Even as I blog...

... Federer and Nadal are battling it out on Centre Court and it's so close it's edge-of-seat stuff! Wowee cazowee, it's two sets all and Nadal has just gone into the lead at 8 games to 7 in the fifth set. It's 9.12 p.m, 30 all. I'm busting for the human litter box but I can't leave sight of the telly now! Okay, maybe that was just a bit too much information... He's won! Nadal's won! I didn't mind which man won but it sure was a good match!

Okey dokey, enough already, this is not a sports blog. In fact I don't like much sport except tennis and horsey sports (so long as no horse is hurt or injured).

Nor is this a political blog, but I am a tad fed up with our present governent. If Gordon Brown was supposedly such a great Chancellor of the Exchequer, how come he didn't put anything away against a rainy day, such as we are experiencing now? And how come he got away with raiding all our pension funds? And how come this government managed to sneak in the abolishment of the lowest rate tax band without the general populace knowing anything about it until it was a done deal - without, of course, doing anything to compensate the low-paid, who are the only people it affects anyway? So the poor get even poorer. I can only be glad that I don't have children, because the amount of times this government has changed the education system it's a wonder kids manage to learn anything at all and the poor teachers! I don't think they have any idea of what curriculum they are supposed to be teaching from one month to the next. As for the National Health Service, don't get me started!

Cheysuli, in the highly unlikely event you don't get elected as President of the USA, please come over here and stand for Prime Minister at the next election!!! Perhaps you could manage Britain as well as America and Italy?

A friend emailed me a really funny animated .gif which I wanted to put here but it won't animate and as a still picture it is meaningless. Does anycat know how to post an animation to Blogger?

In recent news, THIS has made me pretty mad and I suspect a lot of other people too. Big Brother looms ever nearer!

In other news, I'm overjoyed that Dr. Tweety isn't giving up his blog entirely but is only calling upon da Momee's secretarial services less often during the summer because she is busy with her new business. All the best for great success Fab Five Momee!

While visiting the Fab Five, I discovered that Skeeter, who has just had his sixteenth birthday, is very ill. I'm sure he and his family would appreciate your purrs and prayers. You've probably all been to visit by now anyway and it's just me (as usual!) who is way behind with the news.

Now for something more cheerful:


Pyzam Family Sticker Toy
Create your own family sticker graphic at pYzam.com

I found a link to this site on Oh Dear My Memory Has Failed Me's* blog. I think Jasper McKitten Cat was mentioned though. The site has all sorts of cool things so check it out! I have lots more much-loved family members but the graphics get a bit small if you add too many! I also got my font there so I don't have to keep "poking" the HTML to get the font I like.

* Just remembered, it was Buddy, Finnegan and Jasmine's blog. Sorry guys!

Last but by no means least, thank you to everycat who has wished me well with the results of my brain scan. I must admit to being a tad anxious and hope I don't have to wait too long for the appointment with the neurologist. My Dad rang me today (well, yesterday now!) and I described what the scan found as best I could (he doesn't read my blog). He was a bit surprised and said it could be parasites. "WHAT??? In my BRAIN???" "Well, it could be [some long unpronounceable word]." I would have liked to have chatted more about this but he and my stepmum are staying with my sister and her family in Canada so he didn't want to talk for too long at their expense, I guess. He didn't say I was about to drop dead or go even madder than I already am (lol!) anyway, so all I can do is wait and hope for the best. Meanwhile I will email him the graphic I made based on the still picture I downloaded from the interwebby and Google this sort of stuff like crazy!

As I write this I've got the TV on and I'm hearing all the terrible news that's going on in the world, feeling that my problems fade into insignificance by comparison.

I changed my font at pYzam.com

Have a good week everycat:) xxx

Certainly I can manage all those countries together (although Italy has tossed me out). You know Total World Domination is my goal.

Lux said...

We hope you don't have to wait too long to hear, also. Waiting's always the worst! (Thinkin' good thoughts.)

Here in the U.S. we're pretty fed up with our government, too. Well, at least "me and my family" are.

Chey, save us!

So many things I don't know what to comment on ;O)
I hope your scan results are good. Don't even get me started on the government!

Big Brother is getting bigger and sneakier all the time!

I like your cartoon family, and also your new font looks great.

William said...

Gosh, that sounds like our place. (Well, except for the health care thing.) But at least you haven't had Brown for almost eight years!!!!

Anyway, I hope you don't have those things in your brain. I'd tell you that Russell could eat them for you because he'll eat anything, but that's kinda gross and what if you were having dinner or something?

I like your family picture!

We're purrrrring for you, B/C.

Also, a quick note: Castle started his own blog, at Castle Pants. (in case no one else bothered to tell you about it)

Hello and very nice to meet you!

As a cat, I don't watch TV. My mom says though that you should not feel insignificant in the face of the world's problems. I agree. Getting tuna is an important part of my day, and she says doing one good thing for someone in the world, however small (like adopting 5.5 pound me!) is significant.

Purrs,
Abby Normal
