So I wandered off to brave the grocery store earlier (I needed litter and cat food for the lord and master) and while I usually try to avoid Sunday afternoons, it was absolutely insane with everyone stocking up before it snows (which it is now, but it's supposed to be all rain tomorrow).Anyway, I get to my car and some woman shoves her cart in my direction, and jumps in her van and starts to pull out - I'm waving her down and she gives me the finger and screams fark you! I just wanted to tell her that she forgot a bag on the bottom of her cart. Which I then appropriated. And contained this:

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 515x443]On the back page of our ad this week from work, there is a door mat showing a couple of pairs of boots sitting on it. The photo clearly states "floor mat", and below that...."items on mat not included". Guess how many people have come in wanting to buy the boots in our ad!!!!! Really, guess..... sigh. People are betarded.Count me as one of them.I read that as "...a couple of pairs of boobs sitting on it." and I thought well, duh! Everbuddy loves boobies.On the plus side, I looked up my Un Insur account on NYS Labor Dept website and saw my UI finally got approved. Now all I need is the darned card to arrive in the mail so I can draw on it!And so...(strums snarkily on yule-ka-lay-lee)PROBLEM SOLVED!THE PROBLEM IS SOLVED!WE SOLVED THE PROBLEM!TAX FREELOADING IS AWESUM!PROBLEM SOLVED!/Here's to me finding a damn job sometime soon so I WON'T be freeloading! (sigh)
tigerose: timelady: laulaja:catlike typist who maya been on pg 7 & timelady on 8, pleased to see you both manifest yourselves. tl, you'd hoot wildly at recent US Midwestern developments from recent weather. Not only did Great Swath get 3-5" (8-13cm) of snow yesterday, but also Thick Glare Ice. No one living S of 45 degrees N, say Minneapolis-St Paul MN, can drive in or on any of that.Wow. I worry about burning myself on the steering wheel and grumbling about how long air cone takes to cool down the car. I've also been known to whinge about cold weather when it is 14C (A VERY cold winters day!). I don't know if my electric wheelchair comes with snow tyres either;)Ok, now that is a great visual....snow tires on a wheel chair..it would need a plow though..make it convertable to a canopy/rain shelter? :)

captain feedback: Real Women Drink Akvavit: captain feedback: lilyspad:That's a beautiful cat!I think I just love everything about Disneyland and always will. California Adventure is cool (they have beer!), but Disneyland has a special place in my heart.I'm betting Disney does something for their ferals. I can't imagine them not taking some kind of care. I'll have to try and look it up, when my Google-fu isn't so tired.our small family has been head over heels anew since the 50th. annual passholders etc.this visit was bittersweet as we've decided to leave cali.this article implies the management knows and approves of their clowderhttp://fountainvalley.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/meet-the-feral-cats -o f-disneyland-4cd0da6d[i.imgur.com image 512x640]

Real Women Drink Akvavit: tigerose: RWDA do you haz ideas for cookie shipping? Thinking of sending a care package or two... Yup. The best and lightest cushioning EVER invented by the gods themselves is plain popcorn....
quantum_jellyroll: lilyspad: Make it burn..... in a nice way. :DScrew that. Make it burn like that time she and those five Mexican sailors... well, you know.
tigerose: sherpa18: Put the tree up tonight. You aren't sleeping anyhow...and, its so damn pretty. Even without " orneryments" as my grampa used to say...he also used to call cheese/ crackers and the like " horse ovaries".. And I will never get that out of mah head! :)
tigerose: RWDA do you haz ideas for cookie shipping? Thinking of sending a care package or two...
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 480x640]Nice sign.... :D
tigerose: Since it is Christmas cooke season, I must tell you about Punkin, who was my furry companion many yrs ago..orange/cream/black tortie tabby Coonie....She. Loved. Cookies. I would bake em, put em out to cool, she would be up on the table stealing them. While they were hot from the oven! You absolutely could not leave the cookies to rest/ cool before frosting/ decorating, until the cat was barred from the room. Only cat I knew who had a sweet tooth! I do miss her this time of year.
Salem Witch: sherpa18: OK Sherpa, you and I were laid off on the same day last year, maybe our synchronicity will strike again. I just got a state job today. Your next.
ArmednHammered: sherpa18: You should take a picture of the cheesecake now and make a flyer to put in the store: To the lady who flipped me off in the parking lot, thanks for the effing cheesecake, it was really effing good!
Real Women Drink Akvavit: Make sure there are fingerprints on it. Sticky, crumby, cheesecake-encrusted fingerprints.
tigerose: sherpa18 so, it's snowing and you are sharing cheese cake wif teh Dragon? Cool.
sherpa18: Followup: I have discovered that I have to add cheesecake to the list of foods that the white boy will kill for. :o)/ this is a very accurate rendition of my attempting to eat a piece of the cheesecake that was so graciously donated to me by a kind and loving individual:[i415.photobucket.com image 300x310]/ yes, of couse i shared
gremlin1: sherpa18: I have to stand in the middle of the kitchen or go outside if I want to eat strawberries.
cynicalminion: it's days like today that make me want a ghostbuster-style backpack flamethrower to clear a path on the sidewalks...
sherpa18: Salem Witch: sherpa18: final score: nasty biatch 0, sherpa 1 Karma. Tasty, yummy, delicious Karma.Hey, what goes around comes around./ tips hat to the nasty biatch for the free cheesecake[i415.photobucket.com image 333x400]

Jasper only if I grab one of his paws.
sherpa18: final score: nasty biatch 0, sherpa 1
Meanwhile, since Caturday has spoken, I am leaning toward putting up the damn tree. If for no other reason than to keep the white boy happy. Well, then again, what better reason could I have? (yes, you could say that i am pussy-whipped) :o)
OlderGuy: Sherpa.. good score!
John Buck 41: sherpa18 for the WIN!
Real Women Drink Akvavit: sherpa18: Don't forget to share!
akimbotoo: sherpa18: final score: nasty biatch 0, sherpa 1 Ha! Great for you!
professional_vampire: sherpa18: And for everyone dealing with the cold, stay warm! (only 29° here, but snowing heavily, ice and sleet to follow)It's barely snowing here, but I hear that the snow is coming up from the south so we should be getting what you're getting soon. I don't mind the snow, but the ice can stay far away - especially since I've got to drive in it to your town for work tomorrow.

