thanks, Aoki....

Nothing better than being woken up at 7.45am by a six-pound kitten careening through the apartment and knocking something over. Sigh.

I love that cat. Really. I do. *shakes head*

my reading of A Singular Destiny on the radio

Tonight on the 26th Anniversary Special episode of Destinies: The Voice of Science Fiction, the radio show hosted by Dr. Howard Margolin, Howard will be replaying the reading I did from Star Trek: A Singular Destiny when I appeared on the show in January of this year.

Check it out tonight at 11.30pm on WUSB -- 90.1 on your FM dial if you're on Long Island, on the web if you're not -- or check out the archive at Captain Phil Online after the show's over.

    "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley

Schott's Miscellany 30 April 2009

George Washington was sworn in as the first President of the United States of America (1789)


A traditional rhyme for the discovery of clover leaves:

Find a two, put it in your shoe;
Find a three, let it be;
Find a four, put over the door;
Find a five, let it thrive.

Getting old ain't for sissies.
Bette Davis (1908-89)
