of shoes and ships and sealing wax...

With the profusion of chain restaurants in this part of town, why are none of them ethnic? That is to say, I could patronize a Chinese restaurant, but the food would pretty much taste the same. There's Mexican, but nothing spicy... you get the idea. In my copious spare time, I must learn to make hot & sour soup.

Bumper sticker: my Australian Cattle Dog is smarter than your honors student.

Last night, I nearly called the police to complain about loud music - then realized that the music being played at top volume (were this Spinal Tap, the knob would have been at eleven) was Enya. I grappled with the wording of the phone call ("excuse me, but my neighbors seem to be a little too much into Titanic...") decided that it could be worse, and turned up my Beethoven symphony instead.

I hate noisy neighbours! That's because with my shift work I often have to sleep during the day and I know I can't expect the rest of the world to stop for me. lol

Many, many thanks for the book. It arrived this morning just before I left for work.
