a link not linked . . .

I'm working hard. Really.
Wish I had time to post about everything. I could use a stenographer to help me out with all the thoughts coursing through me, and all the tasks on my plate. Luckily, it's all good!

blogging via im

I once had a fellow student give me this aphorism which i really like: the more competencies you have, the more deviancies you are allowed.

blogging via im makes it easy to blog and not get really distracted into writing something good. the downside is that it makes it easy to post meaningless drivel.

posted via Apple's iChat

So I just got home. I went to the old apartment and got some more old stuff, and the mail, etc. I am tired. It has been a long day.

I'm more and more impressed with AOL Journals. Integrating it tightly with AIM,, and the AOL Client is incredibly smart on AOL's part.

I really wish they'd let me add new moods.

Because my mood is *tired*.

Hmmm ... just noticed this:

(( Note: Journal entries are limited to a total of 2,500 characters. This includes spaces and invisible HTML that's used to add hyperlinks or change the look of your text.))

-- a disclaimer about formatting.

I tried adding [b] and [i] tags and it failed in Safari. I think the "edit" interface is hobbled in Safari.

You know, blogging by IM really is neat. But it makes it really easy to fill a blog with useless crud.

Also, the bot responds interestingly...

"hungry" is not an available mood type. Please use one of the following mood types instead: happy, mischievous, worried, silly, surprised, flirtatious, angry, ecstatic, frustrated, loopy, embarrased, hopeful, anxious, sad, quiet, or chillin.
