Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Sure, it's par for the course for the KGB.
The little sink sits atop an exposed white plastic pipe, stuck to the wall and surrounded by an unruly gob of caulk. Might as well forget about a shower curtain. The way the bathroom is set up there's no place to affix a rod.
The single room has two lamps — which don't have light bulbs, but that's okay because they aren't near any unused outlets. An overhead chandelier has five shades, three of them with bulbs. There's no phone. The television doesn't work. A brainstorm interrupts an unsuccessful effort to plod through the manual — in Russian. There's no battery in the remote!
Comrades! You guys spent decades extolling the virtues of communism. Google "Soviet apartment block" to refresh your memory and revel in the utilitarian conformity. Then tell me your hotel isn't 10 times better!
