    Many

    Strange realities are very intriguing, and I like to follow them, research them, discover things. When I do it is cataloged in a part of my memory that is easily accessible. I like to relate things to one another, and strange facts are magnetic to each other.

    Something About Mice.

    Did you know mice like paprika? I noticed the twist lid on my paprika was open, so I closed it. The next day it was open again. Someone was stealing my paprika! It had to be the mouse that's been hanging around. I confirmed this by sprinkling some on a mouse trap. Sure enough...
