I don't roll in things, I don't rub my head against trees, but each damn time I take the dogs out, my hair gets full of assorted bits.

Unrelated: Of course, since I went outside with the dogs, my hair was full of passengers. No bees, just...small sticks and leaves.

I really love "persnickety" as a word. It's just so satisfying to say, and it crunches in all the right places.

Well, there’s ice pellets falling from the sky. This will end well, I’m sure.

I have this deep, irresisitible urge to play Ronnie Milsap at high volume while office-dancing.

Yeah, it's about time to load the dishwasher and make my first jolt of coffee for the day.

*snortguffawchokegigglechuckle*

I haven't laughed like that since I was fourteen and sleeping with a seminary student. *wipes eyes* Goodness gracious.

"You think blackmailing Bezos is a good idea?"

"Look at how he dresses. That's not a man who wants anyone to see his dick."

"Still..."

(Stop me. I can't stop laughing, I can't breathe...)

WHAT KIND OF COKED-UP MOGUL DECIDES TO GO AHEAD WITH THIS BULLSHIT? HEARST IS ROLLING IN HIS GRAVE; I DEMAND A BETTER CLASS OF YELLOW JOURNALIST.

"Harry, it's Pecker again."

*massaging temples* "Put him on hold."

"Mr Pecker, you do realize that Mr Bezos will take this to the interwebs? And that Mr Bezos has a Medium account? And you still want to blackmail him IN AN EMAIL about dick pics? You're SURE?"

"You do realize, Mr Pecker, that you will forever be linked to Mr Bezos's...endowments? The internet doesn't forget that stuff."

*snortguffaw*

"And, Mr...Pecker...you want to put all your blackmail demands IN EMAIL? Is that correct? As your lawyer, I...I've...."

*snortgiggle again*

*breaks down in uncontrollable chuckles*

"So, Mr Pecker, just so I have this straight...you want to blackmail the owner of Amazon over dick pics? You truly, honestly, want to do this and think it's a good idea?"

*snortgiggle*

(And yes, "heen" is a writerly technical term for that sound you make when you run out of air laughing...)
