Water Whips

And, flinging the water forward from her cup, she couldn't help noticing howits path resembled a whip flying through the air, its slap on the pavementthe painful lick. A moment's trip outside to get rid of unwanted water becameseveral trips to feed the mind.

Speaking of whips, people who do this really irritate me.I in fact have a family member who has done this, and it sucks.

It's just disgusting.

I've made some changes to my bookmarks, as noted a few entries ago, and amslowly going through classifying the unfiled ones. It's working pretty well.Unfortunately, it leaves me with less time to BLOG. Debb and I have both beenspending a lot of time on Wikipedia though.. it's fun tocontribute.

Finally, tomorrow there's a geek race I'll be in.Yay.
