Boston is encased in snow. Unfortunately, that means Boston will be encased in slush in a couple days. So taking the pictures today was key.

Truck covered in snow

There was some fun to be had in running through a foot of snow and digging cars out of their parking spots. There was no church service today for most, including my church, except maybe High Rock. Like most, they decided to ask folks to stay home, though they'd put on a little something for anyone near Davis Square. A bevy of church-deprived Somerville and Medford residents descended into the side-chapel they used -- I guess they didn't quite count on visitors.

I wonder what church would be like if it were more location-based.



I like it when people blog and use interesting words like "bevy." We all know the meaning and usage, but so many times we just say things like "a lot of" or "many" or something boring and prosaic.

My new word for the week: pablum I like learning new words. Maybe my brain is taken up by song lyrics and movie quotes and vocab words so there's no room for geography.

Stay warm! :)

Xanga RSS

I am not sure if you are aware of this, but since you have a RSS feed generator for Xanga, I would like to let you know that Xanga already provides one. Theirs includes the post in the feed also. It is accessible at

I used this in a web service I made this week for my friends who use Xanga.

Thanks for the...

Thanks for the pointer. Xanga did not have RSS when I initiated my projected way back when, something I then assumed had to do with their insularity. Good to see I was wrong.

They don't adhere to the RSS 0.91 spec very well. I'll keep my version running until they do.

I trust reading my journal is not what makes you think pablum. Welcome back to the world of blogging. You know, that reminds me, I should go write my own browser.
