that figures
Damn you, Kevin of Wizbang! for putting the blog awards in the runup to finals week, I have all this crazy traffic and haven't been able to post for days. (What? I don't care if it is an end-of-the-year competition! The world needs to work on my schedule, dammit!)

Anywho, I'm getting stomped in the running anyway, as I had suspected would happen once people came to their senses. But it appears that there are actually some people other than me that voted for me, because I have considerably more than just my 1/day votes. So alot of thanks to my fan(s), I'm surprised and pleased. Also thanks to the 'Butchers and The Mudville Gazette for their endorsements, I don't know how that Llama-lanche didn't automatically deliver me the number one spot, but it's certainly apprecaited.

Also, I've gotten to know Army of Mom, Mixolydian Mode and some silly Pajama People in the course of the contest, so check them out while you're at it.

And if anybody knows of any good job openings in the Pgh. area for a computer science student, drop me a line, 'cause Monster is pissin' me off.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
