Scene from my quarters this rainy Tuesday evening:
President Bill is on my green screen; he's Stating the Union and for lots of it I've had the audio set to a different source but I just switched back and he just "...welcomed all Americans, whether their ancestors arrived via the Mayflower or space ships, at Ellis Island or LAX..." I had a bowl of roasted vegetables, fresh from the oven in my cast-iron wok, and I was eating them with clunky Chinese chopsticks (the real bamboo kind).
Interesting factoid from today's Salon: "GeoCities' member pages alone claim 8% of the content on the Web." Elsewhere an article in "Feed" about "Levi"s new `Truth' ad campaign almost compelled me to visit their site, but I suppressed that urge. You've probably, but I haven't caught any of their new ads, on television or elsewhere. Am I dangerously isolated?
Long talk with B today. She's got a new boyfriend, seems promising and she's glad there's been no sign of the previous one for a month now (he became a stalking nightmare when she let him go). The ease with which she finds new partners amazes me; she's suggested that I do a personal ad (something she herself has not done).
Y2K Spotlight"Time"s cover story: tried, but couldn't get into it - my reaction was "nothing new". If you're interested you can access it here. The better article might be the "Utne Reader"s - I haven't read that either but I like this recent "Salon" reaction to their "Y2K Citizen's Action Guide". (Says that "Culturally, Y2K could turn the long-simmering irony vs. passion debate into, literally, Armageddon.") And while I'm passing out Y2K links, check this one for humor. It's courtesy of my big boss in New Jersey, who has unfortunately entered that cyber-newbie phase of joke-forwarding.
G sends this image he shot at home with his new digital camera. Did I do that? According to my records this temari is #141, from October 1995. Its core is a golf ball, unlike the usual styrofoam. I stopped counting after #150 - production was way down then; it's practically zero now.
