Nikki Alfar
This is what my name looks like in Baybayin, the pre-Hispanic written language used by several ancient Filipino tribes. You can find out what your name looks like-- as well as find out all kinds of interesting facts, download Baybayin fonts, and learn to write Baybayin yourself-- at Sarisari Etc. Thanks to Paul Morrow for putting up this cool site!

addendum to my post on elevator peeves
peeve # 7. people who jab the call button again and again while waiting for the elevator. Honestly, folks, it doesn't work. It doesn't accomplish anything, except for making me want to rip your annoying digit off with my teeth, spit it out onto the floor, and jump up and down on it frenziedly. Patience is a virtue, okay?

Who invented the light bulb?

answer to yesterday's question:
January 16 is 'National Nothing Day', that special day of the year when everyone is not just allowed but encouraged to sit around and... well, do nothing. So you celebrate it by not celebrating, if that makes any sense. The holiday was created in 1973 by Harold Pullman Coffin, who presumably didn't come up with it on January 16. Because that would just be silly...

Contrary to what the disclaimer says, you can ask me to design or revamp your blog, but there is a small associated fee.

This site is prettiest if you set your monitor resolution to 1024 by 768... but I won't hold it against you if you don't. Honest.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
