Head-clearing Weekend

Sometimes I just can’t bring myself to look at MRA bullshit. I’ll be back tomorrow. In the meantime, kittens.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

I’m amazed you put up with as much of their crap as you do, David. But kitties are always good!

So today was my weekend away, but there was a relative who said that some girl couldn’t have been raped because she’d gone up to a guy’s hotel room. Then he joked that my husband should poison Saudi Arabians.

I sometimes feel like “Can’t I just spend some IRL time in a group where nobody is a racist asshole? Not even a little bit of one?”

katz — ick, here’s an anti-oppressive baby animal just for you http://antioppressivebabyanimals.com/post/23488813911/image-description-a-baby-hairy-coo-with

A hairy coo is a cow, I guess?

Because it sounds like a slang term for vulva.

It’s cute!

Kitties!!

I have news – my son moved out of the house this weekend, and we couldn’t be happier about it. He’s 20 and has just sort of been on extended summer vacation since he graduated from high school over 2 years ago – not motivated enough to do well in school, but not working full-time either. Being on his own is going to be good for him. He won’t be able to let us take care of every little thing, and he’ll figure out he’s capable of a lot more than he thinks he is. He and his girlfriend moved into an apartment with another couple just down the street. Let me just go all Texan on y’all for a moment to say YEEEE HAW!

Aw, one of the kittens looks like the Biscuit! Who is growing like a dumpling-tummied (fat kitten bellies FTW) weed, by the way. So far he’s charmed all the older cats into playing with him, and Lil watches over him like a sheepdog.

My parents are in town and I’m off work this week, so I’ll be in and out.

YEEE HAW, claire! What are you gonna do with all this fame, fortune, and extra room in the house?

Katz, that sucks. I never know what to say when someone is an asshole like that. You know you can’t change their mind, but if you’re quiet, everyone else thinks you agree.

katz — simple answer is yes, complex answer is that they’re a type of cow — http://en.academic.ru/dic.nsf/enwiki/140705

We started cleaning his room before he had even moved out – OMFG, so much dust. HOUSTON, WE HAVE A GUESTROOM.

I’m mostly looking forward to not getting waked up at 1 am by someone making grilled cheese sandwiches and banging the microwave door.

Congrats, just watch out for ending up long term unemployed and moving back in (hopefully he’ll have better luck than me!) and/or lthanks for that bit of advice, I’ll make my midnight snack now before it’s silly late!

He’s welcome to come back home if he absolutely has to, but I think he’ll be fine. It’s cheap to live here and he has some skills.

But, yeah, go get your snack soon! 😀

Yes, at the first manboobz meetup. There’s going to be one, right?

katz – argh, sympathies. Makes you wish you could divorce relatives, or at least disown ’em, doesn’t it?

clairedammit – yay for the room! Hope sondammit does well in his independent life.

hellkell – piccies of Biscuit the Big! We need more piccies!

Such cute kittens and that is very pretty poofy big cat. Today we think we discovered my Bengal’s true kitty name. Mum called him a name-that-is-not-his-that-implied-he-was-a-brat and he answered to it. Then he disappeared to the mother ship to report that he’s been discovered.

I’ve always postulated that cats are from another planet and they are here to take over the world. They kinda did…we do feed them and they’re the ones not having to work for it.

Attack of the kitteh! Iz dead of cute …

bengalcatmum – he’s been sprung! It is no coincidence that Cat and Brat rhyme.

I have Biscuit (actually Chocolate Chip Biscuit in full) on my lap, he is occasionally paying attention to the match between Serena Williams and Maria Kirilenko but his programme of washing himself is taking priority. We have two Devon Rex kittehs; Biscuit’s sister, (Blue) Cheese, is on Emma’s lap.

So, there is Feline Paralysis in your household!

Don’t know if you saw my comment on the other thread, but I cacked myself about “does that sexdoll belong to a Geelong supporter”.

Well, navy blue and white horizontal stripes! Glad someone appreciated that one. But seriously, that picture has been creeping me out so the brain cleansing kitteh thread is much appreciated.

Feline paralysis, partially averted, as Biscuit has decamped to his hammock.

Yes, our cats’ play equipment has a hammock. They are sooooo spoiled. =^..^=

Any chance that Jason from the recent Dr Phil episode about slut shaming is an MRA?

Oh, nvm, I googled him pretty easily. Time to plow through this nonsense.
