6/30/01 a work of fiction

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Incredible. It’s the last day of June, and Minnesota has failed to pass a tax bill and seven spending bills.1 What this means is that, unless something miraculous happens tomorrow, the state of Minnesota will shut down for the first time in its history. Incredible. It’s the last day of June, and Minnesota’s legislators managed […]

6/27/01 faux temporal paradox

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Oooh, boy. Mr. Nice dances [and for some reason, I laugh]. Courtesy (?) of memepool. On a site like this [www.gohlkusmaximus.com], the dates on which I update the site tend to lose meaning as time passes. That is, as our distance increases from the creation date of any given entry, so does the relevance of […]

6/21/01 two firsts today:

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I donated blood for the first time in my life. I fainted for the first time in my life. Fainting is a frightening phenomenon. Right after donating, I felt basically okay. I sat up, stood up, walked about 12 feet, grabbed a bottle of water, a packet of cookies, and a Coke. I sat down […]

6/20/01 pirated sites

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Hmm, how’d that happen: The web sites of Shasta (soft drink manufacturer) and Furby (crappy toy) bear a strange but undeniable resemblance to each other. This is not to say they don’t both suck. * * * Broadband rocks. * * * No real movement yet on a state budget. But I did get an […]

6/18/01 bad haiku

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Sheesh, what got into me? I’ll tell you later. Of Montreal was incredible—again, more later. For those of you who require instant gratification, here’s a site that consists only of user-submitted bad haikus. What a great idea; it’s made for me, really. I’m commemorating 50 years of computing by getting broadband tomorrow. Yay! Let’s see […]

6/15/01 bad mood rising, or, “I’m so pedantic”

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Cripes, you wait 2 1/2 weeks for this joker [me] to add a humorous and inspired snippet of wit and social commentary, and all you get is fact-checking in a routine news story about baseball? Read the article (or at least the first four paragraphs), and then come back. Okay, notice anything? I’m really impressed […]
