causes for celebration
Arnold and Cynthia are getting married today! These are two of the nicest people on the planet, and sooo perfectly matched it's almost enough to make me question my adamant non-belief in the whole 'soulmate' concept.

It's also Camille's birthday, and since almost the whole gang is going to the wedding later, we'll be celebrating her birth anniversary in style, tricked out in barongs and fancy dress. Should be fun!

useless knowledge: finger factoids
A recent study by California researchers posits that lesbian women (Isn't this a redundant phrase? Are there non-women lesbians?) have significantly longer ring fingers than index fingers. According to these Berkley-based scientists, a majority of men have the same hand configuration, possibly indicative of increased levels of, well, maleness.

In a curiously similar superstition, old wives' tales inform us that werewolves in human form have index fingers equal in length or longer than their middle fingers. They can also be spotted via hair on their palms and eyebrows that meet (a phenomenon referred to in current lingo as a 'unibrow').

All these supposed identifying marks sound about equally preposterous to me (unless Colin Farrell is, in fact, a lycanthrope). But you're checking out your hands now, aren't you?

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
