Just another Mongoose Monday

I'm in Austin today for business, after spending way too late last night getting ready to be able to be in Austin today for business. I love that the Austin airport has a fifty cent bus to downtown. It's nicer to not have to fiddle with cabs. But today I'm on a mission. A mission I'll call the Mongoose Mission. Although it's not quite "long enough", really, since my last poll, I'm in need of a little delayed-weekend escape. So let's discover our inner mongoose (mongeese?)!



Poll #294521 It's Monday Mongoose Transmogrification Time!
