Mousoleum – $7000


Mousoleum pair head to head chapel area near bird sanctuary, level 4. Regularly $8450.

Who’s the owner of the plot that’s made for you and me?
M-i-c, k-e-y, M-o-u-s…. er….oleum!
Tiny little headstones are as welcome as can be!
M-i-c, k-e-y, M-o-u-s – oleum!
Mouseoleum! (Donald Duck… er … Sanctuary!) Mouseoleum! (Duck Sanctuary!)

I know, I know. I’m going to hell.

Thanks, Mark!

    And the flooring is easy-care lime-oleum. I used to have lime-oleum flooring in my kitchen and it always smelled fresh.

        Absolutely! Would you like one or two slices, buttered, margarined, or marmaladed? We also have a fine collection of nuts around here somewhere – I’m sure they will turn up shortly.

          I always thought hell was the international transfer holding pen at LAX. Hopeless, cheerless place, and they invariably shut the shops about half an hour after you arrive for your 6-hour ‘layover’. Best/worst time was on a choir trip to the UK. Thirty bored fifteen-year-old girls with nothing to eat or drink (not even vending machines? Seriously?) and no shops to browse = trouble. Luckily our chorale teacher was kinda awesome so we ended up singing for a goodly portion of it to entertain/torture the other passengers.

        *Thanks for the good wishes, Gramps, but “mazal tov” isn’t exactly right. It’s used to mean “congratulations,” which is not really what one says on a holiday. “Shanah tovah” means happy (new) year, which is what this time of year is, and “happy holidays” works just about any time. : )

          If I had “pull” with t SA, cir travel would be much different.

          Astro, it depends. 1st, it depends on whether my desktop is “playing pretty” with YSaC or not. 2nd, it depends on whether I feel like using the keyboard on the tablet, or not. Which often depends on how many other tabs (and where) are open. My location matters, too. If I’m out of the house, it’s easier to use this tablet as a tablet rather then ‘open’ as a laptop. At home, probably 60/40 laptop Vs. tablet.

          But, the handwriting option is very cool. Excepting phonetic Spelling, or can’t /vernacular, or specialized argot. Meaning writing even pseedocode is right out. And there is no hunt-n-peck typing like Stylus, one-pick-at-a-time typing for slow. It’s slower for ALT+ characters like ALT+164 for the “n” in jalapeno (which ought have a tilde~).

          But, I also have to proofread a lot more following the recognition, and after the s/w auto-completes words, too. Sometimes it is more clear, sometimes less-just like so many days ending in “y”.

      Self-contained except may need cleaning, means the birds will be feeding on the mice. My first thought is kookaburras, as they love mice, yum yum, but they don’t, er, chirp. There would have to be a sound baffle device that would change the Trade Mark Kookaburra Laugh into “the hypnotic chirping of birds” and now you’re talking real money. I think you need to charge more, Hammy.

        Every time I see the word Kookabura I think of a song I learned in grade school called “Kookabura Sits In The Old Gum Tree”, which now makes me think about Men at Work’s “Land Down Under” because they just lost a lawsuit where in a Canadian company accused them of ripping off the Kookabura song in that one. No joke. Maybe they should have thought of this, oh, say, 25 years ago when Men at Work were still making bank?
        Um, yeah, sorry for the glimpse into my head. Have a Vegemite sammich.

          Being not of the Anglo-Saxon persuasion, I’m really not sure, but I think it is some sort of paste-like puree of something…probably veggies if the name is accurate. You’ll have to wait for one of our resident Brits from the UK or Oceania, or ask Uncle Google.

          See, based on the context in the song, I wasn’t sure if it was Austre-alien or Belgian. Come to think of it, I really should google the lyrics. I used to sing along when ever it was on the radio and it usually went something like:
          Do you come from a land down under? Where grumble rar and rumble grumbler…

          [corey] Their defence (as I understand it) was that the Kookaburra part of the tune was included deliberately, but was not a ‘substantial part’ of the work as required for copyright infringement, or, alternatively, was covered by the ‘fair use’ defence.[/corey]

          [Yeast extract condiment corey]Also, Marmite and Vegemite are both pale imitations of Bovril, used to make ‘beef tea’ for invalids (no, I’m not making this up, nor is it a euphemism) and something a flatmate used to use as a hangover cure. Blech.

          Plus, traditionally, Kiwis eat Marmite, while Aussies stick to Vegemite, though as with most generalisations it’s mostly hokum.[/yeast extract condiment corey]

    Ok, with punctuation this is how I read it.

    Mousoleum pair, head to head, Chapel area near bird sanctuary, level 4

    This makes me think it is a secret message about a fight that is about to take place. Two Mousoleum fighters, probably Billy the Exterminator and his brother Ricky, going head to head in the chapel area near the bird sanctuary. I am still puzzled by the level 4 part. The money is how much they would get if this was actually on HBO but for this venue they will take a little less since they can keep any bugs or rodents that they kill in the process of the fight. Good eatin’.

    I definitely thought too much about that. The things I do to avoid writing a paper.

      the kitty is adorable, but I think (s)he may have world domination on the brain….or maybe tuna treats.

    Say goodbye to Kirby, because seeing how I never got to see him, I’m assuming something is wrong with the picture. So I’m getting a new one.

      “Goodbye to Kirby, because seeing how I never got to see him, I’m assuming something is wrong with the picture. So I’m getting a new one.”

      Did I say it right? What do I win?

          Yay, Ratchet….now let’s see how long it takes for him to show up….if ever…

          Yeah, I’m going with the “it was the image” theory. I see Ratchet. But I didn’t see Kirby.

          Oh! I know this one! Size Matters came with my psp, but I couldn’t wrap my near-middle-aged brain around the 3D navigation.

          Still havn’t bought Size Matters, but…I don’t have a PSP.

          And…uhhh….3D navigation came around AT LEAST 12 years ago. That’s just for the games I remember.

          Uh huh, and 12 years ago I was a 24 year old female who was interested in Beat literature and the hanging out in bars and coffee shops that came with that. I only started gaming again when air travel became a regular part of my job, so I bought a gameboy to keep me busy during the long delays. Honestly, it was embarrassingly painful switching from the classic reissues to the new games. I had no idea how to “save” my games so I spent a lot of time in the first stage of Aria of Sorrow.
