who knew what the blue screw do

Wracking one's brain for a solution to a problem that is insoluble requires grit, patience and a bit of lime juice. I should know.

Celebrating piety with pie is an ignoble pursuit. Is a pursuit otherwise known as feline apparel?

I was asked a good question today, one to which I had no immediate answer at hand. This is a rare occurrence.

Being a celebrity is not really in my plan. I will have been known by at least a few people by the time people start talking about having remembered me. I wonder if there is or will be a website that catalogs the blogs of the deceased.

At 15,588 days old I still have quite a way to go before having to think about such things.

It is 10:31PM as I type this sentence. Here in Quebec we would denote this time as 22h31. I have come to use this as my preferential time notation method as I find it is rather succinct. This time notation also requires only the minimum of significant digits, so 8:00AM would be written as 8h, midnight as 0h.

Cryogenically freezing only my left ankle is probably not a great idea.

I went to Il Focaccia for supper this evening with someone from Texas, Indiana and Alberta. Only one of the four of us could say we come from a state or province that has more vowels than consonants in the name of our state or province.

There is something to be said about belly-button lint. I am just not certain what it is that needs to be said about it.

It is helpful to remember to stop at a red light. What to do at a plaid light, however, is less certain.

Are there many wands out there that aren't magic? It seems to me that this is the most common type. Given this, procuring a non-magic wand would likely be a collector's item.

I prefer military time. 0300. 1532. 0000. Or my favorite, 1735.

Umbilicus lint, extreme.

Please. Magic words... sheesh.

Impressed you recalled a post that is ten years old. 0300 is longer than 3h.

It's the 4 digit consistency I like.
