The topic: Evacuation


Well, it looks like Laurence of isfullofcrap.com has evacuated.

Earlier this month, he posted his take on FEMA, which is quite amusing, if not a little sad to see Edloe again.  Go check it out.  I’m sure it will bring a smile to your face.

(Laurence had to evacuate with his three kittycats this afternoon…God speed, Laurence, and thank you for once again sharing the much missed Edloe with us all.)

The catcams haven’t updated in about twenty minutes now.

Good luck, Lair and I hope all is well when you return home.  I hope this isn’t too stressful on the kittycats.

The topic: But it’s not what I ordered


I ordered a bunch of stuff from lakeside.com earlier this month.  One of the things I ordered, well three of the things, were new sheets. They had a king size fleece sheet set for under thirty dollars, which is a really good price.  I ordered one set of each color, blue, sage and burgandy. 

Imagine my surprise when I opened the box earlier this week to find that there were only two sets of sheets, the sage and the burgandy (burgandy my butt, these sheets are red).  No blue. But there was this other sage thing.  It was a blanket.  I check it out online, it cost three dollars more than the sheet sets.  Not enough to make a fuss about.  I take it out of the package and put it on the bed.  Yeesh, it doesn’t fit properly, no matter how I put it on.  Probably because of the footboard.  Stuff doesn’t hang down.

Then I get the bright idea to see if it would fit the sofa in the family room.  It will.  I washed it.  I dried it.  I put it on the sofa.  I like it.  I like it a lot more than the sheet that was on there before.

So, I go over to the lakeside website again, order the double/queen blanket for the loveseat and I re-order my blue blankets. 

The cats like it, too.

The topic: Crafty stuff


As I mentioned in an earlier entry, I got the craft stuff done.  I started on this when Katrina was just a tropical storm.  I spent late nights watching the storm news and getting my craft ducks in a row. 

By last Sunday, I’d made a total of two of these things.  And I wasn’t really happy with the second one.  I told Brian I was just going to quit.  I have some store bought items like this and I’d study them to try to see how a certain step was done and I just couldn’t see it.  I perused books at Michael’s craft store, even bought one that had instructions, a 101 type of book, but there was nothing there that explained how this was done.

It was just more work than I wanted to do. 

When I was whining to Brian about it, it hit me what I may have been doing wrong. It was so clear.  I don’t know why this wasn’t addressed in the how to books, it wasn’t an obvious answer.  So, I started on the other ones and by late yesterday afternoon, I’d gotten all fifteen of them done, including redoing the second one.

I got an awful lot of superglue on my fingers, pulling superglued fingers apart isn’t one of my favorite things.  And the superglue affected how I worked because I didn’t have much feeling in my fingertips.  That stiff coating didn’t help.

The topic: Annie and the water


Tired of Annie in the bathroom, I bought a new water fountain for the office.  And it seems to be working. Annie rarely goes into the bathroom anymore, she likes her own little water fountain.  I got it at CostCo online for about twenty-five bucks.

It took a couple of weeks of running it, but she finally gets it.

It’s sure nice.
