Stolen from Infinitepink...

Aw, darn, the animation doesn't work. So much for animated gift theft.

OK, here's another one, sent to me by a friend in Florida...

And then I notice that not only does it not animate, but the bottle says 2005.

Oh, well. Must have been a good year.

Happy New Year, kids!

Oh, and there's always this... (thanks, Uno)

Orange kitty

An orange kitty has been meowing outside my door for the past 12 hours, on and off.

I put out a bowl of food for him.

Kill me now? What is this, a Christmas present?

Does he know I feed strays? Where did he come from? Is he my neighbour's orange cat? Why is he locked out? Where did they go? Isn't it good that it's only 1 degree C outside?

Kleenex guaranteed

More disclosure

ROM would like me to disclose (remind?!) you that I'm an alcoholic and that every deed I've done has been tainted by meanness and that every word I write is to be taken with a grain of salt. Indeed, I must admit I've lived a life without a single redeeming virtue, without a single good turn, without a single act of kindness. But most certainly with a flask in my hip pocket every day, oh, yes. Drunk every step of the way.

She got her money and now she's holding my stuff hostage.

The question begs to be asked: who is the meaner of the two?

Business baron to prison bitch

Our local news stations are all agog about the sentence of Lord Conrad Black, former media magnate, just sentenced to 6 years for fraud with Hollinger Inc.

I can't help but wonder why Martha Stewart got such a light sentence for her insider trading (five months, and wasn't it served at home or something?).

The higher they stand, the harder they fall? Black and Stewart were among the wealthiest people on the planet.

Both of them bilked people, but it seems the sentences are weird, but what do I know.

Another view here.

La teigne and my eyebrows

"They" say I look like Edith Piaf.

Not sure about the eyebrows...

Or the hair

Or the cheekbones

Or the jawline

Or the neck

Or the airbrushing...

But otherwise, yeah! I see the resemblance!

Thanks for the vote of weird confidence, Vic!

On another note... I am afraid my cats have ringworm. (That is La Teigne in French)

I've checked for fleas... they've all been scratching a lot... but no fleas. I know how to find those little fuckers, believe me. Aint' no fleas there, but ringworm is a fungi, and oh ow eww ick YUCK I've been through it before and I DON'T WANT IT AGAIN!

Halp! Vet. $$$$$

Mindy wins!

Mindy wins a to-be-determined prize for the Don Johnson lookalike question.

I must think of something completely unique to send her. *note to self: shop tomorrow.*

This is not an easy feat, because Mindy is co-owner of Regalo Boutique. I can't tell you how much I love that place; some of the best decorative items I've ever owned, I bought from them. So finding her something different is going to be a task.

(Plus, they have a great Fall-Winter sale on NOW. Go! Go, I say!)

New Facebook picture

Any of youse who don't have Facebook yet, well, you don't know what kind of fun you're missing.

I think my new short bangs make me look impish... but only from that angle, of course.

That is all.

Who is? contest

I think Jeni had an idea when she suggested I stage a contest...

After I post this, I'll see if enough people comment to warrant a real-life prize. First person to come close wins.

Who is this man, and who does he resemble, to you?*

*meaning, your best interpretation. You see how open this contest is?

More separated at birth guys

A couple posts back I said David Usher looks quite like Keanu Reeves.

Who is this dude, and who else does he resemble, to you?

Mindy says Scott Baio. She's close... if you keep in mind my proviso of "to you".

Did my Xmas tree

I cannot seem to take proper photos of anything that involves lights, so I can't show you my humble Christmas tree in its real prettiness.

She stands just about 4 feet tall, I'm guessing, and is pretty cute and quite laden with ornaments. The exercise of mounting and decorating it just seems... a little useless considering a) it's not a real tree b) it won't have any presents underneath.

What a waste of time and effort it feels to be, on some level. The exercise cheers me yet makes me melancholy; how weird is that?

Not to mention that the lower half lights stopped working and I had to add a whole nuther set, but still the top half has more twinkling white lights.
