Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

The long march

Oh, that hurt. First, property taxes, then I decided to walk on over to the bank and pay the mortgage. Did I mention that it hurt?

Today seems to be the day for it--I brushed my teeth this morning, using my new tube of AquaFresh Extreme Clean. I bought it because the tube is shiny silver, and, well, you know, I like shiny things. Anyway, the goop inside promises nice shiny teeth, too, and it has "Micro-Active Foam" that has some sort of "dynamic foaming action"--I think they copied from Dow Chemical's Scrubbing Bubbles.

I can tell you this thing for sure--although its effects on my teeth may be debatable, sucking a tiny bit into the upper portion of your respiratory system is nigh unto drinking a Drano shooter. The dynamic foaming action hurts, and the fresh minty flavor burns, not being the least bit cool and tingling. Although it does last.

I hacked and coughed and spit and heaved, then did the same when I got in the shower, until I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital.

I'm all better now, though. Sorta.
