i am not a stuffed tiger.

"lucky one"

In case you missed the news, Keiko ("Free Willy") the whale, and inspiration for too many Clinton jokes died this weekend. CNN reports on the private funeral ceremony:
Keiko, the killer whale star of the "Free Willy" movies, was buried Monday in a snow-bound pasture during the deep darkness of Nordic winter in a ceremony kept secret from the public. [cnn]

It does sound beautiful:

I went to my office today to pick up some reading materials, but after a few hours going home to do laundry seemed much more appealing. I'm starting to worry about my total lack of xmas shopping. I was going to buy my cousin an "I fucked Paris Hilton" T-shirt from ian, but I discovered that such an item sells for $80.

Now I'm hanging out waiting for Chris so we can go to the KEXP Yule Benefit at EMP [ flyer ].
