No Title

Another interesting entry in the “manage your data sweepstakes” is Hep. It appears to be
similar to Zoe in some regards but it has a number of protocols it
works with, and accepts input from them. For example, you can mail to
it and have that posted to a weblog or have a jabber message go to
your weblog. I’ll be checking this one out.

I continue being depressed. Right now I should be getting ready for
work but I just sit on the couch like a lump. So many aspects of my
life and the world are so far from how I want them, I have to fight
hard the urge to just shut down. I’ve been listening to ever more
Everclear. These loud abrasive songs of throwing your shit in the car
and driving to better places, of telling everyone to fuck off and
doing what you want, they appeal to me right now.

Zoe show me an interesting post from Brian Buck, one describing his feelings
of mourning
as a cancer survivor who watches many people die. I
found this piece comforting. I’m full of mourning too, for people I
love and for some I never met and for a time and a place and for a
world I understood. Now I just long for the days when I didn’t always
feel on the edge of crying.
