Someone sent me the Christian the Lion video and as I watched it I assumed things would go horribly wrong and admit I was a tad disappointed when they didn't. Does that make me a bad person?

not at all. however, pehaps we've understandably gotten used to the idea that things are going to go wrong. i certainly have. but a lion is very unlikely to let you down. people think they're lazy -- especially the males -- but they're actually very active, especially late at night. they're constantly fighting and competing with hyenas. have you seen the video where the lions attack the young cape buffalo? that's got to be the most viewed of all time. there was even a 60 minute tv show about it.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
