Well! I thought to myself. At least he ADMITS it. I mean, I’m not surprised, but it’s good that he’s confessing the truth to the world! The deejay continued. “Reid pled guilty to the eight counts against him, which included attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, attempted homicide, and placing an explosive device on an aircraft.” Which is when I realized I was thinking of Ralph Reed, not Richard Reid. Common mistake, I’m sure. * * * This is my kind of evil. * * * Big, bad thanks to Heather, who sent me – from my wish list – Hallmarks of Felinity. God, it’s funny as hell. I highly recommend it! Check this out, too. * * * I went and fed and poop-scooped for the cats at the pet store this morning. Fred went with me, since he’d done it before, and he actually fed the cats while I scooped the poop. I forgot what a pain in the butt it is to actually scoop out litter boxes, instead of using the handy-dandy sifter system we have going for ours. It was cool – all the cats there are adolescent-aged, and except for the escapee who hid under the cages and had to be dragged out kicking and hissing, they were all pretty well-behaved. I didn’t take much time to hug and love on any of them, because Fred was eager to get to work. When I start with my regular day next week, maybe I’ll get a chance to do some kitty-lovin’. * * * 1. What size shoe do you wear? 9 wide. 2. How many pairs of shoes do you own? I’ll estimate that I own 6 or 7 pairs of shoes. I’m not a big shoe person, but I do have certain shoe needs. 3. What type of shoe do you prefer (boots, sneakers, pumps, etc.)? Sandals during warm weather, because they’re comfortable and easy to slip on. During the winter, I wear my black leather Keds. 4. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite? My blue slide-on sandals. They’re my favorite ’cause they’re easy to put on, and because they’re comfortable. I’m not one of those women who will wear 6″ heels because they look good. In fact, the one pair of heels I have are about 1″ high, and I haven’t worn them since we went to Fred’s grandmother’s funeral in the summer of 2001. 5. What’s the most you’ve spent on one pair of shoes? A little more than $100, I think, on a pair of New Balance sneakers. I can’t fathom regularly spending hundreds of dollars on shoes. Hundreds of dollars on books? That I can understand. * * * Tubby and Spanky in the midst of a confab at the top of the stairs. And Spanky gets so excited he needs to go sniff Tubby’s ass. Tubby isn’t sure how he feels about that. If you look closely, you can see how badly Tubby needs to be brushed.]]>
