The bloodshed was surprisingly copious (partially due to my aspirin regimen causing my blood to thin). Anyway, it took a while for it slow down enough for me to leave the house.

I'm not trying to punish him. I just want to see if he might show a different attitude. If he comes up to me and bumps head or lays on my chest or snuggles up next to me, I'll be happy.

I'm not holding my breath.


What in the hell did you say to him?LOL

Two.

Brownie and Cowcat.



Cowcat was my sister's cat.

Did a 400+ mile round trip to go retrieve her from my sister's in laws up in Trenton.

That's the one in Florida, btw.

Well, it looks like Cowcat adjusted...to you and to Brownie. Glad to see it.

Minutes ago, Rocco jumped up onto the coach next to me and snuggled up against my leg. All is forgiven. I still might deny him treats as he's overweight. Then again, who am I to judge?

My sister and her now deceased husband gave Cowcat her name because her coloring looks like that of a cow.

Now, she's gotten so fat, she's come full bovine circle.

I've been calling her Cannonball lately because when I'm in my chair and she comes barrelling out of nowhere, launching herself up onto me to use my upper body as a shortcut to her favorite snoozing spot, it's like getting hit with a furry, 20 lb. cannonball.

I assume, anyway.

Just about knocks the breath out of me.

And of course, the claws are usually out just to make sure she gets a good grip.

One of my cats a few days ago got very excited while on my lap, and scratched my leg with his claws. It's getting healed up, but both have done that a few times.

I wouldn't say it really pisses me off, but I'm getting a little tired of hearing the word "hack", as in trick, shortcut, tip.

I guess it'll last a few years and then go away.

I was surprised the other day to hear "nothingburger". I thought that left a few years ago.

You see those stupid "life hacks" videos on social media a lot.

IDK about Twitter or Instagram, but Facebook's News Feed has them constantly.

First of all, most of the "hacks" are just bullsh*t and waste more time and effort than they save.

Worse yet is the hideous "music" they're always set to. Some kind of Japanese techno-pop crap or something.

There's this other phenomenon that has cropped up, which are videos where people, usually a young woman with voices of other people off camera, start out by claiming they found a cool trick to solve some issue via some super easy and highly improbable means.

Often involving the use of duct tape. 🙄

Then they proceed to fiddle-fart around, dragging it out as long as possible while just totally wasting tons of whatever material they're using, and gabbing endlessly on and on about what they're going to do next, without actually doing it, etc., etc.

Basically they are the video version of those click-bait "slideshow" articles where you have to keep clicking the arrow to take you to the next picture/page while they digress about a lot of side sh*t and drag it out forever.

If the internet and social media has done anything, it has shown us how screwed up people are becoming.

Yeah, the latest was a news segment this AM. Household hacks. I think I'm supposed to throw some aluminum foil into the laundry or the dryer or the dishwasher or something for one reason or another.

And yeah, those clickbait articles. I'm a sucker for the historical pics. I think the last was "Hygiene of the Old West", and the bait pic was of some 1800s floozy playing pool with the back of her clothing split open to allow her to take a dump wherever and whenever. I think that's what it was. Never got that far. ðŸĪŠ

Well, I guess when you have to sh*t in a hole dug into the ground below a little wooden hut, you want to make the whole thing as quick and easy as possible.

Plus, it is my understanding that women wore several layers of skirts back then, so taking them all off every time they had to take a dump would have made it a perilous proposition in terms of shatting in one's garments.

Yeah, the BO was probably so commonplace, it was no longer even noticable.

I had never considered that before until I read a Ken Follet novel called Timeline in which a group of scientists travelled back to the middle ages to rescue some friends who'd gotten sucked into a wormhole in the fabric of spacetime.

As they walked through the crowded streets of some medieval town, the first thing they noticed was the stench.

Being woken up at quarter after 5 on Sunday morning by the telephone ringing and there's nobody on the other end when you get up and answer it.

That's awful. Probably a sales call or something.
