Tim, that is half my job... don't know what I would do if I was not hotlinking every image I could get my hands on. ;)
I did not realize that absolute paths would require a new apache thread, but when I stop to think about that, it does make sense. So by using absolute paths on everything, images/page links/js includes, you are actually working your apache harder. Did I understand that correctly?

Quit hotlinking google images and that will fix it.

It is possible that this will make a difference, but it's generally negligible. Keep in mind that absolute links require an additional Apache process to resolve the domain name, etc. Relative links are handled in the same Apache process. So, if you have a TON of absolute URLs on your page, this could add up to a noticeable difference in latency to your page, but not to individual load times once the request has been made.
