Sniglet Of The DayZibula (ZI bew luh) – n. The plastic spine which model car parts come attached to.

While I’m not one to build models, Cleave is, so he has encountered the zibula many times over the years. It must be pretty interesting to see the molds they use when putting all those parts on the zibula, but that is not for our eyes to see. We just hope that all the parts are there, and we might enjoy our model-building time by inhaling the vapors of glue and paints, then wondering why the models never look like they do on the box when we get done. Might have something to do with the fumes from the glue and the paints. Zibulas come in many colours, but I’m guessing the most common is black for all those interiors, maybe grey for those spaceship models we never see any more, but some devoted middle-aged Star Wars/Star Trek geeks might have stashed in their homes somewhere to work on when they retire. Where do discarded zibulas end up? Most likely in the workshop/bedroom trash bin, or it becomes a toy for a lucky cat. Zibulas are here to stay so long as we are going to build models, and as long as there plastic molds to be filled with parts for your mini version of a 1965 Ford Mustang.

Sniglet Of The DayParkrastinate n. The inability to decide which parking space to choose in a near empty parking lot.

So it’s around 6 AM in the morning wherever you are. The quick service restaurants and doughnut shops are open, as are some supermarkets, and the scents of freshly-made, warm baked good fills the air, as does the aroma of petroleum products as early risers gas up their cars en route to work or class. Oddly, even though the stores and restaurants are in full business, and the coffee is beckoning you to come in and get a cup, for some reason, there are all these empty parking spaces before you, and you just do not know which one to take. You cannot parkrastinate for too long, because those danishes are getting more stale by the minute. Those bacon, egg, and cheese biscuits and crunchy hash brown potatoes are waiting, and it is their destiny for you to consume them. Once this delightful task is taken care of, you might encounter more parkrastination along the way as you head into other stores or places just opening up. Being a morning person has its advantages, and hopefully you will get over your parkrastination soon, because those empty spaces won’t stay that way for much longer.
