We didn’t do JACK today but go through Uncle B’s shit trying to get his paperwork ready for the bookkeeper. We’re refinancing Badger House and nobody’s lending just now. It ain’t easy making your net look tiny to the tax man and huge to the bank man. When your accountant is honest.

Also, Uncle B stores paperwork the way I imagine a giant hamster would. And his last bookkeeper vanished with half the papers we need. And his fiscal year starts (confusingly) in September, because that’s when he started working. Oh, also I’m completely innumerate.

On the whole, self-employment is a LOT less fun than unemployment. Pray he never figures that out.

September 1873, let me add.

And they wonder why the self-employed are raving anti-statists!

Unemployment is FUNemployment! But yes, self-employment is more work for less pay. Its just more freedom and you usually are doing what your passion drives rather than what you need to inorder to survive.

I fear the comments section of Hot Air. All those really big blogs have the worst comments, its like a room full of glue-sniffing chimpanzees most of the time.

The bigger they are, the dumber the comments.

YouTube is an IQ-sucking dumbmonster.

that’s why I rarely post, even on hotair……

I like the smaller, more personal blogs…

Oh, and Christopher, congratulations on publishing your book! I’m envious of those who can organize their brain stories onto paper. And be understood. And make a point or two.

Ace of Spades HQ is one exception to the bigger=stupider comments rule, as is Volokh (although I don’t know how big that blog is) and Protein Wisdom. Right Wing News can have good comment discussions too, but there’s a cadre of rotating leftist twits that ruin any constructive dialogue at RWN.

LGF always was a miserable festival of awful comments, and now its turned into a prison camp of Christophobes and left-leaning twerps.

True…I’ve always said Ace’s blog was the one example I can think of where the comments and the owner were equally entertaining. A really good Ace thread is a treat.

Yay, PnB! Remember, that’s ME you’re flogging when you wear that t-shirt. Don’t scratch your butt or pick your nose or anything, K?

Thank you, Wollf. Everyone is a’scared of stoats, and quite rightly. I’ve been to your place before, I’m sure. Must’ve seen you in my logs.

Damn Weasel, some of those commenters think the Zombie Reagan thing is disgusting. Look at it this way though, you did it first. My motto: If you’re going to piss people off do it first with the most.

Speaking for myself, I like making stupid comments on smaller blogs.

Thank you M’Lady Stoat….. ‘Spescially for not biting my tender nose. You truly are one of the most talented Weasels on the Web. Allen, sheesh….Stupid things are more entertaining……

In my defence, I do try to drag Ace’s comment thread down to the greatest extent possible when I post one there. I say awful, awful words and allow the blogatorical equivalent of veins in my temple to show. Here I am positively serene, if such can be believed.

Reminds me of Uncle Scrooge’s filing system. He once needed to find the receipt for a loan he’s paid off during the Alaska Gold Rush. It was in a pile of papers, about 90L-6F; that is, 90 feet from the left wall and 6 feet off the floor.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
