What are the haps my friends

December 6th, 2006: Guys, referring to the internet as "tubes" is OLD HAT. It is LAST WEEK, or more precisely YESTERDAY, because it was yesterday that Torontoist pointed me towards this hilarious video, which is an archived clip from CBC News in the early 90s, talking about "the growing phenomenon of internet". From now on, I would ask that you drop the "the" whenever referring to internet. I will do the same.

(sorry about the ebaumsworld video, but it was the best I could find!)

This video has changed my life. Not only does it have a British chap professing his undying passion for all things Thai, but it has a great explanation of emoticons, which I have put on a shirt for myself and am selling for a brief time for anyone who'd like one! They won't get printed until after Christmas, but imagine starting the new year with a shirt that proclaims to everyone, in all caps, that YOU ARE SERIOUS, and has the emoticon to back it up:

I will wear mine to funerals guys :-[

YOU LIKE TO READ: Probably, huh? Well GOOD NEWS: my book To Be or Not To Be (choose-your-own-path Hamlet!) is in the new Humble eBooks Bundle! Up to FIFTEEN books at a pay-what-you-want price, plus you support charity (and artists)! Definitely worth checking out, if you ask me.

NEW SHIRTS: As you may have noticed, I've spent the past all this year coming up with a new shirt design every month. Then I sold them for two weeks only! But now they're BACK... for two weeks only. Check them out! There are some PRETTY FRIGGIN' AWESOME shirts here. There's also a new one about dating, kinda?

One year ago today: t-rex really dropped the ball at the end there
