I believe I've heard of this special kind of "massage".

"To administer a lymphatic drainage massage, the individual is positioned so that maximum exposure is given to the target area. Several slaps with the open palm are applied to the area for about two minutes, with occasional pauses to rub the area in a circular motion. The resulting heat, along with the vibration of the skin and rhythmic contractions of the gluteus muscles stimulates the draw of fluid into the capillaries. The absorption of fatty acids and subsequent transport of fat causes the "orange peel" roughness to the skin to disappear. This may take several sessions to accomplish. The massage can be effective not only with Grade 3 cellulite but can be used pro-actively for Grade 1 and 2. However, these treatments have no proven results, and may only create short lasting effects."

DNA Lounge: Wherein I break the web site.

I've reformatted this here blog. Now each of the entries has its own page like 2009/06/14.html, in addition to being included in the whole-month view 2009/06/. I did this mostly because sites like Facebook that have a "post this link" command don't really know what to make of entries where the "permalink" for a URL has an #anchor on it: they would end up excerpting the text of the first entry of the month rather than the entry you intended to post. So this should help with that, I guess.

I still steadfastly refuse to put the newer entries at the top instead of the botom of the month-view, though. All modern blogging software does that, but it's just dumb. I do not approve. Who reads that way??

Speaking of Facebook, they recently added "user names", the ability to have more sensible URLs for your pages, but they will only let you set the name of a business page if you have more than 1,000 "fans". The DNA Lounge Facebook page hasn't hit 1,000 yet, so how about you go "fan" it so they will let me change that URL? Your prompt compliance is appreciated.

The "Save DNA Lounge" Facebook group has several thousand members, so I guess I've been doing a better job of hyping that one...
