Stuff, yeah, stuff is good

Man, I’m starting to get some readers. Well a few. Hi! And now I am under heaps of pressure to be big Mr. Cool-Writer-Guy. Hahaha. I’ve also been listening to a lot of radio lately. *wink*

Well anyway it was a pretty boring day. Spent a lot of time on mIRC and on ICQ, which is always kinda fun, but other then that, not a very exciting day. Yesterdays post “Geek Rant: Internet Anonymity” actually got posted today. I did type it last night, however I forgot to publish it. Oh well, we can just call it a slight modification. At 11am this morning it was still the 23rd somewhere…

Okay, here is something cool… How about some good old-fashioned riddles? Tolkien Riddles at that. So if you have read the hobbit, you will know these ones, they are Gollum’s Riddles:

What has roots as nobody sees, Is taller than trees, Up, up it goes And yet never grows?
Highlight here for the answer: A Mountain

Voiceless it cries, Wingless flutters, Toothless bites, Mouthless mutters.
Highlight here for the answer: Wind

It cannot be seen, cannot be felt, Cannot be heard, cannot be smelt. It lies behind stars and under hills, And empty holes it fills. It comes first and follows after, Ends life, kills laughter.
Highlight here for the answer: Dark

Alive without breath, As cold as death; Never thirsty, ever drinking, All in mail never clinking.
Highlight here for the answer: A fish

This thing all things devours: Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stones to meal; Slays king, ruins town And beats high mountain down.
Highlight here for the answer: Time

Oh yeah, I also started this weeks Friday Report a few days early and it is promising to be the best one yet. Hopefully in the same post I will be able to review Wil Wheaton’s book, Dancing Barefoot. That’s if it arrives at my place anytime soon. Amazon sent it a few days ago. Should be fun, so make sure you look out for it! :-)
