Rattling blog
What every Mac user wants for Christmas: Susan Kare t-shirts. Thanks to brrm for the tip. (The Linux user in your life may be more interested in this.)

Less (fewer!) thanks to spyinthehaus for introducing me to an unhealthy addiction. It's not that I'm not grateful, it's just that I could have done with getting some work done this month. Really busy people are recommended to try this version of space invaders instead.

Now, on an unrelated note, friends will know that I'm all for a bit of healthy antici ....... pation; but for a really nasty cliffhanger, the NHS's online doctor takes the biscuit. Electrodes? You can't leave it there, dammit!

And finally, a nice slice of fill-in-the-blanks procrastination, borrowed from barrysarll:

I am not : easily led
I love : not wisely but too well
I hate : thoughtlessness
I fear : nothing but fear itself
I hope : even now, despite myself
I hear : rain falling outside my window
I crave : salad
I regret : the things I didn't do
I cry : less than I used to
I care : far too much
I always : keep talking
I believe : that it matters
I feel alone : at nights
I listen : to the silences between things
I hide : out in the open
I drive : carefully
I sing : enthusiastically
I dance : like there's nobody watching
I write : to prove I exist
I play : well with others
I miss : most things I aim at
I search : with Google
I learn : something new every day
I feel : everything too intensely
I know : just how much I don't know
I say : what I think and what I mean
I dream : things of chaotic beauty
I wonder : about everything
I want : more life
I have : too many material things
I give : all that I can
I fell : or maybe I jumped
I fight : when I must
I need : an audience

*faints*

Okay, I've had a good look at this Penguin Warehouse. They surely cannot be serious. Everyone knows rockhoppers are inveterately vicious with humans and about as practical a pet as a wolverine! :|

Nor any little blues either, for that matter.

My housemate galliana is keen on badgers...

No! I'd prefer a perfectly innocent badger-fancier convention, with lots of badgers, and tea and cake.

More civilised than penguins then, considering they only eat fish.
panzerpenguin From: panzerpenguin Date: October 14th, 2004 11:32 am (UTC) (Link)
And squid, shellfish and pork luncheon meat.

Nah, you're thinking of Henri Bergson.
panzerpenguin From: panzerpenguin Date: October 14th, 2004 02:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
If penguins do eat Henri Bergson, then David Attenborough has been extremely discrete about it.

You can have too much salad. Sometimes a girl just needs tea and cake.

Shrug. Works for me.

Earl Grey and a slice of sponge cake, for preference.

Perhaps you prefer "tea and cakes and ices".

_Northern_ penguins?
panzerpenguin From: panzerpenguin Date: October 14th, 2004 09:31 am (UTC) (Link)
In fact, they prefer to be known by a name not found in any human language... ;)

My cats are, of course, honorary penguins. They are after all black and white (collectively) and eat fish.

You may think at first I'm as mad as a hatter

But the impression persists after knowing you for a while, too.

Er, yes. Well done. :)

Hmmph. I suppose you'll be telling me next that there aren't trained penguins working as bank tellers inside cash machines?

I always make sure to squawk politely at the cash machine penguins when I take out money.

I am not: going to fill in any more sodding memes.
