The guy was trying to get something off the floor and sat up just in time to see his car smash into mine. I'm fine, my car, however, is pretty crunched up.

The important thing is that you are ok. Your vehicle can be replaced, you can't be.
What would become of Juno without you there to interpret?

SecretAgentWoman: This is Milo. He has a tooth flosser fetish. I have an annoying space between a couple of back molars that gets food jammed every time I eat. So, I've got these things stashed in the bathroom, by my computer, on my nightstand, etc. And Milo steals them and hoards them. I clean out underneath the diningroom table every so often about a half a dozen of these things at least. Weirdest cat (well, except the one that likes to lick walls).

Bet imgur about to bring out the giraffe graphic they do when massively overloaded, or else it's summat I'm doing wrong. Have right now neither the strength nor patience to try tinypic again (used regularly Ago til Unwished Features began appearing) nor especially the all-in-one outlined on pg 1 that Sickapie managed to persuade to work for her.
Read some more & turn in, after offering mere verbal CongaCats to State of Maine for being such good place to be or care for cats. Do plan to GoodSearch for other 2 states with Official State Cat!

Yikes! That IS an awful sight; I'm glad you're okay. I got rear-ended while stopped a LONG time ago, but I still get that awful sinking feeling in my gut if I see someone coming up behind me too quickly!

lilyspad: OHNOES!!!!!! Are you sure you're okay? GAH!!!!


Yeah, I'm sure I'm fine, but my car has a gaping hole in the back bumper. I'm not quite sure how an SUV bumper matched up perfectly with my Civic's bumper, but my tail lights weren't even broken. His insurance has taken responsibility, so they'll pay to get it fixed and I'll get a rental. It's just annoying and time consuming. This is the fifth accident I have been in and in everyone of them I was rear ended, so I'm getting to be a pro at this. The good thing about being rear ended is there's no question as to who was responsible. I just wish people would stop using my bumper to stop their car.

He kind of looked like this.

I bet. I am surprised you do not have whip lash. Fairly common in rear end accidents. Take care of yourself, and do not ignore a stiff neck..or other sore spots. Take good care of yourself..you belong to me! As teh song says....

If the last round is any indication, Panda will mostly be aloof, for the first while, and warm up and let the kittens cuddle for naps just before they need to go back.  She was even surrogate nursing near the end last time.  Jack will likely be a problem, he loved having some new little tumble buddies last time but he's pretty much full grown size wise, but still kitten at heart... and probably going to be too rough...

You know what makes great shots?  Coconut rum and pineapple jell-o.  Mmmmm-MMM!  I usually make a few dozen when we do smudge parties in the summer.  They're especially good with some of these:

Oh wow - I had pleurisy the first two times I got pneumonia.  It was hell, because I was still coughing like a harbor seal.

Poor thing. <pat on head>  Feel better.

That's what I figured happened here. Caught pneumonia over Christmas and never complete shook it. Think I'd rather deal with the pneumonia....

Sickapie: Got an email last night from the superintendent of my daughter's school reminding parents to dress our kids appropriately during this cold weather.  Really?  I was going to send her today wearing her favorite gymnastics leotard, but thanks for the heads up, Captain Obvious.  Honestly.

[dl.dropboxusercontent.com image 202x249]


My nephew is a teacher in Downeast Maine. They've had a bit more snow that we have had here and used up their allotment of 'snow days'. His school doesn't get out til 6/20, as opposed to the original end date of 6/6. Not to get all 'when I was a boy' but yeah, back in the day we needed a freakin' blizzard to cancel school.

A generation of snowflakes (no pun intended) is being raised. I fear for our future (and not just for this reason).

Pneumonia is bad, yes, but at least it doesn't feel like someone is stabbing you with a ice pick every time you breathe in. Or out.  Or try not to breathe.  And Cthulhu forbid you should cough.

professional_vampire: Evening, all! Thank Ceiling Cat for Caturday! I worked in my least favorite office (of the 12 I float between) today and the computers were down for the first 4.5 hours. Grrr. Plus I haven't been feeling all that great the past couple of days - nothing serious, just feeling "off". Glad Caturday is here to see me through. Good to see everyone!


I sympathize, PV.  That "off" feeling seems to be going around here, too.  Last weekend folks everywhere seemed all cheerful and sociable.  Maybe due to the January thaw or something.  But this week has been dreadful.  Just dumping myself out of bed in the mornings has been excruciatingly hard.

I actually worked in my favorite office today - HOME - and got lots done in between my first few posts this evening and now.  This is good 'cause now I won't have to work long at the other office tomorrow.

Amazing how Caturday can motivate the soul. ^..^

spinach gunk: John Buck 41: Buck Manor is doing its part here in midcoast Maine. Here's (from L to R) Ripley and Jasper. And no, they don't care for each other. Of the 2, Jasper is more likely to snuggle with me. They both like Mrs. Bucks lap. Not at the same time however.

Good to see our man in Maine is here representing!

How about going to help a friend jump-start her car, on I-75, in 5° weather with wind chill below 0°, and having a f'ing snowplow come up behind you at 40-50mph! He pulled up the plow blade and dodged around us at the last minute, but we were freaked out!
