the rasta kitty
now this is a NONthrilled looking cat. they call me mellow yellow. idee fixe \ee-day-FEEKS\, noun: an idea that dominates the mind; a fixed idea; an obsession. the reality of obsession -- its incessant return to the same few themes, scenarios and questions; its meticulous examination and re-examination of banal minutiae for hidden meanings that simply aren't there; the cancerous way an idee fixe usurps other, more interesting thoughts -- is that it is confining, not rebellious, and not fascinating but maddeningly dull. -- laura miller, "the streetwalkers of san francisco", new york times. just a new word for the day.
