The Future is Last Week

In the spirit of a magazine, I'm going to try starting to have some regular features, I dunno. It sounds like fun.

At any rate, the first feature is "The Future is Last Week", in which I draw to the attention of the small fragment of the world that reads this signs of a science fiction future now. Robots and the like will be pretty standard, flying cars, etc.

But today's is kinda weird. People name their kids after special places, the city where they met, relatives, good friends, etc. But a Romanian (Transylvanian to be exact) couple named their son after the Internet service they used to meet- Yahoo!.

Imagine if the kid drowns: "Yahoo goes Belly Up!" Stocks plummet.

As a note, miusheri, that cute girl Remy's been hanging out with alot, will be in town this weekend. Go her, what with her test teach at NH and all that cool shit. Much hanging out shall be had, and she'll be my date to the company party. How sexy is that? I think it's sexy. And yes, the bossbeasts know she's coming, and they're cool with it. Go fig.

Anyway, aside from a block of Saturday, we're definitely looking for people to hang out with. Jameseseses is coming up Friday night, Elizabeth said she was coming up Saturday (and is going to help Minna get herself all sexx0red for coming to the dinner while I'm at the meeting that preceeds it). Keep in mind, I'll have to be at the meeting from 1:00-5:30 without Minna, so's I'm looking for people to keep her occupied till 5:30, when she can join me and stuff.

Okay, I admit, this isn't as much fun as that kid named after Yahoo!, but it's a bit more useful.
