Song Lyric of the Day:

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead / And the white knight is talking backwards / And the red queen’s off with her head / Remember what the dormouse said / Feed your head, feed your head

Jefferson Airplane
/ “White Rabbit

I finally sat down tonight to start updating/whittling down my massive bookmarks list. I have a ton of blogs bookmarked, including some I never read anymore. I have lots of writing reference websites bookmarked which are outdated. I have tons of news, newspaper, and infotainment sites bookmarked, too. And countless other sundry sites.

Where I have a real problem, though, is the bookmarks I added simply for the sake of looking at said sites at a later date. Maybe it was a link someone sent me via IM while I was in the middle of working; no problem, bookmark it for later! Maybe it was a funny YouTube video that I thought I might watch more than once. Or maybe it was something that sent a coworker into fits of hysterical laughter. Which is how I ended up with the Belgian Farting Pig video bookmarked.

But, really, I think it’s my inherent pack rat tendencies, inherited from my parents, which I have to blame. It’s because of them that I save all kinds of shit — even virtually.
