I'm either seeing an uptick in how many people think "artful" means "artistic" or I'm seeing a surge in the use of the rarer second definition of 'skilled, expert'. Strangely, it is proving very hard to tell which I'm looking at. The uncertainty inherent in that has generated a mixed bag of emotions. I don't know whether to smile and nod or roll my eyes.

I was just sending out my birthday party invites, I'm sure I missed a few of you because I've lost touch or forgotten, but it amazed me how many people that I love that are scattered to the winds... so many close friends I could not invite because they're in foreign lands, or Seattle, Portland, LA, and New York. The majority, really.

If someone built a haunted house where the background noise was the screeching of brakes, I'd be a nervous wreck by the end. It is the only common noise that makes me freeze in place. I think it is the scariest noise to me, with a sense of looming danger. Every time I hear it, I silently pray for no crunch. Statistically it makes a great deal more sense to fear it than the sound of great cats or chainsaws or the other Halloween noises.
