Friday Funny - Holy Email

One day God was looking down at Earth and saw all of the rascally behavior that was going on. So he called one of His angels and sent the angel to Earth for a time.

When he returned, he told God, 'Yes, it is bad on Earth ; 95% are misbehaving and only 5% are not.

God thought for a moment and said, 'Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.'

So God called another angel and sent him to Earth for a time.

When the angel returned he went to God and said, 'Yes, it's true. The Earth is in decline ; 95% are misbehaving, but 5% are being good.'

God was not pleased. So He decided to e-mail the 5% that were good, because he wanted to encourage them, and give them a little something to help them keep going..

Do you know what the e-mail said?

Okay, I was just wondering, because I didn't get one either.



Crazy Cat Lady

When I was in high school, my civics teacher told us to write a paper about why we supported the Democrat party, the Republican party or the Green party. I decided that I didn't fully support any of them, so I made up my own party with its own stance on important issues.

While he greatly appreciated the creativity, he laughed and talked about how I would be 'that' crazy cat lady down the road with a million cats in my big house.

I didn't mind. I like cats and the thought of owning my own home.

I never thought I would be a pet blogger of any degree, even though The Bloke and I have always planned on getting a dog.

The Asimov came into our lives.

At nearly ten weeks old, Asimov has brought us so much happiness and so many smiles, it's hard not to blog about him. He's well and truly a member of our family who has raised our spirits.

A friend of mine told me that it has been scientifically proven that owning a cat can improve your mood. I'm finally experiencing that. There have been some things in my life recently that have made me feel down, but those times always seem to be the same times that Asimov crawls up on my lap for a cuddle.

Whether you are a cat person or a dog person (I seem to be both), having a pet is an amazing experience. It's amazing how fast you become a 'parent', loving your pet unconditionally. They develop a personality quickly, and it's fun to get to know them. They love you unconditionally as well, and that is something beautiful.

I think I have needed this for a long time, and I'm so glad I get to have this experience.

Not even close to politically correct... He makes fun of everyone, so don't watch if you don't like racial jokes.


Time for Gasbagging

(For my non-Oz friends: ) In Australia, when someone says you've been gasbagging, you're most likely a woman who has been talking a lot with another woman. This post? This is going to be a gasbagging post - at least on my part.

Firstly, I didn't expect to have no internet connection at the new place for as long as I was. We got a severe runaround from our ISP, but we eventually got our connection up and running. Of course, I had to get my desk built and my desktop hooked up after that.

All boring details that are taken care of now.

The new place is lovely. We're not completely unpacked, but we're already heaps more relaxed than we were in the old place. No police cars, no screaming matches and no being paranoid about leaving the place for fear of windows being broken into.

Just to add to the chaos, we've added a new member to our family:

This is Asimov, our eight week old male kitten of no particular breed. He's very playful and loves cuddles. He'd always rather sleep in someone's arms rather than in his comfy bed. Unlike all cats I've known in the past, he is very vocal. He'll let you know how he's feeling - especially when he's wanting some attention.

Asimov is the first pet who is truly mine and is the Bloke's and my first pet as a couple. The Bloke isn't a cat guy, but Asimov has even made a place in his heart.

I have found the scale and stepped on it, but I'm not going to utter the numbers. Besides, I've somehow acquired a stomach virus that will certainly influence my weight anyway. Until the unpacking is done and we're truly settled in, I'm going to just look after my health and deal with the other stuff later.

Having moved AND gotten a kitten, the Bloke and I are feeling good about going through with the things we say we are going to do. The next steps will be things like planting some veggies and herbs, exercising consistently and going out less.

Things are looking good...



Happy Easter


Moving to the New Place'll be quiet for a while here. I should be back to regular, non-pre-scheduled posting next week.
