||Allow me to explain

|I spent the entire day resizing images. Very early this morning I discovered a coding error in the scripts I'm using. This error results in pictures sometimes being deleted rather than moved from Incoming to Outgoing. Thus I had to start all over again to ensure I don't lose anything I want to keep. By afternoon I was where I left off last night.
The big event of the day was a planned splurge: Chinese carry out. I picked up stuff for both lunch and dinner, though I ended up with enough rice to last another day. I ordered beef sticks, fried dumplings, pork fried rice and fried wontons.
Either I'm talking funny today or people gained an extra helping of confusion with their breakfast. Almost every time I said something, no matter how clearly, I went round and round with people explaining what I said. A simple phrase like "I'll be right back, I need a drink" was met with the same response elicited by phrases like "kumquats are mutant hairballs that grow in a mixture of Nader's toenail clippings and June berries I pulled from my navel".
Late in the evening we caught part of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the new version with Depp). After the movie I mentioned that Willy Wonka isn't a fictional label. Since this was hard to believe (despite how much of their candy we've eaten over the years), here's a link to their website.
In other news, a Bishop is claiming that most Christians are wrong about Heaven. Interesting idea, but it's presented as an ad for a new book. A salesman and a messenger are not the same thing.
