How do you measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee?
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife?
In 525,600 minutes?
How do you measure a year in the life?
-Links to good songs usually accompany Houseband00's posts--like his most recent one. These songs stir his memories. They mean something to him, and they inspire his blog entries. Some of the songs he features are new to me. Others, like Seasons of Love, I've heard before and loved but haven't listened to in quite some time. Hearing this song again made me all teary-eyed--but in a good way. I'm such a sap.
-Dan and Laura are going to be streetwalkers in June. No, not that kind of streetwalker, silly. This is for a good cause. They're participating in an event called the Overnight, and they'll be walking the streets of Manhattan (20 miles) to gather funds for suicide awareness and prevention.

-Why can't people all just get along? Maybe because it seems that there are more and more people all over who have abandoned things like consideration, politeness, and good manners, things that don't take any major effort to do and which would certainly make the world a better place. I've seen or bumped into my share of rude people; Marlayna and Kiyotoe wrote about some ill-mannered buffoons they've come across.
-Why can't all browsers just get along? It sucks when your site looks fine in your default browser but is all screwed up in another. My good buddy Prometheus, the ever witty wordsmith and geek extraordinaire, waxes rhapsodic on a tool for viewing a site in different browser-OS combinations, with minimum hassle. He's a cool cat, Prometheus is.
-Scott loves telling stories about adventures that he's had all over the world, but he's a bit concerned that these aren't enough to forge a connection with his readers. So he wrote a post that revealed personal stuff about him--some of them were a bit too personal, though! :-D But it was written very well, certainly a very enjoyable read. He tells his stories most entertainingly.
-Do you ever have days when you feel there's nothing you want to write about, despite the desire to write about something? I wish I could be as eloquent and as witty as Penfold when he has nothing to say.
-Dancing isn't one of my strong points, but I can certainly do the Saturday Night Duck Face, which Iz describes in this post. You can do it too, and you and you and you. Heck, you've all probably done it at one time or another. Iz doesn't really like doing it--especially on crowded dance floors, but sometimes she's forced to.
-I'm not a big fan of horror films; I can barely sit still and get through a suspense movie. But I absolutely enjoyed the video that Beckeye posted some days ago on her site. It's a reinvention of a classic. I applaud the guy who made that clip, I thought it was terrific.
-Ever wonder why the grass is green or why the ocean is salty or why cats land on their feet? Wonder no more, because Mr.
-To the men who read this blog: are you familiar with a holiday known as SBJD? If you aren't, head on over to Elizabeth's Lil Bitch blog for some tips. And ladies, take some time to read it, too. There's ample time to prepare for next year's SBJD. :-D Elizabeth can be bitchy, but she isn't a bitch, really--she gave me some tips on how to roll up my links. And I like the way she writes!
-Wishing everyone who celebrates Saint Patrick's Day a fun-filled day and night! Here's a little holiday picture for the ladies, courtesy of Morgen. Straight men need not click the link. If you'll be carousing tonight in the name of Saint Paddy, drink some green beer for me, will you? Sláinte!
See you guys next week. Have a fantastic weekend!
