scotto monkeypulse

9313 - Tuesday

I still feel pretty-lousy, but went in to work - too much needs to be hands-on today - meetings, etc.

My shoulder muscles and ribs / stomach are all especially tender from the coughing. I'm being extra lazy with my entries until I feel more up to speed.

BHK made pizza tonight... I had two slices of green pepper and cheese. First real food eaten since Sunday. It was delicous, but I couldn't consume more than that... or any pie for fear of retribution.

I can't imagine a homemade blueberry pie lasting a week in my house. I must've been terribly sick, indeed.

Cut and paste links ahoy!

Three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame have gone to the dogs, so why can't Cheeta the chimp get some love? The animal actor, whose credits include the 1967 comedy "Dr. Doolittle" and the "Tarzan" movies, is trying for the seventh time to get a sidewalk star and become the first monkey to get the honor. His handlers have launched an online petition to get supporters to urge the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to give him a star in 2009.

The 76-year-old chimp, who the Guinness World Records has called the oldest living, non-human primate, is retired and lives in Palm Springs. Cheeta also has a MySpace page. (see also - http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/GoCheeta/ )

As the Amtrak spokesperson is explaining that there is no policy against photography, a guard comes up and tries to stop them from filming, saying it is against the rules.
