As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

I'm not sure why I thought of this tonight, but I suddenly remembered the first time I was hit on by a girl. I was 16, standing in the rain at a payphone on Broadway and 49th St., waiting for a call back. (From Marie, who never did.) She said I was the most beautiful person she had ever seen, and asked me out to a movie that night. I was scared. The first time I was ever hit on by anyone happened a few years earlier, when I was 10, in a corner store near Herald Square, by the man behind the counter. I was amused. The first time I ever remember making a move on a girl was when I was 12, in the movies, and she was 3 years older than me, which was huge at the time, so I didn't know if that was ok or not. I bumped into her again a few years later, on the Staten Island Ferry, and she asked me if I remembered her. I said yes, and continued talking with my friends. I did this terrible thing only because I was desperate to be nonchalant. In high school I had a lot of defenses, which made me seem alternately mean, confident, and terribly terribly bored--when in reality I was just scared. Today I remember that girl's name, and why I liked her. And the raised eyebrow that my snubbing had elicited from my friends, which even at the time didn't seem worth it. I want to be 10 again, amused, and have the run of 34th street.
