Morning, everyone. …

Morning, everyone. Well, I got a good, solid ten hours of sleep last night, so I'm going to have to stop complaining about being exhausted. Today is dedicated to finishing my Faulkner paper -- wish me luck! I actually think it's going fairly well, though I'm not entirely sure I believe my premise. :-)

If you haven't been getting the mailing list notifications for the past couple days, don't worry. The diary has changed servers, and it's taking them a couple days to get mail up. Your regularly scheduled notifications will resume soon.

Not too much else to report. My regular e-mail account is currently down for maintenance, and it's funny how much it bothers me not to be able to check e-mail absolutely first thing in the morning. What an addict I am...but I suppose, as addictions go, this one is fairly harmless.

I'll probably check in later today and tell you how my paper is going. Talk to you then...

9:15 -- no, I haven't started working on my paper yet. I have, however, done lots of other things I've been putting off. Most importantly for you, I've moved the stories page from the iam site to Mills. The traffic load was getting too high for iam -- so could you guys do me a favor? Check and make sure the link works, and let me know if there are any links you find on my pages that still point to the old page? Not a tragedy if there are, since I left a pointer up, but it would be good to simplify the route at least here. I'll keep looking too, of course, but the morass that is this web site has gotten so huge that it's sometimes hard to track what's where. I'm actually pretty sure there's a command that will let me find all the links to stories.html -- maybe I'll ask Kevin. He usually knows these things...

1:00 -- okay, okay, so I've only done a little work on the paper. Still, a page is a page, right? I'm about to go back to it, but I wanted to share this with you, from a mailing list I'm on. It was just too funny...


...from a listmember in Minnesota:

So, there I was (4/19/97) innocently looking for the comics when I see a picture of a leather clad dominatrix wielding a flogger on the front page of a major newspaper. (Not the major story, just a little picture at the top). So I turn to the appropriate section which promises more pictures. It turns out there was a public flogging to raise money for flood victims in MN and ND. Seven people with criminal charges against them agreed to be publicly flogged and viewers were charged admission. The pictures were quite disappointing. There was a better picture of the dominatrix and a picture of the crowd (about 1,600 people) cheering.

Welcome to quiet and conservative Minnesota.
