Re: Food fleeting thoughts

I got that for a few years after going officially vegan/vegetarian (medical reasons). It was probably five years of occasionally freaking out and inhaling a steak before I lost the taste for meat.

Now I jones for fried tofu or a hunk o' peanut butter. Same dealio.

Re: Miscellaneous language questions

Tradition, partly. When I listen carefully to a duck, it sounds to me more like "waat" with a really sore throat. If I walk around making "waat" noises, though, no one will understand that I'm trying to sound like a duck. Because everyone knows that ducks go quack.

I could be doing chores. Saving orphans. Solving world wev. Instead I'm watching clever clips of instruments that I hate. (Though I'd play with one for a while if it were lying around, naturally. I'd jam with it for one song, then throw it far away while it was on fire.)

Looney Tunes, all the way. I think Tom and Jerry might have been my favourite, though Bugs was way up there. He was kinda mean sometimes, though.
