I swear this looks like the beginnings of a faux hawk, and it’s just about the only one I’ve ever seen that I didn’t like, I think because it’s somewhere between reformed skinhead and that white guy from House Party’s afro:

Two tiny tigers

Wednesday, October 29th, 2003

Am I allowed to critique the fashion sense of animals? Hmm..

Coco hasn’t started wearing clothes yet (I can’t find a good fitting set of full leathers) but this will definitely serve as a cautionary tale.

The adopted life

Wednesday, October 29th, 2003

Wow that sucks:

And then, even as prosecutors say the four adopted boys in the family’s New Jersey home were being starved on a diet of peanut butter and plaster wallboard, the Jacksons were being evaluated by state officials for the adoption of a seventh child, a 10-year-old girl.

<evil>
Well maybe if they weren’t such bad kids they wouldn’t have been given up by their parents in the first place.

Eh

If I was Nelly I would not leave $2,000,000 worth of jewelery in my hotel room.

A thorough thief

Tuesday, October 28th, 2003

Weird article about a guy whose entire house was emptied out by thieves — including frozen peas in the freezer and his shower curtain — in broad daylight and no one has any idea who did it or why.

During cleaning

Monday, October 27th, 2003

I found my old cellphone while cleaning out my car today. I had left it sitting immobile in the little storage nook thing in case I desperately needed the number of anyone I was close with in y2k and have since ejected from my life. Holding it I was stuck by how alien the thing feels to me. I only upgraded in April but the old phone already feels outdated, crappy, oversized to me. I guess it’s just my hand being stupid because side by side they don’t look that different in size. I wonder how antique my v60 will look vs. my next phone.

New cellphone lust

Monday, October 27th, 2003

I played with a Motorola MPx200 today. What a badass phone. I really really want one, but Verizon for some reason lags behind every other company in releasing new phones. I guess I’ll have to wait until November 20something for number portability.

Spam in blog comments is getting out of control

Monday, October 27th, 2003

I would imagine that most users on this site don’t notice it, but people are using Scraightbloggin as a tool to promote their little spamy websites. What they do is post a comment to a really old post that includes a bunch of links to their site and related keywords. Google sees this as an endorsement of some kind and, through PageRank, their site ticks up a notch when someone searches for “penis enlargement” or whatever. This weekend alone I’ve gotten four or five posts of this nature. Blog comment spam is stupid and annoying and growing at an amazing rate.
