So, I committed FB suicide, thus facilitating a need to fill the long minutes between hockey games. Hence, I give you my attempt at Onion headlines concocted over the course of one Facebookless evening:

Yeah, I know, they’ve all probably been in the Onion in one form or another, and there’s a decent chance I read them a while ago and dredged them out of my alcohol besotted memory pan. But, hey, I amused myself! That’s gotta be worth something….
My WordPress server (aka, Rasberry Pi), stopped working. Apparently the SD card reader decided it didn’t want to read anymore – not unlike a lot of people. Sigh. So after dicking around with it for a week, I gave up on trying to get it to read my stuff – as I have with a lot of people. Sigh. Went out and bought me a new Pi with a functioning reader. And now, in a desperate bid to acquire more functioning readers, I will be posting a bunch of my work here under CC licenses in the coming weeks….just as I did on my old site, which attracted no new readers. But, hey, you know me, ever the eternal optimist!
