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.

1-14-05  LJ images
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 somehow knew this was going to end up here. I'm glad I'm appropriately inoffensive.


dkuo: that mouse is going to DIE
obikwon: what are you talking about
dkuo: I came home tonight and there was a cute fuzzy wuzzy little mouse running around in my room
dkuo: and I'm going to wring its adorable little neck
obikwon: that's crazy
obikwon: are you seriously going to kill it?
dkuo: what am I supposed to do, have it over for tea and cucumber sandwiches!?
dkuo: YES I'm going to kill it!
dkuo: and I hope it burns in hell!!

dkuo: that mouse's ass is MINE
crankyuser: where in your room
dkuo: why does it matter?
dkuo: behind the tv?
dkuo: right by where you were sleeping
crankyuser: great
dkuo: you have rodents in your building; you just haven't seen them
crankyuser: they're good about that.
dkuo: yeah that's why I'm so pissed
dkuo: we had an understanding!
crankyuser: ha

dkuo: they didn't have the inhumane traps I wanted
dkuo: the glue traps
crankyuser: i heard those are good
dkuo: well, it's like being an evil villain
dkuo: "Do you expect me to talk, Dannyboy?"
dkuo: "No, Mr. Mouse. I expect you to DIE!"

My camera blinked out 15 minutes into the hike, so I didn't get the really impressive shot.

Do you have any idea how disappointed I was when I found out that the world's longest poop was not real?

Damnitall, never have I wished there to be a White Castle in California more than I do right now.

In other news, I really need to find another hobby.

how did that....action/thing... get that name? I mean...what's wrong with people.


You've never seen it..?

This reminds me of the fad in Japan of hitting people and then taking their picture with your camera phone. It's like candid camera, only without consent forms.


I think this link was especially humorous for me, because I don't know anyone who hasn't seen goatse.

Coworker A and I were discussing this in the company of Coworker B, who didn't know what we were talking about.

Coworker B went back to the hotel that night and googled to her horror. What I would've given to seen that in person. Ahh...


Best use of Flickr EVAR: photoset of people seeing goatse for the first time (with cameo by Ron Jeremy!). Holy CRAP, did I laugh. SFW: Does not contain any actual goatse.

Today I had parmesan topped asparagus & garlic roasted brussel sprouts, a BLT, and a hardboiled egg, sliced and generously salted & peppered. For some reason this felt like an accomplishment. Incidentally, the BLT is the only sandwich that I will accept mayonnaise on (I'd much rather have butter). I blame this on what passes for 'mayonnaise' in this country.

What the hell happened to that car?



As far as I can tell, a tree fell down on it. There was still some broken glass on the ground, so it must have been parked when it happened, and you can see the sidewalk bulging where the roots must have pulled up.

Otherwise, I have no idea...


Was this picture taken on Staten Island? I saw this happen to a car in my neighborhood a while ago. Hate to wake up in the morning after a night of drinking and see that!



Nope, this is in San Francisco. I haven't lived in SI for a number of years now. It's been really windy and stormy the last few weeks, which usually brings down some foliage.



Someone just had a...

...very bad day.

All you had to say is "I'd like X food tonight, instead of Thai" Dont' blame me T___T


This post was written this morning, long before I knew you were even going to be in town. Synchronicity.

Dinner was really good tonight. See, when it comes to Thai, I just need someone to order for me.


I think soft-shelled crab is one of the best foods ever. Evar. Evrrrr. Vrre? Anyway, what other animal comes naturally pre-wrapped in a delicious, crunchy shell? If we ever figure out how to genetically engineer them to grow batter (and possibly be so chronically depressed that they deep-fry themselves) they will be UNSTOPPABLE !

But more seriously, I think all you need to know about someone can be learned through their eating habits. I find that I don't hold in high esteem people who say things like "I'll eat anything, except for XYZ", where XYZ = whole categories of food. This applies to vegans as well as people who won't eat sushi. This is not to say you shouldn't have preferences. I don't like Thai food*. And by that I mean, I don't crave it. But I don't have the culinary output of an entire culture blacklisted, because I know what I've experienced so far in life is only tiny fraction of what's out there. And that makes me happy. I think those that deny themselves are actually pretty arrogant in their worldviews.

And I find that the ethical arguments for dietary self-flagellation are mostly red herrings (you can be an ethical omnivore, and this takes a similar level of effort as being lacto-ovo-macro-whatever).

Add.: Regarding Thai food, I recognized later that very day, my real problem is needing someone experienced to help me order.

It makes me so happy that you wear it at all.



You're only saying that because you've been sipping the sizzurp


In 2006 I resolve to stop wearing my ring on the wrong finger. Speaking of which, is someone getting married, or is that just a lot of rumor mongering?
