Seeing the truncated subject line of one piece of spam actually tempted me to look at it (not that I'd ever act on spam, needless to say, other than perhaps tracking down the perpetrator) - "Interact with wild a...". I was so disappointed when it wasn't "animals", but "and kinky girls free". I'd have accepted "armadillos" too. Maybe "anteaters" as well.

From an article on attempts to trademark smells in the EU: "Only one scent has so far won EU trademark protection: the smell of freshly cut grass. A Dutch perfume company registered it in 2000 and uses it to make tennis balls smell good."

One or two folks might be interested in this: "Big Dinos Return", over at the Lawrence Hall of Science, at UC Berkeley, until January 16 2006. One line in particular caught my eye - "giant robotic dinosaurs". How can anyone say no to giant robotic dinosaurs? (Though, the exhibits seem to be geared for, say, 12 year olds and younger, judging by the site)

Woohoo! masem pointed out word that Warner is actually - finally - considering a DVD release for Animaniacs! [Edit: added the missing link. Rawr!]

So, what playground stuff did you most enjoy? ^_^ (I was always a big fan of concrete pipes, but a slide like that looks like way too much fun :) .. and just in case you're not familiar with the strip, zoom over to bad_rabbit for much more.

As for Sunday? I woke up and managed to be waiting by the door at 10am - a good thing, as it turned out, as my reply to those picking me up didn't get through, so they only knew the cross-streets. Just as well I'd said (in that email) I'd be waiting outside. ^_^ In brief: tossed around and spun briefly on Kong (a 'coaster of the suspending variety), watched some penguins and stingrays, some very leisurely, very happy time in a pool with three dolphins (to the point of feeling where their few "whiskers" were for their first month, and seeing the difference between male and female dolphins) with seven friends (including Smash and Dragon, whom I'd not seen in probably seven years), perfect stuffing at a Korean barbecue place, with the rounding off to an absolutely fabulous day being a thick slice of pumpkin cheesecake.

Warner is actually - finally - considering a DVD release for Animaniacs!

As much as I wish it were true (and for TTA, too), I'll believe it when I actually see it...
True, the word conveyed by the article was carefully portrayed as tentative - on the other paw, one would think such a "leak" wouldn't come out unless there were some serious consideration, by way of testing the waters. Positive word to the Powers That Be over at WB probably couldn't hurt, of course..

BTW, I do hope you've managed to see Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit. ^_^ (And whilst I'll be buying rather fewer DVDs compared to earlier, that'll easily be amongst the Must Haves, for me. Not that the choice of species hurt, of course :)
"This is very early news, and is all still subject to change of course."

LOL :-P Well, I hope it's true. There are a number of the Animaniacs cartoons that I never got to see. So this'd be a DVD set that I'd actually play.
Same here - I probably only caught half of them. TTA I had better exposure to, thankfully, though I only have about 70% of them - but that's still more than were officially released on VHS. :) (Of which volumes I did pick up a few! Including Tiny Toons Music Television, and Two-Tone Town, IIRC, plus - of course - HISMV. On VHS first, and then laserdisc, woo!)

I'll have to drop WB a line in support of such a release, and for TTA too.
