So today has been rather uneventful.,_
Very little happened overall.  I  _  \`\  )\  ,
think I am going to start     ,_  \`\|  \/ |_/\
doing all my daily posts .-. , `\ )/  `   '     |/\
like this with some     _     \/  ,.              /_,
sort of ascii graphic   `\      ,/(                 /__  ,
to go with them so that  / _   /                      _/|
you all don't find them `\/ \,; '     ,                 /_,
quite as boring.        (  ( | /|     )                ` /
                         )   | b/    /                  .'

go throuh and read the long, |, _ \                      _.'
boring posts that I sometimes \| 7/                    /_ ,
put up here.  I'm going to make a concerted effort to    \

can't garuantee that, but it's what I'm going for.  \( (|
                                                   \( ) )
Sometimes everyone needs to just step back and    (( )  '
look at some of the things that have been done   | ) )
before Windows Paint came out.  Blah.             )  .
                                   )\    /\ )\   )
I think my post for    (          |  \ / \((  ) /

sort in it as a    ((    (  (|                 .
text breaker much   )        )
like this horse head is in  (
this post.  Except I think I'll do tomorrow's in a bit different
fashion.  We'll see.
