sharkins has a cat whose purr sounds like a fan-belt that needs replacing. I thought it was just Mao, but now I've heard similar noises emanating from Xiombarg on a couple of occasions. I wonder if it's just an older cat thing... weird.

So, a bright spot in the gloom of yesterday afternoon: there's a new little shop open in the complex up the street from me called Lunch Money Video & DVD. The owner seems cool, we chatted a little - they opened Wednesday I believe. He rents & sells DVDs and video games - duh, I know. I'm delighted to have someplace to rent DVDs from that close, and it seemed like he had a reasonably eclectic selection. Starting small, but that's sound; even so, the titles he had that I'd seen were ones I'd probably watch again.

I rented 25th Hour, because I couldn't resist Ed Norton staring soulfully out of the cover at me. I have a lot of respect Spike Lee as a director, but I don't always connect with his films. At the risk of becoming a cliche, I imagine it is "a New York thing", and I have never really gotten that.

It's a good film, I recommend it. I'd be interested in hearing what other people think as well - karlosthejackal, I'm guessing you've seen this if anyone I know has...

who got it from klig:
I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well. I read your fic, or we have something else in common and we chat occasionally. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she likes spinach."

I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal.
