  Archives. Yes, I know that Blogger isn't posting links to the monthly archive versions of the blog. I don't know why. I think it's having too much fun producing individual pages for each new label or tag for the post. I'll fix that manually, if I can persuade myself to not add anything unnecessary, like a highlights summary, or wav files of my stomach growling. Or non sequiters...

Yes, the rumors are true: I am thinking of reposting my content here from the late 1990s and early 2000s. But every time I think I should, I realize that it all looks really good where it is at If you use the Wayback Machine, which has 85 BILLION pages stored up, and look up "" (because you have it memorized and have been pining for it ever since I changed hosts and servers), not one, not two, but SIX versions of my old website, the Teahouse for the Contemplation of Enchiladas ( come up. And, somehow, despite my completely 'let's see what this does' approach to HTML, many of them look pretty good. Some decidedly do not look good as anything but minimalist art, especially within the enchilada recipe sections, where they are white-on-white because of my ingenious (not) way of using half-toned images as backgrounds. But the kind folks there have induced some sort of forgiveness-of-my-lameness algorithm, and most of the pages are readable. And look decent, for their era.

Even the pages documenting my Nepal trek are there. So you can read entries with names like "Sam Ten Detching Choling to Tubten Choling: Enough Syllables to Start a New Monastery."

I even have an archive. In the archive. Which is... SO self-referential.
