'Live long and prosper.'

Leonard Nimoy ... er, I have tried for a long time to finish this sentence, or at least to write a verb that doesn't sound full of crap, so ...

'Live long and prosper.'

Sweet wine?

catbox
 Last night, Per and I hosted a dinner for his brother, his brother's wife, and two of their cousins. The cousins' significant others, called kaereste, couldn't come along. 

Per had made lasagna and pecan pie, which were delicious, but which left me with some questions about the histories of those dishes which I'll look for in good time. A question came to mind... Okay, me being me, there were a lot of questions, which I couldn't or wouldn't share with the attendees. But one of these questions had to do with heavy, sweet wine that I'd taken about 2.5 sips of before I just couldn't drink more.

Muscat.

It had nothing to do with mice (mus) or cats (ummm... cats), but the name reminded me of a drink called muscatel, which I only vaguely remember as a super-sweet drink for the lower classes of society. 

At any rate, that meaning whatever alcohol level the wine was, it was truly disgusting to me. Ah well, live and learn.

One other thing learned last night was not (NOT!) to drink coffee after dinner if I'm not prepared to stay up for most o the night.

Cat t-shirts, part deux!

catbox
 Yes, i have t-shirts with cats on.them. Depicted in many colors, styles, and so on. Yes, there is one featuring many,many cats, all over the front of the shirt, which caused me to tell Per, "I have itty bitty kitties on my titties!" And, yeah, I do have an over-simplistic sense of humor sometimes, and that's just the way it is.  

Aaaaaand I forgot to wind.this up how I'd really wanted, so I guess I'll have to do so elsewhere...
What I had really wanted to say on the subject of cat t-shirts was that mine seem to be having kittens. Yes, they are! They get rumpled up in the dryer, then they're folded and put away, but when I open the drawers again, they're either spread out all askew or they're curled up with other t-shirts, and I could swear that I heard them purring! 

The oddests thing of all is that there are more t-shirts than before! Ah well... I need to edit.this on a device other than an iPad!

The weird, weird world

catbox
 a. Yes, there are people on tv who I refer to as 'dipshitttts'. Yes, they're on commercials, specifically on Damnish ones. 

b. Just needed to get this   out of my head.

The ooodd thing today is that there'''s a commercial with     a dipshit mannnnn, who has a smmall pet pig. He keeps it on the sof sitting next to him, cooing over it endlessly.

I don't know what this particular aadvert is for, nor do I rrrreally give a shit.

What I really need to know is why this darned keyboard wants to type so many letters in multippples, like that one there! Ack!

Animal day out

catbox
No, I'm not referring to Animal from the Muppet Show, or to all animals in general... Per and I went out to look at a shop called something like Plant World or something else that doesn't matter because it would be in Damnish anyhow.

We drove up to a large plant shop that had indoor and outdoor plants, things for those plants, pet food, aquarium and terrarium things, fish, a few lizards and a few rodential subspecies. Amongst the mice and guinea pigs there were two degus sleeping cuddled up together in a glass terrarium. I can't remember whether I've ever seen degus before, and now looking online, I'm doubting my memory from just a couple of hours ago, but these degus were almost auburn in color, and their tails were long and straight, puffing out to a plume toward the tip.

At any rate, we did bring a treat home for Moxie: two catnip plants that she became fixated on once we came home. She smelled something rom my scooter's front basket, clawing up to see and smell and taste whatever this bewitching plant could be!

Albino strawberry ... ?!

catbox
In the shower the other day, I noticed that I had small, red blotches on my upper stomach. No, I didn't take photos. Even if I did, I wouldn't post them here. So :-P

Having dealt with all sorts of infections and icky sh!t over the past 6 years, ever since the MonSter entered my life, I thought that I should just put some skin lotion on it and see what happened. (No Hannibal Lechter references here.)

A couple of days went past, and nothing seemed to change. The little red patches looked to me like the seeds on the outside of a strawberry, but the surrounding skin was too pale to be anything but the fruit of an albino strawberry. Ah well, add it to my list of Weird Sh!t and move on.

Last night, I remembered that I'd served as a cattress to Little Miss Moxie, wearing only a t-shirt (me, not her! I'm not one of those people who dress their cats like people!), at which time she kneaded me up, down and sideways before settling in for a nap. Not wanting to blame The Cat for everything, as Per has said that I often do, I either hadn't thought of the kneading-then-nap scenario that I'd dismissed so easily.

Still and all, that was the only possible explanation for the seeds on my skin, and they started disappearing yesterday, so The Cat it was. More than anything, this scenario has taught me that I do tend to blame The Cat when she's not to blame as well as that I shouldn't allow Miss Sticky Paws to nap on me when I'm only wearing a thin layer of cotton.

Ah well, all is well, at least until it isn't.

Nessie's relatives!

catbox
The Loch Ness monster's relatives have been found, although that was back in 1959, so they've probably moved house, but they ought to be easy to find now. </ tongue+cheek>

Yeah, I'm going to label my little bits of sarcasm, just in case anyone might think I really meant any of it.

So, the fossil was found in 1959, and it's just making the news now? Ah well...

Dearcmhara - pronounced 'jark vara' - is Scottish Gaelic for marine lizard, and pays homage to the history of Skye and the Hebrides. The species is one of the few to have ever been given a Gaelic name.

What a name for this creature. That is a mouthful of letters that aren't pronounced that way in English at all. It's even much more of a vomitous mess than Danish. (Yeah, really is. I wasn't being sarcastic with that one. Okay, maybe a tiny, itty-bitty bit, but that's all.)

They've a temper, some of them -- particularly verbs, they're the proudest -- adjectives you can do anything with, but not verbs -- however, I can manage the whole lot of them!

Watching tv

catbox
Yep, I watch more tv than I ever thought I would, but I don't have much else to do. Yes, I do read books and write a little bit, but watching tv seems the best option, especially when I'm the acting matress for a particular cat.
