Come home, Snoopy, come home!

Augh! The Snoopy Place, at Plaza Singapura, is closed. There's no explanation given at the restaurant site, just that management suspended operations. No idea what's to be done with the place.

I hope they'll find new management or sell it, and re-open, since I liked the place, and planned to read Li'l Beginnings there. Plus, while the store lacked books and video/DVDs, they had neat other trinkets -- coin banks, comic strip wrapping paper, notebooks -- and I wanted more of that ``Collective Item For Peanuts 50th Anniversary'' video CD run of The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show. Also while I got rcoony the Peanuts Beatles music CD -- grownups and synthesizers weakly pretending to be kids and children's instruments (like kazoos) playing classics like ``Blackbird'' -- I don't have a copy for myself, nor did I have the other music CDs built on that premise.

Rats.

Also when I got home I knocked over my Imperialism II CD-ROM, breaking the jewel case. I can't play the game -- it's not Carbon-safe and crashes at the end of each turn -- but I wanted it anyway in case I ever got up a Mac I could dedicate to OS 9.0.4 (the last version which ran it). Bleah.
