On Nature and its Wonderous Creatures

I realize the heading "More Information about Nature's Best Friends" might at first be confusing to some of you, as in all likelihood unless you spend a fairly specific two and a half hour period of the week with me you have not received any information about nature's best friends. I will explain this concisely now: in nature, the kookaburra and the koala are best friends, and have the best best friend relationship (inter-species or not) of any two-critters on earth*.

*Some (including myself) have considered that the friendship between cats and ducks (patos and gatos in Spanish-speaking locales) have a better best-friendship than the koala and the kookaburra. This is an issue too complicated to get into right now, suffice to say that the matter is not settled.

Information for Parents - or - a P.S.A.

In other news I realize this place has not been "up to snuff" in fast and efficient delivery of Information. Let me assure you that this is not because anything interesting or remarkable is in the works, my taciturnity is the sole product of poor planning, reticence, corrective lenses, and bad weather. Look forward (or don't) to more of the same in the immediate and distant future.

They Showed a Looney Toon Before Casablanca Last Night

And in other news the world is a livable place. Casablanca, however, continues to be a wildly inappropriate movie for Making Out Valentines Day Couples Who Deserve Misfortunes.

What Kind of Day is Today

It is the kind of day where this story seems almost feasible and you must occasionally consider cutting off your own feet because there doesn't seem to be any realistic way for them to ever be warm and dry again, so removal becomes higher on the triage list than the endless cycle of sock-changing and towel-drying.

What is the Weather Doing Right Now #10

It is 16 degrees with winds at a terrifyingly steady 33 mph. This is the kind of weather God brings out when he’s doing dry-runs for the apocalypse. Everybody should say whatever it is they need to say because weather like this is a good reminder that tomorrow is not guaranteed.

What is the Weather Doing Right Now #9

It is 47 degrees and sunny. No one has ever felt this good about a 47 degree day.
