Real Women Drink Akvavit: lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 500x235]Some of my neighbors are lighting fireworks. Really? On Easter??? Did I miss a memo, or something???Easter bonfires are pretty common in some cultures and the fireworks are probably an extension of that. You got any Scandihoovians around you? They like fire quite a bit from what I've seen. The pre-Christian celebrations of this time of year always seemed to include fire and since Pagans just adopt words and phrases but keep traditions, which are then passed on to their children as "christian", well if you were a REAL Christian (or even just a cultural Christian like most Americans), you'd go burn something down or blow something up for Jesus!/you could do it for fun, too//allegedly[murlocparliament.com image 500x400]
John Buck 41: Hi sherp. Hang in there, buddy. Please send me an updated snail mail address asap, 'k? Sorry, I thought I already did - my PO Box will probably remain open for a little while longer (I'll know more about how long tomorrow)ArmednHammered:
Diocletian's Last Cabbage: I need 3 things for my Friday to be better: ... elephant pics, LOTS of elephant picsI lurve elephants. If I had time, I would find the pics of the one that CDK and MRS. CDK sent me a few years ago, but lacking that, have a pic of the white boy wondering what Easter is all about...
catmandu: My little court jester was at it again. I have a bag that I take to my water aerobics class with my suit, swimming cap, etc. including a net loofa thingy for the shower. Anyway, I got to the shower this afternoon and the big pink loofa was not in the bag. What WAS in the bag was a green sparkly cat toy ball. Didn't work very well as you can see by the size difference. I finally found my loofa under the bed. At least Hector tried to be nice and leave me a substitute.
Deathbymeteor: Diocletian's Last Cabbage: Taking a little time out to add to the previous wishes for the Universe to leave Alien alone. Don't make me get Neil DeGrasse-Tyson and have him and the Cosmos WHUP your ass, Universe!On a similar note, any Canadian regulars or lurkers out there? What do you know about possible government assistance for someone in Alien's perdicament? Can she get into an assisted living facility given the memory problems she suffers due to her many brain surgeries? Are there options for a pro caregiver to visit her periodically to check on her? I'm not sure what her actual situation is (ie: is she not entitled, is she too proud to ask for state aid, etc), but it would be nice if someone or someones could research this and offer options here on Caturday. I remember when I could've used some public assistance between jobs and never got it because I was too proud to ask./Living on ramen noodles and hotdogs for more than two months does funny things to your coronary system!This I think we can make a plan about. I have not the slightest clue what the federal government here does for this type of care, but can certain start to check. I think Alien is one province over from me so their rules are probably different, but there should be information available./but I don't think there's a box for "Kicking cancer's ass for so long and now needs to tell the universe to back off"
Despite what CLTD typed some pgs back, I don't/at least hope I don't "ride herd on" You Lot. You Lot don't need it. Only sometimes know when pix were posted, or one of times, due to dating saves.Sadly have not found Minx in anything I currently hold. May take ransacking Farkives for her(?), & not so sure there's Seek function there. Have 2 newsltrs to complete before May 1, plus transcribe more of new YLHarmonics as able (it sat for week before starting).BTW, did find www.online-image-editor.com, place sherpa18 recommends & I've used to bring .gifs down to working size for here. Have now bookmarked cotton pickin' place so hope to find again more easily.Not using right away, but Soon ...
Hiro-ACiD: It seems the new supremacy-spot in our living room is the speaker:[i.imgur.com image 750x1000][i.imgur.com image 750x1000]I can only assume on top of the TV is next..Oh, hey, resident experts - anyone have experience with those scent-deterrents? Abby is free-jumping up on the kitchen counters now and besides picking her up and gently putting her down on the floor with a "stay dowwwwwn" I'm out of ideas on how to curb the behaviour.. she's in love with the sink and running water.
Mrs CDK: Somewhere in this thread I thought I saw sherpa mention his elephant... Here it is:
OlderGuy: sherpa18: Good to see you here... and as said, better to pack and go.. deal with it later... you don't need any more stress... the yellow brick road (or the black asphalt one) is right ahead, waiting for you...
Went over to my niece's house to Easter dinner today. Her new puppy Maia is getting bigger. As she is growing my niece said even tho she has papers as a purebred cocker spaniel she thinks she may be related to a Dr Suess character.Maia
OK then Dbm, but you certainly may "D'aww" sotto voce. Under your breath aka mumble so as not to be understood, for those who need/wish translation.Remains gorgeous day here in suburban Zinzinnati. Still in mid70s F, scattered clouds, humidity was 23% when Opened Up before lunch. Stripe & Jimmy been trying to climb the window screens. Their sisters Cali, Tiger & Tori don't do that, they're good relatively-little girls.
