Sometimes, the universe arranges itself pretty tidily.

I had two boxes of books to ship to Mysterious Galaxy today, and I was going to haul them down to the UPS store...

...except for the part where the UPS guy showed up today with a delivery, and took them away! Huzzah!

Also, the mail came early, and it had unexpected money in it. (A check I had forgotten I was oweed.) And the bigger SD card for the camera, so I can take more than eight pictures at the tattoo shop today.

Today is a good day.

Even if my brain is still insisting on listening to this Shriekback song on endless repeat in some kind of effort at self-hypnosis. Maybe sooner or later it will give me a narrative in return.

"coincidence? no. it's *creepy.*"

So, I'm working my way through the various talks on this page (the Ramachandran one is excellent.) and I hit this gem:

"Serendipity is when you find things you weren't looking for because finding what you were looking for is so damned difficult."

-- Erin McKean, Lexicographer

Oh yah. That's going in a book.

Also, the Rives four in the morning rap is making me wish I still wrote poetry, and still poetry slammed....
