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!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

So a big part of why I write this blog is so I have a record of my life to go back to. I don't keep scrapbooks or shoeboxes full of pictures. This is more or less it. So I'm writing memories down before I forget for good. Looking at posts from just a year ago are very revealing, in a masturbatory kind of way. This does NOT give you fuckers free license to deconstruct my shit though, so I don't want any e-mail from people "who can save me." Unless you're hot.

Anyhow, Marie sent over some wedding photos today. No, she's not married yet (it's not even her real dress!), but they had some portraits done, as Chinese people will do. At the reception we will all be dancing under a huge, looming, Mao-like photo of the happy couple.

In addition to her "wedding" photos, she also mentioned that her mom, out of nowhere, pulled out a photo of us at the prom. Marie's not the first of my friends to get married. But. As happy as I am for them, it is disconcerting. I always assumed I would have years of hitting the bars with her as my walking evidence*, but not so. I am getting old.

But on the brighter side, they sure made her boobs look great.

*What is the term for this? You know, chick friends that you go out with in order to attract other girls. Like wearing a fake wedding ring, and/or a sign that says "I LOVE COMMITMENT & CHANGING MYSELF"
