I have two more links that I'd like to share. Why? Because, damn it, I can't bring myself to do any actual work today. (Who are you calling a slacker?)
The first link is quite funny... especially if you are, are trying, or have tried to do the blogging thing. The article is titled How To Start Your Very Own Blog In Fifty-One Easy Steps! It walks you through the beginning steps of blogging... the true beginning steps of blogging. None of this sugar-coated "blogging is easy and fun!" crap. This is the real deal. Give it a read... and while you're there, read the rest of Kuro5hin. A good blog and well worth your time... at least, well worth my time... my time isn't worth much...
The second link is for the let's-get-down-to-business side of your personality. This little application, called 1-Click Answers, is so useful that it's making me dizzy (oh, wait... that's probably the Percocet). This utility allows the user to select any word in any application and get instant information about it. Yes yes, I know. That's more or less what the internet does. But this little gem is accurate and fast and thorough. In one swift key command, I can select the word information from the text that I had typed above, and get the word's dictionary entry, thesaurus entry, wikipedia, translations, legal info, technology info, etc... It's really sweet. Go get it. It's a free download and available for Mac, Windows, and as a Firefox plugin. (Oh... you can also go to the website and type the word in there and get the same results... but where's the fun in that?)

So, uh, do you ever fantasize about wearing lederhosen while flailing midgets with kielbasa sausage? Poor oompa loompas.
That was funny. Quite amusing. Ya know, cuz I'm a lazy punk, I picked the most basic, white template anyway. Yaay! I skipped steps!
The other link was cool too. Now I know where to go to get answers re:when to wear pants.
