Daylight savings means the cat's up earlier than usual, annoyingly begging to be fed his breakfast. I tried to pretend to be asleep but that just made it worse somehow. I think that cat has extrasensory perception that allows him to know when I'm faking him out. If it wasn't happening to me I'd think that was the cutest most clever cat trick ever, but it is so the trick loses a bit of it's luster with each passing morning.

But coffee - strong and dark - makes it all better and I tickle his belly before leaving for work.

Once at work I notice the ravages of the weekend. My ground-floor office window is a sheet of sparkly cracks. The shattered safety glass making it seem as though there was an ice storm. It's all very pretty, though nowhere as impressive as when the twenty foot tall window in my old office suffered a drill bit and came crashing down like a curtain of diamonds.

So that's two office windows in two years. I hope that nobody thinks I'm bad juju and gets me relocated to a windowless bunker somewhere.


And on matters unrelated to everything, here's why I never catch anything when I go fishing. I'm obviously doing it wrong.


She shoots, SHE SCORES!!

Is this your kitty? :)


And what happened to the window? Weather? Idiot with a rock?

LOL! Yes! That's the culprit, Officer!

As for the window, there was impact so I'm thinking it was either a stone kicked up by a passing car or an idiot with a rock. There is roadwork nearby as well as bars so really, both options are as possible as the other.
... in a handbasket

You have stumbled across Catfish Noodling.

And yeah, what's with the window? Just storms?

Talking about dangerous, I caught squid with my bare hands once. It was in the frozen food section at the back of the grocery store. I dropped the bag and nearly bumped my head on the shelf when I tried to stop it from hitting the floor. ;-)

Oh, and on the fishing - it's called "noodling" and is one of those classic American stupid-but-apparently-fun things to do. Even made it on Dirty Jobs.

Now there's a sport that must get more of it's share of BRI's. (Beer Related Injuries)

Wiki says it's real big in Nigeria, too. How long until a World Series is organised, I wonder?

I'm having the same problems with my cat (see icon). The other cat just does her own thing but Crookshanks will climb on us, purr loudly, breath hard, etc. to get us up if his bowl is even a nibble short!

Heehee! It sounds to me like Crookshanks is the "Designated Annoyer" for the household.
