My week for collaboration as today's post was partially Garrison’s idea. He’s a big fan of the Many Worlds theory of time travel.

Yay, Ben! I'm so glad I could help.

And Bryan, I'm honored to have been a part of your schemes. I expect a full report (written in 10-minute segments) from both of you.

Oh man, Margaret and I are so going to hell.

Oooh, "station to station," that's an evocative topic. Cool...

You can edit posts, including their timestamps, by clicking on the "edit" link at the top of the post (in the Posts window within Blogger). Click the "Change Time & Date" checkbox, enter time & date stuff, click "Post & Publish." I took care of the sushi post for ya.

Oh BLAST. I meant to change the date on the sushi post

Dang. My shit's full of typos today. I blame lack of sleep.

As I catch up, I reflect that my employer would probably prefer if I spent only 10 minutes.

Wednesday, September 17, 2003

Mmf! I've got stuff to write, just no time!

Dancing as a metaphor for sex as a metaphor for murder as a metaphor for cooking. Yeah.
I gotta sleep. A'tick tock beep beep.

Oh! *sniff*

Ben? [applause]

Nice sound effects, by the way.

Hee hee. Ben, relating to your "one nation under goddess" post: everything old is new.

I'll admit: my first instinct on today's topic was not to post. I'm glad I did; that was fun. Thanks, Shawn.

I am so happy I am writing. Whoopee!
I'm unmentionably proud of this one.

I GOT MY INTERNET BACK!!!!!!!! Well, for a few days anyway. Grr. Stupid Comcast.

Someone stifled a sneeze.

"Hello?"
He said to the echoey room.
"Is anybody there?"
He knew they were. He could hear breath; the odd skitter of fingers across the keys; the flapping, slowly, of eyelids.

I'm writing. Just not on topic. I wrote a sketch today. We go into production on "Girls Night Out", the local sketch comedy show for which I'm a writer, in the next few weeks or so.

I know I share some of the blame for this, but 600 seconds has been really slow in the past few months. It's just more fun writing when more people write.

I dunno, at least ranting about recalls is writing.

Gave a great speech at Toastmasters today, telling the story of my trip to see the telescope. The story starts six years ago... ^_^

Shawn, it's an attempt to fool e-mail harvesting spam bots. They, unlike a human like yourself, hopefully won't realize that AT and DOT aren't valid parts of an e-mail address. I haven't seen a real steady decrease in the spam I get, but I suppose every little bit helps.

And I really wish my commenting system was working. Thanks for e-mailing your thoughts, though. I tried to import a new comment system this afternoon without any luck (or really any clue why I wasn't having any luck), so it looks like I'm without one until Monday or Tuesday. Anyway, thanks for reading.

Hey Fred,

I just sent you an email with my thoughts on the recall thingie. Didn't know if we, collectively, wanted such things posted here. BTW - Did you know your email address from your sight shows up using AT and DOT instead of @ and "." Pardon if this is an inside joke I'm missing. Anywho...

I was just about to let you know the comments on my blog were working again, Shawn...when they stopped working again. They might pop up again intermittently -- I managed to sneak in and leave a comment on Sharon's blog before the server failed again -- but there won't be any guarantee of them working properly until next Monday or Tuesday at the earliest.

Not that there ever was a whole lot of guarantee anyway. Out of curiosity, what were you going to chime in on?

And here I thought _I_ was paranoid.

Ok, I was way too busy to write yesterday (being Labor Day), but, tonight I will. You just see if I don't.

Pictures from the aforementioned trip will be posted after I re-educate my aphasic computer with things like monitor drivers, printer drivers, internet settings, and camera drivers.

More like internet worm, Shawn, but that doesn't really rule out a government conspiracy. I figure, OSes with inferior security models are allowed to proliferate, so that all the crackers go soft without the challenge of real cracking. Once there's nobody left who can write anything cleverer than a registry-editing vbs file attached to an email promising smut, then the government will unleash their real OS, impervious to the weakened strain of lackadaisical crackers, and take over the world.
