The Blog Twinning Project is kind of interesting. I’m wondering who is going to the site and assigning – for lack of a better term – twins to blogs. I suspect there is a significant number of bloggers who are pairing themselves with others, but to what end I cannot imagine. Not only do I not have a twin, according to the site, but I wasn’t even listed. (I added myself just now.) What does this mean? Not much, really. I don’t think that I have a twin. There’s that bastard hubris again. My blog is different. My life is unique. I am not like anyone else. But of course … you knew this already, right? … my blog is essentially just like everyone else’s. Or is it? Oh good grief!

Kiss off.

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.
