In "Sock Dreams"

I'm wearing socks from Sock Dreams right now.

In "Curious George softly weeps."

Grant Morrison's WE3 comic. Thinking about if they make it into a movie and then watching it almost does it too. Two Brothers, I was barley able to get through this movie.

In "Curious George: medicating a cat"

I have a Siamese with a few health problems. I give him 2 or 3 pills with every meal. This was a huge problem for both of us at first (one infected cat bite on my finger), but he got more used to it and I got better. I hold his front paws with one hand and then open his jaws with the same hand I'm holding the pills (practice makes perfect). After shoving the pills in I clamp his jaw shut till he swollows. I've also starting giving him lactated ringers at home. Those are basically saline under the skin and involve sticking a needle in and waiting for 200ml to go in. This was almost impossible to do at first needing one or two people to hold him down, then I got one of those cat bags linked to above and I can adminstrate lactated ringers all alone. Best $30 I ever spent!

In "<b>Curious, George:</b> Loud guitars and thick glasses."

The Epoxies play the best retro new wave ever (site currently down :( ). Frank Black's Places Named After Numbers is a great song about astronomy. Milo from the Descendants has a doctorate in biochemistry and teaches at UW Madison, I believe. Their song 1420 is about someone's SAT scores.

In "Wondering George: which online forums do you spend time on?"

TCPunk needs daily visits but I never log off of Purple Pink and Orange if I can help it.

In "Punk'd!"

There is so much real punk out there. Next week I'm going to see the Subhumans even!

In "Curious George: Earrings on Men - both ears? one ear?"

I believed in the right or left ear stuff when I was in grade school. :) Now I have both ears pierced and am a male. Started with the mall standards but have since stretched them to 16 guage (which isn't very big) and have CBRs in each ear. Why CBRs? Well, I really like them. I love metal rings. I have silver rings on my hands as well as I've always detested the color of gold. I don't think they have a signifigance other than perhaps familiarity with piercing in general. Of course I also have a studded black leather jacket, so take it with a grain of salt. :)

In "Curious, George: Recycling"

I've read that the plastic caps aren't recyclable too. Where I live (St. Paul, MN) they don't even pick up plastic at the curb like they do for other recycling. I haul it to a recyling center. This article from the University of Minnesota's newspaper may be a few years old but seems to indicate that there has been an increased use of plastic (over aluminum) in soda consumption and a decrease in demand for the plastic after it's use.
