Just placed a $200 order for CFLs and LEDs. I love energy efficiency!

Really enjoyed @skamille’s talk tonight at @papers_we_love! Thanks so much to everyone involved!

I love buying software directly from independent developers, but I cringe every time I get redirected to Paypal… ugh.

Just signed up to be a monthly supporter of @Wikipedia — happy to have the opportunity!

Sound advice from my Geico adjuster: “next time your car rolls off a lift, don’t drive it home!”
