this is to push the clothes post away

I got a peanut butter cookie today. Actually, I was going to get ice cream, but I was standing in line (it was the longest line in the world, plus is was composed almost solely of clearly contagious sick children), when I remembered I ate an entire pint of ice cream last night. Rather than decide I'd had enough sugar for a few days, I only decided I'd had enough ice cream, and went over to the cookie counter, which had a shorter line. But the cookie must have fallen out of its bag, and much much later, when I remembered I'd gotten it, I went out to the car to discover it was on the floor of the car. Such was my pain that, like Darth Vader, I fell to my knees and cried "noooooo!!!" into the night. It's not like I know my neighbors anyway.

I got 5 DVDs. They are: the Wizard of Oz box set, The Saint, Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, The Office: Second Series.

Have you ever accidently, 5 times in a row, implied you were gay to someone you really didn't want to imply that to?

Today was drizzly, but near my house there was a wonderful petrichor, and I momentarily felt like I wasn't in this world anymore. It's such a soft scent. It's almost something I have to sense with something besides my nose, but it was there. (this is the first update in keeping with my new resolution to use a really good word once per update.)

And lastly, I saw an absolutely GREAT play last night! It is The Rivals, and it was the opening of the Austin Shakespeare Festival. I haven't laughed that hard at a play possibly in my whole life. I'm going to see it again next week, along with Richard III, which I have never seen or read.

That is indeed a great word! I looked it up on the wordaday website, which included a written pronunciation guide and a soundfile pronunciation guide that seemed to contradict each other.

I'm sorry that was me.

I am not sorry that was you. I am glad you like that word. I also like that it means something like 'the blood of god from a stone.'
