It's a Gravity Falls reference. That's the year that Blendin is from.

After a period of working 60 hour weeks every week, I'm back to a more normal-ish work schedule with a little more free time. Perhaps I'll have time for my thoughts to become more fleeting.

The closest I've come was a series of 52 shifts from back when I was doing a summer internship at the same time as my ongoing term-time part time work. Would start work at around 8.30am and, aside from the time it took to get from one workplace to the other, work until 10pm on two days in that week.

I'm a bit surprised nobody noticed that I gave chridd a rank.

The real question is since when does The Snide Sniper have the title of Site Admin?

I found it (after much hunting on archive.org)! It was "Like in Cinderella?" including the question mark.

I can't remember exactly, but I think one of the mods started a thread asking who wanted a title, and they said that it would all stop at midnight, and that was my response.

Oh wow, I vaguely remember that thread. I missed out on the fun and never got a title though.

The best grammars in linguistics leave much to be desired because their formal properties are underspecified, but the moment you try to solve it by devising formal properties the worse it gets.

You know, the etymology of the word "nebulous" is a bit confusing. What exactly is so mysterious and unknown about a nebula?

"Nebula" originally meant "fog" or "haze", so "nebulous" is like "foggy" or "hazy".

Just got back home after going away to attend a wedding - first one I've ever been to! I've known the groom since we were both 11. It was amazing.
