- What I did for New Year's Eve / the New Year
- accepted a quarter of a chocolate cake
- ate baked bananas
- watched fake pirates
- ate fruitcake
- ate with family
- ate a lot of food
- but did not eat long noodles, which are symbolic of having a long life
The important thing, though: I wish you all a happy New Year. Make it a good one.

The problem with updating a home page as a way to inform people of updates is that you have to decide which updates are notable and which are not. And if your updates are just a minor bit of text, or a background change, or a shift in your font size from 12 pixels to 12.5 pixels, then it's easy to pick and choose from the lineup. But then where does the cut stop? What if you edited a dated ten-year-old dinosaur webpage to reflect that pterodactyls aren't dinosaurs? Is that important? How many times can I fit "up" or "date" into this update without confusing myself? Why do I have more fun writing updates than writing a nice little poem that's up-to-date? Why is this site so meta? These are the questions that keep me up at night.
So okay, this home page is a irregular blog/thought dump now, as well as an update bin. Because even if this is just whispering into the void, it might as well be (semi) quality whispering instead of updates on dates of dates.
