Just like I commented here on a recent journal entry about why I didn't congratulate someone who graduated high schools, I said I follow Chris Rock's philosophy that you shouldn't get credit for something you're supposed to do.
Starting to do research for my second novel, and part of that is going to be putting up fake online profiles and ads and using the real responses that come in to sort of flesh out the world I'm looking into.
Sorry, that's as much detail as the general populace needs. I will say the novel is using this essay as its seed: http://www.jeffwalsh.com/2005/10/29/the-cuddler/
A line that was removed from my novel this morning:
"The media throw more softballs than lesbians."
Just amuses me, for some reason. Doesn't really fit in the book, though.
OK, back to bed now, so I can wake up soon to go to work?! There really has to be a better way than this, no?
I keep voting rich husband, but none shows up.
The spam filter on the site was acting up, preventing people from posting, commenting, etc., so I temporarily disabled it. So, you'll see more nonsense on the site, but I'll go through and clean it up, so just ignore it.
Three reviews on the front page, and I didn't write any?! I'm liking the looks of that, though it's sadly an anomaly, heh.
Gavin DeGraw canceled his SF show tonight, so now I have to find other things to do... probably update vegocentric.
Today was my first day as an extra on the set of the movie about gay rights icon Harvey Milk. "Milk" is being directed by Gus Van Sant, with Sean Penn as Harvey Milk, Emile Hirsch as Cleve Jones, and James Franco and Diego Luna playing some of the other roles.
So, the Oasis account on MySpace never really found its groove, and all it was seemed to be people requesting to be added, and people commenting me asking what was supposed to happen there, so... I just deleted it.
Until the spam filter issue is resolved, only registered users can comment on posts (not a huge issue, seeing that membership is free anyway. If you're concerned about maintaining your closet, just get a new yahoo e-mail to join oasis or somesuch).
Just had to sift through 7 pages of spam to find three legit posts, so that's not going to be worth my time, I'm afraid.
As many of you know, the spam filter has been out of control lately, so for now, I shut it off on comments, forum posts, and journals, which should free everyone but new users up (but a lot of spam engines know how to register new users, so I don't want that unprotected for now).
Just a note that my new site, vegocentric.com, has launched.
It will mainly be a site about vegan things, vegan news, vegan interviews, vegan cooking, vegan food... you might have noticed a pattern there. Basically, if you don't want to read vegan stuff, don't go here.
For all of the birthday wishes, on the site, in private messages, on myspace, etc.
Next year will be the really big deal... 40. Ack. :-)
So, today, I was off to the yoga studio to chat with the owners about their website. I'm working up the wireframe and getting the text ready before we hand it off to my friend to make it beautiful. End result: I never pay for yoga.
