So, the voice of Chef quit South Park.

.. Chef returns in the season 10 opener (13.6MB). And I'm not saying any more. Well, okay - the word for the day is "editing". =:)

<td>Yay! Following Mitzi's departure from Bunnyton, the new resident turned out to be Coco. ^_^ So that's three lapines in all, out of the eight, including Tiffany and Pippy.</td><td></td>

Welcome to Irving! "Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday." "At one location, for example, agents and police arrested patrons of a hotel bar. Some of the suspects said they were registered at the hotel and had no intention of driving. Arresting authorities said the patrons were a danger to themselves and others." Similarly in Abilene and San Angelo.

When thinking of Texas, I'm reminded of that demotivational poster, "It may be that your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others."

marko_the_rat might be interested in this Radio 4 adaptation (40MB, 1h27m) of Terry Pratchett's The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, broadcast in August 2003, yet remaining unavailable commercially. "The Amazing Maurice is a talking cat, who leads his Educated Rodents, a group of talking rats, as they go from town to town being a plague so that their accomplice, a boy piper, can 'lure them all away' from the town, after which they share the money the piper makes."

If you're using GPG or similar, I have a new public key up now, courtesy of the post-compromise v1.4.2.2.
I must listen to it tonight. Terry Pratchett's always a fun read (if occasionally embarrassing, when he causes one to laugh out loud on the train :) - funny, and so often insightful at the same time. (Perhaps that was true to an even greater extent with Douglas Adams, though his style was much more uneven)

Needless to say, if you come across any new news about Pixar's Rataouille, do let me know! They've not produced a bad film yet, and this is finally a thoroughly furry one from them.
I have been keeping an ear perked for any news relating to Ratatouille, but news has been very thin on the ground, except that its release has been pushed back to 2007. :( There's also meant to be a film adaptation of The Tales of Desperaux I haven't heard much about lately.
Now that I've listed to the Amazing Maurice, I wanted to say thank you very much for putting it up. True to the book, I cried towards the end. I guess I'm just a sap when it comes to rats. Don't spread it around. ;)
