The amaryllis bulb on my desk is finally starting to bloom. It's quite a miracle, actually. It wasn't killed off by my stupidity or the very cold weather in my cube.

A couple of weeks ago my co-worker, Terry, stopped by and asked me, "Why did you plant that amaryllis bulb upside down?" I was wondering why it wasn't doing anything.

Hahaha! That's rich!

Poor little amarillith (said lispingly, as in The Music Man).

It looks like an alien thing. Watch out. I saw a science fiction movie in which the plants ate the people and it started just like this. And I think it might be a true story.

Haven't you finished "Rise of the Third Reich" yet?

I'm glad it's at work. I wouldn't want it around when I'm sleeping in case it has non-vegetarian tendencies.

Done with Third Reich book? It's huge! Besides, I keep getting distracted with other books. I really should limit myself to reading a couple things at a time but I'm like a male adolescent at an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Aw, shucks. Just keep it well fed with blood and you'll be fine!
