One of those five missing tabs is in my pocket.
I chuckled heartily to myself when I saw this. I’ve yet to encounter the majority of these types—with the exception of the mother and smug peer types. And the gerbils. ;)
The offline world has been keeping me busy, so posts have been sparse this past week, I know. Rather than default to that tired old cliche of making a blog entry out of explaining why I haven’t been blogging, here’s a little spark of pure genius I spotted on Kris Wilson’s deviantART page:
I hope it does for you what it did for me. :D
It’s raining today. Since I don’t get the paper (and if I did, it would be sitting on my doorstep right now, soggy and bleeding ink all over the mat), I’ve been snuggling up with some online comic favorites:

Initially, the word l33t was used as an adjective, to primarily describe the behavior or accomplishments of others in the community. In that usage Leet generally carries the same meaning when referring to either the game prowess or, in original usage, hacking expertise of another person. From adjective form its use then expanded to include use as an expletive or interjection in reaction to a demonstration of the former qualities. With the mass proliferation of Internet use in the 1990s into the 21st century, Leet has since become a part of Internet culture and slang. Leet may also be considered a substitution cipher, albeit with much variation from user to user.

There are several things going on at the moment behind the scenes, not the least of which is SuperMegaNet 1.5. With luck I’ll have it up by the end of the week. Until then, stay calm, breathe deep, and remember to make sure none of your friends are carrying a camera if you ever get stuck in a shopping cart. :)
