"Where to hide?" was Ovinia's only thought as she raced madly across the field outside Aberdeen and up a grassy incline, frantically seeking escape from the man who was hell-bent on possessing her, on making her his and his alone, having succumbed to her beauty, drawn into near madness by the watery depths of her brown eyes and lured by the exotic perfume of lanolin and newly-mown hay which wafted from her thick coat as she grazed.

As Amy reached for the envelope her heart fluttered in anticipation like the wings of a fruit bat that has eaten a fermented peach, and even though she knew the statistic that you are more likely to be hit by a meteorite than to win the lottery, she was still quite surprised when opening the envelope to be hit by a meteorite.

Departure From Thanksgiving Tradition

President George W. Bush broke with White House tradition today, killing the ceremonial White House turkey and pardoning House Majority Leader Tom DeLay instead.
The reporters and busloads of school children who had gathered on the White House lawn to see the president pardon this year's turkey, named Biscuits, were surprised to hear Mr. Bush adopt a hard-line stance toward the bird.
"I have political capital, and I intend to spend it -- first by killing, and then by eating, this delectable turkey," Mr. Bush announced to the stunned onlookers, who watched as Biscuits was dragged away by two burly secret service agents.
Mr. Bush then said that he would use his traditional Thanksgiving pardon to free Mr. DeLay from any charges of campaign finance wrongdoing, and then paraded the Texas congressman across the lawn to complete the festive holiday ceremony.
Jenny Colver, 11, of Silver Spring, Maryland, expressed a view shared by many who witnessed the history-making event: "He pardoned the wrong turkey."
As news of the Thanksgiving-themed reprieve spread, some in Washington argued that the president's pardoning of the House Majority Leader was unnecessary, since House Republicans already passed a law last week declaring Mr. DeLay an endangered species.
But White House spokesman Scott McClellan defended the president's action as in keeping with the holiday spirit: "This holiday is all about giving thanks, and right now Tom DeLay is extremely thankful that Republicans are calling the shots."
Elsewhere, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge announced his resignation today but said he had "no specific information" about when or where his resignation would take place.

"I've never done this before," she said softly, and she was trembling, shaking really--shaking like a Harley-Davidson idling at a stoplight, one of the ones with the old Evo-style engine, where people's dentures vibrated out as they rode--and yet when I touched her skin, it was smooth and inviting like one of the new Harleys, the ones that copy the Japanese engineering and use rubber mounts and counter-balancers . . . not that I would know, because I ride a British bike anyway and haven't been able to get it cranked in nearly six years, which is why I was shaking hands with her, because she owned a bike shop and had never touched a Vincent Black Lighting.

It was a stark and dormy night--the kind of Friday night in the dorm where wistful women/girls without dates ovulated pointlessly and dreamed of steamy sex with bad boy/men in the backseat of a Corvette--like the one on Route 66, only a different color, though the color was hard to determine because the TV show was in black and white--if only Corvettes had back seats.
