Cat 101

leave a comment »

cat 101All feline-inclined creatures in this household take note: This is a proper manner in which a cat true to his species may sleep.

Not stretched out like someone has you on the rack. Not belly up to the sky like roadkill. Not in any of those doglike positions your fur feels like plopping down in, your legs all helter skelter, your tail flying off wherever.

This cozy curled-up pose is acceptable. Or sitting up with your paws tucked in front.

This is your final warning. Kitty demerits and other pet penalties will be meted out for further offenses.

Chicken Soup for the Stale

leave a comment »

Yes stale. When I’m feeling fine, I can stay in one corner of my room for days without so much as a blink. But catch me a cold, and I catch cabin fever faster than my nightstand can clutter itself up with my orange juice and soup bowls and all. So my bed’s stale, this room’s gone stale, and it’s all rubbing off on me.

That’s my version of a cold remedy there: Campbell’s canned cream of chicken soup with a can of whole milk; shredded cheese; two generous soup spoons of sour cream; a can of V8 juice; plenty of pepper and a dash of salt. Yum.

Settling down to let it recuperate me to freshness while I watch Lance Armstrong cycle his way down under.

down under thunder

leave a comment »


‘down under thunder’ was what crossed my mind to characterize th session we were planning when our counterparts showed up here instead of teleconferencing from their own place

you were working on a design of my initials that i could use as a logo for my spreadsheet and other productions

i was to describe and discuss th field where our brightly colored vehicles had turned, where armies of people carrying banners had become like th arrows indicating wind forces on a hurricane map
