I've always liked those clocks. Maybe I should get one, now that I don't live with my folks anymore.

I love the part about one being sold every 3 minutes for 70 years!

(yes I have always wanted one, don't know why I haven't gotten one yet)

Wonder what will happen when Kit-Cat Clock meets Hello Kitty.

Either I've just divided by zero, or I've brought a new, god-like force (for Good) into being.

It's been a busy week of staring out the window at the snow for Napoleon, Luna, and Sir Robin. Sorry about the bad quality, I only had my camera phone nearby, and I wanted to take this touching moment before Poly and Robin decided it was "tear through the house and break stuff" time.

Those clocks are tackier than pink flamingos on your lawn.

eddyatwork: Those clocks are tackier than pink flamingos on your lawn.

Yes, but like the pink flamingo, they revel in their own tackiness and actually manage, through sheer kitsch adorability, to transcend tacky and enter the realm of 'camp.'

As a three-year-old, I adored pink flamingos. My uncle put one in my parents' yard as a gag and I decided it was my pet. The HOA gave them hell for it, but my Mom wasn't going to kill my 'pet,' so she moved the poor thing inside. Every so often I'd take it outside 'for a walk.' I wouldn't mind owning one now.

May be better than the one I saw about the cat returning home after 14 yrs. Was told my post was "lame". Likely was.
2 Caturday threads at once? Maybe we get to see which one survives.
A friend of my spouse's sent a video as an .mpg, not sure how it'll insert or it it will at all.
Don't know where it came from. Because I don't know where it came from, that makes it Unfetchable.
Maybe some of you have seen this: titled "Bored cat" by at least one forwarder. What one gets is roughly a minute of a snowshoe Siamese riding a Roomba vacuum cleaner. Visualize, please!

congrats and yay.

and a good greenlit it is. the mods seem to have finally decided that "cat gets lots, travels 10000 miles" and cat gets terribly injured but is recovering" are not the only type of threads that work.

thanks mods.

Happy Caturday everyone!

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN LURKING AND NOT POSTING:

take the plunge! post some "blanks" of YOUR kitty and see how fun it is to see your kitty in lights and your family's kitty might get a fun or silly caption of his or her very own! a detailed "how to post pics on Caturday and on fark in general for dummies" page can be found here (new window). once you get the hang of it, posting pics is very easy, but it can seem daunting if you haven't ever done it before. take a look at that web page and it will make sense. there's even a bonus section that shows how easy it is to caption your own pics.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A NEW KITTY THAT NEEDS A NAME:

introduce your new charge(s)! perhaps we can have a naming "contest". post a pic of your kitty and let everyone make suggestions. some of the ones Caturday comes up with are hilarious and often very appropriate. my guy, "LittleOne", recently got his new long name "Jester Lord Fluffy Bottom" (partly mine and partly another lovely farker's - take credit you-know-who!).

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A KITTY WHO IS UNDER THE WEATHER:

please post details and pose questions. Caturday is a lovely place to get help as well as have fun. many of us, having had lots of kitties and having taking care of their lovely and many, many lives and, unfortunately, injuries and illnesses, have become "kitty health resources". post the issues and we'll all see if we can help, and for myself, please feel free to email me (my address can be found in "how to post pics on Caturday and on fark in general for dummies" (new window) or in my profile).

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LOST A KITTY TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE:

for those who have recently lost a kitty, please do let us know. please show us your pics, tell us the story. sharing helps. a wise person once told me "a joy shared is twice a joy, a pain shared is half a pain". tell us of the lovely times of days past when kitty was around. tell us of your heartbreak at losing kitty. it's safe around here; no one will judge. most all of us have been there and will sympathize.

FOR THOSE WHO THE REST OF US DON'T KNOW WELL YET:

there is a fun map that was started by KimJ that shows where various of us Caturdayians are around the globe. to see it and hopefully contribute, go to KimJ's Caturday map (new window)

ALL PETS ARE WELCOME TOO. POST YOUR LOLDOGS IF YOU'VE GOT 'EM!

do you really live with your couch covered in 16 towels all the time?
/not hatin' just askin'


Looking at that picture, I would assume the towels(?) are either to try and protect his couch from cat hair (never works, trusts me) or for their comfort, which is more than likely. For example, a few months ago, I was cleaning out the linen closet and found an old beat up (and kinda ugly) comforter that for some reason, I had washed and kept. I took it out of the laundry bag and tossed it on the floor, intending to throw it away. Dragon promptly claimed it and would not get off. That comforter is still covering my couch, although it matches nothing and looks like crap, Dragon loves it, and that is enough reason for me to keep it. It also helps that I have a habit of eating dinner while sitting on said couch, and I don't really have to worry if if spill something. :o)

HEY GUIZE!!!!!!

Ok, so I finally took the plunge and paid for TF, JUST so that I could say the "towels" all over UNC_Samurai's couch look to me like a t-shirt quilt :)

Yes?

You're right!!! Good catch! Looking back at the pic, you can see where the t-shirt logos are sewn together :) I've never made one... they are a pain in the rear!
 
2010-02-04 08:30:54 PM
It was for a work friend (good lord, do not tell the people you work with you can sew XD) and I charged her all of $50 for it. Double-sided. I'm such a sap! But it was a fun experience, once it all was over.

..I'd post a pic, but I'm also an idiot and forgot to take any. ARGH! XD

SpiderQueenDemon- I love Pink Flamingos too! They are just so tacky and so funny looking they make me smile every time I see one.

Thanks QJ, Spinach Gunk, Sweet Becca, Smuuth, Sherpa 18, Mrs Sanctimonious, Mousiebelle, Monster truck, oddmind, and Debby7813!

Laulaja
- I think I saw that video on Youtube in the middle of one of the funny cat videos. It was so very adorable.

TIDTMC- I agree! I have gotten a little tired of these stories too. Not to say that I am not thrilled when a pet finds it's way home or recovers from an injury. But, a little variety to the stories is nice.
 
2010-02-04 08:55:57 PM
Lol! Quilting isn't cheap - between the cost of fabric and the amount of work put into it, it's quite the expensive addiction :) Now that I'm starting to feel a tad better, it's time to get back to designing kitteh quilts again. I apologize to those who thought I fell off the planet. This cold-ish thing really kicked my butt! Missed a whole week of work and am still struggling to finish out this week, so I was unable to do quilt stuff. Things may be changing very soon with my work situation, so we'll see how that plays into things, but I'll hopefully no longer have to drive an hour one way to work! I haven't found any new pics to post, so here's something from before :)
