Voldemort is basically a middle school girl: he has a locket, a diary, a tiara, a ring, and is completely obsessed with a teenage boy.

Wait a few years and that will turn into saggy.

I love corn on the cob!

I especially love it grilled...and buttered...and salted/peppered.

When I logged on this morning, I was assailed with a variety of things about time...Why are there 60 minutes in an hour, for instance.

My first thought was to say it were more, it wouldn't be an hour, and if it were less, it wouldn't be an hour.

But that didn't answer a question.  So I clicked on the provided link.  We can blame the Sumerians for this.

Whatever became of the Sumerians, anyway?

TV shows about ancient civilizations seem constantly to be golly-goshing about what happened to the Mayans, but I truly don't know where the Sumerians went.

And what about the Etruscans?

Absorbed by other cultures is my guess.  That, or they were ushered through some sort of portal into other dimensions.

I have a doctor's appointment (podiatrist) in Aiken this morning.

Am having a cup of coffee and will soon depart for parts known to me.

Do not look to the skies, for I will be driving instead of flying.

Slept extremely well, dreamed pleasant dreams only wisps of which come to mind. 

One that reverberates is that I went to a restaurant and ordered pasta and wine.  My bill was $250. I asked the waiter to double-check and provide me an itemized bill. He agreed but looked put out.  The wine was $50, apparently, and the pasta was $200.  Happily, I awakened before having to resolve the problem.  It was so unlike me that I must have been channeling some other Ron in some other dimension.  I never order anything I don't know the price of before I order.

Rehearsal this morning. Ten pieces that some kids will be doing in a high school "musical theeder showcase" Friday evening. That might be a first for this school, but it's definitely a first for me to be involved in. The music is fairly ambitious and I can't wait to get over there and see how this is really going to go.

Oh, God, it's directed by Lonny Price, who directed the rock bottom production of Camelot with the NY Philharmonic! I wish he'd go back to acting; he's a much better actor than director.

I am so irritated right now. There's some effing car that's been sitting outside - never seen it before, that has been sitting there one house south and across the street, idling its loud engine since four-effnig-thirty, which is when it woke me up. I cannot sleep with that noise. I even went outside and glared at it and said "Shut that thing off or leave" - I have no idea if they saw me or heard me. I finally could take it not more and tried calling the Van Nuys Police Department, and despite them saying there was a desk officer twenty-four hours a day no one picked up. So, I called 911, because this crap is impacting my health at this point. They don't care and switch me to the LAPD, who never pick up. We've had a lot of car issues on this street - two where they broke into MY car before I cleared space in the garage, and very recently totally stripping the guy in the back house's car. Loitering is a crime. Making noise at four-thirty in the morning is a crime. And I'm screwed because three hours of sleep is going to make me sick and I've been having vocal issues anyway because of the allergies. I have no idea why they're there. And if I were not seventy-six and I had a weapon I could go out there and have a conversation.
