|09:43 pm - Cats do not like hot and sour soup.|
Of course, you can't convince them of that. Or at least, you can't convince Moofasa.
I decided to veg tonight, and I ordered Chinese food from Jade Garden. xoshua and I both ordered combo meals, and I ordered soup as usual. They have a $10 minimum delivery, and our total came to $10.01. Imperial Garden (which (for reasons I can't begin to fathom) is the favorite at work) charges me that much to order a lunch special. The fact that the food was actually quite good is a nice bonus.
My fortune cookie reads: "You possess what others cannot have." Logically, I assume that this refers to my hardcover copy of The Whole Mirth Catalog. It wasn't that difficult to track down, kids. You just have to find somebody who doesn't know how much it sells for these days.
I'm not sure where I was going with that either, but my lucky numbers tonight are "8, 14, 21, 33, 52, 68." Moofasa whined and whined while I was eating, so I put my soup bowl on the floor for him when I was finished. He sniffed, and then he stared at it for awhile, and his eyes kept half closing (his usual reaction to the aroma of foods which are spicy or strong). This behavior is normal for Moofasa. Whenever there's pizza in the house, he thinks he wants it until you actually try to give him some. He also refuses to eat anything in pieces bigger than his dry cat food. Once I was chopping up ham for soup, and he wouldn't leave me alone, so I gave him a hunk the size of the tip of my little finger. He wouldn't touch it, so the next morning I threw it away.
Um, anyway, I had a couple of links that I wanted to share. First of all, remember that guy who was leaving nasty comments in my journal a few months back? Well his journal is "friends only" now, and can only be described as precious.
Second, evil_jim, I hope you'll enjoy this. There are a couple of sites I visit on a regular basis which feature MP3s of entire LP albums. Usually the music is posted as a curiosity, but sometimes it's something actually listenable. Dana Countryman is currently featuring at his site a compilation he's put together called Moog Madness, which comprises some of his favorite Moog arrangements by People Who Are Not Wendy Carlos. You can download it here through the month of August. It's not quite The Moog Cookbook, but some of it is really cool and really weird.
Current Mood: full
Current Music: Hugo Montenegro -- Moog Power
Thanks for the link. I'll download it later once I've freshened up. Right now I'm listening to "Yellow Submarine." It's quite a curiosity and much better than a certain starship captain's rendition of another Beatle tune which shal remain annonamous.
Oh, come on. Captain Piccard singing "here comes the tea, doo da doo dum" as he's waiting for his Earl Grey to steep hardly classifies as a full-fledged "rendition."
I don't know what you'll think of these. On the whole they're not as sonically exciting as The Moog Cookbook or as artistically groundbreaking as Wendy Carlos' Timesteps, but they're authentic, Moog recordings from between (I'm guessing here) about 1968 and 1973. Some of them are quite interesting. I suggest that you download and sample them all, since you have that nice high-speed connexion at your disposal.
... yet you STILL read his journal. This confuses me. Hopefully, he'll be leaving you alone for a good long while.
On another note: you also can't convince my paren't cat, Conway Kitty, that he REALLY doesn't like your toes. He seems to have other ideas.
Well... I don't actually read his journal. I just happened to be going through my old posts, found one of his comments, and decided to check it out.
Oh, and I forgot to continue the story about Moofasa and the soup. I'm gonna add that to my post, and then I'm gonna go to bed.
Oh, and I sat down last night and finished Peasant's Quest with 150/150 points, not that anybody cares. I mention my score because everybody else I've talked to seems to be finishing it with 149. I'm not sure what I did differently, but the ending is the same.

I definitely don't know what you're doing differently. I can't get anywhere in the game. As in zero points. All I can find is people who need stuff and I can't help them. I was beginning to think that it was just something to anno us.
Re: Peasant's Quest
Hint: Talk man.
I finished with 150/150 at work yesterday. There's one item I can't seem to get. Don't nobody know what the gall durn thing is.
