- 9/28/98 18:40:46 - I'm back from my weekend. Thanks to everyone who was concerned about
the lack of the usual daily updates on the World of Goo, they'll be coming as always. Some random tidbits:
- www.googoodolls.com is active now, but it is just a mirror of the new WB site, or vice-versa.

apparently sang "and I won't tell 'em you're gay," and I've heard from multiple sources that

120 Minutes next Sunday, but again, I haven't confirmed this.
