LJ interest surfing

okay, anyone who knows me even vaguely probably knows my habit of LJ "Interest" surfing: seeing what the most obscure things are that are shared as interests by at least 2 people. right now, I have 75 interests listed, and only 4 are unshared: 5.25 inch diskettes (unsurprising), bachelor pad music (prolly some variant on "space age bachelor pad music" might hit), black velvet paintings (sorta surprising, but I'll deal), and Gene Pitney. What the fuck? of the 200,000 + LJ users out there, -no one- has any props for the man that gave us "Town without pity" and "24 hours from Tulsa"?? that's fucked up, frankly. Gene Pitney is, to quote Phibes , my boyfriend. I just can't fathom that Quasi has 136 matches, Liquid Sky has 24 matches, and Gene only has me.

I am shocked and saddened. I mean it.

broken link, so sue me...

Okay, so I can't include that picture in last week's entry because the site hosting it doesn't like external links that might allow you to bypass their pop up ads. And my photopage doesn't use the URL formats that LJ wants.

so, to see my freakshow kittens, go to
http://photos.yahoo.com/lara7seven

look in "kitties, new adoptees" folders, and the first pic is the Siamese kittens.

Of course, having to go through all that ruins the joke, but whatever. It'd be interesting if they really were conjoined twins, but I'm guessing that's even rarer in non-humans, and that they don't tend to survive very long if they do manage to be born.

also, will entertain suggestions for names. one's a boy, one's a girl, and they're siblings. And they only respond to commands in Hungarian.
