the fucking Legislature just punted the whole thing to us and said "Vote for all these ballot props that you don't understand and bail us out for another year." Well, you know what? Fuck you. You get paid to go sit in the fancy room in Sacramento and have lunch at Frank Fat's and get your picture taken with Mrs. Pauley's second grade class and all that bullshit, so you figure it the fuck out.

There is that one measure that limits legislative pay, and that's tempting, but fuck that too. Voting yes on anything just encourages this special election bullshit. So vote no. No on everything.

Happy Friday, everyone! Oh, you can't roll a keg across the city as part of Bay to Breakers this year? Deal with it.

I would now like to draw your attention to a few blogs I've been reading/enjoying lately:

Ramona has an ongoing column at the SF Appeal which is grandly entertaining, but her blog is maybe even better.

100 Emails, 20 Dates chronicles one girl's adventures in online dating.

Everybody knows about Daisy.

If you're a high-functioning alcoholic like me, you'll enjoy Camper English's Alcademics.

In a related story, how fucking cool would it be to be named "Camper English"?

Has Texts from Last Night already jumped the shark? I'm not sure.

Have a good weekend.

As long as "Everyone" does not include my mother, we're all good.

Thanks for the shout out. (Do people still use that word?)
