My perturbation on this topic knows no limits. It is extreme. It is all-consuming. It fumes. There is, in short, nothing moderate about it. I twitch. I writhe.

Not in play: this is true. Football, baseball, rugby, yes. Basketball, not so much.

In play: Led the effort to decriminalize sudoku.

Because I hate the smell of Honey Locust (aka Thorny Locust) trees in the Autumn.

Nope. I thought I was going to like Tru Calling, but I couldn't even get ten minutes into the first one. Blech!

Ah.

That's not a smell that I much notice. I suppose that while I notice some smells that others don't, I also don't notice some smells that others do. Or maybe it's more that various tree smells seem 'normal' to me -- or maybe not, as magnolias strike me as overly strong to the point of unpleasantness; but then, they're not common around here.

I assume that Beckdawrek has interacted with some cats today.

Read the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius during school/college, but not necessarily as an assignment.

Right on both counts; nothing against doggoes (more of a cat person, me), but way back in the Stone Age of the Internetz, some sites/services didn't like spaces or underscores in usernames, so the mjm labs rubric under which I promulgated my recreational media projects lost its space.

Based on location, I assume that Beckdawrek has an impressive Walmart not far from home.
