Strange things about today:

1) A sudden hatred of the word "snark" and all its permutations: "snarky," "snarkiness," "snark-fest," etc. This word is finished; this word should never have started.

2) I received literally no e-mail today. That's plain weird.

3) I went to write something down—on, you know, actual paper with an actual scribbling implement—and spent a good six to eight minutes looking for a pen that was not a Sharpie. What kind of writer cannot find a pen in under fifteen seconds?

4) I keep wondering—as in I am unable to free myself of the question—if Johnny Depp (as Willie Wonka) will utter that Shakespeare quote from the original C & the CF: "So shines a good deed in a weary world." And while we're on the subject...Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing?

5) There are other odd little things about today, but they're even more banal than the previous four, so I'll spare you.

I think my best course of action at the moment would be to vacuum. Off I go.

I'm so out of the loop. What does snark mean?

you mean not a single piece of email, including spam? that's a twilight zone moment.

I did get Spam. Spam and advertising. It was so sad. And then after reading this pitiful post, my Auntie G. sent me an e-mail.
