eventual blog
dawn's virtual cornucopia of simple harmonic motion

looking for:
+ questions to answer on an "about" type page thing.
+ new name ideas. i am toying with the idea of re-naming the eventual blog. because i don't think i'll ever get around to any of the things that make it eventual. and i've been doing this since april, so the eventual is kind of moot.
+ any design comments or whatnot. i generally use ie 5, so if anything looks stupid or is difficult to read in another format please let me know.
+ contact info is over on the right. my name is dawn and my domain is gweep.net. an e-mail address is made up of name@domain. why do i do this instead of making handy e-mail links? just trying to thwart the evil spam-bots.


and if that isn't enough, then it takes the bat and starts whapping you over the head with it.

why the human race is doomed, case 8 in a series: christmas is being sued. do people have nothing better to do with their time? yes, of course, people should be able to practice whatever religion they want. [unless it involves inserting big slugs into gillian anderson's back. ew.] but does that mean we have to eliminate christmas? there is a point where political correctness descends to the point of ridiculousness. what will we be left with if we eliminate everything from our society that could possibly be construed as offensive by someone?

weird freeky moment: last night, i had to drive past the scene of The Accident for the first time since it happened. i was a little nervous, but i had to do it. the traffic wasn't too bad, and there was no rain this time. i was ready. i was prepared to face the silly fear of driving the exact spot again. so i did. there was a huge accident there. it looked fairly serious. there were 2 fire trucks and an ambulance. and i realized, i was pretty damn lucky.

went to passim last night for the end construction 10 year reunion concert. it was the most fun. and they played dogs run free.


michelle is pretty darn swell. she dug up these resources for me.

join us for the continuing adventures of brainiac 69 vs. the invincible dr. caprio! [i still think that an army of post-accident reeves would be scarier.]

part 4. apparently, there are a total of 8 parts. adcritic will be posting one a day. i must say, the first one was funny. especially the part where he looks at the photo. but they are getting kind of dumb. we'll see what the next parts bring.

ads for sonystyle.com have been pulled from tv. they involved kidnapping santa. you can view them at adcritic.com. part 1. part 2. part 3. i can see why people might take offense to them, but they made me snarf.

there is a poster out for david duchovny's new movie, evolution, to be released next summer.

lynyrd skynyrd has a christmas album?!? does anyone else find this a little surreal?

michelle mentioned that the page is easier to read in lynx since i moved the main table to the left. which brings up a good point: i use ie5 as my main browser of choice. so if this page looks stupid or is difficult to read in another format, please let me know and i will see what i can do.

in my on-going efforts to be a generally happier person and look on the bright side of things, i present a new feature at the eventual blog: what made my day. that's right, every day or few i will attempt to chronicle something that made me smile. as a sort of reminder to myself. or something. anyway, without further ado, i present what made my day, case 1 in a series. received over gweep: "it occurred to me rather out of the blue that you are both beautiful and wonderful and that perhaps no one has told you this recently .. and so i thought i might .. "

goddawnit! i was afraid i missed this. . . the troy victorian stroll. annie and the hedonists play there every year, and it is one of the only places you can see them.

looking for: an mp3 of dinah shore singing shoo fly pie and apple pan dowdy. found. thanks, andrew!

fox's official x-files site has a new mytharc tracker thingie that lets you map and cross reference the show. it's kind of funky.
