Murphy's Law

I got my new 40 gig hard drive installed today, and it's taking longer than I expected to get things back up and running.

For example, it appears that my hardware has a hard limit that the OS X system has to be installed in a partition no larger than 8 gig. So I've split the drive into 8gig and 32gig. That seems to be working, but it's very inelegant.

Now I trying to decide how to divide the stuff between these two volumes.

Gay men are close to one another by lust. They diverge after they (MOM ALERT!) cum because they don't have to say sweet words and pretend to want to cuddle like breeder men do. They just say "Good job, good sex" and go on about their day.

Note: Sherm's post often seem somewhat disembodied, so this one might seem no different. But in fairness, this one isn't his fault.

He was responding to a "comment" that's been deleted because it was "comment-spam". It was unrelated to anything in the blog, and was added only to advertise a product.

Oh god. How much of a weenie am I when Jack has to defend me. That puts me sooo far down on the weenie food chain.


You should reinsert the spam. Context is everything.

And I'm not so sure there's any real value in connectedness -- in orderly transition from one topic to another. Linearity can be boring.

I embrace my disconnectedness. I am that square peg that won't fit in the round hole. I am that monkey wrench being tossed into the machinery. I am the bad influence. I am the stitch not taken in time and I don't mind paying the nine. I am haste and I drink in the subsequent waste. I worship Jude -- not the actor although he was so good in that bath scene in TTMR -- but the Hardy Jude. I have always shaken it like a polaroid picture.

Do you understand now?

Good. Then my work here is done.
