Hiding from rain

It's raining, my coffee is almost done and I keep thinking about the following:

Narcolepsy does not particularly interfere with doing laundry, as evidenced by the girl who fell asleep in the launderette yesterday.

Twenty or so deaf young people, when drunk and energetic in the garden at three in the morning, can make a lot of noise and apparently not notice.

"No matter how compelling America's ideals, they still come wrapped in American power. People abroad may love the former but they are inevitably suspicious of the latter. And if America falters in its application of its ideals, people around the world will believe that they are simply a smoke screen for its power. Call it the fate of Empire."

- Fareed Zakaria (in Empire - Nozone IX)
