ponyinarope replied to your photo: Guess who’s ready for his close up? Meet Jayne. He needs a cute knitted hat. On it. Cat walks down the street in a hat like that, people know he’s not afraid of anything. For now I just sing to him. “JAYNE! The cat we call JAYNE!” (Fun facts: Jayne was the first born, and we named him immediately. Then hoped he turned out to be a boy. I am...
Nighttime Theraflu is a helluva dru-*zzzzz*
I am sick. I haven’t been this sick in a long time. The only reason I’m out of bed at all this morning is to feed Gypsy and check in on the kittens and I have one thing that has to get done today at work so I’m going in and doing that one thing and then I’m coming straight back home. The kittens were bouncing all over the place. I wish I had the energy for that, but I...
rachelkristin replied to your post: The best thing I didn’t catch on video (sorry) Your cats have the best names ever. I wish I could take credit for Agent Cooper/Diane. But that’s the brainchild of our neighbors. I’m still not sure whether their kitten is male or female, so that’s why I used both names. I hope it’s a boy kitty because Agent Cooper is a brilliant...
The best thing I didn't catch on video (sorry)
Agent Cooper/Diane attacking Gypsy’s tail. She let it go the first time. And the second. On the third she flipped onto her side and took Coop TO SCHOOL. He let out a squeal that was half “OH GOD OH GOD WHAT HAVE I DONE” and half “THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER.” Five minutes later he attacked my foot. Playful kittens first thing in the morning reduces the quantity of...
In this, Agent Cooper (or Diane, but I think Agent Cooper) and the Kitten To Be Named Later and I Hope That Doesn’t Give Her (Him?) A Complex re-enact a scene from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
beefranck replied to your post: KITTEN PLAY TIME. FINALLY. Yay kitties! Yay wine! YAY! YAY INDEED. Seriously you guys, I am still reeling from losing Boo so I’m more tense than usual (usual = pretty damn tense) and overly worried about the kittens and I’m doing a lot of not very healthy self-medicating and also my period is being a super bitch and if I had to choose between kittens...
KITTEN PLAY TIME. FINALLY.
They’d been sleeping all day, but I just spent 20 minutes watching them scamper around. Well, two of them scampered. One of them walked around a little, swatted at the other two a little, got cuddled by me a little (they REALLY do not know what to make of that. “WHAT IS THIS HOW IS THIS WHY IS THIS I DON’T EVEN MOOOOOOOOOMMMMMM” etc.) and then decided he’d had enough...
I love how so many people on Tumblr right now are...
So the kittens are sleeping in their hiding spot behind the desk. Dan’s sick so he’s sleeping. His snoring kept me up all night, even after I moved out to the sofa, even after I put earplugs in (I love you honey, but JESUS), so I have a sleep-deprivation headache and a kink in my neck from sleeping on the sofa. Gypsy has been Marge Simpsoning me every 10 minutes. I just spent the last...
STOP SLEEPING AND PLAY WITH ME. I don’t have to go to work today and all you’re doing is sleeping. It’s cute, but we’re missing out on important human-kitten bonding time. I bought stuff for you! WAKE UP.
So we left karaoke early, since I am tired and coming down with something and Dan is tired and already has something. (No, I didn’t sing anything. Next time. Probably.) And the kittens were in the same spot I found them in earlier this evening, piled on top of each other in the far corner of the office. But at least now they’re on a towel and not electrical cords. (Where have all my...
Punk Metal Karaoke, Halloween Show
That’s where we are right now. The band (that’s right, live band karaoke) is dressed like Hassidic Jews, so naturally they’re playing ZZ Top. There’s a couple here dressed like Curious George and The Man in the Yellow Suit, someone who is either an eggbeater, an Emmy, or some Lady Gaga outfit I haven’t seen yet, and my friend John is Dr. Clayton Forrester. Dan...
bewildered replied to your post: I AM HAVING A MONSTROUS GLASS OF WINE. my workout plan consists of walking to the liquor store (cardio!) and then carrying my booze home (weight training!). it is truly a miracle substance. I’ve been looking for a personal trainer. You are hired!
I AM HAVING A MONSTROUS GLASS OF WINE.
Booze. Is there anything it can’t do?

fakebandname: First Album: Larger than Life How can I not reblog this?
I do not have the words to adequately convey how much I do not want to deal with any part of this boneheaded day.
Kitten #1: Mom! I’m hungry! Mom! Can I have some more food? I’m hungry! Mom! Gypsy: OMG you JUST ATE. Kitten #1: That was, like, HOURS AGO. Gypsy: Srsly, it was 10 minutes. Kitten #1: I’M HUNGRY. Kitten #2: I’m hungry too! Kitten #3: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
And another thing
The emergency vet I went to, VERG, was amazingly fantastic. I’m closest to their Warren Street location and they provided the best care I’ve experienced since moving to Brooklyn, from the initial phone call where I was all, “Um, so this kitten is kind of not moving?” and they were all, “Bring him in immediately” to the moment I brought l’il Boo in and a...
My neighbors are taking one of the kittens, and they’ve already picked out a name. They’ve been watching Twin Peaks, so they want to name their kitten Agent Cooper. Coop for short. If it’s a girl cat, they’ll name her Diane. I love them for that.
Extreme sadness. All little Boo’s (I had to name him — still don’t even know if he was a him, for fuck’s sake*) vital signs were well below normal. His heart rate was half what it should have been. He wasn’t breathing well at all. His blood sugar was low, and the IV fluids did not perk him up as they should have if he’d been hypoglycemic or something. The vet...
I need your good thoughts right now.
I’m at the emergency vet. Came home to find the dark gray kitty separated from the rest and splayed out on the floor. I picked him up and he cried out, and Gypsy came running, but he was totally unresponsive to her or his siblings. He seemed ok this morning, a little laggy but he was nursing when I left for work, so something is definitely wrong.
Tea: I did it wrong
I just drank a cup, and now my throat hurts. Man, coffee never treats me this bad.
It’s Day 25! We are in the throes of full-blown kittenhood. They are exploring everywhere, pouncing on each other, and teething! Better than all of that, now when I walk into the room, they look up and SEE me. And a couple of them scoot right on over to me! So yeah, I’m totally scooping them up and hugging them now.

This is the most disappointing salad I have ever...
I mean, some of you are thinking “all salads are disappointing,” and I respect that. But I happen to like salads. I don’t love them, but I’ve been known to crave them, and I was actually looking forward to this one because it’s full of feta cheese and tomatoes. But something is off and I’m just going to pick out the tomatoes and cheese and then I’m going...
Please brew faster. Even though I got a decent night’s sleep I am not ready or willing to be awake and I need you. I need you so bad. Please brew faster.
