sdocat once again took me out of my cosy little spiderweb of favorite places and dragged me down to the Austin Zoo. There I learned many interesting things--the North American Black Bear has an astonishing resemblance to canis lupus, there are evil devil-deer with fangs, that creatures at the top of the food chain are lazy and a bit on the dull side, that a lion eating a pumpkin is cute in a scary way (the strings look a bit like entrails), and a lion eating a deer leg pressed up against the side of the cage for all to see is just plain scary, particularly the way the hoof flops around [shudder]. I do appreciate being dragged out of my stasis. Thanks!

Made caramel without any lasting scars, so go me, a bit of a first, and didn't get any on my velvet jacket. My mother also has caramel scars, it's kind of a hereditary curse. To everyone that came to my halloween party, thank you--you mean the world to me. Plus, I can't eat all these damned caramel apples alone.

Badger, incidentally, was grateful for the boffer-sword company, and encourages me to meet more furries that appreciate the subtle grace of whiffle weapons.

We ran out of halloween candy, so I started giving away my huge stash of costume makeup :) Oh, their little eyes lit up, or else they were very confused.

Swartze, please don't sneak up behind me to rub my nipples again. I'm not giving it away.

Really wanting to write a rhyming, Edgar Allen Poe-ey sort of verse. I need a good subject matter, something appropriately surreal and possibly morbid. I need a plot that rhymes. Maybe something will occur to me, but I'm finding the blank screen of LiveJournal to be more of a threat than a challenge today. The curser is blinking, but I think it will have to stay blinking.

Austin has a zoo? Caramel can give you scars? And all this time I thought making caramel dip was as simple as popping some solid cubes into that cheap broiling fondue that's being advertised on the tube these days.

(tsk, tsk). Not if you intentionally look for the most complicated recipe you can find, Reggie. And the Austin Zoo is a few miles south of Oak Hill. It's quite nice, not a patch on San Antonio, but a good place, with two foxes, four cougars, one wolf, and no hyenas.

"Yes, we have no hyenas" will have to be a song parody in the near future.
