Cordatus, there’s always someone else better off than you. But ask yourself, is being a model using your brain? And anyway, a model what?

*Kicks last rabbit out the door* Finally they’ve all gone, I can sit down and enjoy my coffee. Panda, that’s the last time you throw buns!

*walks in, pours coffee*

So one of my three cats is sitting here next to me. He communicates with his eyes. That bulging, urgent stare he uses to communicate need. Right now he's looking at me like the house is on fire. But I know what he's saying: Pet me!

For this cat in particular, it is his highest life goal to be shown affection. It's kind of funny actually.

Mr baatard, give me that particular cat!

You put the right way Josie - brain usage is not a requirement for being a model.

He is now a fashion model. It was actually the shock that got me; he was the last person I expected to see as one. All in all, that gave me a slight boost to upgrade things at my end: studying, reading, writing, etc.

Beauty fades; brains don't!

No way Ted. I have three cats; the needy one, the autistic one, and the bully. I'm keeping them all!

I have two cats - one that loves affection but sh*ts in my house, the other that bites me but is perfectly clean.

Time for another coffee methinks.

Once upon a time I had three cats. They are gone now, but I miss them terribly. One day, I may have a cat again.

Sigh...I am in the mood some Hazelnut this afternoon.

Now that's just mean, stealing a guy's kitty! You wouldn't do that, would you?
Psht. I already did. *strokes Mr Baatard's cat*

I once had a German Shepherd. She was really cute and 'awww' and everything at first. A year later, I had to push food to her from afar. Lucky [her name] made me come out of the closet and declare to the world that I'm a cat man.

See, not difficult at all. I usually like a regular brew, but every once in a while I get a craving for something different.

*Walks over to Cordatus, gives the cat a bit of fish and a pat on the head.* Anyone got plans for the weekend?

Oh no. I'm petting him just the right way.

For the mean while, you can train the other two how to live on without the third.

Oh I don't think they'll miss him. Smitty is the bully. You'll find out.

Hey! I haven't been on here lately, because I haven't written anything in a while (besides this darn novel that is taking forever). I've had other idea, but have mainly concentrating on that. It better not be a waste of my time. I usually hate everything I write after I finish it.

Good Morning, All! It is a cold, but beautful day!

*Grabs a cup of coffee and takes a sip. Makes a face.

Is this leftover from yesterday?

I got plenty of exercise this week. I may go swimming with my kid sometime soon, but today the most work I did was plant a tree etc. with Mrs. B.

*leans back and takes a long pull of Guinness*

I tell you, once you get used to this stuff, you can't drink domestic beer anymore.

Sounds like you are a well-trained house husband! Mine knows how to run the vaccuum, do laundry, and does his share of diaper changing.


*Pours a cup of coffee and sits down*

I spent the day with daughter and hubby and thoroughy enjoyed it. After the hectic week I had, it felt like I deserved a slack Saturday.

After twelve years, I should be a highly trained husband! The only thing I still don't really do is cook. I just don't have a talent for it.

Our 19-year-old daughter is about to join the Coast Guard. I think we're all done changing diapers. Although we are considering adopting through DHS.
