pathetic

So, April's almost over, and this post here is number 11. It is the fourth non-quote post. Out of 11. This is just sad, really. I mean, I realize that I havent much to say these days, but still, you'd think I could do better than this. It's almost enough to make me return to posting haiku.

Not that it would matter, since no one reads this anymore anyway.

Which is not, by the way, a sad plea for responses saying, "oh Dave, of course we still read you", because I know you dont, not much anyway. I still have Sitemeter, you know. And it's not like I continue this blog long after blogs have become the last Last Great Thing, two or three times removed, because I need feedback. Honestly, I dont know why I keep going with this thing. I just do. And shall.

lsakdrhbrljalgjasljgprwswvvladagjlasd!!!!!! (visualize me waving my arms in the air while waggling my tongue around)

That is all.

Finally, a chart for anyone who might wander by, because I think it's funny.

quote for the day

"Keep it in mind while we review what it means to live in a civil society.
Murder. Violence...
These are things. They exist.

Then you have ideas. Justice, ethics, morality... our law...
These exist because of us. Because we want more than a life defined by murder or violence."

quote for the day

"I do not know. I have never met God, nor has any other ghost.
I honestly believe God cannot spare a moment for the petty antics of the human race. I cannot speak for you, but that is precisely the type of deity I want in charge of the universe."

quote for the day

"Something I've been thinking about lately is how the difference between one and zero is greater than between one and any other number.
I mean, like you could have any number of computers but only when the number is less than one, you cant check your email.
It doesnt matter if you have two houses or a six hundred, you'll always have somewhere to live unless the number is zero.
It's a more personal kind of math."


Karen Ellis
