Is there a more interesting website in the world? Perhaps!

-

I edit everything. Every. Damn. Thing.

Of course, I've been active on Twitter and Facebook this week too. I'm not going to embed anything today, you'll just have to check out those streams yourself.

-

Am I getting everything done I need to in lieu of writing the column this week? Hardly. It's barely making a difference. I'm at a loss. Also: I need a million dollars. Willing to take just half up front.
