A post-christmas miracle is responsible for another Google check that arrived today. The gap between checks was only a month longer than usual this time, which is surprising given the state of the economy (and subsequent reduced number of ad-clicking fingers/bots). I credit the federal bailout money for keeping my Google check regular, and gladly accept it. As with the last few checks however, this one is not going to stimulate the economy in it's time of need, but instead getting set aside for the next 1,000 commenter party which I anticipate to occur in 2035. Assuming we survive the galactic alignment of 2012 with John Cusack, and thawing of Simon Phoenix in 2032 I should have enough saved for at least 3 rounds of hoverkarts and slightly more than the standard ration of protein paste for refreshments.
