"Taken out of context, I must seem so strange ..."

Losing track of the days again ... thank goodness "Survivor" begins tomorrow night so that I can remember when it's Thursday again.


I have absolutely nothing to write about tonight, because my day was full of it. Nothing, that is. I'll try to do better tomorrow.


Jimmy called tonight and told me that the airport security smooshed through his luggage looking for a bomb. They found his book of matches instead. He's been traveling with the same book of matches since the early 1990's. They removed the dangerous matches from his luggage to save the world another airline disaster. No big loss, right?

Wrong. That little book of matches was where he hid his emergency stash of a $100 bill. Stupid airline monkeys.
