LOL = Leave Online; SMIT has signed off at %t.

The above title refers to my days as a naive AOLer in the midnineties. Often more times than not, I would sign off flustered and discouraged after being instructed to sign offline for what I thought were clever cunning comments in the chatrooms. A typical chatroom day for me:

*** You have entered TeenChat 666 ***

xX SMITTY Xx: shut up stick a chopstick up yer but
DoNJUaN03: LOL!!!!!!
DinKFACE00093: lOl
xX SMITTY Xx: sorry guys bye
*** xX SMITTY Xx has left the chat ***
SCU286: wHAT ADouchEBAG! WHERE DIDdehhE GO ? check ouT MY SiTE

It wasn't until a good few months later when I found out that LOL actually meant lawl, laugh out loud, my all time favorite acronym that I never use. All those potential chances to be discovered by a comedic scout lurking the chats shot down and stomped on.

Where have I been recently, definitely not around here. Last night Danwho and I caught a mouse, not a wild muskrat but an albino mouse that obviously escaped from a methamphetimine/animal sciences combolab from the apartment next to us. I was prepared to write up a whole update about the predicament and revitalize the life in this site but once again my great intentions are squashed, only this time by a half Polack. Danwho wrote up a brilliant recap of last nights event at his site, right over here across the way, at 6 am this morning still under the influence of Sparks alcoholic energy drinks.

We put the mouse in a pickle jar with the stereotypical pasteruized slices of cheese, and somehow he escaped and jumped off the third story balcony. This ended in yet another capture for this freedomdeserving rodent and placed into a better suited habitat aka a bucket for the night. I took a picture of it this morning and I have named this mouse as the offical mascot for my site. While the mouse is not actually in the photograph, I swear he is in the shoe or under that rag.

In keeping with the smithappens animal themes, I am throwing a shameless plug to my animal mating calls page because I need a spacefiller.

Hang on, I'm on my laptop and I'm going to jump onto my desktop.


You don't get anything clean without getting something else dirty.

Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength for our nation.

We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth.

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

For in the final analysis, our most basic common link, is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's futures, and we are all mortal.
