You just might be the LOOOOOOOOOnatic I'm looking for. Seriously, every time I hear that song, I marvel at that vowel. LOOOOOOOOOOOOOnatic.

I do love your link salads. I tweeted the one about mosquitoes (while thinking about how it needs electricity, but then emending that thought to, "but hand fans, if you carry around a hand fan, you might accomplish similar... though it wouldn't be the same...") and I read the awesome creeper story to my older daughter, who liked it.

Next break I take, I'll check out honeycombs that build themselves.
