1. The Human finally removed the bright red Christmas wreath from our door, and replaced it with this autumnal one, which was a Christmas present. There must be some sort of meaning in this, don't you think?
2. Thirty years ago the Human attended an art auction where she purchased this painting for what was to her an outrageous price. Still, it has hung in all her classrooms and offices ever since. But she never allowed herself to go to an art auction again!
3. Wow--look at that moon! Taken from the corner of our street coming home from the moobies on Caturday. She *should* have been home with me.
4. Okay, pay attention now cause this is impawtant! The dark red area of each map shows "exceptional" drought. The map on the left is from January 2016. The dark red covered more than 70% of the state. The middle one is from January 3 of this year, when the dark red area had shrunk to 18%. The final map is from January 10, 2017. The dark red now covers barely more than 2% of the state! So what's the "sorta kitty" part? If you look carefully, you can see the magnets at the lower center of each map are kitty butts! Ha ha meow!
Can you even believe Spitty the Kitty has positioned himself voluntarily in this nice new box and even let it CLOSE on him? No, me neither! In fact, I am pretending not to be enjoying it at all, all up in here where it's warm and dark and cozy, and where the Human placed a tiny towel just for me. Nope. None of this is happening at.all.
In other news, it did finally stop raining yesterday, and the Human was so impressed she took some pictures with her phone on the way home because she thought it was pretty cool how the sky still looked kinda dark while the sun was sort of out, and well, never mind because the phone's camera isn't all that great, but the Human went to all the trouble of emailing them to herself and cropping them and she was darn sure gonna use them anyway. You know, I can respect that.
I've about had it with the Human's shenanigans with work and other stuff --and none of it *my* stuff either. It's an outrage, really, is what it is. On the plus side, she was home a lot this weekend reading essays and paying more attentions to me than usual. In fact, I grew rather weary of her. It rained a lot. And apparently, it's going to rain a lot more. I guess we are having six years' worth of rain in about five days. So the Phasers are lit up just in case they're needed. I do not anticipate actually firing them though. At least not tonight.
Okay, so this picture is from a couple of weeks ago. Before The Colds took up permanent residence in my city. You are seeing it because all I have been doing lately is curling up sweetly next to the Warm Machine. I mean, of course I do other stuff, but the Human is all distracted by "work"and every time she thinks of photo-taking, I am already slumbering in front of the W.M. Supposedly the Storm of the Century is due to arrive any minute now, although so far we've not seen much except damp pavement. We may be taking another short break for a few days, as the Human seems unable to get her grades all done while still keeping up with the impawtant stuff. Like my blog. Phfffft.
