Cookies Question

I've got a question about the cookie authentication.

I see that I send the cookie to livejournal, but I'm a bit confused about how I get the cookie in the first place.
What command do I send to the lj server to have it send the cookie to the client?

Getting Memories list from client software?

I'm considering ways to embed my LJ entries into a bigger personal website, listed by topic (Memories keyword). Basically I'd be looking at the LJ entries as a simple content repository, with my website acting as a client to that. I'm only concerned with public entries at the moment, not requiring authentication.

But - there doesn't appear to be a Memories api in the protocol document. It shows that I could access the friend list, and add a new entry or bring up an existing one by date, but getting the list of Memories doesn't appear to be a listed feature. I'd like to bring up a list of existing entries based on finding them in the Memories list, and then allow the user to choose them to view.

Am I out of luck (memories client api's are not provided), or am I just looking in the wrong place?
