@hfrazey I will do this with you. I think a series of planners (to do lists, schedules, etc) for GenXers that are 100% nostalgia will make gobs of cash.

Ben had to take Nocturne to the vet today and apparently Nocturne *really* didn’t want to go because he took a swipe at Ben and now my husband looks like he has gills.

@stelepami why is the process of folding clothes so I surmountable? It frustrates me ever so.

@Chelseaknits me, after a long silence: I mean, that’s what Vegas is known for, right? Their trained raccoon shows? Or is that Saskatoon? I always get them confused.

<— I like imagining how I could help people transform the awkward into something else into their days

@Chelseaknits me, leaping to their table: Did any have trained raccoons? [puts chin in hands and elbows on table and leans forward like an eager child watching cartoons]

@lawremipsum I've been sick and Warren looks at me with sheer disgust when I sneeze or cough when he's lounging on me. Sometimes he walks away from me with this look like, "I can't believe you picked that virus over me."

Sometimes a fragment of a song gets stuck in my head for weeks at a time. This is quite often followed by a minor, usually calming epiphany.

The latest example: "Je garde ma colère / pour de meilleurs batailles. / Le vent qui te travaille / me gâche."

Which is: I'm keeping my anger / for better battles / The wind that works for you / ruins me.

Time for the humidifier. The cats are sparking.

I came into work and now I'm all, like, "My cats aren't here. This is bullshit." So I'm going home now.

(Also, I'm still pretty sick with this cold-flu thingy.)

Sometimes I arrange things specifically so Warren feels like he's getting away with something naughty. It's fun for both of us.

I looked up in time to see Warren retreating quickly into the bedroom. He was carrying an envelope of cat treats in his mouth—label out, like a good spokeskitten. He was moving swiftly with his tail (or nub, rather) happily straight up and his body language was all, like, "Oh boy oh boy oh boy..." IT WAS ADORABLE.

I still took the treats away from him, though.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive and Neighbors for More Neighbors.
