out and about

I'll be out most of the day today. There are several things you can do while you sit by your computer anxiously awaiting my return (humor me, ok?).

You can go to my NaNoWriMo blog (Nationa Novel Writing Month; see sidebar) and make some suggestions for my preparation soundtrack.

You can go play with Kelley's sac. Which is not nearly as nasty as it sounds. In fact, it's downright sensual.

You can find out what's being done to combat comment spammers, which are different than trolls, but just as bad.

You can check out the newest carnival to hit the 'sphere: Carnival of the Capitalists, which is good for all of us capitalist pigs.

You can cast your vote in the Limerick Contest.

Or you can ignore me completely and just go about your business. Do so at your own peril.

Enjoy your Columbus Day and don't let the loonies bite, which is to say that I'm not going to go into a long rant about Columbus or his day or his discoveries, and even if I did they wouldn't be nearly as far-fetched and distorted as some others, but that today is a Monday and I don't have to work and that, in and of itself, is what makes a holiday special. And you're all special too.

And not in that helmet sort of way. Mostly.


Here's a good article by Kevin with tips on dealing with comment spam as well...

I am proud of my helmet.


Dammit, that Indymedia link got my BP up too high. I am honestly, completely, 100% baffled as to why freakniks like that hold such opinions.

Special like the Short Bus?
