Hello person in Fargo

  • According to my wee stats thingy, someone in Fargo, N.D., checks this blog pretty regularly. Every time I see that IP address, I wonder if I know that person. That person should leave a comment.

  • Are you feeling a sort of general burnout as of late? Or is that just me? I am mentally worn down. Last night, I was so tired that I fell into a giggling, babbling exhaustion. You can hear me starting to come unglued on this Welsh-language audio post (I'm eating ice cream throughout the post).

  • I need to come up with a paragraph or two bio to go with some stuff I've written and I've hit a wall in trying to think of creative ways to describe myself. Any ideas?

  • I will be performing this experiment this weekend.

  • Boston's sidewalks of death.

  • Huh? Who would steal a two-legged cat?

  • Good name for a band: Jamaican Stick Fight

    Someone from Israel read my blog. Isn't that exciting! I always like to see what searches produce Fred's in Charge. I'm sort of addicted to checking the sitemeter.
    Maybe there's a 12 step program for that.

    hmmm you can say you're delicious and nutritional... and you come with glow in the dark message decoder.

    ...well you didn't say what you were trying to accompish with this discription.

    I was totally unaware that site meters existed until recently, and it has me a little worried that my initial excitement last year when I first started blogging might have been perceived as stalking. Live and learn, I guess. Thankfully I'm down to checking my list of blogs once or twice a day, rather than 20+. That was a bit excessive, I suppose. That's OK - I've embraced my freakishness by now!

    Oh my god. Stumpy. That is the saddest thing I've ever seen, even sadder than my friend who has a cat with one eye.

    Argh, isn't it ok to just look and not comment (I ask even though I am not from Fargo)? I've wondered about that. I frequently check this blog because it is a quick way to find out what my nieces are doing (like what's going on with Rachel, Toni getting engaged and Tamara being pregnant) without having to take the time to make phone calls, which I do make plenty of. And often you, Chris, are funny, rarely too serious except about yourself, and I'm in control - I don't have to worry about getting trapped with someone who can't read my body language that says I don't have time to stay and chat. All in all, I like this blogging thing and didn't realize that I was supposed to identify myself - sorry.
    In Germantown MD it's 36F, 13% chance of precip, and they generally don't give the humidity here or everyone would move away.

    I'm not entirely confident in stats thingys. The IP's of poeple that I know read my site don't appear at all while spooky ones in Motherwell (Scotland) and Gran Canarias (Spain, I think) appear instead....

    Plus, my IP is misleading - which is fine with me.

    Do you play the game of guessing who is who? I find that highly entertaining.

    How frigging soft am I? I'm weepy over the electrocuted dog and the two-legged cat. Jesus.

    Chris Cope said...

    Oh dear, Andraste. Maybe your recent medical condition really is menopause.

    I also have a huge desire to carry out that experiment with the soda and Mentos. Perhaps if we do it simultaneously, the earth's axis will tilt somewhat and make it warmer in Minnesota.
