    I’m game…

    but how did you work those cool blue clickable words in? I wanna be smooth and include a linkable word in my text too, d***it!

    sometimes my ignorance embarasses me…

    harumph!

    when I click and paste, all i get are normal little words.. no fancy blues clickable words..

    maybe it is Safari..

    I really really really don’t want to write my own code. I have remained willifully ignorant until this point, but the need for blog coolness drives me to this ultimate sacrifice…. (looking noble and humbel at the same time) (oh, and very very cool…)

    (hanging head in shame)

    (weeping openly)

    (can one weep openly and smile sarcastically at the same time?)
