i have a subterranean charm...

i really shouldn't be allowed to watch la femme nikita. no. because i cry. and that's silly. isn't it? at the very least, i shouldn't be allowed to watch it more than once in a single year. and i shouldn't be allowed to quote it without very good reason.

in other news, a letter from a friend arrived in my inbox and had a profound effect. we should write letters more often. all of us. it somehow makes up for so much.

i really wish christmas didn't begin in october, because i'm already getting worn out. children dream of a prolonged christmas season. apparently, retailers do, too. and they have the clout and finances to make the rest of us live their unholy vision.

today a tree squirrel and a red-shouldered hawk had a stand-off on the neighbor's fence. i don't know who won. but i put my money on the squirrel. they're wiley.

i'm off. thai dinner and chit-chat with the newly returned pal.

"Subterranean charm": I wonder who wrote the sub-titles and why they chose this phrase which according to google only occurs when describing caves or cave like dwellings. Having this charm makes you like a cave? Dark? Moist?

hmm. i don't know who was responsible for the subtitles but i did find this one particularly endearing. i suppose here it was intended to mean "beneath the earth." latin: sub+terra. thus, he possesses charms which are not readily apparent.
