This amuses me, mostly because my schedule usually gets a great deal more complicated around 3:15 in the afternoon.

The Speed of Meme?

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

Via Bitch, Ph.D. comes a link to Acephalous’ meme experiment. He’s attempting to track how fast a meme can propagate across the blogosphere so take a moment, help a guy out! Post a link to his post in your blog and ping so he can track the spread.
And maybe we’ll all have fun with the […]

Meme of Pseudonymity

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Nabbed from jo(e):
Is your blogging persona more serious than your real life persona? Hell, no. More the opposite, I’d say. Online, I rant, I snark, I snipe and only occasionally do I tackle something serious here on my blog: usually only to do with politics oracademics, although I can turn serious on other topics.
Do you […]

I know: what a juxtaposition!
First: I did quite enjoy Narnia, despite the misgivings some have expressed about the series and the movie’s marketing connexions. There were parts that threw me: Father Christmas didn’t immediately register as such for me and the young actress who played Lucy seemed to express sorrow and joy with the same […]

Ideal Job Meme

As seen on many others’ blogs, most recently at A Ianqui in the Village. Go to Job Predictor, type in your name and see what jobs are right for you.
With my real name, my ideal job is a rear end of panto cow. (What a Pythoneseque image!)
I much prefer my pseudonym’s result. Ancarett’s ideal job […]

Ye Old Brit Lit Test

Saturday, September 3rd, 2005

So I wasn’t an English major, or even an English minor. Still, these results aren’t too bad — 205/290 with no cheating! And I did think about becoming an English major, but I felt I had a better “fit” in history. Not so sure about that from my current perspective, but c’est la vie!

Well-Read […]
