No, that's fricking scary... :(

No, Tigs, what's scary is the level of detail they have on you in those databases that they have. I used to have access. You just can't imagine how easy it is to find out stuff about ordinary folks.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

People can find out your personal information anyway. Showing them a picture doesn't really add anything to that.

Now if it were a live shot or if I could see you naked through the window then that might be a different story.

Did anybody else notice a pattern in North America? It seems as though the FSM did a "swoop conversion" starting at Elvalia's place.

Where my house is on street view, it's actually there! But from overhead, it's not.

Pretty creepy, I tells ye.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

welcome, pastafarians to Bloomington, Indiana - home of Indiana University, 36,000 students and me, near by.

I put the tear drop by The Bake House because more likely to find me there (or the 'Spoon'*) good coffee and wonderous cookies. Walk the little yellow person around the square and you will find other places I frequent - the Trojan Horse, Roots, Athena's. Go down to 412 E 6th St. and that actually could be me and a friend sitting at the tables in front of The Runcible Spoon* - the best food and coffee in a town with hundreds of restaurants. More importantly it is owned by the nicest transplanted Irish guy - Matt O' Neill. He does not mind if I hang out for hours working or playing over a cup of mocha (http://www.runciblespoonrestaurant.com/owner.html - in description I am one of the "eclectic clientele" regulars). Tuesday nights come to the Irish session - often Grey (Larsen) is in the group playing - world reknown (no joke - http://greylarsen.com/) flutist, fiddler, concertinier and all around stand up guy. If you play join in.

So much more to B-town - which I love.

I'm the southern-most US Pastafarian on the map (so far). I put it on a street near my house, but not in the exact position of my house in case any of you decided to fly down to south florida and stalk me or something.

This is a really cool feature!

I don't even think that I can zoom in far enough to see my house... I just set the thing around where I figured I probably live.
