Cut cuddle and be Cute

A call for help: Needing a new Subtitle

It looks like I'll have a reason to change my subtitle soon, you know, that level two heading that says "the Radical Ramblings of a Tactless Teen"? That's gotta change, but to what?

I've thought of things like "Give me
LidoDerm
or Lyrica
Or give me death. But that seems a little too melodramatic, even for me. Plus, can you say "trademark lawsuit?"

So, this is where I need your help. What title would fit. I prefer whitty, catchy and somewhat descriptive/a warning of what people are getting into, but I'll take anything to help me get rid of my mindblock. So, dear reader, what do you think? Leave a comment, or
email me.
But whatever you do, please help!

Hugs!
Nickie

A couple cool resources

I've recently become aware of some new sites that might be helpful for people other than myself.
Dave Winer
wanted to be able to read news on his blackberry (a mobile device I don't understand completely). He found that a lot of blogs and news sites just don't translate well when read on a mobile device. He used RSS or OPML to create a few sites that are easier to read on a mobile device. It's interesting to me that a lot of the things that were hard for sighted people with mobile devices are hard with a screen reader or visual difficulty.

Anyway, there are two sites that might make your life easier:
BBCriver.com
and
NYTimsRiver.com

They work wonderfully on my BrailleNote mPower, and equally well on my laptop. It's one more way to get your news.

I hated
NeW York Times
in my bloglines because it gave me a lot of entries. This is a great example of how going to the news worked better than having the news come to me. Hopefully these help someone else other than me.
