I really hate tiled background images.

I don't even know who Arthur is, and I want that potato.

Well, I don't really want it, but, you know...

Didn't Neil Gaiman sell a jar of salsa that was made out of a tomato with a horn just like "Lil'Jimi"?

ANYWAY, my month of dream recording is almost up. I don't want this notebook. What would I want this for? I KNOW I have issues. (Like I won't write with black ink. What's up with that?)

Could be a forme fruste of hangnails. Do you get hangnails?

The "You Name It, I'll Tattoo It" lady has way too many terms and conditions to make it worth the 5K. Always read the fine print.

I don't have any proof, but a couple years ago, Metafilter's own prodigal son, pretty_generic, successfully sold his soul on eBay. As I recall, he didn't get very much for it.

Apparently Dan Quayle has a "potatoe" farm, now.

For the curious, this is Arthur.

I have a rant about how back in the day of Arthur's early books, he was this awesome ugly hairy thing that actually looked like an aardvark (Arthur's ostensible species) and how over the years he has grown increasingly cutesier, but I'll save it for another day.
