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!)

Check out what I've been browsing: FURL.net bookmark archive. Not much commentary, relevance, or sequitur—but it's what's keeping this blog from turning into a meme dumpster.

this explains why our plants aren't doing as well...


So, how is it?


I'm just trying to keep it alive! It's not going to fruit for a while...


me: my miracle fruit plant is here!
Emily: whaaat
Emily: that was super fast
me: now I need to make my apartment hot and humid
me: if you know what I mean
Emily: i.e., take off your pants?
me: that's the step 1 of all my gardening plans

I tire of telling this story, so this post will be half-hearted. Whatever! Maybe you should involve yourself in my face-to-face life rather than reading about it on the webs!

My car was broken into this weekend, and the thieves took $15 worth of kitchen supplies I had picked up from Sur La Table. Completely ignoring the $350 iPod that was sitting out in the open. People don't take any pride in their work these days.

So I need new glass for the window they broke. There are none in North America. It is being special ordered from Germany.

re 2: it will be good for the bartender!! :)


I've lived here for less than a week and already I've been there 3 times. I need to pace myself...


Argh! 4 times in a week and a half!



1. In my enthusiasm, I may have neglected to think about the physical logistics of deploying 7+1 speakers in my modest living room before clicking on 'buy'.

2. Living so close* to one of my favorite bar/restaurants in San Francisco is not going to be good for me, my liver, or anyone.

*I've moved! If you didn't get my announcement email and want my new address, let me know.

I think the guys who think pregnant women are gross are kind of like the guys who can't eat meat unless it's been processed into a nugget. On a side note, it's a good thing I don't have titles attached to my posts, or else you'd all be subjected to a too-clever-for-its-own-good carne/carnal pun.

As I was falling asleep last night, I was thinking about an old epiphany--that people who like you will like you regardless of what you do. This has comforted others, but always faintly tasted of resignation to me (there are those who are really good at blinding others with love). But then I thought about it some more and realized that it is the things you do, that make up who you are. And that is what they love (or hate).

And so my new year's resolution: to get my actions in line with who I want to be.

Happy New Year, folks.
