We share 25% of our DNA with a daffodil.

It takes 42 muscles in your face to frown. It only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and smack someone upside the head.

Aha! So that's it. Am thinking some of the folks I work with share closer to 50 to 75%. And probably with the same daffodil.

Stuff I found on Wikipedia yesterday, 11/11/11:
In the United Kingdom, Ireland and some Commonwealth realms, elevenses is a snack that is similar to afternoon tea but eaten in the morning. In Australia and New Zealand, elevenses are called morning tea or smoko. In the United States, elevenses refers to the antiquated custom of the late-morning whiskey break.

Never heard of a late morning whiskey break but I'm willing to try anything.

Apparently, it's right after the early morning whiskey break, Andy. The goal is to reach the late afternoon whiskey break while still standing. Both the early evening whiskey break and the late night whiskey break will be searved to those who are seated (or passed out) in the lounge chairs.
