Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/17/13 1:21pm Holly in NC:

@Kat - I had a cat who ADORED cantaloupe, super treat. The 3 current beasts are all basic carnivores, who oddly enough despise fish. When I open sardines they bury scratch at the can!

It depends on what they are fed when they're kittens, right? I never gave Zero-G my food when she was small so she doesn't usually want it -- usually it's meat or dairy. Naturally she loves cheese and yogurt.

@kat - same cat who liked cantaloupe liked kahlua in milk - I can't remember how we found out, as household doesn't like or generally serve kahlua or milk. Nonetheless we'd buy a nip bottle for Allie's birthday each year & make her a very wee cocktail ;-)
@shortley - Same cat as above, when slowly dying of indeterminate cancer used to run up to my smoker housemate & gently tap his mouth to remind him to share. She really seemed more comfortable & peaceful after he'd waft a bit of smoke in her face. I was horrified & pissed off until I saw the effect - & he never did it unless she "asked".

When Sea Change came out on vinyl I had to buy it even though I had it on CD all ready.

Ah, someone else played this on FMU recently (IIRC) -- love the low sparks of Traffic!

@Katya: Thanks a bunch for your fan favor on my Birthday Song -- I returned the favor in case you hadn't seen that yet. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/17/13 1:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks PMD. I've gotten multiples since I corrected the email typo on my resume. However, until I get my first paycheck after I ink one of these, I'll just have to hold my breath.

Hope your offer works out well for you as well.

(always check your resume for typos)

See ya Charlie! Holly, kat, NDBob, everyone else!

Hi Laura! And y'all have a great week -- thanks for dropping by today! See you next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/17/13 2:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Diddo here, NGH!

(Btw, is that *my* copy of "Reds" you got from Netflix? ;) I had that literally for months recently, occupying one of my 2 DVD slots, all the while paying to have 2 out at once. I wanted to watch it, but was never in the "mood" to watch THAT, y'know? :)
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 2:00pm kat330:

@Katya: You pressed some button to "I'm a fan" the entry -- and I did the same on your FMA site.

@Matt: It changes EVERYTHING you've ever written under an account avatar to whatever you establish at any given minute.
Avatar Thu. 1/17/13 2:00pm Katya Oddio:

Fantastic show! See you all again next week!
  Thu. 1/17/13 2:01pm Tower:

What a great song to round out this set. I enjoyed the show as always, Charlie.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/17/13 2:02pm Matt from Springfield:

I said that I should write Warren Beatty for a "producer" credit, since I've dropped more money on "Reds" than anyone since he did! :D

Happy Anniversary, Charlie! Sorry I'm a bit late - I needed my ears when you broadcast live. Nice segue btw!

Feel free to borrow my ears; they're very large :)
