Something is wrong here...
May 3, 2006

About 2 weeks ago, I suddenly started saying "W00T" with no irony in every day conversation. Sure, the conversations may have been with myself, but there is something wrong about taking what I considered a geeky online term and applying it to every day life. This may have to do with my GQ (read: g33k quotient) cubing within the past 3 weeks. My job has changed again, and my head is filling with all sorts of knowledge that is indispensible, but I'm having issues remembering passwords again.

I had an interesting thing happen to me a couple of weeks ago: after getting my new iPod, I was cleaning up some ID tags in iTunes and adding dates and info and all that. Whilst doing this, I was using the incredibly handy website "Google" (anyone heard of it yet? It's going to be big!) to look up some of the lesser-known album information, when I happened to run into my own website. Not this one right now, on which you are reading these words, but one of my really really old websites out on Geocities when Geocities used to be Geocities and not Yahoo. Having my first site on BHI (Beverly Hills Internet), which eventually became Geocities, I had a plethora of sites starting around '94 and '95 all about me and my interests and my cats and what fun it is to g33k in HTML.

Anyhow, the site I found is here. It's a Green Day fansite I ran for around 3 years, and quit when I lost my computer in '99. You may be able to tell that this was the first website I created with the dreaded MS FrontPage - an incredibly crappy program used for making websites. I was all up in this because it made websites so. easy. and fast. to make! So I used the templates and pre-built backgrounds and animated gifs and all the lovely things which are still to this day included with the installation, and now when I look back at it, it just kind of makes me sick. I'm glad I went old school again when creating my next website, which is totally not in existence any more. In fact, the funny thing is that some people must have actually been going to my site on and off, since it's still up on the servers, and I haven't logged into the Yahoo webpage deal in at least 2-3 years. As a result, most of the links are broken, and most of the photos don't work any longer.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

OH. Jeebus. Nevermind. You mean the serenityvibrationhealing.com sites... no, I put those links up on the other site when it was created to help bolster the google rating. Hah.

Has anyone noticed that google's searching has started acting funky? Hrm...
