from a particular line of canned veggies. It actually took months of
persuading to remove them because Edgell could not understand what the

remaining dull for long though .. i'm still a little convinced you're really

a while ago, someone mentioned to me that the eventual blog had become very much about my moods instead
of links. so i made an effort to go back to links and less personal stuff. i
think i went too far, and now it's all links with very little commentary
about why i linked to that particular thing or what i think about it. but
what do you think? just links, or more commentary? let me know.

re: the florida ballot thing. no one complained before the

ballot probably cost gore the election. but, as i said yesterday, don't tell
