Whale fluke

Well, that's nicely random...

Another haiku generator, as pointed out by taer_silveroak. It took a while for me to get one I liked, and that one was

...though the generator treats "100x100" as a single syllable so it's not perfect... But the "for me to aaarrrgh/on a desert plain" is good enough for me to forgive that...

Edited To Add: Oh, and I tried it one more time and I got this one:

Debit card relief

Good news in today's snail mail: my bank now agrees with me that a bunch of debits made to businesses in FREAKIN' JAPAN were not made by me!

The bank reported that the temporary debits replacing the money taken in those debits are now permanent debits, because the purchases weren't mine in the first place.

I'm indeed relieved. It's been an extra annoyance, dealing with the aftermath of this. I feel I've been reasonably careful with my cards and my account information -- I tear up bank statements and put the pieces with especially sensitive info in my bacon-grease can -- but I've been especially vigilant these past six weeks. I hope I can figure out the best habits for being careful. (Have advice? I'm open to it.)
