In sepia toned Kansas, Dorothy gets dirty again gardening and back in Oz, Glinda rules with hands so clean they sparkle.

Thanks for the warm, slightly squishy welcome (like milk left out in the sun for too long).

In any case, a Twabble.

Don't think of the worms crawling under your skin.
No really. Don't.
If you think about them, they get hungry, and breed.

The paranoia / delusion in this one is great... It *is* paranoia, isn't it? :shock:

Tears of joy washed over my face. Our family business was saved from the brink. Sales of baby coffins had nearly tripled.

Music therapy

Too late, he realised. The strange music did not only banish troubles. He faded to nothingness. A whisper on the breeze.

After his announcement of a cure for Toxoplasma Gondii, Dr. Flegr was declared fair game by the Cat Protection Society.

Just thinking of our zombie friends...

Nice one. My wife and I have two cats at home, and I grew up with cats on a family farm. I'm not sure if I'd want to know if I had Toxoplasma Gondii. I try to avoid thinking about it.

I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather... not screaming hysterically like the passengers in his car.
