Pet The Tummy


You know you want to.

Captive Hammer


I found my hammer! I wasn’t even really looking for it, but I found it.

It’s beside the dryer where I can’t reach it. Yay?

What I was looking for was Simon, who jumped down beside the washing machine and then got stuck.

He’s not exactly the brightest candle on life’s birthday cake.

He managed to turn around but he couldn’t jump back up on top of the washer. The washer and dryer are in a closet and it was a pretty tight fit. I had to wiggle the washer out of the way a little bit so he get out.

It looked like the closet was giving birth to a cat.

Extreme Close-Up!


Fearless has really thick fur – really, really thick fur. It’s hard to tell in most pictures since it tends to stick together and form a solid surface, but when she sits in certain ways her fur separates into big chunks.

This is her knee-ish area.


That teapot is frickin’ cute.

I Have Mail!


Very large mail, in the form of the new futon I ordered off of Amazon. The one that is currently on my couch is very thin and uncomfortable, so I decided to spend a bit of my tax refund on a new one.

The “box” which is more like a cardboard tortilla stuffed too full.

I had to cut the side of the box to get it off, it just wouldn’t budge. The innards looked like a tamale.

Or possibly a bale of hay.

Fearless was thrilled that I had brought her a pre-chewed box.

What’s the point of destroying a box that’s already destroyed?

There was an outer plastic bag that I had to cut off before reaching the inner layer. I cut a tiny hole and there was this hissing noise, like when you open a brick of coffee. The damned thing puffed up like a marshmallow in the microwave.

I have no idea how it fit in that box. I suspect the TARDIS was involved.

I found a piece of paper while collecting the plastic wrappings that explained what that hissing sound was.

Does this mean I have to burp the lid every time I change the cover?

It’s been a few hours already and I don’t see how the thing can get much bigger. I really hope I don’t wake up one morning to fine my living room full of futon.

I Miss My Doctor


The other weekend MD and I were driving to the local home improvement store to pick up some lumber that will one day be my new kitchen cabinets. MD mentioned that since she had custody of the remote one night, she and flipped over and watched her very first episode of Doctor Who in :mumblety: years. I guess after hearing me blather on about it, she got curious. I asked her which episode she had seen and she started describing it as “something to do with Wi-Fi” and I instantly began talking over her.

“NO! That’s from the new season and I haven’t seen it yet! Don’t tell me what happens!”

When I moved I made the decision to not get satellite or cable TV and just stick to Internet and Netflix since I really didn’t watch that much “real” TV anyway. The only thing I’ve really missed is the new episodes of DW. I could buy them from Amazon or iTunes, but I think I will try to resist until they come out on streaming Netflix in a few months. :eyetwitch: I’m sure I can make it.

Must Have It


It’s a bit of a “thing” for all the sarcastic smartasses of the Internet (which is pretty much everyone on the ‘net) to leave extremely … creative reviews for ordinary or utterly useless items. Like this banana slicer. Reading them makes me really want to buy one.

Get It?


What Every Office Needs


This and an indelible ink pad.

Fifteen dollars (plus three for shipping) seems like a small price to pay.

Mercury Hourglass


I think this is kind of neat in theory, but the end product is underwhelming. Instead of a steady drip, it goes in fits and starts with dribbles and bubbles. Still, interesting idea.
