Mark your calendars:

* April 17 is Velociraptor Awareness Day (Facebook registration req'd -- but you're all on Facebook, aren't you?)

* May 3-9 is National Anxiety and Depression Awareness Week. So if you've raptor-proofed your home and office but are still depressed as shit or edge-of-ralphing anxious, check it out.

Remember, this vicious predator can be prevented. And so can velociraptors.
