    Sorry, can't do that from work, that site is "filtered under the category of 'tasteless'"

    :(

    No joy for me today, bummer. I can't go to the South Park site either.

    Taste is rather subjective and open to interpretation, I have always wondered who's job it is at my company to go look at sites and qualify them. The Tasteless Police strike again!

    Tasteless? Good grief! It's a cartoon, and not the least bit racy! Oh, well...Grievous gets beheaded...not to spoil anything...but I mean, really!

    You're welcome! I aim to please! Oh...I need (yes, this is off-topic, sue me) to paste in here my response to something going on in my livejournal, in which a friend posited the question: Is Obi-Wan a dog or a cat person?

    I think Obi-Wan is a dog person, cursed to be a cat person. He wanted a Padawan who could practically read his mind, who was as devoted to the Order as he was, who obeyed easily and happily, and who dedicated his life to service to a higher power.

    And he got a moody, pissy, mercurial, self-centered, passionate, tempermental, sometimes loving, sometimes standoffish prickly CAT of a Padawan.


    So...dog person or cat person? Opinions? (As I hijack the thread...hey, at least it's my own thread!)

    Cute cartoon!

    In terms of personality, I think the above description and reasoning are dead-on! Very good analysis and analogy.

    But... for some reason, when I try to picture Obi-wan with a pet, either cat or dog, I keep coming up with cat. I'm not sure why.

    Well, funny you should ask that...in my storylines, I have that he is pretty much a cat person due to the fact that the Jedi Temples seem to have them running all over the place. (Not sure why, just seems appropriate. Sorta like little unofficial mascots) :D

    So, my vote is for the cats.

    For Jedi, in general, I think cats. But when thinking of Kenobi and Anakin and putting it in terms of having a pet (errr, let's not overanalyze Kenobi having Anakin as a pet...I was not actually working my way toward slashiness...), I see Anakin as cat-like and Kenobi being befudded on a fundamental level about how to deal with that. :)

    And Sid, glad you liked the link. Heh. :)

    ROFLMFJAO!!!!!!![face_laugh]

    Hmmm well Anakin WAS a slave so...no! no! no! Won't go there!!!! [face_whistling]

    Well, I said Obi was a cat person..didn't say that he understood the furry little buggers.[face_thinking] [face_laugh]

    Oy...yes, let's not expand on the slave concept, m'kay? ;)

    And true...one does NOT have to understand cats to be a cat person. I mean, does one EVER REALLY understand cats, no matter how much one loves them?

    I am sad there will be no more movies with Obi-Wan. Just had to say that as a random comment. I don't miss a lot of stuff in the prequel movies, but the development of Obi-Wan as a character...that, I loved. Now it's just books. *sighs*

    The site that I write on gave me the opportunity to expand on Obi-Wan, so I'm having a blast with that...but yeah, gonna miss getting to actually watch that face on film.

    I'm just a pasty white, so I guess I'm not interested...

    (J/K, *chuckles*)

    Hey, you try getting your own lightning in the face and see how YOU look in the morning...
