UPDATE: Hubs writes, “In the alpine areas here in Colorado we have pink snow too. However, here it is an algae called chlamydomonas nivalis that gives the snow a bright pink hue. It’s called watermelon snow and surprisingly enough it also gives the snow a watermelon flavor that is easily digestible (in resonable quantites).” Link
So I was expecting all these hits. And then for my server to get overwhemled. And then for me to have to shut down this blog. And then I’d become famous for losing my blog to algae, kinda like dooce was made famous because she was the first to get fired for blogging even though she really wasn’t the first. And then I’d be the coolest guy ever, probably.
Instead I got 9 hits from Boing Boing today. Maybe it’s because I don’t know how to spell ‘reasonable’ or ‘quantities’.

Oh yeah, while I’m thinking of it, I have nothing against dooce or kottke, I mean, I read them when I’m really bored sometimes too, but something tells me they don’t know how to have a good time. So sleeeeeepy!
