Lovely Spam! Wonderful Spam!

Looking in my junkmail collection today, I have a message from "Lint Lizard Suction". According to the subject line it will speed drying time and clean the dryer. I now have a lovely image in my head of lizards running up the walls of my dryer after every load with their little suction cup feet, happily sucking in and nibbling all the lint left behind. So cute!

Sweet Scent

"According to a study by the Wheeling Jesuit University, Jasmine has a positive effect on the quality of sleep one gets, decreasing anxiety and improving the attitude one has after waking up. The smell of Jasmine doesn't make you sleep more, instead it makes your sleep time count for more. I guess you could consider it 'high quality' sleep with less moving and disturbance. In addition, studying while smelling Jasmine increased alertness and performance on cognitive tests."
I read this to Rafiki last night and he immediately said, "Bedtime!" :)

Little Tiny Keys

John Silver at work recited a poem from her childhood one day,
"Hearts, like doors, open with ease 
To very, very little keys, 
Now don't forget that two of these 
Are thank you sir, 
and If you please."
I think it's sweet and oh so perfect.
