I just had to clean up a couple
of cat logs. Our cat has this tendency to hang her ass over the
edge of her litter box and crap right on the floor. She then
studiously digs in the litter forEVER as though she is actually
covering something up. Which she is not, because it's on the
floor, dammit, and spreading its aroma throughout the
house. I even bought one of those goofy litter boxes that has
a lid, so it's like a little Cat Crap Shed or something, thinking
it would corral her dooks - but they still end up on the floor.
Crap Shed is no match for the Floor Dumper.
In addition to the crapping-on-the-floor
thing, our cat has other imperfections. She is fat. I don't mean
Circus Cat Fat, but she is definitely chubby. Or voluptuous,
maybe. We tease her all the time about this.
"Cat? Cat. Cat. Cat. You
are soooo fat, Cat."
"Cat! Hey, Cat! Moooooooo! MOOOOOOO!"
"Cat, you look like a big furry cashew nut."
"A harbor seal."
"A hippo. No, an elephant seal!"
This is considered high entertainment
in MY household.
So right now I am not feeling like the epitome of robust health.
I've been infested. I woke up this morning freezing cold
but with my skin burning up, and now I have this weird chest
thing where if I cough even once it hurts like hell. Plus there's
all this mucus action in my nose. It's a party in my immune system
and everyone's invited!
I can't take any cold medicine
though, because I have a phone interview today. Cold medicine,
even the 'daytime' kind, makes me feel completely spaced out.
I would be apt to trail off in mid sentence and forget why I
was on the phone in the first place. So I have to wait until
later to do those Nyquil shooters. Cause really, I like that

Listen, I am not a complete dick, it's not like I want Joe to die alone surrounded by cats or something. - 12.23.2004
