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!)

This is the crazy vintage metal desk I've been telling you about.

The typewriter is also new.

As is this pencil sharpener. Giant T-square not pictured.

Last night I had a dream that I fought Death and won. I took his scythe as a trophy. Then an old friend I've grown apart from showed up, armed with a big kitchen knife. She attacked me, and I couldn't bring myself to fight back, even though I could've dispatched her easily (with the giant blade that up until recently belonged to the GRIM REAPER). I couldn't even defend myself, and ended up getting stabbed repeatedly. She wore a demented smile the whole time.

1. I just had a moment of panic because I went to the mirror and realized that I look like I'm 25. Jesus fuck.

2. Where in the holy hell are these mosquitoes coming from?! It's the middle of winter for crapssake.

3. Expletives comprise about 50% of the text of my posts, don't they?

POOP or WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS: Last week I stepped in poop, didn't notice until I got to the office. Cleaned and washed the poop off, shoe still smells. Yesterday, I noticed that I must have tracked it into my car, so now there's poop IN my car. And tonight, I drive to the Mission for a slice of pizza and when I get back home I smell something. There's poop all over one of my wheels. More precisely, there's a coating of poo spread over the entire wheel-well. wtf. WTF!!!

Last night I had another sisyphean dream. It was slightly interesting, the form it took. I was staying over at a friend's house, we'll call him cranky user, and he and his friends were waiting outside in a car. I was changing to go out, putting on a pair of jeans, but they weren't mine. I tried on another and another and they were all the wrong size or color. For hours I kept trying on jeans and they got harder and harder to put on and take off.

My dentist is a crook and the insurance company isn't paying any of my dental claims. I potentially owe thousands. In other news, I could drink nothing else but (good) orange juice for the rest of my life and be happy.

Ack. Everything I brought to Vegas came back smelling like ass. Actually, ass would've been better. All my clothes smell like the way a hotel room smells when they try to get out the residue of cigarette smoke with the industrial version of Febreeze. Which is a close metaphor for most people's Vegas experience, it seems.

A winter hat for gamers : Katamari Damacy knitted hat. There's a market for this, fueled by Canadian sweatshop labor.

I just realized, after 7 hours of non-stop San Andreas (I've been in recovery from last night), that I am a gamer. This may seem pretty obvious to anyone else, but it has only just occurred to me that this is what I should answer when people ask The 2nd Most Boring & Stupid Socializing Question of All Time: "What are your hobbies?" (The 1st, of course, is "What do you do?") It makes sense. I spend an appalling amount of time playing video games, and I've invested over $2000 spread over two consoles. And this is only counting purchases since entering the workforce and becoming an "adult"; after all, you're supposed to play games when you're a kid, right?

The trouble is, I don't WANT to be a gamer. Even though games are great, and much more entertaining than TV or movies, there is still much more dignity in claiming practically anything else as a hobby. My mom, who collects state quarters, can ask me to help her find Indiana and Montana, and in the same breath tell me I'm wasting my life playing games.
