Halley's recent posts on Alpha Maledom have stirred mixed feelings in me. First, the exposure of trade secrets is somewhat unsettling; second, I have a deep-seated urge to find, hunt down and kill the informers; and third, I NEED to direct about half of my friends to read this stuff so they can stop pestering ME. Now if Halley can get up some posts about Alpha Females to take care of the other half... Tunes: "Skokiaan", Louis Armstrong.

Having recently read certain of the works of Corey Doctorow (at the behest/insistence/demand of Dad), and I was extremely impressed. The science fiction and conspiracy theory-ism of Down and Out and 0wnz0red really struck a nerve, and I distanced myself for a short while afterwards, trying to come to grips with the plot twists and realities of the technology described to me. The first rational response I came up with was "Wow". The second, "I gotta get me some of that". In a Whuffie-based system I'd be much better off, not to mention the self-reparatory systems of 0wnz0red which I really want at th emoment as I have a sinus infection or something close. And should you read this, Corey, I'd be more than glad to try and draft you a screenplay for 0wnz0red. ^_^ Tunes: "Steve McQueen", Sheryl Crow; "Cruel to be Kind", Nick Lowe; "Mad Season", Matchbox 20.

OK I'm really sorry for dropping off the face of the planet like that. I'm sure I let down my faithful 15 or so daily readers, and I'm gonna put forth some effort into making sure it doesn't happen again. As a sort of recompense, and also because I'm sleep-deprived and a little buzzed for some reason, I feel like being reckless and so I'm going to break news here that is exclusive. I haven't even talked to my parents about it yet, mainly because they're asleep, like I should be at this ungodly hour, but there's no way I'm getting back to sleep now. Anyway, I'm getting sidetracked. The important theme of to(night? day?)'s blog can be summed up in four words: I met this girl. Reality check time. I didn't physically meet her, a somewhat pushy mutual friend tried to set us up over Instant Messenger, and had I been coherent when she started I probably would have told her to not even bother. You're a dear, Aurora, but your judgement is sometimes foggy in these matters. However, after a little sugar and some death threats on Aurora's part, this girl Rachel and I started talking and the rest, as they say, is history. (I actually don't like that expression for some reason but I just can't help myself.) Now, all that really happened was we got to know each other and we had a nice long talk into the wee hours of the night, and I'm probably going to have to have a long talk with my parents, but I'm confident that I'm on top of the situation. If it develops, that's fabulous; if not, I'll have another friend and I'm no worse off than before. There will most likely be more on this subject later on. I'd like to apologize again for my absence, and promise that I'm going to try very hard to get in at LEAST two or three postings a week. It's good to be home. ^_^ Tunes: "Then I Met You", The Proclaimers; "Lifetime", Maxwell; "One Wild Night", Bon Jovi.
