Clean. Clean and Orderly.

I walked out of the house to check the mail and found a dead bird on the porch. That didn’t seem like a good omen.

And this seems like a bad omen, too.

And then there’s the fine selection of bad omenry over at the PuddingTime! Linklog (not to mention links to creeptacular pictures of Katherine Harris threatening to sew shut the mouths and eyes of little children in Florida … I mean … glomming on to President Bush and his brother).

I’m scrambling for an upside. I guess I’ll just have to settle on “Skype came out as a Universal Binary today,” which seems problematic in light of bad omen number 2 for the day.

But there’s also Bad Omen 4: some of the boobies on the federal payroll.

And Bad Omen 5: Youth groups for people who show the sort of restrained approach to biblical justice that would only get sodomites executed if they were caught in the act. Sort of a “don’t tell, don’t die” policy, I guess.

Did I mention Skype!?

Actually, now that I think about it, the dead bird is probably the only real omen in the lot. The rest are just genuine “We’re here, we suck, get used to it!” bad things. No more omenly than getting hit by a truck or mugged.
