For those who don't have the time to read the whole sad story in Perl Bad, the short of it is: I did it.
Sorry, Susie. I will now go and feed myself to the sheep.

One day I will write the perfect post. Every word will be both a geek-culture reference and a literary allusion, and also a relevant link to another blog. It will form a perfect bricktext at 72 columns, with acrostics on both the left and the right. The post will be in the form of a sonnet and the entire thing will be a palindrome.
Also, it will make some kind of sense.

Blog of the Day is Tiger: Raggin' & Rantin', for his fine sense of grammar and his judicious use of language, as approved by 7 out of 10 alien species:
Anyone who is offended by my review of their entry, remember I am merely stating my opinions and they may not necessarily be the opinions of any other single person [on this planet, as I have been contacted and told that my opinions were officially adopted by an entire alien sub-culture in the Ming Sector and most of the species in the Gamma quadrant.]Tiger has a fine review up of the entrants in N.Z. Bear's New Weblog Showcase. If you're interested in Blogging (as opposed to just individual Blogs), or if you're looking for new Blogs to read, it's well worth the time to read Tiger's review and take a look at the Bear's showcase.
Well, the server seems to have utterly failed to melt, and Secret Project X is nearing completion. It actually seems to work, but needs a little fiddling before I unleash it on an unsuspecting world.

Light blogging today and tomorrow because (a) I am feeling blah and uninspired, and (b) I am busy working on Secret Project X. If SP X doesn't melt my server, it should be up for the world to see in the next few days. If it does melt my server, well, it's been nice talking to you.

Blog of the Day is Collinization:
So here I am, 22 years old with the house to myself for 10 days, and a huge bag of frozen peas covering my face. Of course the painkillers they gave me (which don't work) don't mix very well with alcohol, so I get to hear all my friends get drunk while I suffer in the darkness of the green giant's bounty.Scroll down to the entry Life tells me, 'Grab your ankles!', and after you read that, work your way upwards. (It's at Blogspot, so permalinks aren't very useful even when they work at all.) Make sure you put down any beverages before getting to Thank You Sir, May I Have Another?, as the management will not be held responsible for the consequences.
(Thanks to Susie at Practical Penumbra for pointing me to this one.)

Blog of the Day is Geographica, hosted by Mapchic:
Happy birthday to meOops, that was five days ago. Sorry, Mapchic!
Happy birthday to me
I’m still unemployed
And I have no money.
I have to admit that I am a bit sad that I did not get a chance to go to China and see the Yangtze before the gorges were flooded. I understand that it was a lovely region.Yes, and I wish they'd stop moving borders around and changing names and stuff like that! I just bought a new atlas and I'd like it to last at least a little while, thank you!
What I do know for certain is that this dam will render all previous physical maps of China obsolete.
The changes wrought by this dam go way beyond those of a simple new roadway – instead there will be a new physical map of China. A new lake (no name has been released) will be created it is expected to stretch for almost 400 miles upstream along the Yangtze. The flooded area will cover 2 cities, 11 counties and 116 towns.

Blog of the Day is Rob's Still in Japan:
As we got into the elevator to go to our hotel room, a Japanese family got in with us. The kindergarten-aged girl took one look at us, marched up to me and insistently held out her nametag. We weren't quite sure how to react.Make sure you check out his photo album too.
I looked at her nametag, and blurted out the first thing that came to mind: Aa, Minako-chan, hajimemashite! The young girl's face broke out into a huge grin, and she danced back to her equally happy parents.

Hey, it got my categories! Neat. Now let's see if it works...
It does indeed. Cool, very cool. w.bloggar: recommended by Pixy Misa. On the basis of three whole minutes of experience.
Susie of Practical Penumbra asks the question that's been on all our minds:
Ever tried to manage a movie theater on a Saturday night with only one concession register open and one of your employees stuck on the roof?Nooo... No, I must say that I haven't.
