a fortune teller once told me it was my lot in life to be surrounded by 'women on the edge' ... it has been true so often, i tend to immediately go into 'healing mode.' i did it last night, and now i'm laughing at how far off i was. the cape and tights go back in the closet ... (*guffaw*) ... ma gavta la nata ...

yahoo via geeknews: metallica's interview. some choice napster quotes.

we haven't heard from andrea in quite a long time ... for her. probably her thesis. she must be getting down to the wire now ... you'll do great, kiddo.

waterloo wide web.

so, i'll go dig around and find a bit of linkage. i'll be boycotting my net connection later, in order to finally finish up my taxes.

went to the o'keeffe museum last night, to see 'view of the city.' i still say, there are no skyscrapers like the chrysler building. i'm a member of the cult ...
