three minute anthrax

by mg at 09:02 PM on October 15, 2001

As if living in New York wasn't hard enough, now we've got to watch out for airplanes, falling buildings, and anthrax.

We thought we had it hard a month + 6 days ago, when all we had to deal with was commuting, paying our exorbitant living expenses, whether the Mets could pull off the greatest comeback in baseball history, and finding a job, since so many of us, especially the people I knew, worked for dot.coms.

Now, every time a plane flies overhead, you have to look up. Every time someone talks in another lanugage, and thats pretty damn often, you have to wonder what they are really talking about. And every time you open the mailbox, you have to wear a pair of rubber gloves.

The strangest thing about the Anthrax scare (and I hope this is amusing to more than just me, snaggle, space and swingcheese), but the strain of anthrax that has infected people here in New York and Florida was developed in Ames, Iowa, in the 1950s. PArty capital of the world, my ass.

will be slowly plowing through old 3MBs :

lex @ cucumber (see october 2)

robyn @ ain't too proud to blog

mel @ the blog without a name

swingecheese @ surreally

if you've written a 3MB that you haven't already let me know about please do.

And yes, it's amusing to me as well.

Thanks for remembering, mg. :p

I sometimes forget your alive. If you posted a little more often, maybe I'd remember you. 'Sides, I only had three minutes.

You know I was just thinking if I had to hear about anthrax one more time...

haha but no I did catch that Iowa thingy today. Almost like in some way it just shows you how small the world really is...

I think lex has been doing it unintentionally for a while *G* Or is that the "3 hit blog" ?

Movable Type has the option to categorise your entries, and I've defined the 3MB category...it so far has two entries, I'll find a way of letting my readers search by category and you can see it...either way, I plan on adding to it :)
