Random Musings of a Crazy Woman

I think my poor old laptop may be on its last legs. It just refuses to do Remote Desktop any more, so I can't access my photos or my graffics programme, so I've had to resort to doodling in Paint, which is quite a learning curve as I hadn't used it before.

I've slept most of this week and last away. I don't know why I can't seem to go to bed before it gets light any more. Is it coz of my resident spider, who seems to go walkabout at night, I wonder?

You can see a doodle of Boris. That's what I've decided to call him. Trite I know, but I'm not accustomed to naming spiders. Even my resident slugs haven't got names - at least, none given by me. Just click on the link above or on this nice (though blurry) photo of William eating veggies off his claws (unless your name is Beetle, in which case I wouldn't recommend it, or an arachnophobe. I scared myself just doing the doodle!)

I don't really think I can blame Boris though coz I only saw him for the first time the other night.

Trouble is, I've got people to see, appointments to make... *Sigh*. If it wasn't for the fact that I don't like the taste of blood I'd think I was turning into a vampire! Do Not Worry, the only blood I've tasted is my own and no, I don't self harm, *laughing out loud*.

All for now. Have a lovely weekend evfurrybody.

What Came Next

Some purrples were upset, or disturbed, by my Wordless Wednesday, so perhaps it was in bad taste rather than funny. I have answered some of my commenters, but this is what I said to one:

"I’m so sorry you found my WW scary. I think I may have upset quite a few purrples. Bozo is part of me so he always gets fed well and no cat who has owned me, or will own me, has, or ever will, go hungry! An empty cat bowl in my home is one that is washed and filled straightaway. When Cybil came to me she was overweight and had to go on a diet, but once she knew food was always available, she stopped gromphing it down like there was no tomorrow and grazed gently on her diet food as and when she wanted and lost weight as a result! Ollie and William were with me from kittens and they never went hungry and never got fat."

Sorry! I love cats and would rather go without food myself than let a cat in my care go hungry!

Just saying.

Karen Jo gave me this sweet "LOVA YA" Award. Thanks Karen Jo, I love it!

I can't seem to find any rules for this award except to nominate eight bloggers, which works for me!

Um, I think just about evfurryone has received it by now, but here goes.

Timothy Dickens
Cheysuli and Gemini
The Misadventures of Me
Chase, Kaze and Latte
Kimo and Sabi
Prince Muddy Paws and Myst
Maggy, Zoey and Ann

Here is the meaning and rules of this award:

This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I received it from Sukie and from Grrreta, Ambrose, Teddi and Chloe. Thanks guys!

Oh noes, now I have to nominate eight more bloggers! I hate leaving anyone out because evfurryone I read deserves them!

The Hotties
Mr. Hendrix
William, Caroline, Olivia, Russell and Gracie
Jeter Harris
The Zoo
Empress Bee
The Island Cats

Okay, I think that's a wrap!

Have a lovely Sunday evfurryone.

Sunday Sunshine

If you find Sundays a bit depressing, with nothing else to look forward to once you've read Daisy's Sunday Comics except work tomorrow, then try visiting this beautiful, lyrical blog. Read back and back. Beautiful, poetic prose and wonderful photographs. If you've discovered this wonderful site before, then you probably know how I feel about it. There is a sense there of wildness, loneliness, and yet community spirit, even though that might sound contradictory!

In other news, I've had some lovely awards, which I will post later. I'm too tired now but I really do appreciate them!
