The Librarian

Alas

Followed a tasty lead suggested by padawan_helena, who was kind enough to tell me that she & her hubby had found dark M&Ms in the Star Wars section at Toys R Us during their recent U.S. visit. Had to return a DVD to the library tonight, which meant driving past the local shop, so popped in to take a look. No luck ... not even a Star Wars section (other than a tiny segment of the action figures department), let alone a trace of the dark goodies. So the pressure is back on soon-to-be hosts hadesgirl and mjpg to make sure that they have 'em in stock in August. :d
The Librarian

FAR too weird!

Y'know how you can recall snatches of song heard when you were a child (well, I can, anyway), but haven't a CLUE what the actual song was/is. One of the ones that has always vaguely tickled my mind was something Cajun (I have a fondness for modern Cajun-folkore songs, like Jim Stafford's "Swamp Witch") ... all I've ever had was a vague sense of tune (useless to somebody who can't really sing or hum on-key) and the recollection that there was something about an alligator biting someone's hand off.

Just finished watching that old TV program that I cobbled together on the computer last night, and in the last segment, THEY PLAYED THE SONG! So now, armed with the knowledge that it's called "Amos Moses", I can track down the artist and, hopefully, a CD. :-)
