This was originally going to be a journal. I have several friends who are journal-keepers, and it's always struck me as a generally cool and useful thing to do, but somehow I never get around to actually keeping a journal, though I've started several times.
I suspect that the main reason I never manage to keep a journal is that a journal is a place where one writes down what is occurring in one's life, and, well, I don't have one. A life, that is. Well, sometimes I do, but then I'm generally too busy having it to write about it.
The URL http://www.PigsAndFishes.org/natter/latest.html will always take you to the latest entry.
