I've been sick

I never got to ski that day. And, I've been fighting a cold. On top of all of this, I get home and I'm so tired.

This is what I think I look like:











But, this is what I actually look like...

Have you Blog Streaked Lately?

Photolurking, blog streaking and cheesepodding: The new Internet addictions

Tue Dec 19, 2:43 PM ET

The Internet has given birth to a quirky range of modern addictions and maladies, the British weekly New Scientist says in its Christmas issue published this Saturday.

They include these:

- EGO-SURFING: When you frequently check your name and reputation on the Internet.

- BLOG STREAKING: "Revealing secrets or personal information online which for everybody's sake would be best kept private."

- CRACKBERRY: "The curse of the modern executive: not being able to stop checking your BlackBerry, even at your grandmother's funeral." (A BlackBerry is a popular handheld device that can be used for phoning, emailing and web-browsing).

- GOOGLE-STALKING: Defined as "snooping online on old friends, colleagues or first dates."

- CYBERCHONDRIA: "A headache and a particular rash at the same time? Extensive online research tells you it must be cancer."

- PHOTOLURKING: Flicking through a photo album of someone you've never met.

- WIKIPEDIHOLISM: Excess devotion to contributing to the online collaborative encyclopaedia, Wikipedia. (Wikipedia even has a page where you can test whether you're an addict: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Are-You-a-Wikipediholic-Test)).

- CHEESEPODDING: Downloading of a song "so cheesy that you could cover it in plastic wrap and sell it at the deli counter." Cheesepodders are especially vulnerable to soft-rock favourites from the 1970s.

Bainbridge Mariner Arrested for Drunken Boating
By JOSH FARLEY
December 8, 2006

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND

A 41-year-old Bainbridge man was arrested late Thursday for boating under the influence and failing to stop for officers pursuing his rowboat, according to the Bainbridge Island Police Department.

A Bainbridge officer had gone to the island's city dock, near Waterfront Park, and saw the 41-year-old "drifting" 10 feet from the dock in an 8-foot dinghy about 11:30 p.m., according to police reports.

The man was attempting to roll a cigarette on the boat, reports said. When officers called for him to return to the dock, he refused, and "was slurring his words to the point of them being nearly unintelligible," an officer said.

Using only oars, the man guided the row boat toward another boat in the harbor, and officers jumped into one of their own and gave chase.

Though officers pulled the man from his dinghy and onto their boat, the man refused to go onto the dock and kept a firm grip on the officers' boat, reports said.

With three officers pulling him off the boat, the man was finally handcuffed and placed into the back of a patrol car for transport to jail.

Though he refused to take an alcohol breath test, the officer said the man "reeked of alcohol," reports said.

He was booked into jail on suspicion of the charges.

To: dtafterdark@gmail.com


With the holidays upon us, people are quickly getting into party-mode.
We hope you're no exception! We and Stephen Hauptfuhr are having a
party this Friday, Dec. 8 at Bordello, a beautiful new venue downtown
that just opened over the weekend. It's got an awesome vibe that's
true to its name -- gorgeous red fabric and lots of dark wood adding
up to an undeniably burlesque feel.

We've also got some great DJs for the night: Dirty Dave, Aaron Castle
and Justin Sterling.

Be the first to check it out and get there early to grab a booth! This
is RSVP only, so make sure to get on the list.


So, have you been naughty or nice this year?...



Best,
Alexis Johnson and Noel Hyun
