Darn you, firefox and your useful URL-blank-filling-in ways! How am I supposed to pretend to be Err on Wired's blog comments when you tell them where my web page is?

So, what is the site hit rate looking like?

I'm sorry, that is not a hair related question.

#5 ::: Dawno ::: (view all by) ::: February 02, 2007, 04:00 PM:

Greg, my sincere apologies. Should I use Preference or Nice and Easy to cover the grey?

Either my tracker doesn't doesn't pick up traffic coming in from videos in its "last 20 referrers" list, or Technorati Buzz TV doesn't strongly inspire its viewers to go look at the material it covers.

#7 ::: Teresa Nielsen Hayden ::: (view all by) ::: February 02, 2007, 04:02 PM:

Dawno, the overall numbers are running a little higher than I'd normally expect at this point on a Friday, but my coverage of the Boston thing has gotten linked from a lot of sites, so the numbers would probably be up anyway.

It's still cool.

Greg - sincere apology #2: It was after I hit "post" that it occured to me you might be referring to the comments of Peter Berdovsky and Sean Stevens after their arrest. I'm a bit slow, sometimes, on the uptake. I still don't know which hair color to use, though.

#10 ::: colin roald ::: (view all by) ::: February 02, 2007, 04:46 PM:

It's so weird to see an acquaintance in the news like this. Sean Stevens is a really nice guy.

colin roald 10: You mean he's not a terrorist? We are shocked, shocked to hear of this! Shocked.

Dawno... As for myself, I stick with my natural hair color. I think the grey makes me look distinguished. ("Extinguished, more like," say certain people.)

#13 ::: ethan ::: (view all by) ::: February 02, 2007, 06:34 PM:

Huh. I'd never actually looked at Buzz TV before. It's a good concept, I suppose, but why does the guy feel the need to act like he's on VH1?

Don't get me wrong. Just because the dude = abrasive does not mean that the mention /= cool.

#14 ::: Marilee ::: (view all by) ::: February 02, 2007, 09:05 PM:

When my hair started coming back in after the first time it fell out, it was very thin, so I used a purple rinse on it. The second time, it was darker and curly which was really weird. I'm getting silver hairs, but the streak I've been wanting for years isn't here yet.

#16 ::: Xopher ::: (view all by) ::: February 02, 2007, 11:39 PM:

ethan 13: You think he's abrasive? I think he's sexy. I'd do him in a New York minute. (I mean I'd START in a minute, not finish that fast.)

How quaint.

#19 ::: ethan ::: (view all by) ::: February 03, 2007, 02:34 AM:

Xopher, sure, if I hadn't seen him moving and speaking, I probably would have gone "ooh." Unfortunately, I did see him moving and speaking and, ugh.

#20 ::: Sylvia Li ::: (view all by) ::: February 03, 2007, 03:02 PM:

Umm, ethan? Tastes differ, I'm sure. But some guys fall into the category of, "I can't see how anyone could fail to notice that he's off-the-scale hot."

I may be an old woman now, and in any case I've been happily married since 1965 -- but I've still got eyes.

#21 ::: ethan ::: (view all by) ::: February 03, 2007, 06:58 PM:

OK, fine, the ayes have it. I still think I'll stick with my Agent Cooper as far as semi-obscure long-distance crushes go.

#22 ::: Julia Jones ::: (view all by) ::: February 04, 2007, 05:41 PM:

Besides, "abrasive" and "sexy" are not necessarily mutually exclusive, at least for values of "sexy" that cover "shagalicious" but not "relationship material".

hi patrick,

off-topic, but wanted to say thanks to your and demosthenes' comments on my blog, i went back and re-read that kos post and yes, you are right, he was being snarky.

i struck thru the original post and added an apology. you are right, no need to misquote him out of context to prove my point, i'll let his own karma do that job for me.

Err- to avoid confusion, by "two posts", I meant "two posts of spam", not "two posts calling out the spam. I didn't mean to post a second spam alert.
