Where in the world is Mr. WordPress???

February 16th, 2007

Here’s the deal: My name is Mrs. WordPress and I’m married to Mr. WordPress. Some time ago he walked out and I haven’t seen him since. But the bastard is all over the internet, leaving the same damn comment at blogs all over the place, even HERE!! I mean, what the hell is going on? He said he was just going out to get some milk for our son, Junior WordPress. And then nothing, not a word. I’m at my wit’s end. Someone please help me!

Hello world!

February 16th, 2007

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging!

"Hat tip" to Problogger for the introduction to this blog.

Blackberry diagnosis

Link: Dilbert Comic Strip Archive – Dilbert.com – The Official Dilbert Website by Scott Adams – Dilbert, Dogbert and Coworkers!

This Dilbert comic strip is so funny in many ways. Scott Adams catches microtrends and spears corporate life like no other (he taps the contemporary pulse unnervingly on his blog, which is an art form in how to play an audience). In the strip, Catbert (head of human resources) introduces the new company health plan: "from now on, employees have to use Google to diagnose their own illnesses". Funny enough, but a couple of panels on Catbert is sitting in a meeting searching his Blackberry to diagnose a disease .. which will surely raise a smile among those who go to meetings with people who use Blackberrys to conduct other business simultaneously.

The diagnosis and treatment are worth a look, too.

The Session and the Henderson Laboratory

Taking a more relaxed approach to blogging today, here is an extract from an emailshot I received the other day:

Review copies are now available for THE SESSION, A NOVELLA IN DIALOGUE by Aaron Petrovich, the debut installment in the "Hotel St. George Press" imprint. Details about the book and the imprint are listed below. Please e-mail us back if you’d like to receive a copy.

Best Regards,

"Funny, frantic, and with a subversive intelligence, Aaron Petrovich’s Keatonesque heroes, Detectives Smith and Smith, stumble upon a bizarre new religion while following the trail of a murdered mathematician’s missing organs. Their investigation to discover the truth–about the mathematician murder, the mob of men and women who may have eaten him, and ultimately the nature of truth, sanity, and identity–leads them into a lunatic asylum they may never leave."

Hotel St. George Press–an online literary and arts quarterly featuring original fiction, artwork, films, short films, music, and radio plays–is dedicated to publishing intra-genre fictions that fuse the formal craftsmanship of artbooks with the substantive content of dynamic, modern prose.

The Winter 2007 Issue is now online . With the Winter Issue comes the opening of a new wing, the HENDERSON LABORATORY, in which one occupant is given free reign to experiment with new and unusual ideas throughout the duration of the season. Our current guest, Catherine
Bloom, has begun posting her astonishing weekly neuroscience blog, viewable here.

Well, I sure get some interesting mailshots.
