: As part of my ongoing experiments with poetic meter, I put up a feature that creates new Shakespeare sonnets from the existing ones. I've got two generation mechanisms and I'm not sure which is better, so I'm going to let them both run for a while.

A similar thing exists already, but it includes rhyme constraints (not a bad thing) and lots of undada human volition (well...).

I've also got one for Paradise Lost, but Shakespeare was more fun.

: We finally went to the famous Chinatown Ice Cream Factory and ate ice cream. I was intrigued by the chocolate pandan ice cream. "It's chocolate and pandan," said the cashier. Uh-huh. "Pandan is a Malaysian leaf." Okay, I'll eat a leaf. It was good, sort of nutty.
