A Unique Job

Ya, I know, I kind of checked out of the blogosphere there. Mostly it involved working too much and dressing up like a panda.


And then giving a presentation whilst wearing a panda mask that I altered with a pair of kiddie scissors so that I could see out of the eyeholes, and apparently when you do not pay top dollar for a panda mask, you do not get top quality. Nay, you get acrylic fur haphazardly stuck to mesh, and when said mesh is cut, you get faux panda fur in your nose and eye sockets, which you will then proceed to pull out in furry eye boogers for the next 72 hours. I’m sure that was healthy.

But I survived. And the panda mask kind of survived. And my job survived, despite the fact that I was so delirious from lack of sleep that I had to ask for help in the middle of my own presentation. You know, the one I put together? Awesome.

In feline news, Tatum has taken a turn for the old, and is suddenly much less eager to get up, even for mice, in the mornings. And then he cuddles on my lap all day, and makes himself so happy he just purrs and purrs and snots on my white pants and that…is not cute. He has also not slowed down in his eating, despite slowing down in his energy level, so his already-significant posterior has gotten much more FAT. Causing me to have to dump him from my lap every now and then so that I can get some feeling back in my legs.

Sugar, meanwhile, has taken up Tatum’s goat-like tendencies, seeing as how he’s too busy sleeping, and ate all of the little arrow stickers The Funasaurus was using to mark up a document the other night. If we leave salmon or steak out her highness wants nothing to do with it. But neon blue post-it stickies? Nom nom nom. We’re waiting to see how this plays out with her digestive track.

The fun times never end around here.

i don't want to be a bummer, but i loves me some cats.

So, since it's sort of a sudden change with Tatum, you might take her to the vet.

So, the panda mask coupled with the inspirational poster behind you is pretty much the funniest/most surreal thing I've seen in quite some time.

Hey, the panda thing is sexy. :-)
I'm sympathizing with you on the post-its. Sophie decided to ingest most of a grocery bag that was holding some play-doh cans. I'm sure she was going for the playdoh but just didn't have the appetite after finishing off that yummy plastic.
So we've been having plastic poop around here for a few days. fun stuff.
