Sailor None

8/19/2019
More
The best thing about Pluto’s demotion from planet to dwarf planet was Sailor Pluto being stripped of her status, too. Literally stripped.

Never … Continue reading "Sailor None"

Failure

8/15/2019

Failure is not an option. Failure is not an option. Failure is our goal. Failure, Idaho may not sound like a great place to live, and you’d be right. It’s a horrible place to live.

Small Stuff

Richard Lizzie Serendipidy Tom Norval Joe Planet Z RICHARD Relatively speaking The Theory of Relativity, so I’m told, states that the nearer the speed of light that you travel, the slower you age.

Compound

8/10/2019
More
Have you heard about the power of compound interest?

Lou was our agent in the field. He spread out a blanket in the field, sat down, and took a nap. Unless it was raining.

Nothing at all.” “Good work,” … Continue reading "Man in the Field"

I can’t remember the maid’s name. Maybe it was Venezuela, or Rosita, or Maria. She cleaned every Tuesday.

All the way to Monday night, … Continue reading "Made a mess"
