Blogger asks for sperm…

September 24, 2008

You find yourself amazed by something everyday on the net and today is no exception.

I found myself reading about a blogger on http://ebjones.typepad.com/eric_jones_weblog_the_gar/ who amazingly, but truly enough, is asking her readership for sperm.  I’ll plagiarize a few select quotes here:

I always imagined that I would have my first baby after being married and that having a family would be more of a partnership than a solo venture. But as we all know, life rarely goes as expected.

Now, I’m not looking for a source of child support or a baby-daddy in the sense that he should have any supportive role in the pregnancy or in raising the child, I just need some good, hearty seed.

Now, my first thought was to go to a sperm bank because it doesn’t get much more NSA than that, but I had to reject this idea.  First, pay for semen?  Really??  That notion goes into the same bucket as paying for air or sunshine or, well, sex.

And so it goes on to the point where she asks for donations, and not via Paypal…..

Anyway, read more via the above link and be amazed, appalled or simply leave your details for her…


Widget. It’s got a widget. A Widget it has got.

May 24, 2008

Ah yes, widgets.  The love of almost every blogger and I am no different.  So to match my new theme I am introducing a few new ones.

Like the ‘add my blog as a widget’, the ‘CFC’ widget and also one that might not be as apparent at first.  It’s an icon generator for commenter’s on the blog.  If you take a look at a couple of the comments made you will see that each commenter now has their own individual monster icon that will stay with them whenever they post a comment.  The monster icon is randomly generated when a comment is made.  I suppose it is about time I make my thoughts a bit more user friendly.  I am lazy and have a couple from the generic Widgetbox and have installed a couple on the webserver myself.

There might be more widgets or changes to the sites layout over then next few days as I try out new things and generally try to improve the eye candy and usability.
