Tracyl and pak pointed me 2000

Tracyl and pak pointed me to CIAC Internet Chain Letters. This is another good page to read the story behind the hoaxes that show up in your inbox.

Well, I appear to have 2000

Well, I appear to have recovered from my grouchy spell this week. *whew* I hate being all prickly. Those keeping track will be pleased to know that I've been to the gym twice this week. I'll probably go Sunday as well as tomorrow if my knee is feeling ok.


Still seems kind of odd to me, but I am enjoying working out. Still just riding the stationary bike, but you've got to start somewhere. Exercise and dietary changes and I'm starting to see the difference after only 2 weeks! There are good reasons to keep this up: Edmond idly mentioned this evening that he'd like to learn to dance. *sigh* What a dreamy guy! (Note: my tendency to think of him as dreamy is particularly high tonight because he fed me Hamachi Donburi. Mmmmm.)

Dang it. It's almost 7pm 2000

Dang it. It's almost 7pm and I'm still at work. I was going to leave at 5:30 and go work out and now I'm hungry and surly and I just wanna go home. Screw it. I am going home. I will still work out at least 3 times this week. Hold me to it, gang.



(Jeez, I'm really putting the Grrr in MetaGrrrl tonight. Sorry to anyone who got caught in the blast zone. What's the date? Hmmm, seems a bit early in the month to be bitchy. Must be time for dinner).

An open letter to every 2000

An open letter to every email service provider in the world:

Please, I beg of you, for the love of all that is good, make your new subscribers read Further Adventures in Email Tracking before you let them get any mail. It'll save us all thousands of dollars a year in network costs by eliminating the forwarding of 4 year old net hoaxes.

Thank you.

Salon's challenge was the origin 2000

Salon's challenge was the origin of those great haiku error messages that keep circulating via email. Enjoy them in their original glory with author names intact and read all about their subsequent anonymous journey to your inbox.

I say "Hi" to Carl. 2000

I say "Hi" to Carl. It is not really necessary for Carl to say anything back.


When you were younger (or unobserved) did you talk to the animals and things in your neighborhood? There was a loquat tree down the street from the house I grew up in. It would hang its leaves (shiny smooth front, fuzzy back) down in my face on the sidewalk. I'd say "Hi". I wasn't offended when it didn't say anything in return.

I like GirlHacker's New Year's 2000

I like GirlHacker's New Year's message. Thank you everyone who fixed bugs (and who coded right in the first place) and kept watch last night.

Well, Blogger is, as I 2000

Well, Blogger is, as I expected, Y2K compliant. Thanks, pb. :)


For all my curmudgeonly comments about mathematical accuracy, I actually think this New Year's Eve was more monumental than next will be. Since it's all arbitrary anyway, it does make more sense to celebrate the dramatic rolling over of the odometer. Welcome to the naughties, everyone! I welcome the new year, century and millennium and wish you all a wonderful time ahead.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
