So I find myself in an Oriental food store with Spring.
Soy bean snacks. Chocolate
covered cracker sticks. Dried seaweed. Squid. Tea. Lots of tea but
no Black Currant. Supposedly sweet snacks made of rice. Or
soy. Or octopus. Incense by the gross. Chop sticks. Tea pots. Pickled
bamboo shoots. Pickled pepper. Pickled pickles. And even more odd food
stuffs that my thoroughly Americanized palette refuses to believe is even
edible, much less good as Spring insists.
But the soap smells nice. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm … sandalwood.

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
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you 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
