Rumour has it there's going to be some sort of thing posted tomorrow. Like an article or some such. And it involves, like, a big pit. And something happening to it. And eyes of skull has a secret. It's all pretty vague. I should probably find a better source than some random old guy I found in a cave.

In the meantime, here's a link courtesy of IJD. A while back, Wired magazine thought about Ernest Hemingway's famous six-word story and decided to invite other writers to come up with their own. They got lots of submissions, some from very big names, and they make for very interesting reading. Here's the collection, and here's our thread discussing it. I'm just sorry they didn't get even more -- I'd love to see what Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, or Brannon Braga would come up with, to name just a few.

And a note from the Zekosphere: normally a day where you have a root canal performed is not a lot of fun, but it's a whole other story when this happens afterwards.

Thumbs up Mmmm... pie

Pie may not fix every last thing wrong in the world, but it sure doesn't hurt.

After a filling, you can have filling. Was it filling?

As long as it's raspberry pie. Now that's good.
