- Note to my workplace: the selection of e-audio books available through Maryland's Digital eLibrary Consortium is pitiful. Free, though - that is a plus.
- Note to Verizon Wireless: just because I'm back doesn't mean I forgive you. I got my eye on you bitches.
I missed my annual phone call from Mr. Librarian's best childhood friend, an ex-Marine who calls me on my birthday and sings From the Halls of Montezuma. (My birthday is also the birthday of the Corps.) But he left a message, so I can play it over and over if I want. Third verse:
If the Army and the NavyWhy do the streets of Heaven have to be guarded? From whom? And how come Marines don't get to relax even once they get to Heaven?
Ever look on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines
Nobody coughed up $3500 and bought me this, though - come on people how many hints do I have to drop?
But the best present of all came from Three. He woke up at about ten pm, dictated this note to the babysitter, and fell back asleep:
I just love to see you. Don't run into skeletons. I love [Big Man] only when he's cool. I love drinking apple juice.
I love Mommy.
