Fan mail

Well, I've gotten fan mail for my stories and articles but just now, got fan mail on a web site I designed. It's not from a potential customer, just somebody who happens to live in the building for the site, saw the site for the first time and wanted to tell me they thought it was nifty, easy to navigate, and "clean." (My sites are normally very clean, even if my mind is not.) I like the design myself too, although I'm not happy with the color scheme, which the client had me switch from purple to yellow last year b/c yellow matched the building.

L'il Car

If I were ever to drive (and this would only be in the city), this would be my car:



This is the electric SmartCar by DaimlerChrystler. For a reallllllllly cute web site, check out the Smart UK site (oh, God, it's so cute, I can't stand it!). I hope so bad that company eMobility gets going for real and Caleb and I can join up so we can pick up these suckers at MARTA stations and rent by the hour for a small fee. Wheeeeee!

Wish List

I found this thing I did last week where I was copying my Amazon.com Wish List down into a regular list so I could add it to my "master" list (especially my reading) list and thought it would be something fun to post.

Anybody who wants to influence me to get/read/see any particular book or movie or whatever, feel free :) And I don't necessarily intend to buy from Amazon, it's just convenient for me to keep a Wish List there so when I find something, I can mark it immediately.
