1. From multiple sources on the net, this
, from the good folks at the Christian Science Monitor, may just be the headline of the year: "Monkeys hate flying squirrels, report monkey-annoyance experts....The research could pave the way for advanced methods of enraging monkeys." (I am quoting. Directly.)
Had I but known, before now, that people could actually have careers in enraging monkeys and developing advanced methods to do so, my life would be very, very different. And undoubtedly haunted by raging packs of infuriated monkeys wielding Stitch toys and wearing hulu skirts shrieking that I have halted their can-can lessons. Or something.
Anyway, good to know that in this, the monkeys are On Our Side.

Put things in bag.
Put books in bag.
These days, preparing for travel involves charging the scooter, the phone, the netbook, the Sony reader, the iPod - I could probably add more if needed. Charge then travel. In contrast to the medieval method of travel, then horse charge!
3. Speaking of which, a general reminder that my internet access from tonight until at least Sunday will probably be spotty/limited/not a major priority, although I'll still be trying to check email and Twitter on occasion, and may try to sneak in a blog post now and again.
