Powdered Donuts

by meanlouise February 6, 2013 food and drink

I spent hours today crafting a post about professionalism and web-presence. Then I glanced at twitter and all hell broke loose (in my brain). I’m not, by any means, a fearless person. Still, I like to think that I don’t let any phobias control me, but I know that’s not true. I’m deeply, utterly, completely […]

Delurking Day

by meanlouise January 14, 2011 cyberculture

I’m a perpetual meme-failure so I thought last week was Delurking Week and I’d missed my opportunity to berate you all for not introducing yourselves or otherwise making your readership known once in a while. Plus, who am I to berate you about lurking since I’m often guilty of lurking on other people’s blogs instead […]

I’m following Erqsome’s book meme. When I copied & pasted the list I almost left her commentary because I so agreed with her assessments.

(No cheating!) 2) Turn to page 123. 3) Count the first five sentences. 4) Post the next three sentences. […]

L. Ron, the musical

by meanlouise October 9, 2002 culture

This post is part of the corrupted archives restoration and includes the old comments as text at the bottom of the post. Sorry if this is confusing. I can’t believe I’ve never seen this before. I’m wondering if I haven’t repressed it into the same far reach of my brain where I’m storing Bob Geldof-TV […]

it's all clear to me now…

by meanlouise July 24, 2002 cyberculture

and you thought I was crazy… People keep sending me the Hello Kitty Psychological Test. I finally took it. I am serious and very balanced and can always control my temper. You see, Hello Kitty thinks I’m sane. Actually, weirdly enough, that’s a pretty accurate assessment. Does that mean all on-line tests are true? I […]
