  1. I'm reminded of the classic song by that 60s group, The Coleopteras, BUGDAY:

    They say it's your bugday

    It's my bugday too, yeah

    They say it's your bugday

    We're gonna have a good time

    I'm glad it's your bugday

    Happy bugday to you!

  2. A poem I wrote some years back seems appropriate…

    Voice of the Bee.

    North by Hive-West of the sun,

    our memory sings of blossom.

    Citrus: lemon, orange, lime;

    wide waxy plates of nectar.

    And towers of small sweetness:

    lavender, buckeye, rosemary.

    We return, singing weary fulfillment

    and the Hive dances us into memory.

    Happy birthday!

  3. I'm confused…

    When I get Indian food (buffet), I get one or two pieces of naan with my first plate of food, and then usually go back for a second plate of just naan and the food I didn't get quite enough of the first time. Is the "extra" naan bread that second serving of naan bread, or the one I sometimes get after my second plate is done?

    Is there really such a thing as "extra" naan bread?

    P.S. I always eat mine with a combination of the tamarind and mint sauces. My wife thinks that's weird.
