Remembering frytopia

A comment on facebook got me diving into my archives.  I didn’t remember that I used to call myself “Fry”.  Bloody Futurama ruined that forever.  In any case, I found some things I wanted to bring forward.

November, 2000: “Wouldn’t it be cool if our eyes turned gray along with our hair? Man, talk about being a creepy-looking old person. Maybe they’d just become translucent if you lived to eighty or ninety. Hmm. I may have to get some contacts in a few years, just to freak people out.”

January, 2001: “Dream: I’m leading the Rose Parade through the streets of Portland, but I can’t figure out the route and I keep getting lost.

Note to subconscious: Don’t you think you’re being a bit heavy-handed with the metaphors? Oh, and quit with the grain silos.”

September, 2001: Snif. Tonight will be the first time I’ve ever watched a Star Trek premier alone. Kel and I tried to get together, but we’re carless and bussing home after 10pm is no fun. I have great memories of parties and friends associated with various premiers and finales. I’ll have to do something to make tonight special.

Maybe an ice-cream cake and a gigolo.

October, 2001 [advice regarding the viewing of Magic Eye images]: The only way I ever got them was to use a technique that can only be tried privately.

First, take off all your clothes.
Next, put your nose right on picture.
Do the eye-relaxing thing.
Move your head away from the picture slowly.

It’s possible I’m lying about part of the instructions.

November, 2001: I spend too much time double-checking my sent items to make sure I didn’t send an email to the wrong person.

Maybe I should stop saying things I don’t want to get caught saying.

One more thing before I’m sick of my archives.  December, 2001, this was my kitchen:

Awesomest kitchen ever.

    I’ve been doing the same (just coming up to ten years on my blog), but keep finding horrible grammatical errors (I started the blog to practice Welsh), so I’ve had to stop.

    You’re right about that kitchen though. Awesome out the park, or however you say it.

      I do okay on grammar, but it’s useless to click most of my links, and I linked a lot. I was happy to see Exploding Dog archives still work perfectly.

    I remember how proud you were of that paint job. You made me some excellent puff pastry with asparagus in that kitchen.

    And! You introduced me to ‘welcome to woop-woop’ in that place. Still a favorite.

  3. No more gigolos for you! And I get half the cake!
