I'm really tired...

Lately, I feel like the only people reading my blog are people who will get why this is funny:


Breaking news:

At around 8 pm last night, during a full Fallon staff meeting, Grassroots Organizer Adam Mason found the spackle.

It wasn't where any of us exspackled it to be.

This is what working with me is like:

Quick one act play:

CO-WORKER: Do you know where the spackle is at?
KL: I could spackulate.

But, as an alternative...

Something completely different from my previous melancholy post:

I'm proud to share a birthday with towel day:

Douglas Adams was a true genius.

A quick hypothetical...

Not campaign related:

Which is more true: "Discretion is the better part of valor" or "anything worth having is worth fighting for?"

It's my 23rd birthday in 29 minutes. It's a strange time to be playing with moral connundrums.

Joe nails it

When it comes to financial matters, there are two people I trust more than anyone else:

1) My mom, an accountant.
2) Joe Kristan of the Tax Update Blog.

Sadly, my mom's never written anything half this good about the Cuno decision:

"If we couldn't tax our existing businesses to lure and subsidize their competitors, we economic development professionals would have to find other work."

Go read the whole thing.

Create your own political ad!

After an afternoon of recording radio ads, I've decided everyone should get to share that joy. So, open up a Word file (or if you're not digitally inclined, get out a pad of paper) and number 1-17. Then, write down the following:

1. Name
2. Verb+ing
3. Public Office
4. Verb+ing
5. Group
6. Plural Noun
7. Verb+ing
8. Cardinal direction (i.e. North)
9. State
10. Verb
11. Noun
12. Qualitative noun (i.e. Fairness, Dedication, etc)
13. Name
14. Adjective
15. Date
16. Election type (general, school, primary, etc)
17. Your campaign name

Ok, now that that's done, drop your results in the following ad script:

Hi, I'm (1), and I'm (2) for (3). I'm (4) because (5) are corrupting our political system, and (6) are (7) your tax dollars.

Here in (8) (9), I've worked to (10) the (11), and I strongly believe that (12) should be our top priority.

I'm (13), I'm (14), and I'm asking for your vote in the (15) (16) election.

This ad paid for by (17).

Post your results in the comments.

What I'm doing instead:

Ok, so I probably won't blog this week, I'm busy with another topic:

Ed's on his Rural Working Tour this week, and I'm splitting time between scrambling to finish all my office work at once and blogging the tour for

So if you're feeling the need for some accordion/blacksmithing jokes, keep an eye on the blog. In fact, keep both eyes on the blog. It'll be updated twice daily throughout the tour.
