You've been trying to type this rant up for three weeks, but
you screamed too much into it. It's too much … I can't take
the tape out, I'd lose it. I can't take the tape deck out, I'm
certain I'd lose that too. I lose tape decks at a rate proportional
to the stress I'm under. Recently? One a month. On the tape I'm
shouting so loud …
There were 97 separate marketing messages in my kitchen,
97—200+ duplicates, and I didn't know. I didn't

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are

interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
