I realized that for some reason, there are always major things going on in my life that I for one reason or another fail to mention in my weblog. Why? Hmmm. Major things: 1) I’ve been buying lots ($$$$) of things on eBay. What? Not telling; don’t want to encourage people to bid against me.

Fun god! Sun god! Ra! Ra! Ra!

Funny thing I read today in a religious flamewar (christians against everyone else) on a discussion board: We want the fun god! We want the sun god! Fun god! Sun god! Ra! Ra! Ra!

A variety of fun links to check out

Google Technology run by pidgeons. Bin Laden arrested in New Delhi, India. (Psych! not true.) Dalnet to sell Bahamut ircd to Microsoft. AOL buying up the most popular weblogs. Can’t be true–they haven’t contact me yet. 🙂 BBSpot — now part of the MSN network of sites. Thinkgeek has the new “Wheatonix” software platform for

Liza Minnelli’s Wedding

So what’s the deal with people freaking out that Liza Minelli married a gay man? So? Her mother married a gay man. Her grandmother married a gay man. It’s a family tradition. Leave them alone. I think it’d be weird if Liza married a straight guy.
