Creepiest or coolest thing ever?

You make the call!

In case you're wondering (and who wouldn't, really?), this is a star-nosed mole and no, that is not the view from the rear. Check out the top 10 oddballs of the animal world at for more. I also love the one that looks like a cross between an orangutan and a lobster.

I'm off to dance my buns off to the Crazy 8s at the Bite of CilleyLand.

While I was brushing my teeth this morning, I figured out how (or why) there could have been a stampede at a Hindu temple in India. It has to do with the cows. I'm guessing there was a large contingent of sacred cows milling about, and it was the cows, rather than the worshippers, who stampeded.

Not sure why I didn't figure this one out while I was chowing down on a cheeseburger last night, but there you have it.

Keeping my fingers limber

After returning from vacation, I apparently had forgotten how to type. Plus I wanted to post here more than once every three months.

Random observations:

"Sexigesimal" is not only a real word, it's not even what you might think it is.

Over 160 people died in a stampede today at a Hindu temple in India. What could possibly be a reason for a stampede at a Hindu temple? I doubt it's to get there before all the communion wafers and wine are gone. More people died in this stampede than did in descending from K2.

I love Donna Andrews' books. Even the titles crack me up.

It's still hot in CilleyLand.

My kitty may be getting ready to go to that big catnip patch in the sky.

Who bankrolls a movie like Pineapple Express?

My head hurts.
