How Smart Are My Siamese: A Case Study

It is often said that Siamese cats are among the more intelligent cat breeds.  Nevertheless, as sweet and wonderful as Rosie and Carmelita can be, they don’t always seem like the brightest kitties in the world.  I don’t know about you, but repeatedly getting on my kitchen counter and stealing bits of rubbish straight from the trash can doesn’t exactly scream “intelligence!”  It wasn’t so very long ago, however, that Carmelita surprised me with a rare display of cunning.  Or maybe it was just my imagination… Continue reading How Smart Are My Siamese: A Case Study

Celebrate Halloween with Some Gluten-Free Brains!

October is almost upon us, and though Halloween may be just a day, we’ve got a whole month to celebrate the spookiest time of the year!  How am I celebrating October?  Why, I’ve switched to my super cool Haunted Mansion ringtone.  Thanks for asking!  Now getting lots of mysterious calls from strangers is fun!

This is also the time of year I can finally enjoy the silly zombie shirt I designed for SpreadShirt!  If any of you are interested, you can find it on the SpreadShirt Marketplace right here , starting at $15.49! Food allergies can be scary, but at least brains are gluten-free!

This shirt design is zombie-approved

Really Bad Jokes

This is a pretty old post that’s been lying around on my computer for many, many months, so I thought I’d just get it published so I don’t have to look at the ugly thing anymore. It lists a few cruddy jokes I came up with, most of which are several versions of the exact same thing because I’m ridiculous like that. It’s really bad, but here it is….

Merry Halloween

Good day, everyone, and I hope you had a holly jolly Halloween, even if this post is rather late for it. I don’t typically do a lot for this spookiest of holidays (plus, the costumes I have double as masquerade costumes and are handmade and take a good hour or two to put on, which isn’t really worth it, plus I might get stains, and then I might have to buy more body makeup, and…), but this year, I was really feeling in a Halloweeny mood. With the intention of having a scrumptious goose for Christmas, all Charles Dickens-like, and a delicious bass (or some other kind of large fish) for Thanksgiving (A fish for Thanksgiving? Blasphemy!), I thought I’d go all out with this trio of holidays and do something special for Halloween, as well. Continue reading Merry Halloween

Kitten Rentals

I have a really stupid idea for a business. It’s one I wish existed, but it’s still…really stupid. The idea is, well, you see…kitten rentals. That’s right, kitten rentals. Have you ever thought to yourself, I really want to snuggle with a great, big pile of kittens, without the commitment of purchasing copious amounts of the cottony felines? Well, I have. I have thought about this a lot, about as much as I obsess over my next visit to the bakery, which is also a lot, and there are times I have this overwhelming urge to just scoop up a zillion, large-headed, mewing kittens and snuggle with them. But, I see no practical way of doing this, aside from befriending someone in possession of a large number of kittens, whom you can use for a time for their kitteny goodness, and then fake your death once the kittens grow up and you have no need of their services anymore.
