Smoking Cat….

It’s not funny and at the same time it is funny. Let me say it this way….I can laugh because the only thing hurt is is pride. My little buddy came over today for dinner, she had a really bad day at work. The cat who never pays her any mind jumped on the table and stuck his face in hers. Then he proceeded to walk across the table (I don’t like it when he is on the table) and sits down in front of me. He was just sitting there staring at me when my little buddy says “Um your cat is on fire?” I jumped up and grabbed him and patted down his side. I never saw the flame, I can’t find the spot where he was flaming, and he is walking around like nothing happened, but holy crap did it smell bad.  If he was hurt it would be a tragic story, thankfully it was a “did that really just happen?” story.

The second thing the girl did when she walked into the house was inspect the cat. The first thing she did was say “WHAT is that? Are you looking to invite more ghosts into the house? If that bunny turns all Monty Python, it’s all on you!”  I don’t know what she is talking about….it’s a sweet picture. The minute I saw it I knew it was mine and the best part? It was only $3.50. It’s called Child with Rabbit by Johnson and it’s now hanging in my kitchen over the table.

I am not a huge fan of oak frames but it does go well with the picture. I think I will buy some black Rub n Buff and antique it up a bit but that’s it. I did have to put a proper hanger on it, I think it is adorable. Not haunted at all.

I went to the ReStore in search of a stool to make a cat project. I did not find a basic three legged stool but I did find this sweet piece of art, which I have never seen before. I framed a lot of art in the seven years I worked in custom framing and never once did I see this piece. I also found a piece of Corning Wear with a design that was new to me. It doesn’t have a lid but that’s okay. It was $1.50….you can’t go wrong there.

I am trying really hard to not add to my “stuff” but sometimes I can’t help myself.

Have you ever heard the term toner bandit? There are people aka criminals who call businesses and try and get numbers off of their copy machines. They are not new and I know one when I hear one. This is how it played out yesterday…. The phone rang and I answered and he said “Hi this is Jason and I service your copy machine, I forgot to write the number down. Could you please read it to me?” In my most sarcastic voice I said “sure thing toner bandit.” and I hung up the phone. Force of Nature Girl looked at me and said “did you just hang up on them?” I said “heck ya, it was a toner bandit.” She had never heard that phrase before and wouldn’t you know that little creep called back. I wouldn’t answer it so Force of Nature Girl did and he said something she couldn’t understand and then followed it with “you piece of shit!” When did they get so aggressive? We live in a crazy world.

Do you remember before the holiday when I had the doctor look at my eye because I thought I had an “itis”? It has been happening on and off for a few weeks now so I had the OD look at it yesterday. It’s fine she said, maybe a little allergy just use some warm compresses. Allergy to what? When I woke up this morning with extremely puffy eyes I said “this is ridiculous! What is wrong with me?” In talking with the girls at work we figured it out. Do you remember how I said that I have been on the couch more in the last few weeks than I have been all year? It has been so cold that all I want to do is snuggle up under a blanket and hibernate…..on the couch…..where the dog lives all day long. I’m allergic to the freakin dog.

This is the beginning of my nap last night where she is laying on the inside of my knee.

I woke up with her in my armpit….

That’s one way to keep me from napping on the couch…..It’s been quite a day…..puffy eyes….haunted picture….flaming cat….I think it’s time for bed……Zia
