Well as I rub my eyes and look at the clock and see that it is REALLY LATE FOR ME (see daylight savings time, above), this is just the Sunday morning, I mean afternoon, pick-me-up I needed. Looking forward to this week, Amy!

I have just adjusted my clock.

Good morning Amy, I'm in Chicago, you're in Boston, what is the world coming to, did you know, about crows, there are these crows somewhere in the world (Japan) who like to eat nuts but don't want to hassle with pecking the damn shells off with their precious beaks. so they drop the nuts in the road so that cars will run them over, but because they're so damn smart, like little crow faced Don Drapers, they put they drop the nuts inside the lines of pedestrian cross walks and then stand on the corner and wait for the walk/don't walk signal to change to walk, then they amble out and collect the shelled bounty, which makes me pretty happy. watch here -
anyway, xoxo

Just bought the book. I am a hawk. Thanks for the shout out crow. So happy to see you here. This *is* going to be a great week. Love the photo too. If I weren't already me I'd want to be you.

I took the quiz, and I'm a spider, which isn't even an freaking animal. Please advise.

Go Amy. I read "The Anthologist" grinning ear to ear when it first appeared last September and think it makes a great focal point for a discussion.

I am an owl and the animals I need to look out for include crows..please advise.

Ever since I saw this, I've steered clear of water parks.

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.
