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 was over a lady-friend's apartment recently, where I found a copy of a book by a screenwriter and consultant to Sex and the City (and this was a call-out on the cover in much the same fashion as the foil embossed faux stickers one would expect to find on a Pulitzer prize winning novel), titled "He's Just Not That Into You: The No-Excuses Truth to Understanding Guys". On the cover of the book is a photo of an answering machine with no messages on it. I have several observations about this, but before any of that, all I needed to know about the book I read in large consolatory letters on the back cover. It went something like this: "If a guy really likes you, there is no such thing as 'too busy to call'. If he's really that busy, calling you would be the one bright spot in his day." Ok. Reasonable. So... why (as a hypothetical female) would I ever need to buy this book? I read it all, in less than 3 seconds. And then it hit me like a metric tonne of bricks--this book about understanding men gave me a startling insight into women, and my future career as a writer of relationship advice books! All I need to do is follow the spirit that made Sex and the City so beloved, and latch onto every woman's innate and inescapable self-loathing and PROFIT! The other interesting tidbit is that there is an abridged version of this 176-page epic Times bestseller*, filled with "bite-size mantras" for the busy, on-the-go woman.

And finally, my two original observations: a) duh b) the reverse is equally true; if a chick suddenly stops calling you, guess what, homeboy. Like I keep telling you, if there's any doubt, there is no doubt. Unless you're paranoid and/or have low self-esteem, in which case all bets are off, and you should buy my forthcoming book: "How To Make Sweet Sweet Love: A Relationship Guide For When All Else Fails".

*No, really. It's a New York Times bestseller. My jokes write themselves: it's called 'reality', folks.
