Could I borrow your dog or cat? - Journal of Omnifarious

01:48 pm - Could I borrow your dog or cat?

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I need to do some cephalopod hunting. I couldn't find any in my couch cushions and now I'm at a loss as to where to look. Perhaps I could lay down some moist clothes and hope they are attracted to them, since my apartment is generally devoid of wet places.

I think I'm tired and kinda loopy today. :-)

I need to make my Helium icon.

Current Mood: [mood icon] giddy

I didn't lose anything. :-)

But also, a snail is a mollusc not a cephalopod. :-)

Has Cthulhu taken up residence in you r couch?

Well, if he had, that would've solved my cephalopod hunting problem when I searched the couch. I presume that Cthulu can't really hide very easily.

But, such is not the case. Would you know where he was, and if I could get him sometime in the next week?

Got a goat?

No. :-( Despite rainonthewind's predilection for goat dairy products of various kinds, she gets them all at grocery stores, and thus there is no goat to be found anywhere near that I know of.

Then no Cthulhu for you. Try the fish docks.

Should I expect to find Cthulu there, or just some random other cephalopod?

I would bet on the random one.

Well, that's good. Because if Cthulu was the most convenient cephalopod, I'd have been happy with it. But I think, really, Cthulu is a bit of overkill in that regard.

The fish markets are a bit far, and I think most of the cephalopods there will be dead. I was hoping for a live one. :-)

I believe that both cephalopods and gastropods are molluscs. :-)

I'm working on genetically engineering trilobites as housepets - I can loan you a couple of trained cephalopod-finding trilobites once I get 'em properly trained up. ;)

How long do you think this will take? :-) What sort of animal are you going to use as the first host for your trilobite clones?

Dammit, I had a whole reply written up and LJ choked and deleted it, *pout*. Practical upshot: giant deep-sea pillbug-things. They really exist, though I don't remember what they're called.

Minmoths would also work. :)

If your tinkering with ancient extinct creatures, perhaps a micropachycephalosaurus would be better for cephalopod hunting.

the implication that yr couch cushions are moist is doing a number on my imagination.

i was just in Newport, where i met some cephalopods. had i arrived at the right time of day, i would have gotten the chance to be licked by one. how disappointing.

i am so in love with Helium. i want so badly to get a cat and name it Helium- a sphynx cat, a pink one would be perfect.

octupi, apparently, are as smart as cats... maybe we're onto something here. :)

I didn't know cephalopods can lick. I would've been disappointed too.

Have you ever seen Choo-Choo Bear from Something Positive? :-)

Interesting. Octopi are on my list of things I won't eat because they're too smart. Dolphins and monkeys are on that list too.

Also, sadly, my couch isn't moist, but if you'd like to come help with that.... *grin*
