Dark sky.

Here at my upstairs study table, I'm watching a storm gather.

Well it looks like one of those little bottles of oil they give you for certain small mechanical things.

I've always liked storms right up until they spawn tornadoes then I don't like them so much. We have been supposed to have a few here this weekend but all we got was rain. It's been disappointing.

I only worry about tornadoes when the sky turns green.

And you're wrong about it being oil.

I'm wrong about a lot of things. I'll just add that to the list.

Perfume sample?

Tommy: It was a good guess.

Dan: You're right! In fact, it's So Magic, by Lancome.

I'm just impressed with the .Mac subscription card. I hated living in central Wisconsin plains where you could see the wrath of God coming for 30 miles. so glad to live in Georgia, where all we have to worry about is the occasional Hurricane. or three.

MacStansbury: We're not really in the plains here. It's quite hilly. I just have a patch of sky to check out. I can't see anything. coming.

Macstansbury - although Georgia is certainly no tornado ally, we get our share. Remember the night one tore the roof off the Governor's Mansion? A couple of years ago one did big damage in Dunwoody. Just being picky, regards!

Ann: Re: the vial.

Here I thought it was the cyanide capsule need when Der AlthouseBunker gets besieged by anti-blog forces...with their podcasted commentaries...

wait, um...not quite the analogy I was going for...too much C-SPAN memorial day WWII stuff this morning...mea culpa!

The vial is an old-time rain indicator. Remember, it would turn blue for rain and pink for fair weather.
Or was it the other way around?
At least now you can declare a winner.
