I'm not a crazy cat lady because I like to party
Cats are weird:
Tasks that require a cat-free space bother my "attention-whore" year-old cat to the extent that he feels compelled to do the most adorable, purring "kitty-flop" right in the middle of whatever I am working on. Whether he gets right in the middle of laundry sorting, putting together a puzzle (see picture), lays on the keyboard causing random windows to pop up, or joins me "helpfully" at the side of my plate of food waiting for handouts......it's a bit frustrating even though it is adorable.
I like to get out of the house and volunteer, hang with friends, study,work, whatever, so if I am a crazy cat lady, I'm in denial!
Random thing of the day: superhero powers. One girl said hers would be 3D vision in an ice-breaker for a class last night. Now, I completely stole this bit of snark from I-don't-know-where, but.....the world IS in 3D. What exactly was she wishing for?
By the way, I couldn't think of a truly awesome superpower, so I said I'd like the dexterity of a cat. Thinking about this further, my cats weigh about 10 pounds each and can jump about 5 feet with a soft landing (although it doesn't make the downstairs neighbor happy.) Extending the math, I would technically be able to safely jump 70 feet. You have to admit that's pretty cool, albeit a bit useless unless I were trying to get somewhere more quickly.
Non-cat things: Follow-up on the last entry--I finished "Disappearing Acts" by Terri McMillan and bought her recent book, "Getting to Happy" at a Borders 'going-out-of-business' sale. I am going to miss that store. I liked it so much more than Barnes and Noble.
Comment and tell me random things. Over and out.
