Super Weird Confession:  

When I noticed that image mouse-over notes were back on (at least the desktop) flickr (yeah, I still poke around at flickr) the other day, this was the first thing I remembered as worth looking for because it is the consummate tag.

I’m in a semi-constant state of panic* that one day I won’t remember everything.

Panic comes from the French panique, from modern Latin panicus, from Greek panikos, from the name of the god Pan, noted for causing terror, as he was to whom woodland noises were attributed.  Which is weird because that is not really my go-to Pan association. Which in turn is a nice distraction from dread about the potential/probable/inevitable(?) obsolescence of my electric meat computer.  But let’s think about flutes and shepherds and dagrons instead.
