In the news today

It seems the earth is now spinning on schedule. This is confusing scientists the world over, who normally insert one "leap second" per year to account for the typically slowing rotation of the planet.

Obviously, the planet is now taking advantage of GPS to more precisely coordinate it's spin. I mean, duh?

We went out for lunch with some friends today - beforehand, we all went walking by the waterfront. David had a lot of fun doing so, though he wished he was less bundled-up than we'd arranged. He also met a very nice kittycat downtown who made friends with him and followed him for awhile. He petted her, and at one point tried to smooch her. We discouraged the smooching.
