"Well, art is art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And East is East and West is West and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste more like prunes than a rhubarb does. Now, uh... Now you tell me what you know."

~ Thursday, August 14, 2003 ~

You know, "previous" and "precious" are only one letter apart. Likewise, "next" and "newt". I really like the idea of having enough entries on my blog to be able to put "precious newt" at the bottom instead of "previous" and "next". Of course I'd have to change the formatting stuff for that...which is really quite simple, or would be, if I had taken any CS classes at all. (Hi, Graham. How are you?) Maybe I should rename my blog. Welcome to the land of the Precious Newt. And C and V are even right next to each other on the keyboard. Likewise W and X, in the alphabet. I think I hear a Twisted Title calling me. (Yes, it's a Cal Berkeley thing. I know, boooo, hissss. Whatever. That magazine has been delivered monthly to my parents' address since before I can remember, and I credit that page with my love for wordplay. Not that it was necessary, but it's certainly sufficient. "1000 Words" in the Stanford counterpart has nothing on Twisted Titles.)

MSN's sidebar is advertising 15% off all memory. I kid you not.
[Dammit, Gladys, why can't I ever remember the ends of these stories? Oh, yeah, now I remember, it was because of that...that...er...what was I saying?]
