Cat grooming whom?

Picture this: me sitting in the bathroom with Moxie sitting in front of the sink. She seemed to have fur stuck under her tongue and couldn't manage to get it out. I happened to notice that it wasn't fur. Nope, it was much much longer than sprig of her own fur. As a matter of fact, it was one of my own hairs. Nope, not striped or at all grey. (I note the fact that it wasn't grey at all to describe how unlike her own fur colour this was, not how unlike my own hair colour it was. So!)

Imagine a cat having ingested a piece of spaghetti or vermicelli with tomato sauce, or even a worm (!) (oh, no sauce on the worm!) (oh, um, not that worms necessarily need to be sauced, just sayin'), but seeming at once mystified as to how it got there and what to do with it.

Slowly, I extended my hand toward her face, pinching at the strand of hair once, causing her to draw her head back microscopically as her tongue that had been stretched to get that hair out of her mouth already seemed to have blocked her own attempts.

Okay, missed it once, yes, but I got it the second time I tried. She seemed to look relieved and grateful and disgusted all at once.

I'll take her look of relief as thanks.

Falling down a...

[personal profile] gale_storm, not falling down a rabbit hole. Or even falling to the floor, which I've now not done in, oh, more than a year, I guess. 

At least I've never found myself falling down a rubbish chute. Yeah, not yet, anyhow!

The strangest places where someone can read about the oddest happenings are, well, spots in which I tend to spend too much time. That said, I'll leave you with this story, without spending overmuch time to make it sound like a Twilight Zone episode:

So, lessee... About 3 a.m., a man goes to throw away stuff down a rubbish chute, becomes confused as to whether his phone was in the bag he just tossed away, so he leans in a bit too far and plummets down the chute to find his phone had been in his pocket all along. Still and all, he's now found himself at the bottom of the chute, which I'm envisioning like the ick in 'Star Wars,' as his rescuers pumped air down to him as they worked to get him out, which happened after about an hour after he first fell in. O.O

DC man fell into a trash chute because of his phone

'Spider Cat, Spider Cat, doing whatever wherever it wants! Making biscuits, purring loudly, oh so proudly! Zow! This is the Spider Cat!' 

Oh, and Spider Cat is waaaay preferable to Cat Spider!

Doctor Who?

Just wanted to capture my thoughts on Doctor Who being portrayed by a woman instead of a man:

The Doctor will be portrayed by a woman. Big deal, in the most sarcastic way one can say! I'm looking oddly forward to how the Tardis is voiced. A few series/seasons past, the Tardis did have a voice. A female one, in "The Doctor's Wife." So? Yeah, that's about all I have to say on the change in the Doctor's (the character's) gender as perceived by people who feel that gender/sexuality is binary only, even in fiction having characters who travel in time as well as space. In other words: so? 🙄
