Your OTHER right! Aleister can tell fortunes about as well as any other charlatan. Possibly better, in fact, given that Paige is a Pisces and likes the fact that he has all the subtlety of a brick.

Today, Cosmo the Quote Bunny is quoting Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. It's actually the correct version of a common misquote attributed to Shakespeare: "It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves".

The actual quote is a bit more nuanced, and once more I'll be doling out homework points, this time for discussing the differences in meaning between the correct and incorrect versions of the quote. Short essays of 100-200 words are preferred, write as if it's for a website.

Interesting, Paige is a seal... that would explain a lot. Not to mention why it is important that she pick up tuna.

What could possibly be explained by Paige being a seal?

I wish I'd owned a cat so philosophically and subtlety educated. Instead they just lick their lips staring at my food meowing and growling when the next bite doesn't go to them.

I wouldn't know the significance of selkie's and other unseelie critters since I couldn't be bothered to look left or right when a construction worker crossed my path. I naturally assume she needs the tuna to keep her coat healthy, soft, and shiney before she goes clubbing.

Her Celtic astrology sign would indicate her totem animal is either a Snake or a Seal. I favor he latter, only because I think seals are cute. Still, I'm aware snakes have their own charm. I suppose it's a throwback to Eve in the garden of eden.

Huh.. Explains the looks on my own cats faces when I got out of bed NOT ready to go shopping.

Now I need to go buy tuna.

For the curious For those who are wondering, yes, yes I did get tuna for the cats on my way home from work. But not for Cosmo the Quote Bunny. He got a lovely bit of his favourite veggie as a treat - gem lettuce. 'Cause you know, he's fancy.

@TheCatMolloy: 1. how is the finger?
@NtKPaige: 3. Tuna for the kitty? not bacon?
@TheCatMolloy: 2. My dog is a fortune teller... however her predictions are getting old.... "Today you will love me"... "You will get up off that pillow on legs and let me run outside"..."If I stay cute like this long enough, I'd get a free massage"

Finger is recovering, thanks for asking! Putting pressure on it still feels weird but it doesn't really hurt any more and my typing is no longer impeded at all.

I hope you know that thanks to you I wound up purchasing cthulu fluxx.

Fluxx is a fun game, I haven't played the Cthulu version though.
