In which I discover a new blog and reference some other people with the last name Gagne

Last night I found the blog with the coolest ‘design’: thinkdink! What’s even cooler is that a) she’s like the fifth really cool Jessica I’ve met in the last two months b) she has a friend with an awesome site as well…

I bonked on guessing what dink acronyms. (Am I allowed to verbify acronym?) It’s right there on the main page: delving into naked kvetching. I guessed David Is Not Kidding! And yes, Jess, there is a hockey player named Dave Gagne. Please, one and all, note that my name is David and not Dave. My arm of the Gagne clan pronounces it gag-nee and not gah-nyay, in case you’re wondering. There is also a pitcher for the LA Dodgers named Eric Gagne. The Minnesota Twins had a Greg Gagne for a while. Several weeks ago I had a list of a gaggle of David Gagnes I had found on-line.

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
