I'm so confused.

Swastika found in bathroom of D.C.’s School Without Walls High School
" Administrators at School Without Walls High School in D.C. are investigating an incident involving “inappropriate language” and a swastika drawn on the wall of a boy’s restroom earlier this week. "

We assume they mean the drone.

Crashing Drones Into Test Dummies for Safety
" When small consumer drones made of plastic strike an object like a human head, they tend to break apart . . . . "

Either way, it's annoying.

All my t shirts suddenly have holes in them. Even brand new, only worn once ones. Tiny holes all in a nickel-sized cluster located a few inches below my belly button. Either I have a very specific moth living in my t shirt drawer or I have a pair of jeans with something sharp poking out of its waistband.
My next sleep break is scheduled for March 25.

I watch a lot of comedies this time of year. 
I thought about running and pulled a muscle.

I don't know which is more disturbing

Just How Much Pee Is In That Pool?

Or:
" . . . up until now, just how much urine has been difficult to measure, says chemist Xing-Fang Li of the University of Alberta. Li and her colleagues report they can now tell roughly how much pee is in a pool by measuring the artificial sweeteners carried in most people's urine. "
I wake up to an alarm clock that simulates sunrise and the soft chirping of birds. Only now can I wake up to actual sunrise and birds.

That will all change in a couple of weeks and I'll be in the dark again.

In Case You Were Wondering

Oscar swag bags include, among other things:
  • Crayola My Way customized box of crayons
  • Dandi Patch underarm sweat patches
  • Elvie limited edition pelvic floor exercise tracker (and app) [limited edition!!]
  • Rest-Rite Sleep Positioner
  • SweetCheeks cellulite massage mats
... the fair market value of which is fully taxable to the celebrity receiving such swag, reported on Form 1099-MISC. (What is the fair market value of a cellulite massage mat anyway? Which begs the question . . . oh, never mind.)

Luckily, celebrities can afford to get help with their taxes. Although, I wonder how many of them use PriceWaterhouseCooper. . . . Accountants, like long snappers, don't really want to be in the news.

It's a Matter of Law

Snuggies Are Blankets, Not Garments, For Tax Purposes

" The United States Court of International Trade recently decided this close question, ruling that Snuggies are blankets for import tax purposes. "
