Seeing as my dumb ass missed Angel again last night. . .
- D.C. Thornton can now be read at http://www.dcthornton.com/; those of you who like that sort of thing, adjust your links accordingly. Not an issue for me, since I don't.
- LIMBAUGH: Even this latest picture of a dog and a nude Iraqi -- you seen that one? A couple of Americans are holding -- it looks like German Shepherd, some kind of vicious big dogs, the dogs are barking, bow wow arf arf arf, this big dog -- you know and the Iraqi prisoner is cowering there in fear, he's all nude. And the picture caption "Dog attacks Iraqi." No, the dog isn't attacking anyone, the dog's on a leash. The dog is scaring an Iraqi prisoner. [gasp] "No! We're scaring them, too? Is that allowed in the Geneva Convention?! We're scaring then with dogs?" Yes, my friends we are. The dog didn't attack anybody. The dog's not attacking anybody. The dog's on a leash. Both of them are. I've seen the pictures. ...
- His bad. He later corrected himself. So, you know, that makes it all right.
- My bad. Wrong photo. No idea how I could possibly have made a mistake like that.
- I've mentioned my dislike for dogs, yes? And for white people who can't understand why on Earth I would have one?
- Yes, Virginia, you can use Gaim and Firefox with

And just so you know it isn't by any means all thorns: today's mail brought my annual PLR cheque. To quote from their site: "The Public Lending Right (PLR) Commission was established in 1986 to administer a program of payments to Canadian authors for their eligible books catalogued in libraries across Canada." The intention of the PLR Commission is to help compensate writers for royalties not earned because multiple people borrow the same book for free from public libraries.
Any of the librarians in the house know if we have something similar here in the States? My Google-fu fails me, leading me to believe we don't. And I'm fairly certain the people who loudly insist that file sharing is no different than using a library would have mentioned that whole compensation thing.
- That previous really deserves an entry to itself, actually.

- Book links up there to their respective All Consuming pages, which if nothing else lets you see who else is reading or has mentioned them on their sites. Not sure about the idea of online book clubs, as I'd thought books clubs were just an excuse to get drunk while maintaining an air of respectability. . .
And that's enough of that, I think.
