Stupid Firefox, 18-inch graves, mad monarchs, urban exploration, luck, Myspace

May 20, 2007

What the heck?! I restarted my computer and most of the drop-down stuff in message fields is gone! This machine is really frustrating sometimes… *grumble* Today’s Upright Yet Truly Morbid Fact!

Russian postcards and Translink

January 29, 2007

Hey, I got mail today! Katya (katzk) sent me a Russian Christmas card, and a postcard of the Savior-on-the-Blood cathedral in St. Petersburg… how cool.

Salmiakki licorice, Russians, expired Starbucks, Aberdeen dream

January 16, 2007

Hey, I got some salmiakki licorice courtesy of Taru (sinnarn) in the mail from Finland! From what I hear of salmiakki itself, it tastes very weird… hmm.

Windchill / Rare Disease Dream / Serial Adders

November 27, 2006

I can tell you one thing: if the windchill is going to make it -19° tomorrow, I’m certainly not going outside and dealing with ice! In retrospect, going to church yesterday might not have been so bad, but at least I haven’t looked like a total klutz and slipped / fallen on my butt yet! […]
