Did you know the squirrels there are black? I've never seen a black squirrel before, kinda blew me away, ours are all brown. Sometimes you'll see one that's gray. That's it. Dave and I talked about putting one of the toronto ones in a sack and bringing it back to Kansas for our own squirrel desegregation program, but then we remembered that was what customs was for.
On to other things... today was beautiful out. It is currently 53°F where I am, 28°F in Toronto. Eat it, hippies! I'll repeat: love your city, hate your weather... I'm sticking with Kansas. So I spent the morning wasting time with web stuff then in the afternoon I went for a run outside in the sunshine wearing shorts and a long sleeved t-shirt. ahh. came back, stretched, thought about doing sit-ups but just couldn't bring myself to it. Showered. Went to Dave's and ate soup with him. Came back, watched my tape of "SURVIVOR" from this week... it was great, they voted off this annoying biznitch I'd hated from day 1.
Spent a long time looking at my webstats today. I've had this one counter for almost three years now (!) on one site or another. There've been lots of times when it was off, but I put it on there again for fun a few months ago. It's counted 14470 unique visitors during its time "on". damn. and I've been doing very well lately, weird to say it, spacefem.com gets 100-200 unique hits a day now, I remember when I was thrilled to have that many in a week. I could never quit my internet activity. It makes me feel immortal somehow. Scary, I know... I love being Spacefem sometimes more than I like being the girl behind her. There was a time when I really was trying to make the two identities totally separate but then I realized that one would be too boring without the other. So Spacefem is a little tougher, a little harder, a lot smarter than the girl who invented her, but they're based on the same set of brain cells. A gift to one another. But now I'm thinking too much again.
End note: I posted this in #BeOS this morning because it came up in conversation, but I thought I'd add here that this is one of the funniest reasons I love jill sobule... you should just all read it, it kills me every time!
