Morbid Traitorous Bastards

  • Actual spam e-mail subject head: 'Spermamax improves your sperm integrity.'
    Is this an actual problem for people? Disreputable sperm? 'Damn, my sperm wouldn't be allowed in high society? If only there were something I could do... wait a minute, what's this e-mail?'

  • Tuesday was probably the most prolific blogging day I've had in a month. I think that means I don't have to write anything for a while.

  • I think it's funny how many people will tell me to be sure to see some of the rest of Wales. Every time I meet someone new and they cotton to my being Yanqui I get told "be sure to get out and see Wales."
    It's just an odd thing to say, when you think about it -- the idea that I've travelled 5,000 miles to study Welsh but need to be told to venture an extra 100 miles to go on holiday.

  • My dad on Thursday reminded me somewhat of what drove me to want to move here in the first place -- to get away from life in the U.S. media. He told me that someone strangely took issue with the headline of this story and then accused the website of being, "morbid traitorous bastards."
    Which is a really good name for a band, I think.

    Wouldn't it be nice if you could have "rollover" blogs? Like, if you go over so many words per day, they can build up and you can take a few days off from writing and not feel guilty about it?

    They're not supposed to make you feel guilty ... but they do anyway. We're programmed for it by that silly Work Ethic, methinks.

    Glad to see you back, and in fine form, too.

    Now that you're over there, do you read more U.S. Media? I mean, since we're over here, we usually hit up The BBC's web-site, or The Guardian.

    Oh thank heavens, could you please forward that email on to me? My sperm can be quite licentious at times.

    All my sperm are bastards.
