It really took me to the ages.... wow amazing creativity

Leo is certainly the last sign you would expect to find on Kafka's ascendant, and given our current state of knowledge, I think it simply irresponsible to accept the 7am birthtime as correct:


But surely the most Cancerian thing about Kafka is the turning into a huge beetle, if one may analogize among carapaced creatures.

Thanks, Mark. You comments always hit the spot. DL

Well, I don't know about all that, but the thing that really gets me is women
ALWAYS leave the seat down after they go to the bathroom, they NEVER put it
back up, even though they might very well be sharing living space with a man,
and they KNOW he likes to play "aerial bombardment" on the cigarette butts in
the toilet. It's VERY inconsiderate.

left the house
