I knew it! Beer really is good for you!

Everyone I know in the UK better go to this for me...

Whee, packet-sniffing at it's finest

A whole refrigerator on the size of a quarter

Woman struggling to support her daughter gets her expelled for stooping to stripping

Our impeccable police force

I'm surprised they didn't try to give it a ticket

14-year-old racks up 2500 SMS messages in his first month. Get this kid AIM.

Carrots were originally purple

The pillars of creation are nothing more than an illusion

The mind electric

MIT's speech in video editing software can produce convincing fakes

That was exactly what we both needed. I didn't know it at first, but yesterday was one of the best days in a long time. At dinner with Lex, P paged me. I had been stuck thinking about her the whole day, trying to make sense of it all. I called her immediately (thanks for the cellphone, Lex!), we made plans to get together last night. We finished dinner, and on a whim hit Penny Pincher's to buy that pink sequinned gas mask P and I saw there a while ago. Sadly, it had sold just last week. Not to be discouraged, I dropped off Lex, sprinted to and through Meijer, getting the supplies I needed to make P breakfast for this weekend, stashed them at my place, headed out.
I got there early enough to have a shot at picking her up from class, but I couldn't remember the building she was in. I made a guess and asked a passer-by where it was, they didn't know. Good thing, it was the wrong building anyway. I headed to her dorm, waited outside for her. She came shortly, we spent a while just being close, recovering. It felt perfect, it was exactly what we both needed. Eventually, we hit the Blockbuster for a movie, ended up with Go! I had seen the last half, so it didn't make any sense then. Now that it does, it's just twice as messed up. One way or the other, I feel great today (outside of a sore neck), which will help with all the domestication I've got in store tonight. Must get a new carton of smokes, an oil change (picking up a new drain plug first so the greasemonkies can replace the one I stripped trying to teach P hot to change oil), stop at Meijer for a roll of quarters, do laundry, dishes, and clean up the house. You know, I don't mind one bit, as long as this feeling lasts.

did anyone notice you coming in late today? and hopefully, you didn't have a ticket waiting on your windshield this morning, did you?
