Thanks for posting that - I've been in love with him since The Patriot, exacerbated by Harry Potter, now I must. See. Peter. Pan! Is he evil in this, or not? If not, I hope I can handle it.
M.Darcy - Thanks to Peter Pan, I am now in love with Jason Isaacs
Dougintx - congrats on moving to NYC. I fondly remember you letting me cut in the TKTS line during TARCon weekend!
I just got a TiVo - very excited! I'll be all ready for Survivor and TAR without tapes!
Question - I'm going to Providence, RI for a week, anyone familiar with the city? I won't have a lot of free time, but ideas for restaurants and/or things to do in the evening would be great!

I like that place, too, Cubbie. They have fabulous $6 lunches -- I leave with change from a $10 bill and a doggie bag. They weren't open on Christmas, though. The restaurants that were open were in a cluster, closest to the movies. It was almost as though they'd negotiated it with the theater, or talked among themselves and realized that there was enough business to call in their staffs.
the Thai Restaurant in Shirlington is my favorite.
Oh, yeah -- Happy New Year, folks.

I see I'm not the only one who spent New Year's Day watching World Idol.

No...I don't know of an air date for the TAR 5 finale, but, I thought this would be a fun idea.
Soooo...if anyone is interested, please email or post here.
BTW, I live in the NE part of Cincy--- in Loveland, home of Lil of Survivor fame...but don't get me started on that show.

Ryan Malcolm 4-eva!!! (Kidding-- I'm more of an Alexander fan, meself. HEE.)
In other words: No, you most definitely were not. Christmas, too. That 2-part horror show of a queso-fest was freaking AWESOME.

re: Jason Isaccs
He plays two parts - Mr. Darling and Captain Hook. As Captain Hook he is deliciously evil.
Is he evil in this, or not? If not, I hope I can handle it.

Also, I just learned that the royalties from Peter Pan go the Great Ormond Street Hospital. In 1987 (50 years after Barrie's death), when normally royalty rights would have expired, by a special act of Parliament, royalties were allowed to continue going to the hospital in perpetuity. Quite cool.

Didn't even have to use the brandy.
Kept it for yourselves, eh, rlb? Smart move.
I'm glad it went so well!

I would think that a Wimpy Skippy might be a hamburger. The bill would come on Tuesdays, of course.
home of the famous Wimpy Skippy. It's sort of like a calzone, but not.

I'm enjoying Providence very much!
M. Darcy - thanks for the info, Peter Pan is at the top of my "to see" list!

Any advice? Thanks in advance.

And, Glark, why isn't that shirt available in the store?

Best part? The older cat (Chandler) had been my pet for a few years and was completely declawed (f&b) when I introduced him to his baby sister, Phoebe. They fought a lot at first, but since he never "clawed" her, she never learned to use her claws when she was fighting. They just smack each other (and me, sometimes) when they're upset, but I've never had to worry about them drawing blood.

As for introduction suggestions - try for more neutral locations/settings, and for gradually increasing periods of time. Your first cat probably feels the new one's invading her territory, so having the new guy approach her favourite sleeping spot, etc probably isn't the best idea. Feeding them from separate bowls in the same room might be an idea, although if she's an aggressive type she might try to steal his food and precipitate a fight. If they're similar in size, you might have to let them go at each other a few times (provided there's no blood flowing, their eyeballs remain intact, etc) to settle the pecking order. good luck!

There are purists who think the seclusion should take a week or two or four. I'm not one of them. I keep the new cat in a room by her/himself for 2-3 days (with litter and food, of course), only going in occasionally, and lavishing attention on the resident cat. When I get fed up with the arrangement (it's a good thing my parents didn't name me Patience, because the irony would be unbearable), I open the door and let them fight it out. No blood, no problem.
I do two other things, though: First, I keep the separate litter box and food station for a few weeks. That seems to diffuse the tension somewhat. Second, I buy the new cat something of his/her own -- a basket with a new blanket, a cat tree, whatever. Just something that doesn't have the scent of the resident cat and the recently deceased cat whose slot the new cat is taking. And I don't worry about whether or not they become friends. Eventually they do, but there's not a whole lot a human can do to hasten that.
One product I hear about occasionally is called Feliway. It's a spray with feline pheromones, and you can also get a plug-in diffuser for it. Supposedly it keeps them calm in stressful situations.
When Cat #2 died, Cat #3, who'd been brought in to fill the long-hair slot sadly vacated by Cat #1, went into deep mourning, crying constantly. And I thought she'd hated #2. So even if they're not getting along famously, I do think they like having another cat around.

macaddict, that shirt is going to be handled the same way the "Teacher, Mother, Secret Lover" shirt was: he'll be announcing when he's taking pre-orders, then will have the shirts made up to fill the orders, and that'll be the end. Something about reducing the amount of inventory storage space he needs. Anyway, check the first page of the Store Comments thread in A/B/F for details.
Now, I have a question for the assembled wisdom that is this Meet Market. Since I've cut way back on my smoking (down from over a pack a day to under half-a pack) and switched from commercial cigarettes to roll-your-owns made with non-additive tobacco, my sense of taste is getting a lot more sensitive. Therein lies the problem. Is there a toothpaste out there anywhere that has a mild, even bland, flavor, preferably not mint? I've got about eight different kinds in the bathroom right now, and I hate them all; the mint flavor in them is just simply overwhelming, especially first thing in the morning. I've also tried the Crest Cinnamon-that's even worse. The Crest Citrus Burst Whitening gel is, so far, the one I can stand the best, but I really don't like it. I don't care what other properties it supposedly has (sensitive teeth, stain removing, whitening, whatever...) as long as it doesn't leave me feeling like I need to have a ciggie just to kill the taste.
