Stuff that could go on Twitter

Minus the character count limitations, these random musings would be perfect for my Twitter feed. But I'll ponder them here.

In no particular order:

1. This is the time of year when I eat a lot of clementines. (But only me, I'm sure.) I find it strangely satisfying to peel the fruit and then try to peel all of the additional white membrane that clings on the underside of the peel. It looks a bit like cull fat when it is peeled off the clementine segment in a largish piece.

2. Who got the color scheme first? The University of Southern California (at Los Angeles) or the United States Marine Corps? (And if the colors are not the same, I apologize for my color-blind eyes. I saw a USMC bumper sticker and it reminded me in color and composition--plus the M--to the USC logo.)

3. AISOT this morning . . . if I was single and somewhat aimless, I think I'd live in New York City just on the off chance that I could witness an Improv Anywhere mission. They sound and appear fun to experience--unless your these guys.

4. I've eaten more corn dogs this year than every other of my past years combined.

5. Grace's ongoing hearing problem has me concerned. But I'm really trying to be sensative to her and think about the problems she's experiencing. I do wonder if this is a source of several of the issues she and I have clashed over in past years. But the thing is, I don't know how far back the deficiency goes. In general, concerning and (as yet) not completely explained. Tracking . . .

6. Sure, everyone likes their pizza and their fried chicken hot on first serving. But . . . as leftovers, I have a fondness for cold. What about you the second time around?

Since you asked: 1. Huckleberry Hound: "Oh my darlin', oh my darlin', oh my darlin' Clementine, you are lost and gone forever, and your shoes are number nine." 2. Oberlin had it first. 3. me too. 4. never had one. 5. Hmm. 6. cold (or lukewarm) pizza for breakfast - yes!

Cold pizza with hot coffee, definitely. But with cold beer, hot pizza.
