Friday Quote & Cat Blogging

This week’s quote is from the wildly delirious Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas:

There he goes – one of God’s own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s cats…

Once again, the shadowy and mysterious Codename F.

Unfortunately, she continues to decline. She’s lost about half her body weight (she was small – 6 lbs. – to begin with), and Codename V. fears that she may have gone blind. She also recently took what appeared to be a farewell tour of her favorite places in the house, as if saying goodbye. Including a slow and laborious climb down to the basement.

I’m sick about it, and V. is worse. F. is a very special kitty, and she’s just a shell of herself now.

It’s All About Meme

Lizzy at Night Bird’s Fountain has tagged me with a surprisingly difficult meme: My Five Weird Habits. This should theoretically be easy, what with me being kinda peculiar and all. But truth to tell, I have a hard time thinking of any habits, much less weird ones. I actually had to resort to asking other people, in the hopes that they might have some perspective on the matter.

Anyway, here’s what I ended up with:

1. As documented earlier, I must have Dr Pepper after every softball game or batting practice.

2. I end all of my e-mails with some variation of “These _____ are making me thirsty.”

3. While I successfully broke the habit of biting my nails as a child, I replaced it with what can best be described as “peeling” my nails.

4. I always lock my car door after getting out, even if I’m in the middle of nowhere and will only be away from the car for a minute.

5. I can’t pass a clump of clovers without slowing down to look for four-leaved ones (often successfully).

And now for the fun part: I shall pass the meme baton along to the shadowy and mysterious Codename V, NTodd, watertiger, Thersites, and Philalethes, in hopes that they can do better…
