12/14/2001 I started the Chatter section on July 27, 2000 when I noticed that the rest of my site was sometimes getting cluttered with lots of text. I'm a talkative guy, after all! So now I talk about my life here, instead of all over the place. Originally this was one huge section, but in December of 2001 it simply became too large to remain as one page, and I broke it into dated sections, as you can see. >PM

Which is, of course, literally true at the moment. Yeep. However, I came near to making it a lot worse today by laughing my head off. Let me explain:
I've been going through some funny old web sites to send to a friend. In the process, I re-discovered one that once again made me laugh so hard that I felt as if I would burst. Ever read something incredibly funny at work? I work in a cubicle, surrounded bywell, it wouldn't be fair to call them drones, but let's face it. We're all corporate drones here. Anyway, it's not the sort of place where you can laugh without being noticed. And this web site makes me laugh so hard that it physically hurts to keep the noise down.
They're much cooler and more popular than this site, I'm sure, so it kind of goes against my grain to link to them, but they're just too bleeping funny. Ever read old comic books? Remember the Hostess Fruit Pie ads? They starred various big-name superheros who inexplicably decided to solve all of their problems with delicious Hostess snacks. Well, the Seanbaby Hostess Page not only has hundreds of these ads, but the ones with dots next to them have incredibly funny comments, as well. Damn, I should do a project like that. Fair warning, though: the comments aren't for children, except maybe older ones with a twisted sense of humor.
