that's my job and I do it very well thank you!
I mean-what the hell guys?
you trying to steal my shtick or what?
so, down to business.
you have been a thorn in the side of the internet for a very, very long time.
you have ruled over it with a silent hand, protecting the rights of internet users and openly defying the government.
again- MY JOB!!!
so I have a humble request to make of you, will you....for no apparent reason whatsoever.
contact me, the wolf, and tell me under no uncertain terms, just what it is you guys actually do?
the wolf is very confuse to the point of being angry.

you guys create and harvest discord so that america may sleep safer at night, so the internet may still be free, but I ponder the nature of this chaotic good of yours.
is it truly a good thing to do all of this?
is it right to inconvenience the lives of others in my stead?

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
To you, upside-down tomato plants look no more unusual than hanging flower baskets. In fact, you think a few of the green vines with red fruit will be the perfect edition to your deck. Do what you want. Let others be envious. You do not have the time.

Wall art to inspire you every day of the year!Did you make a New Year's resolution this year? I didn't, though it's safe to say that sprucing up the home and keeping a positive outlook are both things I will be attempting to work on.

I scoured the web for affordable artworks that say something inspiring (without the schmaltz) that you just might want to read over and over again. Looking through them makes my heart all buzzy. Check out these 8 inspiring works of art that will inspire you all year long ...Read More »from The Writing's on the Wall: 8 Works of Art that Will Inspire You All Year Long

Whether you have a strong love of the game of chess or you are simply enchanted with the game's history, you'll find that there is something about a chess set that is pleasing to both the hand and the eye. The square board, with its stark black and white squares, adds a wonderful angularity to your home, while the pieces themselves, sculpted and gorgeous, catch the eye and draw the hand closer to touch. Even in a purely decorative sense, chess sets can give your home a sense of dignity and playfulness that it lacked before.
When you want to buy a set of chess pieces for your home, don't settle for a simple child's toy with a cardboard board and plastic pieces. Chess is a game for kings, and some of the sets that you can buy are absolutely fit for kings. For example, consider how it would look to have a mahogany box and board set with wooden pieces that have been carefully carved? Wood is a wonderful choice for chess pieces, adding both texture and warmth to the room.
My babys birthday is next week. He wants to go to the movies with me that weekend. Hopefully I'll be able to go with him. Just got to find a ride though. I'll probably car pool with one of my friends or bribe my cousin to take me.
