Installed the Topicon plugin. Looks like it will work well once I've got some nice icons done. I'll need to fiddle with the size and spacing a bit, though.
Having re-re-installed Moveable Type, I realise that something was seriously screwed up at first and style sheets weren't working at all. No wonder it looked like crap.
To all the people looking to download Poodle Hat, I'd just like to point out that (a) it's not even out yet and (b) maybe when it is out, you could, like, you know, buy it.
On the other hand, if you're looking for Azumanga Daioh, it's on Kazaa.
Interesting thing, Sitemeter.

Blog of the Day is Practical Penumbra:
Many people have asked me why I called my blog "Practical Penumbra." (Actually, that's a blatant lie; no one has asked. But I'm sure a lot of people are wondering........ok, maybe not a lot. But I digress......).While I still think that Ambient Irony has a better sound to it, she's right about that alliteration. (It took me four tries to type that damn word correctly, by the way.) Maybe I should try a bit of that... Invidious Irony? Ambient Ambiguity? Hmm...
I have always enjoyed saying the word "penumbra". It is, however, a difficult word to slip into daily conversation. I have therefore always wanted to name something "Penumbra" for that very reason, but having no offspring (unless Frank decides to take me up on my offer to bear his children), and an adopted kitty who came with his own perfectly good name already, I have never had the opportunity to name anything "Penumbra". But just "Penumbra" seemed a little lacking, so, having long been a great fan of alliteration, "Practical" sounded like an excellent adjective.
Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
Blog of the Day is Friday Fishwrap:
I don't know why these made me laugh so hard.. I think it was the possum.This refers, of course, to Teen Girl Squad over at HomeStarRunner.
Note that the obligatory adorable kittens have all found good homes, so you're too late!

No, me neither. But Gnat seems to like it.

Frank J. over at IMAO discusses feminine hygiene and notes that any dead bloggers should redirect all their traffic to him. If I die, Frank, I'll make sure I do that.
Blog of the Day is Time For Your Meds!:
Cameron Diaz performed my surgery. Well, at least after I got the IV of Versed, she did. And she did it topless, folks. It was quite a show. Everything went well (how could it not?), but it was not without mishaps.Come for the kitties, stay for the awww, they're so cuuute rants.
