all i ask of dying is to go naturally

Via a locked entry on my flist, Teahouse fox love, including cultural context of which I had previously been entirely ignorant. And here's an explanation of what exactly is going on in the 3:14 am Easter Egg.

I had assumed the fox was a kitsune, which I now see was incorrect, and I missed evidence to the contrary that I should have recognized (such as his/her tai chi habit).

Personally, I am curious as to whether anybody's found a late-night interstitial scene for the iGoogle fox, because as you may have noticed, when she/he goes to bed, he/she leaves an offering of oranges and incense, and by pre-dawn, the offering has vanished.
