Code, nerd culture and humor from Greg Knauss.

So I walk into the supermarket and instantly become some sort of id-turned-physical. I wander up and down the aisles, yelping "Want that and that and that and that and that." I'm not shopping so much as impulse buying on a massive scale.

As I'm wheeling the cart back to the car, I realize that, among other things, I've bought:

  • A giant, mutant three-liter bottle of pineapple soda
  • JIF peanut butter, and the only reason I can think of is because "Choosy moms choose JIF!"
  • A one-pound bag of salami
  • Some hard, crunchy plums
  • A giant, mutant two-quart jar of salsa
  • Shampoo
  • Pop-Tarts, grape, with frosting
  • Some aerosol spray by the name of "Easy Cheese, Cheddar and Bacon Flavor"
Using this stuff to organize a coherent meal would be a real challenge if I didn't have a blender.

Hi there! My name's GREG KNAUSS and I like to make things.

Some of those things are software (like Romantimatic and Buzz Clock), Web sites (like the Webby-nominated Metababy and The American People) and stories (for Web sites like Suck and Fray, print magazines like Worth and Macworld, and books like "Things I Learned About My Dad" and "Rainy Day Fun and Games for Toddler and Total Bastard").

My e-mail address is I'd love to hear from you!
