I'm one of the causes of the economic crisis
While on our errand to Barnes and Noble today, Bi-Baby informed me that she was starving, so I suggested that we grab lunch at Rock Bottom which was nearby. We parked a short walk away and on the walk I said, "I hope they're not out of business because of the economy."

Sure enough, we get to the door and there's a sign on the door stating that their last day of operation was 2/1/09.

We ended up slumming it at Joe's All American Grill. I got the meatloaf club and Bi-Baby got the margherita pizza.

We did our part to help the economy.

3. I did a lot of bartering today at the farmers market.
I bartered soap and lip balms for bread, a six-pack of baby lettuce, wasabi dip and a cat toy made from local rooster feathers. I imagine more and more people are bartering.

4. Same thing is going to happen soon when you go out to look at cars.
It really looks like GM will be going under.

:scared:
