Today’s Japanese word is: 狐 (kitsune) – fox. xxxHOLiC featured a fox making おでん (oden) – Japanese hodgepodge. There was also this cute little fox kid. Oh! How adorable he was! He wasn’t cute as in drawing cute. It was his actions.

I hope every mother had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Mr T – Treat Your Mother Right (from RayAlome). A very old school video, but tune’s pretty catchy. Here are the lyrics (from MTBSOBSF):

Treat her right
Treat your mother right
Treat her right
Treat her right

There is no other
Like Mother
So treat Her right
I always Love Her
My Mother
So treat Her right, treat Her right

M is for the moan, and the miserable groan
from the pain that She felt when I was born

O is for the oven with it’s burnin’ heat
where She stood makin’ sure I had something to eat

T is for the time that She stayed up at night
and took my temperature when I wasn’t feelin’ right

H is for the hard earned money She spent
to keep clothes on my back and try to pay da’ rent

E is every wrinkle I put on Her face
and every worry that I caused when I stayed out late

The last letter R is that She taught me Respect
and for the room up in Heaven that I know She’ll get

MR. T Chorus

Female Chorus

She’s a Queen
Second to none
Take care of Mother
You only get one

Female Chorus


MR. T Chorus

Liam IMs me a week ago asking if I was doing the Da Vinci Code game. I told him I wasn’t and he tells me about the prizes: the Cryptex replica that 10,000 people were getting and the bigger prizes later on. Anyway, it appears that people are receiving their Cryptex already and tons are already on eBay (from MsticAzn). So far the highest it sold for (Buy It Now) is at $99. The cheapest was at $35. However, there’s one open auction at $209.39. Pretty amazing…

Can you be summoned and ordered to appear on Judge Judy? (from MS newsgroup) – So if Judge Judy, who is not without her detractors, can’t compel litigants to appear, how does the program attract participants? This article explains how researchers scour small claims cases nationwide and report potential cases to the show’s producers. After selected plaintiffs and defendants agree to come on the show, they “sign papers saying the judge’s decision will be binding.” The award limit is $5,000. There is also an additional payment for showing up.

Quote from /. (#15328948):

If I do something stupid and 8 people see, I might shrug it off. If I do something stupid and 80 people see, I might not hang around that part of town. But if I do something stupid and 80,000 people see, then I might be scarred for life. It’s just not meant to work that way.

Hey, you’re not alone, especially not on slashdot. The same thought goes through every Open Source coders mind when they submit code to the repository.


Worry over mobile phone explosionsAt least five mobile phones have exploded over the last two months in Brazil, causing anxiety among phone users and making news headlines. The incidents, representing only a fraction of the 89 million phones in circulation in Brazil, all involved Motorola phones. The company said it was investigating and Brazil’s telecommunication agency is pursuing the case as well. KABOOM!

Bears Eat Monkey in Front of Zoo VisitorsBears killed and ate a monkey in a Dutch zoo in front of horrified visitors, witnesses and the zoo said Monday. In the incident Sunday at the Beekse Bergen Safari Park, several Sloth bears chased the Barbary macaque into an electric fence, where it was stunned. Horrified? It would’ve been so cool to see this in action! I mean you see these on the Discovery Channel everyday.
