I am a participant in Meniere's Syndrome and occasional ophthalmic migraines, and while I'm not an epileptic, I am visually freaked out by flashy things on TV and movie screens and by fast-changing frames. So it is with great sadness (given my long-enduring fascination with Edward and Jacob) that I read this latest bit of news.

A friendly spousal dispute is underway. In the comments section (and without Web searching), kindly describe any and all definitions for the word "dork." After submitting your answer, you may Google away, but we're first interested in the contents of your brain.

On the phone last night, my mom reminded me that it's Daylight Saving Time, not "Savings." I have made the correction. I was also reminded of what I thought was an annoying symptom of Blogger but was actually due to a switch I had incorrectly thrown in the settings area. One can now leave comments on this blog without being a registered user. Sorry about that. Would someone be a dear and test this out--see if it will let you post a comment without logging in. (Word verification should still be in play; this prevents auto-spam-comments.)

My latest idea: change the name of "Daylight Saving Time," as I'm pretty sure no daylight is saved. My proposal is to call it "Stupid Time-Change Time." Jane was asking today why we have the time change, and I answered that we're all just stupid and there's no reason for it.

Some time ago I'd discovered that the Archbishop of Canterbury is appointed by the Prime Minister, which I found creepy in a church-state sort of way. But today I learned that one of the archbishop's roles is as "Primate of All England." Now that is just kneeslappingly hilarious. Those English, honestly.

In the car today I was reminded of an old 78 record I had as a kid and started humming and singing tunes from "Manners Can Be Fun." The internet comes through again. Here's the recording, (click 'download' when you get there) in its full anachronistic goofiness, sung and narrated by Frank Luther.
