So I’m not ignoring you guys…

it’s just that I can’t see when/where/if you reply to my comments or Like them. The little symbol on the upper right indicates, but when I click on it, it just does loading circle forever.

Cats just eated nip from lauo’s garden and are thus QUIET, huzzah.

For Laurie C!

Just running through my local grocery store today and saw things that are relevant to your interests.

(Meanwhile, it’s still high summer outside. Yech.)

So, this private blog thingy

I know some of you started private  and some of you are going private.

What all does that entail? I just poked around on the Dashboard and it was no help as usual.

Is there anywhere you can see how many/who is subscribed to your blog? Cuz I know there’s a limit of 35 people for a free private blog.

While I was on the Dashboard, there was a map with a country in Europe highlighted as my visitors for today. I couldn’t tell from the map what it was. Below the map, it said “Slovenia”. I don’t know anyone in Slovenia, I’m pretty sure none of my friends are visiting there, so I suspect it’s spam. Another reason to go private!

Kitties are still good (cross fingers).

ETA: Argh, I found on the old Stats page that there are 67 followers. Twice too many! So it’s even more important that I have an actual list, since some of those blogs might be old, inactive ones.

PS Oh, there’s the list. Yeah, some of those people aren’t here and some of them have changed blogs. Might be able to get it down to 35. MAYBE.

This last “improvement” means I don’t see anyone’s banners or sidebars AT ALL. The posts are all dark grey letters on white backgrounds, all the same font. It’s fugly. Plus, if there are more than about 20 comments, I only see the most recent 20.

Any ideas, peeps?

But right now… the BFF and I are going to see “Magic Mike XXL”. ;)

Wait till you get to the part about the angel.

In this modern world of dogwhistle invective and coded slurs, wherein racist, sexist, homophobic ideology is frequently couched in ‘polite’ or ‘neutral’ terms, the better to distance its exponents from the bigoted reality of their actual opinions, it’s sometimes perversely refreshing when some properly oblivious specimen forgets the unspoken rule about code-switching into their Outside Politics Voice and lets us know what they really think, unfiltered. It’s like watching a slime-eyed troglodyte heave itself, gasping and wheezing, into the modern sunlight, an ugly-funny anachronism. You feel like you imagine David Attenborough does, whenever he has chance to narrate the cyclical reappearance of some particularly rare, hideous insect, but without the concern for its future preservation. Ah, you think to yourself, with almost fond revulsion, and here we see the Asshaticus Whatthefuckius, emerging slowly from its own distended rectum. Note the pungent aroma of gender essentialism and failure.

I am, of…

Moar cat update

The Prozac still seems to be working for Mr. Tuxie. Have gotten a reliable mail-order supply from a place nearby. It’s a dollar a day, which is so much cheaper than taking hims to the vet all the time. All his fur has grown back so he’s back to him big handsum tukseedo self.

Miss Tortie is still having problems with not wanting to eat. Pretty much completely whimsical as to what she’ll eat when, or if. Very frustrating. Took her to a different vet and they gave her a different hungry pill. She’s only had one dose but it seems to help, so keep your fingers crossed. Maybe if we can break the pattern, she’ll get better. She may have an intestinal disorder, but that would take a bunch more expensive tests. Other than that, she’s in great shape for 14.5. She and I both like the new vet better so I guess that’s where we’ll go from now on.

I miss the TK cuddles. He almost never sits on or near me any more. He’s still sleeping more than usual, but it’s okay if it keeps him healthy. Tortie spends all her time in Daddy’s lap. She’s decided, VERY FIRMLY, that I am in charge of noms and Daddy is in charge of pettins, and we’re not allowed to do the other. There’s no point in trying to change the mind of an elderly tortie, so that is how it shall be.

Sailor Babo is mad at me for forgetting to take him to the latest sci-fi convention. Oops.

Next weekend lauowolf and I are going to a book fair extravaganza. Speakers, panels, food and wine, who knows what all.
