The continuing kitteh saga.

Oh god, here we go again.

Where the hell did these little guys come from?

One helluva Week

This last week has been hell, what with my mom winding up going to the ER with serious breathing problems, and all.  Fortunately, they figured out it was because of the pollen and crap in the air causing a serious allergic reaction, and not her heart as originally feared. 

Here's hoping this upcoming week will be more merciful..... Please?

The great kitteh drama

Well, not too long ago I found the following denizens outside my domicile:

These cute little guys were littered by the mother, a cat I called Mean Cat.  Yes, I use the past tense, because I found Mean Cat dead on my front lawn, and her kittens had been moved by her to my recycling can in my back yard.

Mean Cat is in the middle frame.

So, I was stuck with 5 kittens with a dead mother and no real way for me to take care of them.  Fortunately for them, there was another female who'd lost her only kitten around, one I call Snowflake.

She's taken 3 of them, and I think another feral female around here got the other 2.  I'll keep ya'll apprised as soon as I know something else.

Simple Consideration

...seems to be something that is becoming more and more rare these days.  What the hell is it with people?
Today, I was at the store to pick up a few things I needed and turned down a certain isle.  Blocking the aisle was an alleged woman with enough kids to field her own baseball team, none of them were being watched.  I had to pretty much slam on the brakes to keep from greasing my shopping cart's crappy wheels with Greasy Crotch Dumpling Ooze.  Said "woman" then turned and glared hatefully at my white ass simply because I was apparently invading her personal space some 8 feet away from her.  To be fair, I think she needed quite a bit of personal space, considering her size (Ok, I know...low hanging fruit... )

I said "excuse me," and waited for her to move her cart so I could grab the items I needed and GTFO.  She then sniffs kind of disdainfully at me, and turns back to her browsing, just ignoring me, while her brats ran rampant.  This, as Chibiangi knows, is one of the fastest ways to piss me off.  Seriously, you're going to get bitchy with me for attempting to go down an aisle you're occupying?  Common courtesy says if someone's transiting an aisle you're in, and you're not ready to leave quite yet, move either your own ass, or your cart out of the fucking way!
It certainly does not say "Glare hatefully and then ignore the requester as well as your own screaming brats. "

The cherry on top of the shit sundae?  I wound up in line BEHIND this woman.  In a store where you have to unload your own cart.  Needless to say, it took me a helluva long time before I got to check out.

Ruminations and Philosophy

I was just reading an article about how some scientists may have found evidence of an earlier universe, and this kind of sparked my thoughts.  What was the nature of this theoretical universe?  Is the Cycle of Time seen in the Wheel of Time and nBSG universes a real thing?  Was there another universe, brimming with life and potential way back in some unspeakably long ago age?
What happened?  Especially to any sophonts that existed there?

And what will be the fate of this universe?

Food for an idle Sunday's thoughts, folks.

The Sense of Entitlement

Certain people who recently occupied a relatives house certainly fit this description quite well.  These fine figures of humanity not only managed to force said relative to have to remodel their house, they've apparently done so to multiple dwellings that they have occupied in the past.  Why did they choose to do such things?  Was it drugs?

Perhaps drugs were partly to blame, but the sense of entitlement is definitely a major figure in their patterns of behavior.  These people would keep a place for a while, start getting slack on paying the rent and whatnot, and then when they got evicted, they'd get angry and start inflicting damage to the property.  Said people would then vacate while blaming other parties for the damage, and then proceed to defame their previous landlord in an attempt to hide their own perfidy.

Now, I'm not sure how said people can blame someone else on their 3 daughter's shitty diapers being piled on the floor, the broken window, the broken sliding glass door, and such.  But given that they were evicted and the damage suddenly happened, I'm sure they'll think of something.

If I'm allowed, more will be posted on this, as well as pictures of the damage.

I know it's kinda all linky - no thinky

But THIS is frickin' cool.

Rain, Rain, Go the f*** away!

Seriously, the next person who bitches about not enough rain in my presence is gonna get a boot to the head.  Holy CRAP am I sick of all of this rain.  My backyard looks like a jungle out there, and I'm half afraid to go out there for fear of running into a lost troop of Japanese soldiers who don't know WW2 is over.

Then there's the inevitable disruption to services around here, namely roads, sewers, and sometimes power.  I for one would like my sewer to never back up again, thank you very much.  Not to mention the power thing.

Oh well, I guess the upside to this is my water bill should go down.  Oh won't.

Weeks after the incident in Japan....

....and we're still not getting a straight story.  Anyone else getting a bad feeling over this?

What a hell of a week.

Stayed quite busy, which is usually a good thing.  There were a couple of hitches here and there, but things seemed to work out fairly well.  I know I haven't been posting enough to this thing, but shit happens.

There's stuff I want to post here, but I just can't make it work in text form.  It comes out awesome in my mind but when it comes time to type it, it gets completely buttfucked.  Oh well, maybe sometime.

April Fools

Wow, I'll be so glad when this day is over.  Call me a stick in the mud, but the retardedness of the jokes people are trying today (IRL, on TV, and on the net) is just godsmackingly awful.

More to come in a bit.
