I knew a guy whose blog was so cool…

“How cool was it?”

It was so cool, it would automatically import comments once a day from the Facebook “notes” based on his blog entries.

“That’s not a very funny joke.”

Sorry, it wasn’t really a joke, just bragging about the cool WordPress plug-in I’m using, called Facebook Comments.

Now I can tell just how infrequently I post blog entries, because I’ve already received and spent my next $3 coupon from Staples. This time I bought some paper for my printer, because I need paper, and because it was on sale for only $4.99 a ream. So $1.99 later, I’ve got myself a nice ream of paper. Woo-hoo!

I guess it was actually $4.99 plus tax, minus $3, so that’s about $2.38. Good thing I bought it before April 1st, otherwise it might have been $2.43! (The sales tax in California goes up 1 percentage point on April 1st, so about $.05 on a $5.00 purchase.)
