dear diary...: want to jot a quick note to yourself? want to write a little journal entry that no one else can see? when you post a blog, you can set the security to limit viewers to only you. your searches will still scan through, so it works just like any other blog. except no one else can see it!
timezone: move around a lot? avalantern can detect your timezone for you, but if you'd prefer, you can set it in your settings
this is a new tidbit - yay! woot! hoorah!
i am a chicagoan, born and raised, and i'm very proud to say such. although i have much german, irish and english blood, i consider myself to be primarily of belgian descent. and i am exceptionally proud of this.
'tis i, THE lowly peon!
i am a computer geek for a ginormous manufacturing company based in houston. houston is surely not my favorite place on earth, but the company is soon sending me to china! i am very excited about this.
i like apple computers, and i like web development.
i like good music. if you're curious about specifics, just know that no one has better musical taste than i, unless, of course, it is identical. i'm a big sap for cheeesy love songs.
i also like good movies. people tend to disagree with me about what movies are good. i'm also a sucker for sappy love movies.
i have an idea of my "best self" (to use ethan hawke's words in before sunset), and sadly, nearly every aspect of that "best self" conflicts with every other aspect. thus, my mind tends to be all over the place. i like to think i'm a jack of all trades, and i'm surely a master of none.
and just remember: the sun's not yellow; it's chicken.
unread mail: the little number next to your mailbox is the number of unread messages you have -- these messages are either from your friends, or they're notifications from avalantern
twitter user names: if you authorize with twitter, avalantern will convert avalantern user names with @twitter user names! you don't even need to worry about it!
