Since I’ll hit 20 years of blogging this November, this year I’m posting a daily list of anything I published on this day in the past.

There are 21 posts previously published on July 27th

    • My niece, after seeing my new tattoo on my calf: “People with arm tattoos are bad!” Me: “You mean, like this?” As I pull up my sleeve to show her my first tattoo. Niece, eyes wide: “…unless they’re family. Then they’re okay.”
    • YATP (Yet Another Test Post): Facebook has apparently changed their API, so direct > Facebook cross-posting isn’t working. This is to see if an IFTTT > Facebook applet still works (after the > WordPress step).
  • 2016
    • The A/C is back! There will actually be a perceivable difference between inside and out! (209/366)
  • 2015
    • Mmmm…home grown cucumber fresh off the vine. Sweet and tasty! Plus fresh picked tomato for Prairie.
  • 2014
    • A few days of not shaving, and I’m showing definite signs of scruff. Everyone is happy about this.
    • Found at an antique store this morning: The Gentleman’s Companion, Vol. I (Being an Exotic Cookery Book) and Vol. II (Being an Exotic Drinking Book), first published in 1939, updated in 1946.
  • 2007
    • Deacon John Hanscom Many congratulations to my dad, who was ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons at Holy Spirit Episcopal Church this last Wednesday evening!
  • 2006
    • One man’s porn… 'Are these _real_?' I asked myself as I scrolled down the row of pictures on the webpage. Prairie started giggling. 'That's the kind of thing most guys would say while they're looking at porn.' I laughed. 'I _am_!'

    • LiveJournal Syndication Update Allrighty wasn't the solution that I was hoping for, but I think I've managed to fumble my way through _a_ solution for my issues with the woody_eclectic LiveJournal feed.
    • We Are the Web There is only one time in the history of each planet when its inhabitants first wire up its innumerable parts to make one large Machine. Later that Machine may run faster, but there is only one time when it is born. You and I are alive at this moment.
    • Phobic I've mentioned my fear of flying in the past. Earlier today, Steven Frank wrote about his battle with the same phobia -- and from the sound of it, he was hit by it far harder than I was. If you're phobic or know someone who is, this is well worth reading.
    • LiveJournal readers: help! Okay, here's the situation. Right now, there's 29 of you reading my stuff (or at least skimming it occasionally) through the LJ syndication account woody_eclectic, which I think is great. There's just one little issue, though...and it's one that I can't (easily) fix on my own.
    • A long, long time ago… far away galaxy, though. Last night I got an e-mail from Kathleen, who'd stumbled across my Gigs photoset while looking for an old friend of hers. She was kind enough to send me an old photo from Gigs and said I could go ahead and post it along with the rest of my pictures from the club.
  • 2003
    • Bush/Cheney vs. Dean This is what it's all about. Not $2000 a head dinners so the fat cats can buy their "special interests" by keeping the status quo, but by people all across the country giving what they can, because they believe in a candidate, and because they want to make a change for the better.
    • Siggraph fun Did I mention that I'm jealous? What fun shiny toys they must have there!
    • Koosay, Eebay, and Ooday You’ve probably noticed that there are many different spellings of Arabic names depending on which news source you are reading. The truth is that there is no consensus how to write Arabic words in English. If we are going to investigate Arabic names we must therefore use phonetic spellings.
    • Metabetablog I mention this because my last post got incorporated into the latest creation. Made me laugh.
    • I'm such a music whore Newest additions to the ever-growing collection, thanks to The Vogue, Jonas, John, and the fine folks at musicwerks:
    • Importing MT archives: month by month I'm starting work on importing my archives from The Long Letter into Eclecticism. I wanted to see if I could figure out how to import one month's worth of posts at a time, instead of the whole kit and kaboodle. Here's what I ended up with.
  • 2002
    • Eight Legged Freaks A silly premise, scientific accuracy thrown out the window, sterotypical characters, and cheezy lines, all add up (in my world, at least) to a very enjoyable couple hours at the movies.
  • 2001
    • Job details, more books, and monkeys Anyway...went out to see Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, one of the big films I'd been waiting to see this summer. So how was it? Horrid -- the end result was it's a matinee at best...quite possibly only a rental.
