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.

4-21-08  Archives
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!)

Well guys. I've had a good run. But it's over now. I just got back from the doctor. I had a blood test for diabetes because it runs in my family, and I got the results today. There is good news and bad news. I don't have diabetes. But I have what is analogous to high cholestrol (but with a different kind of fat--triglyceride). My doctor kept insisting that I must eat fast food and lots of it, and I think I've been to McDonald's once in the last year. Medical science can kiss my ass. So he tells me to stop eating red/fatty meat and reduce my intake of starches. And exercise! Bwah! I was about to say "the next thing you're going to tell me is to stop drinking!" but wisely decided to keep my mouth shut. And for a minute there I was actually considering getting up at the crack of dawn tomorrow for a jog and then rewarding myself with a nice big celery and parsnip smoothie but then he says "or I can give you some pills to take for a month and we'll see if you die."

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the more interaction I have with the health industry, the more convinced I am that no one knows a goddamned thing. It really didn't boost my confidence that when I went to the pharmacist she looked at my prescription and asked if I was sure it was right, as the dosage was all screwy.

And honestly, do I really need those last 10 years of my life? If you can even call not being able to continue my Sunday brunch routine of Champagne, bacon, and couch napping, "living."

Also, this is not an April Fool's joke, unless you consider my life to be God's little practical joke.
