Weblog Junior High. Just in case you felt a little left out trying to figure out the pecking order, you'll be happy to know that Mr. Haughey is a jock. I won't even mention the K word.

Isn't this a bit, er, nostalgic?

And here I was going to vote sjc into the 'rebel' section.

That geek.

My apologies if it's dusty. I'm one of those dratted journallers. We don't know nothing 'bout no blogs.

This is two years old, and if anyone sees my description, it's alluding to this version of my page.

I thought masturbatory web-scene nostalgia was something that had worked for you in the past, Scott?

Just as you are now and shall ever be Metafilter Parody Guy, poor Neale is now and ever Weblog Junior High Guy. Y'all made your memes, now lie in 'em.

re Matt:
Jonathan Franzen look out. Er, maybe not.

I must note that the 'Sluts' section is NSFW (not safe for work), as I recall from many, many, years ago. *ahem*

whoa, a third of those URLs seem to be dead. The weblog scene is as ephemeral as ever.

I was thinking John Turturro.

I was left out again. This really is like being back at school.

Michelle: that's half-assed snark, okay? Get it right.

Metafilter Parody Guy? Is that like being Joe Isuzu?

feelinglistless: i can get a couple of guys to kick the crap out of you by the stairwell after 5th period, if you are feeling particularly nostalgic.

Scott: Some, except Joe Isuzu gets paid for it. What's your excuse?
posted by Sapphireblue at 3:01 PM on January 8, 2002

Woah. For a second there, I thought I was back in 1999.

What a happy time it was: y2k frenzy was all the rage; Weblogs were still virgin territory; and Kottke was new to me. Ahh, innocence.

Michelle: I know that my SG is not giving me attitude in public. I know it.

I was wondering about the dead@32 guy the other day. Did he make it past 32? His site is gone now...that does not bode well
posted by Foaf at 4:18 PM on January 8, 2002

it was just a ploy to get readers. he tried that and then he got all mad at the community when they didn't flock to his site, as I recall, and became "bitter at 31".

I think he turned out to be that john grohol, the psychologist that is occasionally quoted in articles about weblogs. maybe dead at 32 was a research project or something.

Check out this amusing teen blog, if you can appreciate that sort of thing - I think it's a riot, personally!

Wow. Remember when Neale was irreverent and not just another cog in the weblog establihment wheel? I do.

I learnt so much from that site.