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 500x499]I got my totally awesome beans going in the crock pot so they can cook for the day. I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit before I head outside for yard work, and stuff.
Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Real Women Drink Akvavit: [blogs.menupages.com image 750x563]Hate to be a wet blanket, I have to mention this.
Deathbymeteor: *yawn* Morning Caturday folks (whomever is up at this wretched hour). Early shifts are no fun, but being able to use the bike to get to and from work means I get to spend just a little bit more time at home (like 45 minutes total) instead of walking to trains, or walking to buses, or walking to work.I think B the 8 legged is sorting herself out, as she usually does. She still keeps a watchful eye on her water dish, but she's also decided to spruce up her foam log house with a new web coating, and a new web mat for when she's laying about. I'm hoping that keeping her water dish filled more often will reinforce the idea of "This is for wets, not webs", but we shall see.Happy Easter to all, and to all, good noms.
Real Women Drink Akvavit: Hai! *frantic waving* I had my medicines adjusted and one changed on Purrsday and I am having the interesting dreams. I have done the sleepwalking before, too. My ex used a belt from one of my robes to tether one of my ankles to his so it would wake him up if I started wandering off in my sleep. The obstacle course arrangement did not work on me, because I navigated through it perfectly. Then I'd start baking or cooking dinner - in my sleep. We were afraid I'd burn the house down, not leave it. I don't know why I started sleepwalking in the first place, but I also seem to have stopped. I haven't done that in years even with the medications.
lilyspad: John Buck 41: I'm sorry. I have very conflicting feelings about this holidayDidn't one of your kittehs "get lost" on Easter week? If I recall correctly.....a few years back?
Simba chillin' in front of the pellet stove.
I'm on page two, so I'll never see this before the thread ends. But I'll share anyway.
Ft of pg13, only few fro TempThreadsEnd, but pg13 appears to have been Lucky. No new losses, yay.
Spiralmonkey: This is also for RWDA, a blast from the past but one I still find funny: Viking kitties

SeikaArashi: When I hop on computer I'll go back and read the thread. Mobile can be a pain. @.@Got some sad news to report. My almost 18 year old cat, Mallow, passed away on Monday. I'm still pretty torn about it, not only because I have lost my child that's been with me since I was 10, but also because I felt like I killed him. :(I had given all of the cats a bath on Sunday but Mallow acted pretty weird after his... As far as I know he seemed fine before I gave him a bath (but now I think about it... Last Saturday I gave him the option to go outside for a bit (with my supervision of course) and he didn't budge from his resting spot... Which should've struck me as odd there) but he still ate his wet food just fine. The more the night went on, the more lethargic he seemed to get. I pretty much had him glued to my side the entire night before I put him downstairs on a blanket (that way he had easier access to the litter box). Woke up the next morning and he was at his place at the bottom of the steps where he waits for me to wake up, but... He was gone. :( I was torn. Everyone had told me I didn't kill him but it feels like I did...Today's my birthday too (28 woo) but its hard to celebrate it when the thought of Mallow gone is still in my mind.
Hai all! I'll try to catch up later, but meanwhile I'm currently sorting and trying to reduce the amount of Christmas stuff I have, and something hit me - wasn't there someone here who had a thing for singing stuffed animals? If so, PLEASE get in touch with me - I have hit the motherload (so far: a frog, a cow, a reindeer, a moose, and a duck - I already tossed the singing pointsetta). Also, if one of you could cross post this to the Caturday FB crew it would be greatly appreciated. Hope to bbl.....
lilyspad: Snuffybud: I know he doesn't object to being squeezed!Then please give him a big one from me! :D
Debby7813: Real Women Drink Akvavit: lilyspad: Real Women Drink Akvavit: These were not quiet farts, either. They were human sounding type farts.OMG!!!! That is hilarious! :DI loved that cat. He was AWESOME in his own "ewwww.... Junior!" kinda way.[i.chzbgr.com image 500x500]/my mom is out running recon on that fauxscue right now//I told her not to come back without pie for tomorrow, so hit the grocery next door///notice I did not ask for a cat, even though I really wanted one and Gogh needs a friendIs it possible that Junior ate too fast, and swallowed a lot of air?
lilyspad: Snuffybud..I need a Desi fix!! Hope everyone is having a good week!
lilyspad: [i.imgur.com image 500x375]Whar is RWDA??? Lady, you better not be really sick again!!!! That will merit a spanking! :D
