The topic: Rat bastards


I don’t know if I mentioned this here, but last year, Citibank raised our interest rate on the credit card we had with them.  It was raised from 10.99% to 16.99% for no good reason.  They just “did an audit” and “adjusted” some of their accounts.  I didn’t make late payments, as a matter of fact, it was paid in full each month.  Rarely did it carry a balance.

Well, neener neener neener you thieving, pillaging, steaming piles of dog crap.

Wii Fit says I'm down .9 lbs since Saturday

The topic: Keeping stuff clean


Have I ever whined about how difficult it can be?  I’m sure I have.  But here’s an example. 

I’ve told you about the pee pads I get.  For the cats who know where the litter box is and know that’s where you poop, but don’t get the concept that you can also pee in the box, and pee in front of it instead (ongoing problem since DeeJay), I use pee pads to prevent the urine from going under the plastic litter box and being very, very difficult to keep clean.  Believe me, if you’ve ever smelled cat urine that’s been under a plastic container for weeks (where the HELL is that smell coming from?) you would do everything in your power to prevent it. 

Sliding these pads under the litter box has helped, immensely.  I double up on them and change them daily.  The dirty ones go into this diaper container we got at Wal-Mart.  And when it’s filled, I wash them (using that ubercool Nature’s Miracle laundry detergent).

So, last week I take the container outside and hose off the inside and the outside, wiping it down as I go.  I left it out there to dry.

About a half hour later, I went out to see if I could bring it in, and see what I saw?

Yep. Some cat sprayed it while it was drying. Cats. Gotta love 'em.

The topic: Ollie doesn’t budge

See, I'd probably have moved him to start with. But Brian tries to be nice and Ollie gets more and more uncomfortable and finally moves.
