The Things That Excite Me…

by Nathan Hamm on 3/12/2005 · 3 comments

I absolutely rely on news alerts from Google News for the more obscure stories I find around here. Well, there’s something new over there at Google News that excites me. You can customize the news page now. Beautiful. Now I can have just the stuff I care about up — Central Asia news, Oregon news, and celebrity gossip.*

While I’m fawning over Google, I should mention that the gods have finally decided that I’m cool enough to have a Gmail address and I have tons of invites if anyone wants one.

*An addiction I developed in the Peace Corps. One will read anything, including every issue of People and Entertainment Weekly one can find, under the right conditions

Flawed argument. Under the right conditions you might drink your piss, pardon me, but it doesn’t justify continuing the practice when conditions have been changed.
If I knew you needed gmail invite, you’d get one looooong time ago.

I’m addicted now though and I don’t think I’m ready to totally kick the habit. It’s a good thing I still kind of pay attention or I’d have almost nothing to talk about with most women I know.
