THE MOST INTERESTING MAN/WOMAN IN THE WORLD (issue 26)
- [It's "Positivity Wednesday" again and, methinks, just in time. A certain
amount of disquietude we're seeing being posted today, and I myself had a
meltdown yesterday. Formatting is a huge deal for a dweefus like me who
likes "end-of-lines" to go where he wants them and next lines to start where
he starts them and white space to appear artistically all around--just
so--because, hey, that's what artists do. From others who've told me,
however, that what they saw on their monitors wasn't jumbled, I'm now
thinking my "problems" are more due to Hoozissface Gates and allah his
Microsoftic Minions and all this toadally whacktoast engineering that
THEY'VE done to Office Outlook, than to whatever cybertronics Dartmouth is
using. Still, though, at least one other Lister revealed formatting
problems yesterday around the time of my post(s)--with regard to making
columns for track times--and weird word-wraps and broken hyperlinks are
always my pet peeves! In any event, software engineers who always want to
do our thinking for us and auto-correct our spelling, punctuation, and line
breaks... well... they've just "inspired" a brand-new BJF composition.
[But back now to Wednesday and http://www.zombierunner.com/ and DC's
Zombie-partner Gillian Robinson who is, today for sure, THE Most Interesting
Woman in the World :]
She has graced the black-and-white covers of some of the finest sports
magazines in the universe; and, after she appeared on them, they turned full
Once, on a whim after she got a tattoo on her leg, it became one of
America's most popular historical symbols for a world-famous highway.
And yes, while wearing new zombierunner "kicks," she did indeed "get her
kicks" on it.
Her original online diary actually gave birth to the entire cybertronic
movement of internet blogging.
It is doubtful anyone today knows what "blog" stands for, but it was she who
coined the term: an amalgamation of two different words, called "web log."
When she teamed up with her current "worser half," (heh-heh) the entire
mail-order industry was magically transformed.
She had been observed, while working in her earlier living-room warehouse,
to know amidst heaping piles of retail wares where every single paper clip
was, where all the shipping labels and boxes were, and she even kept a
running count of all those pieces of styrofoam excelsior used to pack every
She has since become The Patron Saint of the Mail Room--every business on
Earth's mail room.
An excellent athlete in her own right, she has circumnavigated on foot the
entire California Bay Area, finished several Badwaters, bested the cutoffs
of boucou ultras, and probably did more Dipseas than anybody.
She is The Most Interesting Woman in the World.

This Halloween, because of yours troubly's well-known rear-ender droppings
capabilities, I feel pretty qualified to go as Lady Godiva's horse.