gremlin1: a direct shot to the kitchen off the end of the bench
Real Women Drink Akvavit: gremlin1: electrickittehbed.jpgHeh. The Gogh Beastie has claimed my electric throw. I keep it over an old ATX case (waiting for guts, it is) under my desk so when I need it, it's right there. Well, now that it is Gogh's electric throw, he gets quite upset if I don't have it at least on the warmest setting at all times. He will sit on it and then realize it is NOT WARMSIES, MOM!!! and start pulling at leg. If I don't turn it on quickly enough for his liking, he'll add in some claw. If I still don't turn it on, he'll bite me. A couple bites later, that throw will either be turned on or I'll have a cat staring at me from under my desk with his teeth stuck in my leg. The brat seems to be unaware that he's a Norwegian Forest Cat - a breed well suited for incredibly foul weather - and that this is California.I should get him one of these, so I don't have to share my throw with someone so rude as to bite me[i01.i.aliimg.com image 500x500]
catmandu: Welcome!!!! Keep posting away. Caturday goes on until Monday night/Tuesday morning. Looking forward to pictures of your overlords.
lilyspad: "items on mat not included".
yobbery: Real Women Drink Akvavit: Damn straight! I had an elderly auntie who went sky diving for her 90th birthday (tandem jump). She always wanted to do it, but she grew up in an era where ladies simply did not do such things. When she got older - PAR-TAY!!! She made up for what she felt was lost time, with the full support of her entire family. She also once told me that she'd personally kick my ass if I ever quit doing things I did just for the sheer joy of them just because others did not approve - and I totally believed her. I miss her so much. She was an awesome lady.Sounds like an awesome lady![www.smugmug.com image 357x268]/I often lack self control :o)
DO NOT WANT Poster Girl: I assume the vet checked his liver enzymes? My rottie had that kind of cycle until her thyroid was checked and found her liver was not working right...prob a result of the heartworm treatment she had as a puppy....and then had to give her supporting medication called Denosyl.Certain foods like organ meat and cheese would compromise her liver function and make her sick...Denosyl alleviated that but even then certain foods especially with high fats would set it off.
lilyspad: Salem Witch: Shakes: [you_shall_not_pass.gif]BAHAHAHAHAHAH!Mr. Witch just showed me this. I had no idea that Suzy had so many disguises. I see this every day.That was hilarious!!!! OMG...the poor goggies!! :D
Salem Witch: I still undecided about decorating for Christmas this year.
timelady: Long time lurker,always on the tail end of Caturday. Much happiness found every Caturday, you guys have got me through a LONG semester of teaching AND study AND increased issues with spine (which should mean I do neither study or work, but meh).I will try and post pics of Larry The Wonder dog (not original, but it suits him), our super intelligent Jack Russell, who helps me mark my student assignments my squirming onto one arm, flopping onto his back, an sighing with bliss. How to resist? He always knows when I am in pain (severe chronic pain due to car accident acquired spinal injury), and loves rides in my manual wheelchair. The electric - well, still thinking about it, but the kids can walk him alongside it happily. Or he walks them, hard to tell.Getting pics of Briony Dark Empress of All Worlds is harder. She does not like being caught being affectionate or comfortable, prefers long suffering hard life pretence.Off to play ukulele and practice the mandolin before playing taxi to one of the horde of five (offspring). The Bloke (tm) is away for a couple of days - well deserved, he is building a sundial out of old server racks, he is like that. For example, we have 17 tractors. He LIKES tractors. He likes lots of things. An interesting man!Here in Australia I view your winter news with bemusement. Never snows where I am, and it is 32C today - a mild summer day. Gets to 45C for a few weeks at a time at height of summer. The pets that own us and the kidlets love air cone then! SO do I;) The Bloke just never notices, oddball he is;)/ off to music land:)
Snow? Snow Leopard is ready.

The Ice Queen: djrudiak: What exactly is an "...impatient rehab facility..." ?Basically a nursing home with additional perks. Instead of having to transport them off site for physical, speech, and occupational therapy, they have the facilities on site to do it.

tigerose: My right eye as decided that it wants to be cranky. By which I mean itchy,red, feels like I have a marble in my eye...it hurts to blink. I am less than amused. I am going to see the doc tomorrow.
spinach gunk: yobbery: spinach gunk: [spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 597x768]How's Buddy?He's actually having not a bad week! Appetite is very good and he's taking all his meds! I just don't get how he can be OK some days and at death's door a week later, and back. The vet can't explain it, and doesn't know what else to do (other than trying to keep him comfortable, of course). So we can't figure it out, but we know he could go at any time, so we just treasure these good days of a happy comfy Buddy at our sides, and leave it at that! Can't think about anything else and don't want to. He sends contented tail wags to everyone.He's lost a little bit of weight recently, so he gets cold more easily, but on the plus side, his nice soft winter coat fits him very nicely now! Which is good because it's getting well below freezing here. But not so good because he absolutely hates wearing clothes and mommy *makes* him wear this when it's this cold. He forgets about it and seems to enjoy himself more once we're outside, but eeew he can't get it off soon enough when we return![spinachgunk.smugmug.com image 800x600]Blankies are where it's at. Coats? Pffft.
sherpa18: And I just want to take a second to thank everyone once again for making our little project a success for the third year in a row ... you guise rock!
*** CATURDAY HOLIDAY CARD UPDATE ***
lilyspad: sherpa18: lilyspad: JeezLouise it's cold!!!!!! We have a strong wind here today...makes it that much worse...[ihassnowpic] Do you really??? I hate snow. Well, I like to LOOK at it in the distance, but not drive around in it, or shovel it.
Bathia_Mapes: tigerose: Good Meowning! Happy Friday. We got some precip last night, but it doesn't look bad so far. I think I will penguin walk in the parking lot...( insert penguinwalk.jpeg here).We've got snow in my area, which is rare, especially this early. Roughly 3 inches on the ground so far and it's still coming down pretty steadily.
