I occasionally get the question "So what do you want for your birthday?"

Honestly, I've fallen in the habit of not getting anything for friends. Many of my friends feel a little put upon when you give them something. I don't -- and I'm only too happy to give gifts -- but that tendency has turned into a pretty good assumption for my social group, oddly. It occasionally dovetails with less-than-stellar financial realities, which is nice too 8)

Anyway. On that list of things for my birthday -- a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle.

Seriously.

a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle. I know a place in Seattle that might have those. Hmmm ...

It's times like this that I wish I didn't look at that IP, instantly translate it to a UCSC IP address, and have all the mystery of who might be getting me a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle removed.

It wasn't me. I don't know where to find a rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle. I do, however, know where you can get space travel supplies in Seattle. The store's slogan is "If We Don't Have It, You Don't Need It."

I could tell it wasn't you by your IP. Besides, you don't have access to UC Santa Cruz computers to the best of my knowledge.

I wish the website had more info, but I adore that store. The bit at the bottom reminds me of a pepper grind my grandparents have which said "Manufactured in Chicago, Illinois of the United States of America on the third planet from the sun".

I always did like that. I'm living for the day that I can tell people that and have their address not include the bit about the third planet from the sun.

I don't think they actually make those. I know that, at least some years after the first Monkey Island game, the LucasArts offices had one that they had made themselves. I saw a picture in an interview, though I don't remember who with and wouldn't really know how to look for it.
