Postsecret, meet lolcatz.

In May, I referenced an interesting article on internet memes leading up to lolcatz.

Postsecret is a blog that posts secrets. Check it out, it’s cool.

Now, somebody combined the two: lolsecretz.

Via Wondermark, a funny internet comic.

A story in a picture

Google Reader Trends - September 22, 2007

This suggests that I was bored at work this week. In reality, exactly the opposite was true. I was very productive this week. So what’s going on? I guess I was just much more efficient than usual.

I never thought of doing this in photoshop

But it looks fun. Every Filter.

I can’t believe I never saw this before

Because it is awesome: Daft Hands – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

And on another topic entirely, I finally, after a few half-assed attempts and months of not trying, managed to really memorize the ASL alphabet. And I’ve learned the question words, and the days of the week, and a few other things. I’m slowly getting it, yay!

Life goes on

Hello World! I had a great weekend.

On Saturday I ran in the New Orleans Rebirth 5k, my first 5k since high school. I finished in 22:53, not as fast as I wanted to, but still not a bad time. A bunch of friends ran with me which made it great fun. We fielded a team, and Amy joined at the last minute but apparently it didn’t get recorded correctly — if it had we would have won all the team categories pretty handily. Yay us.

On Sunday, I went sailing on the Chesapeake with a couple of friends. Two of us (not me) had sailed a reasonable amount in the last few years, one of whom sailed a bunch this summer. I had sailed a little bit when I was a kid. Our fourth had never really sailed much. We were not what one would call “experienced.” Despite that, or perhaps because of it, we had a good time and managed to get around fine without using the motor. Trial and error! I hope to get some more sailing in this year and to keep it up next year. It’s a really nice way to spend time on the water.

A very funny article

Maybe it’s because I live in DC, relatively close to the political center of the nation, but I found this article in the Washington Post, “A Surreality Check” By Richard Cohen, extremely entertaining. Thanks to Krista for pointing it out.
