    Actually, I did!
    Years ago, coworkers and I used to play "dictionary Jeopardy" at lunch. One person would open the dictionary to a random word and read the definition while the others tried to guess it. One guy hit upon "run", and the definition seemed to go on forever.

    By the way, Dictionary Jeopardy is harder than you'd think.

    If you plant the seeds, are they still wildflowers? Hmm...

    Last night, I started going through the library catalog, putting movies beginning in W, X, Y, or Z on my list.

    The Broadway version is pretty fun, I liked it. Haven't seen the film that inspired it, though.

    The library had neither Zardoz (which I've already seen in any event) not Xanadu.

    It might be fun to make a list of best and worst films for each letter of the alphabet.

    I had a skin cancer excised from my back a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday I got the stitches out, so no more bandaging and itching! And the pathology report says they got it all.

    It's become almost routine for me. I've had quite a lot of those.

    Good for you. I urge regular checkups/self-exams.

    Do they make you come in for lymfe gland checks for these?

    No, caught early and contained. If the pathology showed it had spread then there'd have been more work to do.

    We got a "new" sofa.

    In near-mint condition, nicely upholstered (subdued blue and pale gold paisley pattern).

    Husband was driving past an estate sale. Got it for $30.

    Good. Glad to hear it. I'm almost in my 5th (and last) year of checkups... looking good so far.
