A morning coffee
is my favorite way
of starting the day,
settling the nerves
so that they don't later fray.

"No, in my many years of observing, studying and attempting to understand foxes, I cannot recall one instance in which one said, 'Wa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pow'. Next question?"

Career Counselor: Valerie, I'm not sure that healthcare is the right path for you.

Me: Why not?

Counselor: You burst out into giggles whenever anyone says 'analgesic'

Me: *giggling and nodding agreement*

New (to me) scam.

"Power company" calls. Power will be cut off in 30 minutes unless I pay right now. Had my name, address, and phone number, probably from one of the data leaks. Rep was a human, sounded like the real thing.

Hung up, called phone # on bill, verified we're good.

Once, without bothering to read the back of a movie box, I picked up a movie callee "28 days" as I'd heard it was a pretty good survival/horror movie - my SO loves a good zombie flick. And I was impressed to see Sandra Bullock staring in it.

Still, it was a good movie.

I don't believe we have ever seen "28 days *later*", the film I thought I was picking up.
