...Am now bereft, unbelieving, angry.

every hour my watch emits a chime. this is my signal to become mindful, document the moment, and decide what to do with the next hour. this site is an archive of such moments. The site's named after the terrorist-abetting Casio F91W wristwatch. Apparently they now come with a free Thesaurus. "Somehow managed to destroy my lovingly sculpted firefox profile of all its passwords and add-ons. Am now bereft, unbelieving, angry."

"Creeping inevitable hayfever explodes out of my nose, pouncing on my tired body like a tiger, leaving me ravaged and luckless."

I've been trying to come up with my own:

"I feel fetid, sallow, my nosehairs lunging at impartial air currents. Alas, I am impacted. Calm."

God, I just recently returned to using this watch because of fond memories from childhood. That little beep is a piezoelectric memento mori.

Reads like a deserved the bloody nose.

Apparently, you can be locked up in Guantanamo just for owning a Casio F91W. Reading this blog, I starting to come round to that way of thinking.

Am I the only one who misread that quote as "every hour my watch emits a crime"?

Crime-emitting diodes can emit such lavender prose, can't they.

Yeah, I didn't think Twitter could get any more masturbatory.

Cheaper than therapy, I guess.

The Honorable Senator from Louisiana will kindly desist from including the rest of us in his wristwatch sex-play, thanks.

This not the work of a thesaurus. This is someone composing on his fridge with a magnetic poetry kit.

@youlott: I'd be inclined to give your opinions of twitter more credit if they didn't seem tailor made to fit the character limits of said site.

Likewise critiques of this fellow's site would seem more reasonable if this thread didn't resemble a twitter copy called "Shitter: a place where assholes can do their business"

I foolproof way of increasing mindfulness, just gimme a second to roll you one.

The challenge of actually having a website has always been content. Blogs took off because all you had to do is say something every now and then. Now twitter-based sites reduce that to saying next to nothing -- and the SMS-length constraint gives you a plausible excuse. I'm waiting for the next big thing, in which you don't have to do anything at all.

being content with their own website/blog/twitter is a challenge most webmasters never overcome.

If this thread didn't resemble a twitter copy called "Shitter: a place where assholes can do their business"

Dammit.
