TGIF! (Thank God I'm a Feline!)
Gosh, it's a good thing that it's the weekend because we were beginning to forget what Mom looks like. She is back at work (it's the end of week two of the second quarter of school), so she has lots to do to keep her high schoolers learnin' stuff. One of her favorite colleagues took another job, so mom threw her a "farewell" party after school today with cake and punch ... and a present from the staff.
Mom's club kids sold food today (cheesecake slices and rootbeer floats!) during their powder puff football game (so mom had to go to the store(s) after work yesterday and supervise them today at lunch). I LIKE CHEESECAKE AND THE ICE CREAM PART OF ROOTBEER FLOATS, BUT DID MOM BRING ANY HOME FOR ME??? NO, OF COURSE NOT. BAH!
Then, after everything else, she got to do something with some of her favorite people: She went out to dinner near our favorite Chinese food place. Mom often says that she's not a "human being, she's a human doing." She's been so busy that she hasn't been able to turn on the computer for me to work on my blog. That really sucks when you're a blogging fiend like I am and you're so near to your 100th post!
Thanks Grr, Midnight and Cocoa for stopping by to ask where I'd been in the blogosphere. I missed writing about what the Feline Americans and I have been doing, but ... you know how it is when you don't have thumbs ... computers can be hard to turn on and the "mouse" can be really hard to control without a little human help.
Anyway, back to the Friday. Fudge was in full cat-telepathy mode this afternoon because he sent Mom a ton of brainwaves asking for some barbecued pork. D'ya know what Mom came home with?? Yep, a pint of barbecued pork. It was feast time for Fudgie and he "pigged out!"
What else have we been doing? We've decorated for Hallowe'en ... We've brought out all of our cinnamon, cloves and other savory smellin' candles for some "catmosphere." We've thought about carvin' a pumpkin, but Mom told us that we've all got appointments for "clippy claws" this weekend. Sigh ... I've been sharpenin' my claws for two weeks now! I don't want NUBS, I want glorious talons! I have a feeling that since "clippy claws" are in the mix, we might be getting our Advantage sometime soon, too.
The temperature isn't very autumnal ... It's downright HOT again. What happened to the rain? It's supposed to be more of the same this weekend. Mom's going to her friend the school area superintendent's house to make Christmas crafts tomorrow, so she might have to leave the a/c on for us if it's too hot. Ugh. I want cold weather!!! I've been laying on the paper a lot lately and I've absorbed (through my buns, of course) tons of weather predictions for rain, rain, rain. We've had very little to none, none, none (save for last weekend, right?).
Mom said that she bought a special surprise for me for Hallowe'en when she was at Target yesterday. She says that it's a costume and that I'll be the talk of some aspects of the blogosphere when I wear it. My whiskers are in an uproar! What is it? I hope that I won't look like a certifiable doofus. We'll see ...
