So... Can I Have a Raise, Then?

Well, I'm just not waiting any longer.

For a while, I thought I'd play it cool. I'd give McSweeney's the chance to reject my latest list submission (entitled, for the record, Winnie the Pooh Catchphrases Considered by A.A. Milne Before He Settled on 'Oh Bother!' ) before burdening you nice folks with lesser listage.

But they're taking too long. And here, on the very cusp of the weekend, I've got nothing else cued up. So, lists it is. Or 'are'. Whatever. Just have a look, and -- if you haven't already -- see these and more on Charlie's Big List of Lists. Happy weekend, people.

Pinching? Biting? Yowza!

You bite, too, eh? I have been known to bite, somewhat, in the heat of the moment. I also tend to scratch, so I have to watch it. It just gets too damn good sometimes, ya know?
