Things get around the internets

Friday, one of my friends sent me a photo of the "Rosas" lady (those of you from L.A. know who I'm talking about), along with a wav he recorded on his phone of her saying her infamous "rrrrrrosas?" Told me to do something with it for our email circle.

Well, I did this. Quick and dirty, but really didn't think it would get much interest outside our little group.

But, as a precaution, I thought it probably be a good idea to optimize the 300k gif (down to 70k). Then, since I was still hosting the wav file, I thought an even better idea would be to put that permanent account at LJ to work and let them host the image.

Good thing I did. I noticed a fairly substantial increase in traffic today. Looking at the referrers, I found this mention on la.com.

Now, I only wish I'd actually have updated my web page in, oh, I dunno, the last 5 years or so.
