Hey, does anyone know what it costs to have a rug cleaned? I have like two 8x10, two 10x12, maybe one 6x8 and two runners. I can't find local prices online, possibly because I am dumb.

My idea is to get all our rugs cleaned because a) they are dirty but more importantly b) when you get rugs cleaned, they roll them up in nice plastic that is good for moving. So I will probably do this anyway regardless, but I'd like some kind of cost information.

Back in 2008, I gave some money to Barack Obama. I know, dumb me, right? But someone of my acquaintance gave money to Ron Paul -- I didn't object to that, exactly, but I felt I needed to counteract it.

I unsubscribed from all the Obama mailing lists a long time ago, or so I thought. Today, for the first time in years, I received an email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee:

I guess this was important enough to break radio silence )

Now, I wasn't much fazed by this -- I had some trollish thoughts, but mainly I thought oh, I got myself on a mailing list and forgot to unsubscribe, let me go do that. So I went and clicked the unsubscribe link.

And this is what I got:

Republican SuperPACs and right-wing media pundits are out to defeat President Obama and Democrats nationwide.

We need you with us.

However, if you’d only like to receive our most urgent messages (about one e-mail per month), you can enter your e-mail address here:


Wait.

Wait just a FUCKING MINUTE.

Your "unsubscribe" link is more like a "unsubscribe EXCEPT WHEN WE FEEL LIKE DOING EMAILS" link?

Oh. It. Is. ON.

Dear Jennifer,

As an advocate of violence against women, I'm afraid I can't support your movement. We should all be destroyed; the criminalization of abortion and the legalization of violence against women, though not nearly enough, will go a long way toward achieving that goal.

By the way, if I click a link that says "unsubscribe," I should not be taken to a page that tells me I can opt for one email a month. This does not make me feel any more kindly toward my sex.

Love and kisses,
Elizabeth
