Spring wanted to do
some holiday shopping at this local dollar store and I tagged along.
What a bizarre store! What a fun store!
Where else can you get a cheap plastic lightup Jesus on a stand? Or
Black Love Incense™ (with a loving black couple in an embrace on the
cover)? Or any number of plastic gyrating singing Santas that are motion
sensitive? Or tacky Florida keychains? Or walking sticks? Generic action
figures? Or porcelain kitties with these demonic psychotic eyes?
This was more fun that the time some friends and I set off all the
bouncing Tiggers at the local Wal★Mart a few years ago …

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
