My wee gratitude list

June 25th, 2013 at 03:31 am

The lesser of two evils won the Stanley Cup. I am celebrating with a Pop-Tart, because I'm broke.

On Sunday, we were shopping for groceries racking up the big sales so we could get a $7-off coupon, gas rewards, etc. when the woman ahead of us said "oh this coupon expires today and I won't be able to use it. You have it." We saved 40% off our grocery bill and now have 20 cents/gallon gas rewards. Whee!

Remember a few posts back my contribution about privacy? I just learned about the Deep Web and it feels like 1992 all over again as I look at this strange, brave new world. I'm excited about what I learn: probably because there are no cookies, pop-up ads, etc. It's as if my third eye was decalcified!

I am listening to an album put out by an obscure Japanese psych band (oooh, so hipster!) and it is so good it makes me forget about Talk Talk. The band is Apryl Fool and their bassist went on to become an important part of Yellow Magic Orchestra and did some other excellent solo projects. Terrific rainy day music.

I am making a list of the diners in Vancouver I'm going to eat at, and the books at the Vancouver Public Library that are not carried down south (London publishers). I get to take the car up with me which is great because there is no bus transport where I'll be staying.

Researching bitcoin. And as I just typed that my PC emitted some loud alarm type noise... weird.

    OK - What on earth is the Deep Web? Now I'm curious.

    The Deep Web is sort of what the Loompanics catalog used to be, mixed with what the Internet used to be 20 years ago: mostly text, no "social media gurus", no disinformation specialists, no cookies, no snooping, no ads, no viruses, no "The owner of this video has blocked your view due to copyright" messages, just peer-shared content.

    Wrong. The lesser of two evils did not win the Stanley Cup.

  4. PauletteGoddard Says:

    I'm talking about the 2013 Stanley Cup, not the 2011.

    Wha??? A FANTASTIC team won the Stanley Cup!
