In line at 7-Eleven with a four-pack of White Zinfandel, a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, and a package of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

How was my day?

So Aliza is just a cover for Eliza, eh?

Nope! (They're pronounced differently anyway). Someone imported peacocks to Florida decades ago, and they're a local, nonnative wild species now. In some areas, they're all over the place.

Flamingos are Floridian, but they moved out when people moved in. So while they're indigenous, they're no longer residents. They are, however, kept at the race track . Smile

A little known fact...

Due to mirror neurons, you will also sneeze when you pluck out someone else's nose hair.

It's a standard test for empathy. Take 10 people and pluck out their nose hair (best, when they are not expecting it, e.g. when they are sleeping) ... If you sneeze each time: high empathy; if you don't sneeze you might be a sociopath.

Try it. Get back to us with the results.

If they punch you in the face and you punch them back, is that also empathy?

Hehe, I know. I've been pronouncing it the way it's spelt (that's what happens when you've been blessed with a phonetic language Rolleyes )

Do you know that some time ago someone especially brilliant, decided that the US should have *all* the birds mentioned in the works of Shakespeare...


... and then he introduced starlings Facepalm

I actually only saw the flocks they're capable of forming last year. I swear, what descended upon our garden (and the whole street) was like something out of Hitchock Gasp

Also, who uses pastes to wash the dishes? There comes a point where it becomes a runny, disgusting mess that looks like something the cat vomited. And this particular one smells like it too Dodgy

The e makes the "ee" sound. The I makes the "ist" sound. Seems legit to me. Drinking Beverage

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Atheist means not being a theist.
Athiest means being the most athy.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!
