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.

Observations at the Food Court

I had to go back to the AmSouth Harbert building for lunch today to get a booster shot of hot and sour soup. The cold is doing much better, thank you. The intense fatigue left quickly, but I am still having a good bit of congestion, despite my constant use of the two neti pots that Jordana sent me.

Anyway, the soup and the kung pao chicken were both nice and spicy. Sadly, I had already ordered when I noticed that Golden Rule Barbecue had opened up. Mmmm. Barbecue. I'm still a bit dubious that it will be as good as sitting down at one of the sticky tables and seeing guys sweat and labor over an open pit--they bring the barbecue over to the restaurant after it's been cooked at the real restaurant. Still, I'd like to try it and find out for sure. Maybe tomorrow.

The whole atmosphere seemed a bit odd, too. AmSouth-Harbert tries to be all hoity-toity, and yesterday they had a guy playing a piano in the atrium, and today they had a lady playing the harp. You might be surprised to learn that female harp players are offended if someone calls them a harpy. I know I was. (Not really.)

Fortune Cookie Wisdom of the Day:

"The power you desire lives within your heart."

Who knew that the desire to be Earth's supreme leader could be found in such a unlikely organ?!

And then--

"Good humor is the health of the soul, sadness it's [sic] poison."

Mmmmm. Ice cream!

Anyway, that's about it.
