And the moral of the story is: don't get any version of Windows that hasn't been out long. It'll likely be full of bugs and not supported by anyone. XP Pro, by the way...god, I miss 2000, but I'm getting used to it. The option to use Classic view helps somewhat. I'm waiting for the voice-op systems ...

My friend Justin has a tattoo of bones on his back, as in the bones that you'd see if his skin and flesh weren't there. Not exactly fitting your criteria, as he's not a biologist or anything. He just thinks it's cool. Nevertheless, I wish I could find a picture. I cannot imagine the circumstances un...

I would generally place those stickers somewhere between Olive Drab and Chartreuse. Yeaaaah, it's the one that looks like the WIPTF cover. Dunno why I didn't think of that before...perhaps it's because I finally replaced my copy of it with a CD that my POS car CD player patently refuses to play? Gr...

Marry me NOW !!! ' NOW !!!' you say? I've waited nearly a year for a response to my post; you can wait at least a few days for my response to your proposal. So there. (teehee) As for Disturbed...this is the peril of paying zero attention to mass-market 'music', I suppose. But certainly there have b...

So, in addition to just being cool...

...my Long Winters sticker is magical! It was...what would you call that color? Brownish-yellowish-green? Arg, can't find a picture of it anywhere...anyway, after a year or two in my back windshield, it's blue! Light blue, kind of a cross between slate and powder blues. How sweet is that? Now that w...

Sorry it's taken so long, sorry also that the details are a bit fuzzy with the extra time. (Not to mention Jagermeister! Eric!) I had a bit of a road-trip after that, and just recently I've been dealing with the logistics of ending a six-year relationship. Excuses, excuses...I submit myself for flog...

my vote is with Sadder29 Me too; at least, it made me sad. Kind of angry, too. I'm sick of struggling to get by and constantly being berated for wronging some animal/farmer/etc in the process. It's not as though I have the means to research the effects of every fucking thing I do, nor do I have the...

Aw, thanks Liesbeth.

How's this for fun: my friend, who I'd thought I could stay with, got out-of-town family guests out of the blue, so I'm place-to-crash-less. I may well be leaving after the show to drive to Chapel Hill. E-fucking-gad.

Look out, Kentucky!

Oooooooh, Denton's awfully close! And folks I can drag with me, too...this may be too tempting to resist, damnit.

As for the singing...well, I don't know about that.

That's awfully kind of you, uh...sir? madam?...but considering I have to spend 8 hours getting there, my hunch is I'll arrive sometime around showtime. If you're wearing your tour-guide gear, though, I'll be sure to recognize you and say 'hey'. Or you could start yelling about Dune. Either way. Alte...

Fuck the time gap, this slays me: "Our stage show is more like the Comparative Literature faculty of the Experimental College being subjected to low-intensity electric shocks while 400 people shout out requests."

St. Louis 4/7/07

I just bought my ticket. I have nowhere to stay--I suppose I shall have to turn around and head back right afterward?--am in between jobs as of the coming Thursday, and am driving a car badly in need of an alternator belt. This week is gonna kick my ass, but I think it's gonna kinda rule as well. An...

WIPTF is, sadly, still MIA. Ultimatum is...um, in my house somewhere. TWYCDIH and PTDTB are sort of jumbled in a Target bag with the following: The Minus 5 - The Gun Album Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot R.E.M. - Reckoning The Young Fresh Fellows - It's Low Beat Time / Doc Sharpie Is A Bad Man Wilco - ...

"We're not subverting the dominant paradigm, we're just chasing it around the parking lot." Yeah, but don't you subvert it once you catch it? Or do you simply say 'Tag, you're it!' and become the chasee? Is 'chasee' even a word? And what if this parking lot has/doesn't have cameras? Does that affec...
