what’s the story? there’s got to be a story. harrumph is a way better domain name than hchamp. i miss harrumph already.

there is no story. oh, and it’s a “web site.”

“there is no story” is pretty much always shorthand for “lawsuit”, isn’t it?

DerekSep 23, 2003 at 4:35PM

There must be a way we can blame this on Lance.

heatherSep 23, 2003 at 4:39PM

oh judith…. did you have to go an spill the beans? you know that we’re not allowed to talk about it.

Way to put the smack down on one of your fans. I don’t think she was trying to be rude.

heatherSep 23, 2003 at 5:10PM

smack down? i answered her question. how is that a smack down? there is no story.

the web site comment was for mr. kottke in response to “photolog.”

DerekSep 23, 2003 at 5:19PM

I was told there’d be a smackdown.

WaltSep 23, 2003 at 5:25PM

I see. The “web site” thing sounded like it was giving her a hard time about her domain name question. I retract my declaration of “smack down”. =-) I dig your site Heather, no matter what it’s called.

man, TWO “there is no story”s…that’s the ironic trucker hat of the bush administration. Heather Champ is Dick Cheney!

heather’s posted the real story on her top secret typepad blog.

AndySep 23, 2003 at 7:15PM

You mean the one she’s been building in her basement for two years? That top secret typepad blog? Oh wait, I guess it’s not so top secret any more now is it.

ok. so.. um. . there’s no story. im sure that hchamp will be the same great quality as harrumph and i will like it as much. i was fond of the name “harrumph” and wanted to see if there was a reason for the change. . but i see.. there’s no story.

Secret Typepad blogs are soooo 15 seconds ago. Heather’s already onto WiFi holographic tattooing from a chip in her ankle.

i for one welcome our new hchamp overlo— oh crap, wrong site.

anyway, heather: your photos are beautiful, regardless of the domain they reside on.

once again illustrating the difficulty of communicating with plain text. i want to see people meet in an ally afterschool or something.

“i heard, from Derek…”
