Farmer’s Weather Complex™

Saturday, 27 July 2002

i’ve al­most got the CSS ver­sion of my page fin­ished. i was al­most giv­ing my­self and aneurysm try­ing to fig­ure it out for the past few days but it all clicked yes­ter­day es­pe­cial­ly af­ter a lit­tle help from this place. now all i need to do is get move­able­type in­stalled cor­rect­ly on my web­space and learn to use it then i’ll be stream­lined and ready to roll.

we’ve need­ed rain bad­ly for sev­er­al weeks and we fi­nal­ly got it. al­though i am not a farmer, liv­ing in a farm­ing com­mu­ni­ty has made me aware of the weath­er and in do­ing so i have de­vel­oped the Farmer’s Weather Complex™. there is al­ways ei­ther too much rain or not enough rain. this sum­mer has been a dry one but hope­ful­ly this rain will do the crops some good. it is al­so fair time around here which means next week i am go­ing to get an ele­phant ear and (if my braces are off) a can­died ap­ple. mm­mm got­ta love the fair.

Site as Mind

Monday, 22 April 2002

every­thing that is writ­ten in this weblog is the prop­er­ty of me my­self and i. this site is my mind. i am in to­tal con­trol of my mind. i choose to delete com­ments that are not con­struc­tive or ap­pro­pri­ate for my mind. say­ing that you are ‘telling it like you see it’ does not mean you have li­cense to say any­thing you want. you must jus­ti­fy your­self in my mind. i am the on­ly one here who can call it like i see it be­cause this is MINE. peo­ple who know me un­der­stand that i think in rhetor­i­cal cir­cles and hy­po­thet­i­cals, which af­ter enough rev­o­lu­tions bring about re­sults. noth­ing is di­rect­ed at a spe­cif­ic sub­ject. there might be a spe­cif­ic im­pe­tus that sparks the thought process, but i try very hard not to let my judge­ment af­fect my so­cial con­science. THEREFORE, to those that choose to re­ply to my ram­blings: if you as­sail me with dis­junc­tive al­le­ga­tions or at­tempt to place your­self in a om­ni­scient re­la­tion to­ward me as one who has it all to­geth­er. i am on to you, liar. wis­dom and thoughts are more than wel­come, but on an equal foot­ing with every­thing else.‘Wisdom’ that places it­self in a pow­er po­si­tion over any­thing is so much se­man­tic bull­shit. i wel­come con­struc­tive dis­cus­sion and wry cri­tique but abuse will be wiped out. what do YOU think?
