A sure sign of addiction

I've been watching Fringe on Netflix. I mostly blame Tamara for this, because for ages she's been talking about Other Olivia's amazing bangs, and how beautiful Peter is, whom I still refer to as Pacey. He will always be Pacey.

Yesterday I got to an episode in the other universe where all the sheep had died out, and my first thought was, "That's so sad. What do they knit with?"

One of the many things that stuck with me through all the incarnations of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide series is Arthur's constant search for tea. A lot of people would argue, and possibly rightly so, that it was just Douglas poking fun at a very British trait. But I think that if after traveling literally to the end of the universe and back, he still only ever found a decent cup of tea on our little blue marble, then that alone is a pretty good reason to keep us from getting destroyed. Maybe it's not just British. Maybe a good cup of tea is the one thing us humans really got right.
