    I probably shouldn't mention that my cat has spent the last 20 minutes in my arms, purring and head bumping my chin, huh?

    oh, this is hysterical, I forgot to close the blinds and she's attacking her image in the patio...going all "sideways cat" and her tail is all floofed out!

    ok... I'll go close it.
    Huh, Shiny is like that too. While we scheduled her and Ori to get fixed before they grew up, Shiny apparently started kitty puberty early (none of the really unpleasant stuff, thankfully, but she was starting to act like Stereotypical Cat and the vet had a little bit of a harder time with the operation). She used to be the friendly one, now she's kind of aloof. Time and treats have helped, although my husband has commented that it's like she tries to be affectionate...she just doesn't know how.

    She used to

    Funnily enough, Ori -- the one I nicknamed "tsundere kitty" back in the day -- is a total snuggle bunny now.
    Nothing to see here...no, really. Not even in almost-invisible white text.

    I've found the more love I bestow (in classic Looney Toons 'love him, squeeze him, and call him George' style), the more snuggley they get. Or possibly I just don't notice them trying to wiggle away as much. >.>

    Our cat just howls for attention and slowly starts to do crazier and crazier things until you do.

    Morning cantinas

    Today will involve learning to type because I keep hitting all of the wrong keys.

    Ah, no, today will involve, er, er, tea.

    Back soon.

    Did you see in the Twitterverse where she was contemplating Shatner in the remake?



    I stand by my original assessment.



    Even if it was fairly talented wrongness.

    There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

    The Shat only really works in certain things - Star Trek (obviously), T.J. Hooker and $#*! My Dad Says were fine, but in other things he often feels like he's there because of stunt casting.

    And I despise the ridiculousness of most remakes... If I have seen already something, why would I want to see a bad Xerox of the original?

    No love for the spider-flick?



    (And he was perfect in his role on Boston legal.)

    I never watched Boston Legal because of one of the other actors in it (and there is no way I would suffer through their abysmal, awful loathsome presence just to see the rest of the show), but I'll admit that Kingdom Of The Spiders was an entertaining cheese-fest of the highest order. Not something that is ever going to be remembered as a highlight of Western culture.

    And he was decent, if not staggeringly original, in Third Rock From The Sun, but, really, that was EPIC stunt casting...

    Good morning!

    Positives: My foot is finally starting to feel better!

    Negatives: In the attempt to put less pressure on my foot while walking, I seem to have screwed up my back.

    Positives: The very first book I've edited for the publisher I'm working for is off my plate and will be published in a month. I am super excited.

    And I've learned that I really need to up my game as an author. LOL.

    I once heard him say in an interview that he never really approached it as singing, more like spoken poetry. And he recently released another album.

    No, seriously, he did.

    For all the jokes heaped upon him, The Shat really isn't that bad of an actor. Yeah, they make fun of his delivery and it later probably ended up as a self-caricature.

    But the man played Shakespeare. And worked with Christopher Plummer. And he was on Broadway with Walter Matthau.

    Oh, Ace - you should know by now that I love his work. I really am not dissing the man, and if you need proof of his acting chops, there are plenty of one-off appearances scattered around his credits where he out-acts even the big name stars of the franchises he guests in. It's just... The casting people are often really, really uninspired. Hopelessly so. I would love to see him given something really meaty instead of a sit-com, so he can show that he has the ability to command the screen again rather than crack wise with his co-stars.
