As with a low sucking sound it slowly disappeared again, Starbuck still gazing at the agitated waters where it had sunk, with a wild voice exclaimed—“Almost rather I had seen Moby Dick and fought him, than to have seen thee, thou white ghost!”
      “What was it, Sir?” said Flask.
      “The great live squid, which, they say, few whale-ships ever beheld and returned to their ports to tell of it.”

Moby-Dick, 1851

Guys, FURL sucks. It has sucked for years, and I'm sorry I've been using it. I have switched over to delicious; I would have done this much sooner, but they made it really difficult the last time I tried.

Uhmm, apparently archives haven't really been working since late 2006. THANX for the heads up guys! They are temporarily fixed, and will stay temporarily fixed until I migrate to new software/layout. I have said some hilarious things in the last 7 years, that future generations will feel lucky I preserved. Go check them out.

Woah, it's been 3 years since the last news update! Fuzzysquid now has a webclips icon for your iPhone! It'll automagically show up when you add FS to your home screen. Atom and RSS feeds have been available for a few years now, but I never made special mention of it.

Since it seems to be popular, and it's been linked in a lot of different places besides here, I've decided to post the LJ Images page. At least in the news, at least for now. It's also getting some Google ads because you LiveJournal people are sucking up all my bandwidth (35% for that one page!)

All you had to say is "I'd like X food tonight, instead of Thai" Dont' blame me T___T


This post was written this morning, long before I knew you were even going to be in town. Synchronicity.

Dinner was really good tonight. See, when it comes to Thai, I just need someone to order for me.


I think soft-shelled crab is one of the best foods ever. Evar. Evrrrr. Vrre? Anyway, what other animal comes naturally pre-wrapped in a delicious, crunchy shell? If we ever figure out how to genetically engineer them to grow batter (and possibly be so chronically depressed that they deep-fry themselves) they will be UNSTOPPABLE !

But more seriously, I think all you need to know about someone can be learned through their eating habits. I find that I don't hold in high esteem people who say things like "I'll eat anything, except for XYZ", where XYZ = whole categories of food. This applies to vegans as well as people who won't eat sushi. This is not to say you shouldn't have preferences. I don't like Thai food*. And by that I mean, I don't crave it. But I don't have the culinary output of an entire culture blacklisted, because I know what I've experienced so far in life is only tiny fraction of what's out there. And that makes me happy. I think those that deny themselves are actually pretty arrogant in their worldviews.

And I find that the ethical arguments for dietary self-flagellation are mostly red herrings (you can be an ethical omnivore, and this takes a similar level of effort as being lacto-ovo-macro-whatever).

Add.: Regarding Thai food, I recognized later that very day, my real problem is needing someone experienced to help me order.
