Life goes on....
80,000 people dead so far on the other side of the world. It is completely inconceivable to me, as I look out my office window at this drab winter day. The temperature here this morning is 36 degrees, above freezing for the first time in quite awhile. Little things like that make me happy, little things like above-freezing temperatures, friends, and the fact that a heated mattress pad arrived in yesterday's mail.

These are the random things I thought about last night while trying to fall asleep. With shipping, I spent around $80 on my electric mattress pad. Although eventually it should greatly lower the cost of heating my house, that's one dollar for every thousand people killed, spent trying to keep my feet warm. I contributed $50 to UNICEF yesterday, which is more than nothing but less than the cost of a heated mattress pad. (Not that I was thinking in terms of mattress pads when I made my donation, it just occurred to me when I looked at the shipping label.)

Last night my favorite barista, my favorite librarian, and I enjoyed a delicious lasagna dinner cooked by the opera singer who doesn't do karaoke, then we all played euchre. We laughed a lot, talked a lot, and generally enjoyed one another's company. I am thankful for my friends.

What does this all mean? Well, nothing, except that the world is very complex.

So what...now I'm to be known as "the opera singer who doesn't do karaoke?" Fine. Now I'm gonna have to post to explain that! :)

Re: ???

*grin* Well, I will probably continue to change your name as I see fit... Gotta get these digs in somehow, you know!

I brought my paperwhite kit to work, because flowers in here sound nice. Now I just need to figure out how to make them grow.
