"Oh how the family affections combat
Within this heart, and each hour flings a bomb at
My burning soul! Neither from owl nor from bat
Can peace be gained until I clasp my wombat."
(From William Michael Rossetti's "Family Letters, with a Memoir" again sent to me by a...hmm. "Fan" sounds like I'm making assumptions, and "alert reader" sounds like I'm plagerizing Dave Barry. Anybody got a good, but pithier phrase for "chance-met-through-webcomics acquaintences who know I like wombats and thus send me charming wombat stuff randomly via e-mail?")
