Not advice from cats. Advice from people. With cats. Livvy was spayed today. šŸ™ She was a good girl at the vet clinic, but she’s feeling pretty lousy tonight. My question concerns this– the vet informed me that they could find no ovaries or uterus with Livvy. The vet made a longer incision than usual […]

I saw this really neat meme over at Subjective Soup, and thought I’d do it. Don’t you just love how I butt in on memes? 1. Have you ever been on TV? Yes, a few times. When I was a drama student in Manhattan, there was a cattle call for actors who wanted to answer […]

And I thought I’d seen everything. It must be really tough to find that perfect match. Actually, it no doubt is. In the “olden days,” young people relied on childhood friends, schoolmates, family friends, and church to find one’s spouse. Life is way, way too hectic today. And unfortunately, fewer people are relying on parental […]

Ugggghhhh! Just heard the weather report for the weekend, and sub-zero temperatures are on the way AGAIN. We just suffered two weeks of them!! Wah!

I never read magazines like Time or Newsweek anymore, so seeing what they print was quite the eye-opener (and the brain-closer). Good heavens, are journalists THAT dunced?! It was the most ridiculous drivel I’ve ever read. I […]
