Poll results and now bumper stickers.

So, yesterday's poll confirmed that the things that freak me out the most are not the things that freak most people out the most. Feet and ears, people. Feet and ears. Do not do violence to either one of them. Apparently I am nearly alone in this. And I will probably be even more alone if I say that it's not ears that are the worst, it's the little fine hairs just above my ears. The little wispy ones. Mess with those at your peril. (This is not so much an issue when I'm not wearing my hair pulled back, and these days I'm not wearing my hair pulled back all that often.)

I also bowed to public opinion (for once -- I don't promise to ever do it again) and worked on both sex and violence in Sampo yesterday. I keep repeating to myself that I am tougher than this book. It is a nearer thing than it usually is.

I'm wearing shorts and a T-shirt today, short skirt and cami top yesterday, but you know what's on my to-do list for the week? "Put electric mattress pad on bed." Because fall is coming, and you don't want to wake up in the middle of the night surprised by it. You just want to punch the little button and go back to warm, blissful sleep.

I have been unduly influenced by the, "Jesus is coming. Look busy," bumper stickers, I guess, because now, "_____ is coming," is invariably followed by, "look busy," in my head. I am still capable of hearing, "_____ loves you," without filling in, "but the rest of us think you're a jerk." But that's still my favorite Jesus-related bumper sticker.

I did not start this entry intending to talk about Jesus-related bumper stickers. Such is life; at least, such is my life.
