Try "I used up all my resources and I don't have any left"? Sound familiar?

“I'm all tapped out?”

None of those have the visceral sense of "exhaustion" present in the original phrase...maybe the shock value is what makes it work, I dunno.

PS, YELAS, you were one of the ones supposed to skip down to the picture of the doggie...
--Kirk Sat Dec 18 23:16:06 2004
Meaning? Squeam or Prude? Just curious.

"And I'm spent." Give it a touch of bad Austin Powers voice if you're truly desperate to evoke ejaculation.

Not a bad idea, Nick, just have to rearrange how the sentence is presented.

i love that yelas (and, presumably, yelm) did not indeed skip to the nice doggy but instead read about your need to liken spending a lot of money (and time and ideas) to ejaculation. kirk, a new high. but i'm laughing, so you get a free pass on this one. does ksenia read this stuff?

Hmmmm. . .the entry felt like a huge build up with something unexciting happening at the end. Kinda like shooting the load after such a big buildup. What a great ironic literary technique, Kirk. Awesome.

Mr. Lex is on target, seems to me.
