OT page-widening addendum by tps12 (4.00 / 1) #1 Thu Mar 31, 2005 at 12:30:25 AM EST
My brother finally emailed me pix of the fam's new kitties. The mother is one year old, and is named Mimi (she came pre-named) and the kitten is called Mochi. "Mimi" is Japanese for "ear" (though it's not clear that the name is intended to be Japanese) and "mochi" means "mochi."

Mimi is young enough that she still acts like a kitten.

You can build the most elegant fountain in the world, but eventually a winged rat will be using it as a drinking bowl.

one of my earliest internets memories by tps12 (4.00 / 2) #8 Thu Mar 31, 2005 at 01:40:07 AM EST
Involved the discovery of the Usenet Star Wars group, and the subsequent discovery of slash fanfic. Very disturbing.

Are you going to skip the JarJar market by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #9 Thu Mar 31, 2005 at 02:03:38 AM EST
scene, where we see his incredible oral powers?

yeah by tps12 (2.00 / 0) #10 Thu Mar 31, 2005 at 02:14:10 AM EST
My decisions are somewhat arbitrary, I'll admit. So much crap happens in this movie that has nothing to do with the plot; 3PO's intro is just as much a lame throwaway sequence as Jar-Jar stepping in poo, and I don't really have any justification behind calling one "great" and ignoring the other. I've even left out stuff that does have some significance in the plot (Anakin's rivalry with Sebulba, for example) in favor of this trivial nonsense. What can I say.
