It essentially means pretty busy and hard to catch. Much like the phrase "One legged man in an arse-kicking contest".

Lar Jorgan & QJ-

Ok, now I get to confess my favorite phrase from my not so dearly but definitely departed dad:

Slicker than snot on a glass door knob

Oh, and anything Monty Python is also a favorite.
 
2010-04-24 9:47:02 PM  
Oh yeah, I was also going to ask if QJ could photoshop a Hello Kitty eye patch on SHG's Hayley? Sorry, but that was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw her adorable picture.

i believe that the context he was using was that he has been in and out all day, wound up, or just over excited?

Well, 'flighty' or 'busy' might be a good definition.

Now that the weather is good in Illinois, I can only post in a hit-or-miss style. Like a fart in a skillet.

Really, I don't have a good definition.

Here's a cat picture:

A few Caturdays ago I posted my cousin's cat Bubbles who liked to bite ankles if he wasn't getting enough attention. She had to go to the Emergency Clinic today because he bit her so hard that it has gotten badly infected. They gave her a shot and some antibiotics to take orally. Then they drew a circle around it so if it got worse she could tell and get to the hospital immediately.

I don't remember who did this caption, but it is certainly prophetic.

I'll leave it to the philosophers of Caturday to determine what 'Fart in a Skillet' means.

Mrs. Jorgen is calling again.

17.1"? Meh. When I was a kid we had a long-hair Tabby that was 18" at the shoulder and measured 3' from nose to tail. His face was 6" wide. He also weighed about 18#.

So I finally get TF (thank you super-nice sponsor!), and I can't figure out how to find the Caturday thread early. Had to work all day today, so I missed the whole thread. Oh well, I should be able to figure it out by next Saturday. :) In the meantime, here's some random pictures of my kitties

No new Abbey pictures, but she has a new thing - she has finally taken to wearing her harness and tag full time. Last night she went out for an evening walk on her leash (sounds strange, but I figure it's safer than letting her run about unchecked, in case of squirrel, bird, neighbor's cat or coyote). She walked down to the street, back up between our house and the neighbor's, down to the creek, about 50 yards along the creek, back up the bank and back to the front door.

Tonight, after a day of staying under the office futon due to guests, she came down demanding pets and noms. She got so wrapped up in the petting and scritches that she disregarded the sounds of noms being prepared - until the kid brought her dish out and she ate out of it while I held it. Then, she settled in to watch "Dances with Smurfs".

To the tune of "O, Christmas Tree"

O lutefisk, O lutefisk,
How fragrant your aroma!

O lutefisk, O lutefisk,
You put me in a coma.

You smell so strong! You look like glue.
You taste just like an overshoe.
But lutefisk, come Christmas Day,
I guess I'll eat you anyway.

/also had Nordic ancestors.
//Never ate lutefisk
///I've had Haggis, though.

As cool looking as Savannah Cats are, I don't think they are a good idea. If one breeds with the local cat population you've just introduced a new predator into the environment, one that's a lot bigger and less tame than a traditional house cat.
