*Yawn* S t r e t c h. I get out of bed, pad over to my fish tank to give them their breakfast. Oddly, half are moving left, the other half to the right. Looking in the kitchen I notice yesterday's breakfast - a croissant - but can't tell if it's whole or half eaten. Shrugging it off, I step out of my basement apartment and onto the roof of my highrise building. Breathing in the fresh air, I listen to the water splashing in the rooftop garden and once again wonder how the thing runs without a pump. Birds are flying north/south for the winter. As I step back inside I squint at the sun trying to figure out if it's rising or setting...
