Work and serendipity

Another weekend nearly gone and another Monday on its way. But those are just labels we have put on time. Ways to mark the rising and setting of the sun, the waxing and waning of the moon.

So, it’s another period of night and, hours from now, it will be light again, and I will be expected to appear at my office for a day of work. My particular office was to have been painted this weekend—finished—and so I will be moving my stuff back in during most of the morning. Window will be open and fan running to air out paint fumes. Doing work so I can do more work...

Speaking of work, it sounds like a toney NYC restaurant has a little clean up to do. The Serendipity 3 was shut down by the Health Department after a live mouse, many areas of mouse droppings, dozens of live roaches, and flies were found during a routine inspection. This restaurant was recently in the news for featuring a Guinness World Record setting $25,000 dessert, which included, among other ingredients, edible 23-karat gold.


Work spares us from three evils: boredom, vice, and need.

Cockroaches and socialites are the only things that can stay up all night and eat anything.

I never kill insects. If I see ants or spiders in the room, I pick them up and take them outside. Karma is everything.
