Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

I think I'm going to eat lunch at Captain D's, too!

Meridian woman surprised with pearl in her oyster po-boy

MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) -- Sacheen Morgan says there's no doubt the seafood sandwich she ordered was the real thing — it contained a pearl.

Morgan, 29, said she was craving seafood so she asked a co-worker to pick her up the oyster sandwich from a Captain D's restaurant.

Morgan was enjoying her po-boy on Wednesday while at her desk when she spotted a small object nestled in the bun.

"I never expected to find a pearl in my sandwich," Morgan said. "I thought it was kind of neat and unusual."

After showing it off to several co-workers, Morgan took her find to a nearby jeweler who confirmed it was the real thing. [...]

MMmmmm. Oyster po-boy!

I'm sure there will be a run on them in the next few days.

(It certainly beats finding the normal stuff in your fast food--bugs or bandages or hair.)

UPDATE: I am forelorn--I thought that the po-boy was possibly a limited-time offering, like their scrumptious fried crawdads were, but ALAS, and ALACK--the local joint over across from the hospital didn't have a single thing which might conceivably have a semiprecious stone in it. ::sigh::
