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!)

Traffic today was caused by some hillbilly who affixed large billboards to his truck that read: "STOP GAY MARRIAGE! DON'T VOTE DEMOCRAT." I thought a moment, and pretty much agreed: if you're a busybody douchebag who needs to tell people how to live, yes, you'll probably want to vote Republican this year.
Don't be a prick. Kerry/Edwards '04

Obviously, my politics lean to the left so this won't come as a surprise to anyone: today, I am announcing my official endorsement of John Kerry for President. There are literally thousands of reasons why you will only garner my contempt if you vote for Bush next week. Here are 100 reasons facts (supported by links to source material), and one opinion: The Non-Arguable Case Against the Bush Administration

As it is getting cold in New York, sometimes you have to turn the heat on. What you don't have to do, is dance around your apartment playing air key-tar singing The Heat Is On before touching the thermostat, Eugene.

I like to watch ants. Fortunately there are ample opportunities to do so in my house. I am ok with that; they pick up after me, so I don't have to! It's really pretty amazing how such little creatures can exhibit the kind of collective intelligence they do. I saw my first ant traffic jam the other day, and was amazed. AW! SO LIKE US. Blah. The horrifying part was where the lovely ant-highway was leading: the trash can in the bathroom. Ugh. I don't know what is in there that they would want, as I am certainly not responsible for the contents. I'm getting squicked out again just thinking about it. Living with girls is AWESOME!! AHHHHHH

Google has just gotten me interested in SMS text messaging again: Google SMS

Phone book, business listings, dictionary - even price comparisons! All at your fingertipes (and tiny cellphone keypad.) Google has this way of making practical things even more practical...

When I got home yesterday, our mail slot looked like it wasn't feeling well, with letters were spewed all over the garage in a mass of paper vomit. This of course, meant election day was drawing near, as the mailman had the happy task of shoving 4 copies of the San Francisco Voter's Guide down our poor mail slot's throat, each of which is like a phone book. Well. White pages, anyway. Look, it's a thick book, ok? But that's not the point. The interesting part of this year's edition is a proposition on the ballot that would prevent what was originally known as Candlestick Park, home of the 49ers, from being called anything else. Naming rights were purchased by 3Com several years ago, and we've suffered through the indignity of "3Com Park." But that lease expired in 2001, and the city has reached a new (tentative?) agreement with a certain company for a $6 Million contract over 4 years, to be split between the team and the city. Now, normally, this would be a no-brainer: San Francisco is not for sale, $3M is chump change, corporate sponsorship killed my father and raped my mother, etc. BUT. BUT! The company that outbid Oracle, Virgin, Macromedia, is... Monster Cable! That's right, our park would be called... MONSTER PARK! And! The founder of Monster used to be in a band called Asian Wood! See kids! Local politics is "awesome!"

A recent comment by our girl Moxy regarding bathroom sex has inspired me to issue the following PSA to all my readers: Showering together sucks. All you've been told is a lie. Basically, one of you (me) is going to be cold, wet & miserable. And pressed up against even colder tile.

Of course, I need to qualify that. If you live somewhere warm, it can be bearable. If you have absolutely NO intention of actually getting clean, a few minutes of slippery fun is nice. But you ignore this final detail to your peril: water by itself is the opposite of lubricant!

I just got home from a weekend in New York (to see Marie get "married"), and as I walked into the bathroom, I notice that the sink is no longer mounted against the wall as it typically is at this time of night. Instead, it is slumped on the floor in a very un-sinklike pile. There is a note taped to this pile, it begins with "SORRY" and ends with "-Kellie." None of this however, comes as a surprise to me, and so I do what I've found is helpful in most any situation—have a stiff drink and straight to bed.
