Warning, I fav and maybe boost every. single. cat. I see.

My wife, whomst I do dearly love, nevertheless tests that love pretty much daily by filling every single available horizontal surface with... stuff.

My cats, whomst I also dearly love, nevertheless test that love pretty much daily lately by pushing everything *off* pretty much every horizontal surface, in their quests for The Perfect Nap Spot. Now, they only do it in my room so far (victims: phone, Kobo, car keys/fob, wallet, sunglasses case, alarm clock I never use anyway, bottle of Tums, but not so far my bedside lamp).

Life's tough.

When I was about 5 or 6, I was allowed to watch one hour of TV on Saturdays. Naturally, I chose to spend it watching cartoons. One day, I realised that I wasn't very interested in ads and so I'd go to the bathroom, read, whatever, during them. I presented my case to my parents: for my one hour of TV time, there was about 15 or 20 minutes of ads I didn't watch, so could I please get another half hour (since an extra 15-20 minutes would itself include some ads).

Sadly, while my parents appreciated the audacity and reasoning, I did not get my extra TV time.

Let me know if anyone wants a Linux build!

This week I have discovered maybe why some people seem to idle unnecessarily. Our Escape shuts everything off after a couple of minutes when the key is on ACC to save battery. No radio for me while I wait for my wife, unless I feel like running a biggish 4 cyl gas engine. :(

He likes to settle down there in the evening while I’m reading and watch me, then he puts his head down and his eyes blink for longer and longer. He’ll have some new place in a week or two but it’s nice pretending he cares for me for now.

George likes finding new places to sleep. Last week he discovered the top of my dresser, he runs in from the hall, onto my bed, bedside table, then leaps about three feet up and three feet across to the dresser top. I cleared everything off because he kept nearly knocking it over or pushing it off when he stretches out.

Tonight, he failed to clear a fan, or he misjudged the leap or something, and he fell abjectly to the floor, knocking the fan over . While he sat there pretending that didn’t just happen (despite Mason staring at him) I picked him up and put him where he’d been jumping for and gave him some pats. Poor boy needs his dignity.
