I was composing a post about Mountain Cedar, which is currently in extreme pollination mode, when I discovered I was boring myself silly.

I did chance to wonder why pollen is spelled with an –en and pollination with an –in, but I wasn’t curious enough to look it up. Perhaps for another post.

The only other likely topic was the dream I had last night about seeing Coriolanus on Broadway and during the performance being served chicken casserole in a 9″ x 13″ x 2″ sheet cake pan (everyone got one, not just me). Coriolanus wasn’t what I remember from grad school–it was more of a fusion of Romeo and Juliet, Julius Caesar, and Othello–and the casserole appeared to contain eggplant.

The dream was more interesting, to me at least, than cedar, but once I got past the eggplant there was nothing more to say.

So, instead of belaboring this, I shall link to the following page, where you will see what I do when I should be scrubbing the sink.
