Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

08/02/2005: Might have Made a BIG mistake…

…Showing this article -- Furby has `evolved,' but it still won't help clean your room -- to my daughter, Cory.

”Remember Furby? You may have gotten one for Christmas in 1998, when the first bird-beaked, big-eared creatures were introduced.

They were cute in a creepy way, and became a big hit--more than 40 million were sold. The toy was discontinued in 2000, but loads of Web pages devoted to Furby sprung up, including numerous hacking sites, and even a Furby plastic surgery site.

Now Furby is back, and it has "evolved." Bigger, and with six times the memory, Furby also is more lively, thanks to advanced voice recognition and new robotic technology Hasbro calls Emototronics. …”

Now, I’m going to have to search through endless toy bins in the crawl space to find one of these techno-critters for her to play with. And Yipes…these things NEVER shut UP.

[And as a funny aside, scared the crap out of our movers when they picked up a packed box and it began “Singing” in furbish!!! LOL]

Now, you tell me whether the Furby doesn’t look like My Chinchilla- Chin-Ho.
