I wish I could call in "creatively inspired" and get an excused absence from work. First-world problems: this job is parsecs (that's a lot, for a human) better than SDA or Charity Clothing Pickup, my primary two jobs this millennium, but when I sit down in my work chair, particularly on this, day eight of twelve with no days off and long OT days, I feel like a podling strapping into the vliya-sucking device...

Don't let this entry get you down, gentle reader, just use it to amplify your appreciation of your own job.

"--low thousands of hypotheses as to why that is. Every NTT develops its own. Our agency's objective is to find out why this is so."

...the origins of the phrase, "trying for a bishop." 1. It has nothing to do with conception, although kudos to Mr. Gaiman's innocence for not realizing it; 2. I kind of hate medieval bawdy people, right now.
