moving: closet zero

Wow. As I said on brightkite, I honestly never thought I would get to this point. My closet–after coming out of it–ended up being a catch all for just about everything else that doesn’t normally see the light of day....

spam: ARE YOU STILL ALIVE ???

A delightful bit of spam* seen while making the afternoon e-mail check: Attention Beneficiary: We write to confirm if there will be any response from any of your relations concerning what we just heard from a man named Mr. Paul...

race: what year is it, again?

Well I’m glad I don’t live in the NCO! Last Friday a liberal* Ohio blog, OhioDaily, posted a story about a North Canton, OH police dispatcher forwarding an hilarious e-mail from her work address. Here’s a summary! New “Air Force...
