"If there was any question whether we live in a society of tasteless and inappropriate thinkers, the headline on the 'Official Countdown Site to Hermione's 18th Birthday' pretty much seals it.

'The bewitching hour will soon be upon us!'

And then we're all going to hell."

Thank you, Peter Hartlaub.

Cinnamon toast is pretty groovy.

Mmmm, tasty

I can see their point, though. They're only saying it's a fresh vegetable so that it is subject to inspection and regulation, so rat tails don't turn up (as often).

But yeah, on the face of it, it's mighty silly.

Why do bikers, when given a nice not-insubstantial bike lane, ride that white dividing line like they're taking a sobriety test? I mean, honestly.

The bike lane is there for a reason. Part of that reason is so that bikers do not need to travel in the normal car lane, so that cars do not have to endanger anyone by either pacing the biker or accelerating around them and thus into oncoming traffic.

I'm sorry, but while it is good to be healthy and active and sparing the air, it is not good to swerve in front of me or take up my part of the road when I am in it. If you feel like taking the risk and want me to accidentally hit you because you swerved out into my lane for no apparent reason, then fine. Just make sure your family knows that so I don't get sued.

What'd he say?

Seriously, though, I did say OMG when I read the headline. I rarely do this in response to obituaries, mostly because they are generally not the people I thought would never die.

That sounds weird.

Never mind.

After reading a friend's journal entry on a similar subject, I shall head this off at the pass.

*If you've googled me, your name begins with a D and ends with a Y, and we dated at some point, don't bother to say hi. Chances are I don't feel the need to talk to you.*

Thus endeth the PSA. :D

Yes, but has the High Priest won the quoits contest?
