The brevity you appreciate from a snippet; the meatyness you love from a tidbit.
1. At 3 o'clock in the morning, everything on TV is creepy. It's flipping between red ants eating slugs that never had a chance (they're all meat) and Rachael Ray drinking margaritas (oddly creepy) and the X-Files where a vomit monster heals the wounded.
2. Trying to find a nice hotel that's fairly inexpensive to reserve a block of 15 rooms for a wedding, yes, I'm the one getting married, oh, why thank you very much, is time-consuming, difficult and annoying.
3. Jeffrey called me on 2 different phones, 3 times, to have this conversation:
Him: Hey. You might get called in today.
Him: Did you hear the news about the pope?
Me: DID HE DIE???
Him: Well, he has the birdflu.
Him: He got it from the cardinal.
I got off the phone with a hotel lady for this.
