Patterns for Personal Web Sites Excellent content, and some really excellent presentation. I'm going to have to figure out how he did some of it, since suddenly my layout just sucks.
Turns out the rest of Mr Irons writings are just as interesting. He also has excellent taste in comics. He's even got an image of the best single issue comic ever. And his style is impeccable. No credit cards, no TV, no car. Damn. That sort of leads into his techniques for simplifying life.

Was the definition of 'garden gnome' really neccessary in the first paragraph of this article ?
Come on, where's the fire and brimstone for the folks driving vehicles designed to get under 20 mpg ?
What about the fire and brimstone for the engineers designing these mavels of cupholding technology ?
Woodland Ter., 600 block, Nov. 4. A person looked out a window and reported seeing a "small, possibly rabid, animal kicking its legs in the air." An animal control officer discovered a leaf blowing in the wind.

Yet another reason for me to eventually move to Takoma Park.
Maybe they could burn that ProdiGene-tainted corn for fuel....
I came up with a perfect vanity plate for my car.
It has the perfect mix of ecology, Northern Virginia Internet bubble culture, and Dragonball-Z, while at the same time, also celebrating the smallness of the vehicle. I even have a letter to spare ! Unfortunately, the Virginia DOT vanity plate website doesn't play well with Mozilla. I have to wait until later today and try some Windows browsers. And you dear readers, will have to wait until I get the plates and publish some pictures.
Unless, of course some fool has already taken the plates, in which case I'll update the post later today.
But I gave so many clues, everyone probably knows what it is already anyway. Comments are off for this post, so you can't blurt it out if you figured it out.
Update: The plates have been ordered. Expect pictures in about four weeks.

of its message and of its order to whatever it itself might wish or to the vicissitudes of the
prevailing ideological and political convictions of the day."
|You are Karl Barth!|
You like your freedom, and are pretty stubborn against authority! You don't
care much for other people's opinions either. You can come up with your own fun, and
often enough you have too much fun. You are pretty popular because you let people have their
way, even when you have things figured out better than them.
Concordia had a spontaneous town uprising last week after the assassination of a mayoral candidate. A candidate, who conincidentally had pledged to cut the town's paramilitary budget. Don't miss the poetic peacock paragraph !

Some Wendell Berry to start off the week, from
The Mad Farmer Manifesto: The First Amendment, which I couldn't find online anywhere.
Sorry for only typing in the last quarter of the poem, but I'm lazy slug tonight.
And I declare myself free
from ignorant love. You easy lovers
and forgivers of mankind, stand back !
I will love you at a distance,
and not because you deserve it.
My love must be discriminate
or fail to bear its weight.
