User counter script

Wednesday, April 28th, 2004

Thanks to a recommendation from Don, I’ve signed up with nerds onsite for a free user counter (it’s on the right for the minute, just under the search box). Very easy to set up and I like the fact that you can specifiy your own text, both for when there is 1 user online or more.

and who gives a ****? But this tickled me:

Forget the war and global warming, the biggest question at Hollywood parties for weeks has been whether Ross and Rachel end up together in the Friends finale next week.

Now David Schwimmer may have let the cat out of the bag by inadvertently mentioning that he and Jennifer Aniston may make a guest visit as a couple on co-star Matt LeBlanc’s planned spin-off series, Joey.

LeBlanc even gave Aniston a copy of his show’s script when they met for lunch last week.

The final Friends is expected to get America’s highest ever viewer rating and one rival channel has announced it isn’t even bothering to put on a competing programme.

** Station staff will be filmed sitting in the studio watching Friends.**

Update: Melissa has a Test your Friends IQ quiz from People Magazine.

A joke

Tuesday, April 27th, 2004

Two busty coeds—a Southern belle and a New England yankee—are in Florida on spring break. The belle turns to the yankee and asks,

“So, where y’all from?”

The yankee turns up her nose and says, “I’m from a school where we don’t end sentences with prepositions.”

Without missing a beat, the belle replies, “So, where y’all from, bitch?”
