Time Traveling Florists

Amazing! That which has eluded scientists for hundreds of years has been mastered by 1-800-flowers.com!

For, you see, today, January 2, 2006, 1-800-flowers.com - apparently a clandestine powerhouse of quantum mechanics - sent me the following message:

I must know their secrets!!

On a related note, I got yet another time travel movie from Netflix: "Primer." Small independent film. As in, so independent, their special effects/props budget consisted of some wires, digital timers, and a sheet of aluminum siding from Lowes plus rental fees for a couple of oxygen tanks from a medical supply place and a storage unit from U-Haul. I don't like dissing independent film in general, but, good god, I lost the thread -and interest - about halfway through.

I'm done with the time travel stuff. I have three volumes of "Reilly, Ace of Spies" (with a very young Sam Neill) to get through. Sounds good to me.

I'm sure they were talking about Valentine's Day. Yeah, that's what they meant. Definitely. Valentine's Day.
