Composed on the 20th of March in the year 2012, at 10:55 AM. It was Tuesday.

There will be some real essays up shortly; been a bit burnt out after the book. In the meantime I want credit for coining this term:

Spilchking, v.: The act of typing in gibberish to make sure your spellchecker is working after getting “bourgeois” right on the first try.

Go ahead. Your monitor will be fine.

Hi there! You should totally go buy my book for the low low price of 6.66! It's like buying me a beer at an out-of-the-way dive bar in Brooklyn! Not in Manhattan. Manhattan prices are ridiculous, though there are a couple of decent Irish dives where you can snag a drink for five bucks. Otherwise, you're looking at a two or three book beer.
