freebies & dealies: a weblog dedicated to sniffing out offers of free goodies on the net. Not only does she tell you where to find stuff, she logs the stuff she got in the mail that day. Free worms, anyone?

Muscled, black with steel-green eye

Muscled, black with steel-green eye
swishing through the rye grass
with thoughts of mouse-and-apple pie.
Tail balancing at half-mast.
…And the mouse police never sleeps

of purest feline ancestry.
Look out, little furry folk!
He’s the all-night working cat.
Eats but one in every ten
leaves the others on the mat.

There’s an interesting conversation going on in one of my cheesemaking mail lists about “cheese skippers”. These little guys lead to “crawling cheese”.

I’ll spare you the details… just know that sometimes it takes something larger than a bacterium to make a cheese come out right.

Lisa: You like musicals don’t you dad?
Homer: No, I don’t, I think they’re bad. They’re fake and phony and totally wrong.
Bart: Wake up dad, you’re singing a song.

Since I’ve already mentioned lyrics, here’s The Simpsons Song Lyrics Archive. They’ve got them all. Even the one-liners.
