So close bringing the typewriter out.

what is it with my fascination of dead writers? could it have something to do with pseudonyms? Example: say the user name of this blog "Bier de Stone" were to randomly vary his name on documents as "Bierde Stone" No big deal, right? Suddenly, Bierde dies AND of course nobody cares because nobody reads his blog anyway. (in other words, the writer behind blanketsin decides to abandon his blog for another one under a different pseudonym, so he simply waits for one of those bogus media reports of somebody dying in an auto accident — like street racing — SPLAT!!! a bloody mess in a parking lot)

Testing fwd from bot where I do my sharing and editing from…

Collapse )Must've been stressing about using Telegram in a timely manner before the bot quits mid-operation. So I sent this entry twice, the first time rushed to get the right image in the entry, blah, blah, etc. I attached a file from an unedited version which I was hoping to attach because… the wonders you could do with Telegram. I actually cropped an image from the Telegram app and the attachment here is the result.

I think I cleared two things up. The first is how efficient a last-minute edit might prove handy, and the second is that my bots work! From sharing point from an external app, to forwarding received 'share' with the gmailbot (when ready to compose. i.e. you don't want to clutter the gmailbot with attachments until you're ready to send them from the bot prompt.

Back in the 70's, k-12 consisted of six years in elementary, 3 years
in junior high, and 3 years in high school.

This one time (in band camp) I commuted to work riding public transit.
I transferred to a second bus in Hlwd and while waiting for the bus to
arrive, I remember seeing s.b. crying. I never asked her what was the
matter but I do remember that she reminded me of Pat Harvey. It
must've been 1996-ish.

Since that day in '96, Harvey has always been in the back of my mind.
Not until now have I decided to try and dig up some info on her. The
most interesting bit of info is the different day of birth information
conflicting between two websites.

I was trying to dispel the idea that Pat Harvey is African/American,
as I have a creeping suspicion that she might be Hawaiian. If I am
right, my next course of investigation will be whether her stage name
is different from the name she grew up with.

Little free library

This seems like it might be a fun project, but for an owl's nest. I
picked up a fake owl at the nursery store last year and I propped it
on my rooftop but it doesn't seem to scare the raccoons that continue
trampling over my rooftop as well as leaving turds up there. I've
thought of trying to build a trap, but I would be happy if they'd just
stop taking a shot on my rooftop. Lord knows I'm used to all the
trampling when a family of three has found their way into the crawl
space of my attic and has parties in there at the wee hours of the

I was intending to test the upload feature on gmailbot for attaching
pictures (as a file) to see if the title of the image file was used,
but as it happens, I'm using a new app called Scrap which is intended
for creating storyboards. And as such, the sharing process to get the
photo onto Telegram has changed slightly. I may have to spend hours on
end, leading to days, weeks and months, if not years, to figure out
how to edit the photo file titles to something more personable.
