*rolls over to the microwave and puts a bag of popcorn in*

We were just saying, we keep company late into the night, watching over the site and talking of this and that, and why not go where some other researchers can stop by and chat with us?

What were we talking about then? Sporks, was it? Or relocating cats to a new home?

What, your real-life job? This one isn't stupid, and look how you're hanging about after your shift is over.

*pulls piping hot bag out of microwave and decants it into a wicker basket*

I don't like the stuff, actually. I keep a jar of it around for my humane mouse traps, but I haven't had to use those in a couple of years, since the cats have stepped up to the plate. So to speak.

Did you see that clip of Hermain Cain forgetting that we've been dealing with Libya this year?

No, I missed that one. I kind of tuned him out when I realized it was the same guy who had made millions while paying his employees the absolute minimum required by law wherever possible. And no benefits.

It was even more egregious that Michele Bachman accusing Obama of invading Libya and then saying he'll be invading Africa next.

Cain was asked about Libya and simply couldn't answer because he had "too many things twirling in my brain."

*looks at the teevee in the upper corner and sighs* Has the History Channel jumped the shark? A reality show called Big Shrimping? Really?

See, that's why Bob invented jelly -- to give you a bit of leverage over the peanut butter in the sandwich.

The early morning shift? I'm keeping a clock set to summer time to remind myself that 5am used to be more reasonable. Mind you, this could be encouraging my daughter. Perhaps I'll change it and see if that helps her make the great leap backwards. Or do I mean forwards?

Pastey

It has text, some letters, some numbers. There's some characters like question marks in there too.

I'm using plain skin at the moment, so it's in blue on white, and in Times New Roman I think.

smiley - rose
