Metal stomach, flesh stomach
Forgetting that one had eaten all of the cereal one had at work makes one's stomach angry. This anger is quickly alleviated by remembering the vending machines offer a selection of Pop Tarts and the work space provides a toaster nearby. However, one's stomach's ire is Greatly Increased when said vending machine's stomach refuses to relinquish either the dollar given or the Pop Tarts requested. One must consider the general material composition of one's self versus the vending machine before following any rash course of action that may engender angry toe, fist or head.

Be advised: In the Hunger Wars, metal trumps flesh.
Bow to your metal masters.

We've been askig the same question since we have three and are considering a 4th. You haev the space for many animals with yuor house, potentially. Our one bedroom is packed with cat already.

You could get rid of the dogs and get 2 MORE cats and still have less animal mass in totality. :)

However, as is, you seem to have a robust menagerie and may not what to add more menag to that rie.

1 Kitty is too many kitties. Remember they scale exponentially, not linearly.

Jeez... Overreact much?

I know you *hearts* kitties. I won't take away your kitties. You, in fact, can have ALL of the kitties.

On the topic of metal masters:

1. Don't hurt yourself, okay?
2. You didn't have braces when you were a kid, didja? Woulda learned this whole flesh+metal=bad thing WAAAAY back then.

Tummy anger trumps reasonable attitudes about metal?

8? I was thinking maybe later.

Why have I not gotten coffee yet this morning?
abmann From: abmann Date: December 9th, 2005 05:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
I don't know why yuo have no coffee.

I realized that 8 was a bad guesstimate in my second meeting this morning.

I had coffee.

Didn't get an invite to around the world this year (eating at TKE + going to Madison a lot in the first half of the semester + semester from the twilight zone = invisible me to much of campus), but I'd love to see you guys if you have the time. Give me a call...I'll probably be at the chaus much of tonight-there's going to be bands!

PS-Do you guys have a place to stay tonight? I know of a few people who would almost certainly let me crash with them if you need/want to take my bed.
abmann From: abmann Date: December 9th, 2005 08:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Will you be around Saturday?

I can't guarantee my memory if I get supa drunk. However, if you give me a call after midnight I might be funny to poke and prod. :)

We're crashing on feodoric's/phoeniz_snake's extra mattress.

I will be around saturday; however, I am going to TKE's semiformal around 6:30ish (and am taking the lovely Ramona as my date) and, given that there is an open bar, during/after that event I make no guarantees on my state of mind or chaos level. I'll try giving you a call sometime tonight though for sure.
