this and that

i did not
 turn on
 that stupid comment verification thing
 i have it set to only ask for verification
 on posts
 older than 10 days
 i don't know why its on

you can just ignore it and post your comment without it

finished The Magicians Trilogy 
 it was really wonderful
 i highly recommend it

still not fully in the holiday shopping mood
 i am really
 toonman and i
 each other
 this year

annie's got a new trick
she's learned
 she comes up on the coffee table 
presents herself 
to be indulged 
we're working on lap sitting next 

i am not sure
 if you know this about me
 if i misplace something
 finding it
 consumes me

 i cannot simply 
'get over it' 
 'buy another' 
i have to find the lost whatever 
i also am one of the best people to ask for help if you lose/misplace something 
 i have to tell you
the blush brush

on saturday
 i cleaned the two blush brushes i own 
put them in the silverware drainer to dry

 in the early evening 
i checked
 one was dry 
one was still damp 
decided to put them in the bathroom

went into the place i keep it 
the other
 i stuck in .. well thats part of the problem
 i can't remember 
 i stuck it 
on sunday
 i put on some make up for the  photo shoot
for the book i told you about on sunday
 looked for the brush 
couldn't find it 

i searched everywhere 
even places it couldn't possibly be
 i had to go out 
 i asked toonman to look under the furniture
 he was sure one of the cats found it 
played with it
 it was somewhere
 under something

 the photo shoot 
was great fun 

this is one of the shots we did after we were done outdoors

nick who has a website/business at here took it
i digress 
after nick and eljay left
 i asked toonman
 if he had looked for the brush
 he said
 yes but it wasn't under the furniture 

i decided to look again
 i checked email 

while i was sitting at my desk 
harry was nosing my feet 
when i moved
 he moved
 he started poking around next to the air filtering thingie
 i thought 
he's found something and he's going to eat it
 i need to stop him 
i moved the air filter thing
 there was my brush

one of the cats
 find it 
 turned it into a toy

which one?
 i guess
 thats something 
i wont find out

harry turns lots of things into toys


  1. Honestly, you can make anything seem interesting! I love the way you write! Beautiful pic of you and toonman.

  2. Ah, the joy of kitty-cat's stealing things for you. My sister had cats who would steal her jewelry, good jewelry.

    I know what you mean about losing things. I lost my IPod for nearly a year and got so frustrated I did buy another one. Guess what the day after the new arrived, I moved something on my table by my chair and among the whatever, there it was upside down. RATS!

    I love the photo, really love it!

  3. Off-topic, but Harry has such a great tail.

  4. Sweet pic. And those dang cats.

    Our big lazy cat has decided that he wants to be my cat but he doesn't do the lap sitting thing very well.

    I've put the Magician's Triology books on my goodreads list. They seem like they could be fun.

    Heather is the finder of lost things in our house. She is good at it also.

    I was wondering what was up with all the blogspot blogs having the captcha thing. I always depend on you to get the inside info on things.

  5. I get obsessed with finding things too. :)

    Stunning photo. Wow!

    And I have no clue why blogger started putting that stupid can't-get-rid-of-it captcha thing. ARGH.

  6. Oh what a fun toy, a blush brush! I can just imagine one of your cats (Harry) batting that around the floors until it's out of sight.
    Love that photo of you and your sweetheart.

  7. That's a lovely photo of you and The Toon! Lol about blush brush! Morgan pushed a whole loaf of bread in its plastic bag onto the kitchen floor over night and proceeded to pulverize it into bread crumbs! She did a fairly good job too...the scrubby cat!

  8. Awww - cute shot of the two of you.

    I'm on Wordpress so still have to enter the silly words into that box... Argh.

  9. I have found many an item tucked into a shoe or a slipper. Years ago, we never knew if it was a cat or a toddler. Unless it was coins.. then it was always the kids. ;)

    Beautiful photo of your and Toonman.

  10. Terrific shot of you and Toonman.

    The cat, of course, feels that anything and everything should be a toy for his attacking pleasure.

  11. j'adore the shot of you and Toonman Daryl, looks so fab in black and white, classic! Now I'm going back to Sunday to read about the photo shoot!

  12. That's so great that you and Ray will be featured in their book...did they take a family portrait with you two and the three gingers?

  13. Lovely photo of the two of you.

    About "that stupid comment verification thing", I did this and it works:
    Go to Settings, go to Post and comments, on Comments Location choose 'Embedded' comment form instead of 'pop-up'.


apologies for the word verification but a lot of spam has been happening ...
