Bought a copy of Jane
Bought a copy of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey. I've never read it. Ya, don't hit me. But since I'm writing a review on cryptomimesis, and the author refers to it so much, I figure I'd better read it. And I'm looking for another cool book she relies heavily on, which I've not read... Abraham and Torok, i think, but my spelling may be off, and the cryptomimesis is in my office. It is worth getting even if it is just for the review."

News for all of you
News for all of you who care. Neko is not, at the moment dying of cancer, as the first vet said. She has a massive bacterial infection. I'm off to get special antibiotics. We were suspicious when online searches said that that cats with liver cancer stop eating. And she's eating 3-4x what she normally would eat. Thanks JOEL for driving us over to the appointment last friday. I'm off across town to get the drugs."

jasonnolan.com expires today. I've been waiting a year or so for it to come due. I was sort of pissed off that nothings been ever done with the site and most of the links don't work, and there's no content. But I don't know if I really care any more. $25.49 could buy a killer bottle of wine, or two movie tickets to see Amelie, or some cat food."

Catspaw/Kat had a rude celtic
Catspaw/Kat had a rude celtic awakening this smorning, ""That's when I remember: Saint Patricks Day. Ahhh, this would explain all the people in bright green. (I'm not very observant when I'm tired). And then I start noticing the people more closely: little yelling kids, old people drunk by 10 am. This holiday has just ranked on my ""Catspaw's Hated Holiday"" list along with Secretaries Day and Be Nice To People Day. More busloads of people keep arriving. Some wearing green t-shirts and some dressed, head to tail, in Americanized leprochaun gear. All right below me."" Yes, it is ""you can all be Irish for a day"" day. Not quite as famous as ""let's be WASPs for a day"" or ""let's be Iranian for a day"" or ""let's be Mexicans for a day"" or ... you get the picture. And there's something wrong with it. Join the team Kat."

Catspaw, on ICQ said, ""I had a dream last night that Achieve (which was represented as an apartment building) was burning to the ground, and we were trying to pull $things and $rooms out of it as quickly as possible so that they wouldn't burn, when suddenly we figured out it wasn't a real fire - it was that someone had left a program running too long and it caught fire."" Jason said nothing...."

Just another reason why a)
Just another reason why a) maureeen should blog more, and b) why I should read it more often. re-creating In this state of mind m more than usually receptive to Ursula Franklis talk about silence as a common good and as something other than merely absence of sound. I like her characterizing silence as an enabling environment. Among the things it enables is the possibility of discovering and attending to ons own thoughts. Is interesting, too, to think of it as a kind of space, an opening for what Franklin calls ""the unprogrammed and the unprogrammable not a bad description of what I hope to encounter when writing a poem."

Fuzzy Blogic :: The Journal
Fuzzy Blogic :: The Journal of Jacob Shwirtz:# 25 on Daypop. Jeez. Never thought that would happen. Always been more of a Blogdex man myself. Pretty ironic that the specific blog where I blog about bloggers blogging about blogging gets blogged by bloggers blogging about blogging and is what gets me into blogdex and daypop.
To which I say... It should scare you? What scares me is that the first thing everyone does to a fairly non-hierarchical publishing environment (blogs) is to start generating hierarchies. With media profile folks in the centre. Then they run the agenda on the meta-topics of ego-inflating intertextuality and whatever else meets the cool quotent. What am I saying? This happens with any media. In fact, I that's probably the purpose of new media... to let a new group float to the top... oh, never mind. Nice colours on your blog."

In fact, it can operate as an external drive, booting up a machine and running applications."
