And those who don't sleep easily! I must not be the only one who could have nightmares of headless malevolent vegetables. Oogh, I'd take jellyfish over headless birdbrains any day.

So I take it you didn't see SLEEPY HOLLOW? A shame -- it's worth a few nightmares just to watch :heart: Johnny Depp :heart: at his 17th-century Hottie-est!

Besides, some veggies do have a head -- lettuce and cabbage, f'rinstance. Which already gives them an edge over the average US Senator, Congressperson, or Ad Hoc [fill in the blank] Committee Member.

(Of course, this would be the perfect opportunity to segué into a "Monica/head" joke, but since the other Melissa already got bleeped by Tony for a similar remark, I will leave that to your collective warped imaginations.... 8) )

Still wearing my halo,

Ink-identally, for those of you who missed Tuesday's Episode #1 of THE FUTURE IS WILD, here's the miniseries' website so you can catch up with it:

http://animal.discovery.com/convergence/futureiswild/futureiswild.html

Participating in the discussion forum requires registration with the Discovery/Animal Planet site, but the rest of the site is open to all netizens.

Episode #1, while it lacked Squiddage, was duly impressive -- I especially loved the Deathgleaners, which resembled winged versions of Tolkien's nazgul or Rowling's dementors. And the Gannetwhales were extremely huggable -- at least until they started projectile-vomiting stomach acid onto their attacker. :yuck: (Well, it was a perfect defense!) Plus, the mating ritual of the Spinks managed to be simultaneously romantic and cute-as-a-button.

But if you long for Squiddage, fear not -- I know from viewing the abridged version of the show that there will be at least four different Future Cephs to brighten your next three Tuesday evenings: Swampuses, Rainbow Squid, Mega-Squid, and Squibbons. And if you'd still like to catch Episode #1, Animal Planet will be running it once more this Sunday, 13 July, at 6 p.m. Eastern US Time.

Meantime, remember to calendar Tuesdays, 15, 22, and 29 July, at 9 p.m. Eastern US Time, when Episodes #2, #3, and #4 of THE FUTURE IS WILD will premiere on Animal Planet.

Gotta go now -- I think the Carakillas are after me.
