Sunday Stealing: The Trivia About Me Meme

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger and blog named Astrid Paramita. She states that she stole it at BubbleBoo. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

On cat videos...

Paula Poundstone may have 12 cats and may lament that they don't do anything...

However, our 2 cats seem hell bent on catching every possible (knock on wood they don't) kitty illness/ailment. You may remember last week I mentioned taking them to the vet because I thought they both still had upper respiratory infections. Well, they did. Irish woke us up Friday night with 2 sneezing jags. One of them I counted 18 sneezes in a row. Maddux also had ear mites and ringworm. Tuesday afternoon Irish could barely keep her left eye open and it was all swollen under the bottom lid. Of course I couldn't do anything about it that day by the time I discovered it because we already had other appointments that day. Wednesday I called the vet and of course she says bring her in right away, she could have scratched or injured her eye. She didn't. It was just pink eye, but when the vet took her to do they exam I heard the most awful noises I've ever heard a cat make. (Yes, I know it was her because the vet took us on her lunch time and no other 'patients' were there.) Anastasia and I are thinking of renaming her 'Diva'. It took the vet, several techs and the receptionist to manage the exam. You wouldn't believe how fast they got her back in her cage after. So now I have oral meds and ointment to administer for Irish and 2 oral meds for Maddux. Fun times. And I'm the only one brave enough in our house to give them their meds. (Yes, Anastasia is a wuss!)

Leno/Conan/Fallon. Just do it already. If this doesn't prove cheaper isn't always better...I don't know what does.

This can't go without mentioning, yet all the media attention is probably exactly what he wanted in a twisted, sick way to bring attention to himself and the reality show he is set to appear in. What am I talking about? A certain Caucasian, jackass, ousted, former Governor of Illinois said in an Esquire interview that he is "blacker than Barack Obama". Seriously? First of all you are a Caucasian. Second of all...it's 'President Barack Obama'. Show the appropriate amount of respect. Wait a minute...he wouldn't know what that was. Stop giving this man space in the media.

Dayum! Notice a certain attitude here? No patience. No patience for nuttin'. I am one cranky in pain beyotch. My back pain still hasn't calmed down.

Deep, cleansing breath...On a lighter note. Did you go vote? Lin at Duck And Wheel With String - Commencing The Dork Off II. My regulars will recall that I won the Duck And Wheel With String - First Official Dork-Off back in July. Where is my entry? All I have to say is...I'm a dork! I didn't enter. Why? Mostly because the back pain prevented me from going on a search mission for the perfect follow-up photo. Yeah. And besides...someone else should get a chance at the title. Where am I throwing my support? #6 JD of I Do Things. Why? It's the bangs and the glasses. Nuf said. Lol! Go vote...all the cool kids are doin' it.
