..... Okay, so this might not have been my most clever or original April Fool's Day prank ever, but I had fun with it. Thanks to everyone, here and on Twitter, who played along with their comments. You kept a grin on my face all day, and I've been desperately needing that lately. (It's been a really hard couple of weeks, which is why I didn't really have the energy or brainspace to come up with anything that I actually thought would fool anyone -- just something that I thought would make you grin and wonder, "Oh, now what's he up to?")

Extra-special bonus points to anyone who actually spotted this: The purported title of the story, "Tricky Sale", was an anagram for "Rick Astley." (And if you saw my post on Twitter about how the story had a "similar structure and voice" to a story called "Age Proving You Uneven", you can probably guess what that was an anagram for, too.)

Oh, yes, and -- that first link I posted, to episode one? That link was real -- I really am working on starting a podcast, and as soon as I resolve some issues with my currently dead computer (and with me being a lazy bastard), you'll start seeing real updates from me about it. Cheers.

...Bjorn and I were so sure you were skipping a year because we didn't have time to get to Episode 2. Oh, we were lame.

Need computer help/parts?

I played the "which link is the Rickroll" game, and guessed right on the first try. :)

Then I went back and listened to ep.1, and enjoyed that as well.

I didn't listen past the intro on Ep. 2 for lack of time. :P

*a light dawns*

.... Ooooohhh! See, when you said (http://icebluenothing.livejournal.com/161550.html?thread=774414#t774414) "disappointed to see that this is your only post for 4/1" I thought you meant "this joke wasn't funny enough!" And I was all like, "Well, fuck you, pal!" *laughs*

Yeah, no, I didn't get that it was your joke. ;)
