To all three of you reading this via LiveJournal syndication, sorry for filling up your friends list with repeats. I changed the footer on the feed, and didn’t realize that LiveJournal will repost articles as new if there’s any change.
I guess this means I’ll have to be careful about things like fixing typos on the latest 15 posts.
Interesting. Apparently someone has set up a syndication feed for this blog on LiveJournal: ksquaredramblin. I’ve been thinking about setting one up more or less since I joined LJ, but I resisted since I worried people might start commenting in two different places. I guess it’s a moot point now!
I more-or-less randomly wondered about the origin of the phrase, “My hed iz pastede on yay!” and did a quick google search (the phrase + “origin”). This led me to the Google Meme Observatory, which I am hereby posting so that I can come back and look at it when I have time to, y’know, look at it.
As for the phrase, someone had tracked it down to a particular ex-LJ community, and found the original April 16 post in which someone coined the term regarding an apparently bad image manip featuring the faces of Merry and Pippin. One of the replies: “you do realize you’ve started a goddamn PLAGUE with that expression over at livejournal?” Prophetic words, indeed.
