Hee hee. That is high praise, indeed. It's Matrix poetry; I should submit it to their site, hey?

I like it . Its a natty little rhyme, sort of Camus meets Glibert and Sullivan

I probably should be, but I'm not really concerned that it doesn't make sense. After all, did you notice that it rhymes?

In reality, it was much stranger.

The Topix: Reloaded
Through attrition and by request, we've got a rotation of six topic-posters now. I've adjusted the script, so that may have shuffled your upcoming topic day. If you note any bugs, they're Ben's fault. (Learning from Corporate America, I am.) Non-topic-posters are always welcome to write, and also to post after noon, Central, on a day with no topic.

As my Brasilians say, "no problem." ^_^ I completely understood why you posted the anniversary topic; that was fine. And, uh, duh, it hadn't occurred to me that Shawn would have asked you to post a topic. What, married people talk off-line? I'll have to try that. Hey, Jon...

Hey sorry. I know thats twice that I have gone out of turn. The first time (anniversary) was because it was a significant day for me, and that post meant something to me as it was in fact the anniversary of events that took me four years and about seven minutes to write about ( it was also a weekend, and I did not think anyone would mind.) Today it was Shawn's turn, and he asked me to post for him when I spoke with him last night, I see now that he meant if he did not get to it. As it happens I guess it does not really matter since he could not log on. I will make a point of waiting in the future though.

Those are not just big hills are they? Lovely. I am so glad you got to enjoy them

Hi, Margaret. The standing agreement we set up way-back-when is that the topic poster has until noon, Central, and then it's anybody's game. So, if you would, hang onto your topic, and we'll see if Shawn has time to post. Your enthusiasm's great, though. I'm hoping we can get some life back into this, eh?

Oh, and... Mountains. *contented sigh*

Oh sure, now everybody's gonna look. Way to ruin the surprise, Sharon... ;)

*chortle* Pre-dating my own topic, to make up for being afk this weekend, I stumble onto Fred's. Tee hee hee.

Catching up with an interview for "battery."

Hey Sharon I hope you don't mind that I took your turn this morning. You can post tomorrow in my place if you want. We do not have to change the order of anything, or I can post another topic.

Yup. Spee.


I say spee.

I wasn't intending this to be so short. Even worse, it really did take me ten minutes. A little bit of nonsense parallel uni-verse, inspired largely by this.

Bah. What does cereal know?

My favorite bit of consumer product advice, I think, was "Sorry go to for fun". I kept thinking, "aw, c'mon, don't apologize. I'm sure can't be that bad.

margaret: positive, or confident?

of course we'll play again. their demographics indicate as much. but by beginning with "please," they seem to have given us a choice.

(if you can't tell, i just got back from seeing the matrix reloaded)

But remeber, Sharon,If one is taking advice from consumer products, the Pepsi Co people are so much more positive:

Please play again.


Fred, do you really need to ask me that?

It's a fair sight better than the other one. Groggy, rubbing a knuckle against my eye, vulnerable and susceptible, I read from the Life cereal box, of all places, "You are not a winner."



Wow. The spellchecker that Blogger uses has a French setting. It'll turn all yer cliches into clich├ęs toot sweet. Nyah nyah.

Your cereal boxes talk to you often, do they, Sharon?

I had an idea for yesterdays topic that I did not get to, so this sort of addressed yesterdays and todays topics.

Sigh, well, that story didn't work out as well as I'd hoped. May just be too broad for 10 minutes.

Note: Mine is only slightly fictional.


Yeah. And I did two today. hee hee. I like the clacky one best. Ooooo, Analog-Anti-Techno-Sexy.

You're weirding me out, Ben, with your punctuality.

Sunday, May 11, 2003

Hey look it's back. And may I just say eeww to your backdated post.

Hm. What happened to my topic assigment algorithm? Dunno what caused the hiccup, folks. Roll with it, I suppose.

Back-dated for Friday.

Thursday, May 08, 2003

*smile* Yeah, I noticed that, Ben. I thought, "Woah! He's stalking me." And you took exactly 10 minutes. I am most impressed.

Wednesday, May 07, 2003

Hee hee. That's how it oughta work

Tuesday, May 06, 2003

Catching up.

Thank you, Margaret. This was not the most pleasant of winters, and it's one of my main reasons for wanting to leave Pennsylvania.

I had fun with the poem, though, and spring finally seems to be holding.
