Consider the noble kiwi

Comments

I’ve been meaning to revive neonepiphany.com ever since rescuing it from the evil phishermen, but the thought of trying to bring my Movable Type templates into the twenty-first century is filling me with ennui. Am getting an inkling of what the folks who are just now going “DTV transition what?” are feeling right now. My immediate reaction to this feeling of technological middle age was to run out and acquire some web 2.0 bling — spent far too much time linking up all my various GTwitBookLive accounts together. Seems like the only thing I’m missing now are friends!

In other news, I bought a bottle of St. Germain the other day. There was a man asking after it, which twinged an NPR memory, and ninja-like, I slipped a bottle off the shelf just before he proceeded to load the remainder of the store’s inventory into his basket. Even though I have absolutely no idea what to do with, I felt flush with validation after that.

Elderflower martinis, perhaps?
