Chicago-style in the bathroom

New York subway map shower curtain + Chicago map soap + ???

I can’t find any more items like this, which is crushing my dreams of an awesomely city-themed bathroom. How about a Los Angeles towel? A Boston trash can? There must be more, somewhere.

Update 5/28/06 00:24: I found a Paris tea towel, which might work.

Update 5/29/06 01:16: My awesome mom showed me a London tea towel that she had in a drawer, but it was all stylized. I like the metro map things better. Also: London umbrella.

Neon green and purple

One of those scary pages I made back when I had iron eyeballs: “ikonoklasm”, my 2002-era collection of AIM icons. The little yellow birdie is still the cutest thing I’ve ever seen on the Internet. This kitten is close, though.

Mustache mission

A mission from Elvis (indirectly): find origin and etymology of phrase “crazy moon language”.

393 hits on Google. Some of them appeared to stem from Things to Say When You’re Losing a Technical Argument, a list from 2001. However, “crazy moon language” showed up on Usenet as early as 1996 — on

In episode 27, season 3, “That Mustache Feeling”, the Tick has a mustache and says “I can’t read your crazy moon language”, confirmed by TICKisms. The episode aired on September 14, 1996.

There was another mission, but it was more difficult and I chose not to accept.

oo mu

this is for tobie. hahaha.

interesting weblogs: integer poetry. the alternative nerd. vitamin-d.

a nice censorware article. if you’ve already decided censorware is sometimes necessary, it probably won’t change your mind…a good basic read if you hate BESS and haven’t thought more about it than that (which i suspect of most of the people at my school).

teeheehee. oo. a distant cousin of mu. or something.
