For what, getting grumpy? I've heard stuff on this list I wouldn't let my dog read.

BTW I make a lot--depending on the year. I've been out of work during the last six months and I pay child support. I don't own a house. I make huge payments on a car with a cracked windshield. I live in a 150 year-old adobe in the middle of the barrio. Average take for the last three years: Approx. $50K. And I still live from paycheck to paycheck. In my wild Marxian fantasies I see myself at the forefront of what I like to call "the chronically employed/unemployed but in debt up to my ass class." That's the bane of the IT consultant in his/her mid-life crisis on the road to ruin. If there is a revolution in America, I imagine it'll be kneaded out of scum of the earth like me.
