7 Aug

 

Everyone wants to change the world.

Great Ideas that will Change the World

(well, maybe just mine or yours )

1. Move to the beach; adopt casual coastal philosophy toward life (and flooring).

 

2. Convert the boring automatic dishwasher in the (duh) kitchen to a wine cooler. Cheers! […]

Summer Notes To Self: 7 To Ponder

2 Aug

 

 

Scribbled on an iPhone “Notes” APP near you…

 

  • If a stranger tells you, “I’m crazy. I know I’m crazy!” three times in the course of a ten minute conversation in a doctor’s waiting room… take them at their word.  Run for the hills.
  • Overheard at the veterinarian’s office: “Coyotes are cute. I want to hug them all.” Good luck with that…

7 Signs Your Dog and Your Cat are Gifted!

12 Jul

Yippee! It’s a summer rerun 😀

Cats and dogs

have taken over the internet and social media. Their furry mugs are everywhere…  YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest. Today Wattpad – tomorrow the world.

There must be a reason for this. Maybe they are really smart?

Perhaps brighter than your average couch potato.

We humans are not always the sharpest swizzle sticks in the mini-bar drawer.

Skip I.Q. tests and tedious assessments. Cats and dogs can be identified as gifted by their families. Is your Monty or Muffy gifted?

Is Your Pet a Party Pooper?

4 Jan

 

Pets… can’t live with them; can’t live without them.

FYI – I am both a dog person and a cat person.

Dogs will swallow anything (you know what I mean).

However, we expect more from cats. They are the mere embodiment of discernment. They control their unbridled enthusiasm. They appreciate understatement. They are refined.  Above all, they are really fussy eaters.

But, no. On the busiest party night of the year, pussy cat has swallowed something festive and is decking the halls with projectile vomit and decorating the hearth with (use your imagination).

Ho. Ho. Ho. Forget that fancy dinner dance with “A” list celebrities. Forget the overpriced, hand sequined killer outfit you bought for this special occasion. Forget the stardust and forgive the feline. We’re off to see the ER vet! […]

Scruffles

Dwayne Dear,

 

Must I remind you? In our Sole Custody Agreement dictated by the SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, I (the plaintiff and “the mother”) KARLA FLICKER KLIMPFER, beat you (the defendant and “the father”) like a monkey’s brass drum.

 

As the Primary Residential Custodial Parent and the parent entitled to receive feline support on behalf of  “SCRUFFLES,” I would like to bring to your attention the following pressing issues.

 

The court reinstated your visitation rights on alternate weekends of months beginning with an “M” and ending with a “Y.”  Don’t be late.

 

It is important to remember that Scruffles’ nutritionist insists on “Fancy Pants Pussy” Steamed Wild Alaskan Salmon in a champagne consomme. Scruffles and her litter coach will know if you try and pass off those cheapo generic kibbles again. […]

7 Things Your Cat Won’t Tell You

20 May

 

Cats… too cool for canine drool.

What your cat won’t tell you:

1 –  Geez. Brush your teeth before you breathe in my face.  BTW you snore like a Sumo wrestler.

2 –  I am an extremely sensual, mystical being – an INFP* to be exact – so deal with it.

3 –  Don’t give me canned tuna and say it’s Wild Alaskan Salmon. I wasn’t weaned yesterday. 

4 –  “Talk to the Tail” means “Talk to the Tail!”

5 –  Sometimes you piss me off so I pee in your cozy pair of sheepskin slippers. I don’t get angry. I get even.

6 –  The one with the Purr Power in the relationship is the one with the “I love you less. Perhaps I’ll tolerate you occasionally!”  attitude.

7 –  Don’t… ever… ask… me… if… I… want… a… dog. Not even a puppy. Get real.

I Feel Your Pain

10 Jul

July is National Boredom Month, and so I celebrate boredom. Come on, cultivate your ennui.

And may the force be with you.

BarbBestHumorBlog

Arrrgh!

If you are feeling bored lately, here are 7 HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS to shake ya outta that weary funk:

 

1.   READ A BOOK.  WTF why not – How ’bout a clever book about boredom?

ANATOMY OF BOREDOM – Boredom: A Lively History by Peter Toohey (via BrainPickings!)

 

2.   PLAY OLD SCHOOL SCRABBLE – or a “bored game” of your choice – ‘TIL YOUR EYES BLEED or ‘TIL NOBODY IN YOUR FAMILY IS SPEAKING TO YOU.

3.    Catch up with the 21st century. Go electronic with Scrabble Flash.

 

4.   DRINK, preferably with friends (FB friends don’t count) and when in a jolly mood. Wine away.

5.   Join a club. Hmmm, here’s one!

 

7.   HIT the “celebrity news.” Reading about how bored senseless Paris Hilton and/or Lindsay Lohan are – with all their money, glam, beauty, youth, personal assistants, movie star friends, toys, talents, trainers, and resources – will help you focus on your own blessings…

like “Thank God, I can’t afford a cocaine habit,” or “Good thing I don’t have to worry about totaling my Porsche Carrera 997 S,” or “Darn, I don’t have anything to wear to my court appearance today.”
