socks and cat

No joke

Not an April Fool's joke: On April 1st sales tax in Seattle goes up from 9% to 9.5%. And you can still drive to Portland for those super expensive purchases if you don't want to pay tax. I just spoke with some one yesterday who drove to Portland to buy his girlfriend an engagement ring. If you're going to spend a few thousand dollars on something, you can save a few hundred in tax by driving out of state for it.

(no subject)

Having sworn off shopping (with the possible exception of the dealer room at Norwescon), it doesn't help when Victoria's Secret sends me an e-mail telling me I can have 20% off my entire order today only. It's like bringing crack to the house of a recovering crack addict that is trying not to relapse.

How do you send a MySpace bulletin?

How do you send a bulletin on MySpace? I want to use my business MySpace page to send a coupon to everyone that is subscribed to me. But I have searched and searched and can't find any kind of "send bulletin" link. I'm receiving bulletins. How are people sending them?
