    OK, I'm alternating between giggle-snorting and weeping as I watch this, awesome indeed.

    This super-heroine will be whipping out her trusty cc to bring down the forces of short-sighted, small-minded, budget-gutting politicians.

    You wouldn't believe the horrendous puns I came up with for villain names before deciding to go in a different direction. …Actually, it was just the one, but it was so lame, it felt like half a dozen.

  • Sarah D. Bunting says:

    @Jen: Oh yeah. Wrote it off as a business expense, too.
