  • What's with wordies and tsunami-related pages?

    November 9, 2011

  • (Offpage) [sound of gnawing]

  • Oh!, it is like golf where you tee the thing up and wack it across the gulf course.

The room at IU where this was to take place was being used for a concert so we had to wait. I kept waiting for ruzuzu to show up and get the party started, excited to finally put a face to the persona. The party never happened; I woke up too soon. : > (
