Dan's ideas

Dan, cover your big floppy ears.

If I had a hall of fame for former co-workers it would be:

1. Pretty barren
2. Topped by Dan

Dan has just left the 3rd funniest voicemail of all time on my mobile.

(The others were the Ginger Giant telling me what we were going to do in Sydney one time - the results were disgusting, psychadelic and hilarious and one from an unknown author who was inviting me to speak to a poetry circle. Ditto.)

Dan was wondering whether I was drunk in my last few posts and that a drunkeness indicator (DI) might be a good idea to avoid further confusion. I love indicators of all types, for though I recognise their ultimate futility they do give me a moment of hope; that this time the truth may finally be glimpsed and the seas of Despair and Ignorance which surround me on my remote hillock (my hillock of pillock?) will finally recede.

Before I go on, I must point out that the time on my Blogger thing is a waste of time. So if I do appear to be drunk at 08:37am on a Tuesday this is unlikely to be true. I never drink on Tuesdays.

I think in addition to this I am going to include a happiness indicator (HI) as this is part confessional after all and my psychological studies tell me happiness can indeed be measured.

If anyone has any other ideas for daily indicators I would be more than happy to oblige.

HI: 4 (/10)
DI: 0 (/10)

dan is full of ideas.

i like the drunkenness indicator idea. maybe an icon would be more interesting than plain text? i'm thinking a mug of beer that you put at the end of your post. the more mugs, the drunker you are (on a scale of 1-5 mugs), etc.

your 'happiness measured' link is broken, btw. think the formatting is off.

Everything is broken. I don't know how to do any of the things you have suggested. Is that really Pickle by the way?

Hello Pickle. I love ytou.

*About 3 mugs*
