Item-1  Oyster and Dem Ersters: On Saturday I asked Oyster how he liked his ersters cooked: he seems to like them any which way but loose. (Hmm that sounds suspiciously like the movie where Clint Eastwood co-starred with an Orangutan before he became an auteur; Clint not the Orang.) Buried in the entry is an explanation of why he adopted the nom de blog of Oyster which features an obscure reference to former Jethro Tull keyboard player David Palmer who had a sex change operation in 2004 and is now known as Dee. And I thought I was the only Debrisville blogger who was ever likely to make a Dee/David Palmer reference. I *am* impressed Oyster. Can a Myron/Myra Breckinridge reference contest be far off? Girls will be boys and boys will be girls…

Item-2  Toy Story: I’ve been wanting an iPod for some time and finally bought one today. It’s a brand spanking new black 60GB one that plays videos and stores picture too. Dr. A is baffled as to why anyone would store pictures on an iPod and she probably has a point. Dr. A wanted to be certain that the Prius would be iPod compatible. I reminded her that Apple was the industry leader in MP3 players. We longtime Mac people are used to being part of a persecuted and disdained minority after all. Jeez now I sound like Crazy Kim…

Care to hear my rationalization for buying the iPod at this point? It’s a doozy. The late lamented Jetta had a 6 disc CD changer which made road trips easier; especially when Oscar the cat was in the backseat singing “Stray Cat Blues.”  (Like Mr. Jagger he *is* a strange stray cat. ) The Prius doesn’t have a changer but it does have MP3 player capability hence the iPod. I simply want to make travel easier on all concerned especially if we have to evacuate the cats again: Oscar gets on Pogo’s nerves and music soothes the savage Oscar and calms the agitated Pogo. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it…

Item-3  The NOLA Criminal Docket: Two great local street names were bandied about by the local press this week. First there’s a arrest warrant out for a suspected murderer known as Be Stupid. This piece of human flotsam’s real name is Ivory Harris and he’s accused of killing someone 6 blocks from Adrastos World HQ. Oops I mean alleged piece of human flotsam. He’s also wanted for murder in Houston. Be Stupid is definitely the sort of Ivory that should be endangered if you know what I mean. He should be withdrawn from the market and clapped in the pokey post haste.

Then there’s gangsta rapper Corey Miller who is known as C Murder. He was convicted of murder by a Jefferson Parish jury in 2003 but his conviction was reversed by the Louisiana Supremes. I wonder if he changed his stage name to C Petty Thief or C Loiterer?

Item-4  Crazy Kim Update: There’s none today but there will be tomorrow. Sorry about that y’all. Covering Crazy Kim is hard work and I had to take a day off. End of Crazy Kim teaser as well as this post.
