Lunchtime Poll

LTP: 8/15/11

Hiya, readers!  It’s Monday again, and the world is still turning.  Hope everyone had a great weekend, and the get the blood flowing in your brain, I have a juicy lunchtime poll after the break.

Mr.B has always wanted to open a coffee shop/tattoo parlor, so I think I’d probably give the money to him to get that started because I’m pretty happy with my small, uncomplicated set-up.
