Here are the confessions of a blogaholic.

Their hyperlinks, like branches curling out into endspace, send us hurtling […]

The Dullest Blog in the World

Standing in the middle of the room
April 21st, 2005

I was standing at a central point in the room. The walls were all at approximately the same distance from me. I continued to stand there for a few moments.
