Jeeves Strangle


Brigid shuffled out into the living room, hair frightful, eyes twitching. As always, Greg was in the kitchen, and of course he was singing.

"No one to talk with, all by myself," he sang. "No one to walk with, but I'm happy on the shelf! Ain't misbehavin', savin' myself for you..."

She shuffled her way to one of the stools at the bar and deposited herself on it. Before she'd said a word, Greg had slid a large cup of coffee in front of her, singing, "Like Jack Horner, in the corner, don't go nowhere, what do I care? Your kisses are worth waiting for ... belieeeeeeve me!"

"Geeze man," she croaked. "What is it with you?"

He turned back from his frying pan to look at her. "What do you mean?"

"Every frickin' morning you're in here, chirpy as a meadowlark, no matter what horrors were inflicted the night before. And look at this, you've served me frickin' coffee, while mangling Louis Armstrong amiably. It ain't natural!"

"Would you rather I mangled Irving Berlin? The weather is frightening, the thunder and lightning, all seem to be having their way! But as long as I can be with you, it's a lovely day..."

"No! Sweet merciful heaven, no!" She buried her face in her hands.

Greg tsked. "No pleasing some people," he said, and turned back to his eggs.

Mad Red


Well, for all the hype that flew about this store, I was mildly disappointed. I mean, yeah, it was nice, but it wasn't that exciting. And they didn't have my Madagascar Vanilla Red tea, for all their vaunted selection.

Granted, I don't know if anybody has Madagascar Vanilla Red these days, the way brands come and go any more. My current box was bought last year sometime -- practically eternity in the mayfly minds of modern marketing.

It also gave me an idea for another Fictionlet, but I don't want to post too many at once. ;)

EDIT: Hey, cool, the Celestial Seasonings page has a store locator. Turns out that I'll have to go to Safeway for a new box.
