pink grapefruit

“Sweet and tart at the same time, you’re bursting with sun-kissed goodness. If you were a song, you’d be “It’s a Sunshine Day” by the Brady Bunch — you’re just that perky and refreshing. That’s not to say that you don’t have an edge — quite the contrary. In fact, a little bit of sugar (aka gifts, praise, and other goodies) can always bring out your naturally sweet flavor. But when it comes down to it, you prefer folks who can match you in strength and independence. Luckily, that kind of attitude is appealing, so you always have ’em wanting more. Citrusy, tangy, and a little exotic, you’re a truly tasty treat.” — from What’s your flavor?.

insomnia strikes again

it’s apparently 2:33am and I’ve spent the better part of these early hours whittling down my email inbox from close to 60 personal emails to below 20. Some of you may think this is nothing — but — some of these go back over six months ago. I’m horrid, I know. So what happens when I whittle down my email? Inbound mail is spool’d and Moe is sleeping so I can’t kick him to unspool it. Murphy’s law #1.

As many of you may have noticed, is now up and running. however, while the main page looks okay, the archives and everything else i was salvaging from hasn’t been moved over yet. I’ve updated a few things on the premise that when i do the site redesign sometime this week, I’ll have everything up and clean. fresh start. what is even funnier is that is still getting massive hits but very few are trickling over here. which is fine by me i guess — i was getting disturbed by how people were finding me via my entries. what was interesting to note was that the NUMBER ONE THING for keyword that brought people to my site was “obsessive/compulsive/anxiety”. oh of course, sex ranked up there in the top 5, but i was just astounded by how many of my hits were coming from my cryptic discussions on the above diseases.

i am doing — okay.

that is about the only word i can describe at 2:37 in the morning right now. I’m on this mania high. my goal was to return all the email my cousins had sent me after my father had died (which i never did) and all the personal email in my inbox that i had not replied to in eons. one person (who thankfully has three email accounts) had his email bounce back to me twice (from two of those accounts). i was sitting there adding my “rings” to my brand spanking new yahoo id! (gotta love creativity — i refuse to have any “name” with numbers, underscores, hyphens or any other alphanumeric in it).

lately there has been this rash of “self-help” in the people who i know. everyone seems to be either sick, getting over themselves or making attempts to get better whether it’s physically, emotionally or just over all well-being. I’ve got five people using breathe-right strips after i told them it helped with me stop sleeping with my damn teeth grinding.
people are going to chiropractors, doing yoga and generally feeling more feisty.

the change in the weather has helped me calm down enormously. i no longer feel angry and when i do — it’s over something silly. I’m attempting to kid myself that I’ll wake up in three hours and be able to function.

but on the other hand, while i attempt to take a look at life and things around me (like noticing the sky the other night driving home and the sun filtering between the break in the clouds) or designs I’m seeing everywhere in nature, man-made and what not, slowly, very very very slowly; I’m starting to relax.

not much mind you.

but enough.

now only if i can stop eating Mickey d’s, my life would be complete.


some people collect thimbles, i collect domain names

I’ve bought 2 more domains.

if you are reading this now, you will now see that you are sitting at (or even though nothing points to that direction right now and probably will not in the future. however, for 10 dolla and fortytwo cents a year for registration, whose to bitch?).

the domain count is now:,,,,,,,,,

i really really think I’m done now.

If you think that’s bad, I came up with a list of all the AIM names I’ve come up with (and registered) over the years:
in reverse chronological order:

those are the ones i REMEMBER.

I’m sure I’ve also forgetting a few. probably. old age kicking in.

pauls also gone and finally gotten himself a home. of course, we had an argument on how to spell it.

if it were not for joker and a thesaurus, I’d be out of business.
