This is only the second time that I've managed to catch the fox spirits in the Firefox Gmail template I'm using:

(If you use Firefox Gmail, you can set it to use custom templates with pictures in them - the one I'm using has a little fox who lives at a temple. Over the course of the day, it changes to reflect the time of day, and the little fox does different things like eat, feed the birds, take care of the peach trees, etc. The fox spirits show up in the wee hours of the morning, so I only catch them if the scene is a bit late in changing. XD)

ETA: You can also download templates for Firefox, although they don't change. :D See comments.

Aaaand for a happy story from the other side of the world from me, a Bangkok fire man dressed as Spiderman saves an autistic boy. Essentially, on the boy's first day at school, he panicked and climbed onto a third-floor window ledge, but it was hard to get to him. The fireman keeps the Spiderman costume in his locker to enliven fire drills at schools, so when he heard the boy loved superheroes, he went back to the station for it and it worked - the kid willingly went to him.
