1. Eszter is guest blogging this week on Lifehacker. Here I thought hacking into my life, in the sense of an unauthorized expropriation of my time by others, was a chronic but undesired phenomenon, but it turns out instead that Lifehacks are a good thing meant to save time rather than suck it away.
2. Oscar has unearthed yearbook photos of me and my betrothed. Doesn't she look precious? You can see why hers is my Blog Of The Week every week. And don't I have a debonair mien about me, especially with all that well-groomed hair?
3. Ang has now enabled comments on her blog, which she's using to advertise the inaugural post-Jeremy karaoke event for Madison Sociology. After Katy's departure, she's also added a new co-conspirator named "kef"; no word on whether "kef" is connected to the mysterious "kep" who was a guest blogger for a week on NinaNet.
4. Cabell, elite mix CD artist and fellow member of a different sort of Ten Percent Society, sets up a JFW Live Journal feed.
5. Gwen tells the "Be Careful What You Wish For" story. Interestingly, I had heard this story perhaps as many as ten times before, and even re-told it at least twice myself, but this is the first time I've heard it [sic] from Gwen herself. (Gwen also provides some interesting reports of how the men of southern Utah relate to women here and here.)
(Blogs, while regular companions of mine, have been an especial refuge from obsessive following of the news from New Orleans. I also spent some time tonight re-reading Confederacy of Dunces, which is one of my favorite novels and takes place in New Orleans, but that ended up being more depressing as I imagined how helpless its protagonist would be right now. Ugh.)
