y'all don't know how long I've been waiting for this...

to show up on youtube.


kitty sob stories

Yesterday I found out the Rowlett Petsmart is open. and they already have kitties there. Some cats get more elaborate stories than others. Was telling RTO about one that was really sad because it talked about how it was only supposed to temporarily be in foster care and then it's owner died and it's owner's sister tried to take it in, but then eight kitties was too many and she had to go to the hospital so now here was this lovely kitteh up for adoption. : ( They had a few kittens too,but I noticed older kitties are cheaper.

Anyhoo, I was there to try to find something for maggie to use as a step up to the side of the tub. Lately she's been acting like she'd just rather not have to jump up there to get to her food. but the dog will eat the kitty food if we leave it on the floor. So I found a short-ish kitty cave/scratchy thing for her to use as a step. She seems please with it, although I think everyone is too large to actually fit inside it, but that's not what it's there for, so I don't care so much.

was just looking at Cake Wrecks and they have a Muppet (not-a-wreck) cake. I think on Sundays they're trying to be nice... for contrast.

Anyhoo, that reminded me that the Muppets (the Electric Mayhem in particular) came up backstage the other night and I was dubbed an "expert". I blame RTO as usual, he's been all about the Youtube things lately.

I had read this article recently, though I can't remember if it ran in the paper here, or if I saw it online. did you know, Disney now owns (most of, according to geekdad) the Muppets?

I kinda remember watching The Muppet show and my mom and dad particularly liked Swedish Chef impressions.

um, I'll just sit here quietly in my corner....

last night I was complaining to RTO because I just knew my foot was going to be black and blue today and it was very sore. I got stomped on by somebody backstage and she fell over. so today she wasn't there because she dislocated her shoulder when she fell. Anyhoo, it happened in such a way (in the doorway between the dressing room and the green room) that I don't think anyone noticed my part in it, or if they did they didn't say anything about it. They were all "oh, she fell over in the doorway and is lucky she didn't hit her head" so, I'm not going to complain about my foot.

just for the record....

I'm going to bed now. yes, it's before one o'clock. (barely, but still, it's usually, two)

suppose I should post something...

had a quiet weekend at home, watched Pan's Labyrinth. mostly amused by this exchange afterwards.

RTO: so what did you think?

MK: well, it was good, but sad.

RTO: why do you say that?

MK: um, cause she died at the end.

RTO: no she didn't.



MK: okay. fine.

How to write your own G&S operetta

RTO just said something about patter songs and that reminded me that I heard Anna Russel's bit about writing your own Gilbert and Sullivan show yesterday. So I found it on youtube

not one of my better ideas

RTO: there's an episode of Fringe on the DVR...

MK: yeah, I figure we'll watch it this weekend.



RTO: I'm probably going to have to work at some point this weekend.


RTO: I need to get a project id so I know who to bill for troubleshooting their #$@%! server.

MK: oh, yeah, i was trying to be funny tonight and dropped an f-bomb and then realized it was to a minister's daughter. so it didn't go over so well.


MK: well see, there's these two prop ladies and the last two nights they kept talking to me about the pencil that's going to be on the desk and where it will be and blah, blah, blah. It had never been a problem, there has always been a pencil there. So of course tonight, the pencil was gone.


MK: So I'm telling this girl about that and I wind it up with " Where was the #$#!$ pencil!?"


MK: she didn't even crack a smile, so I apologized.


that's usually one of my more humorous bits cause nobody expects it.

RTO:That sounds like a blog post..

MK: *sigh*

MSNBC still having scheduling problems...

This time with a Sarah Palin bio.




MK: Martin Gramatica? didn't he play for the Cowboys?

RTO: I think you're confused.



MK: wikipedia says otherwise. "On December 3, in his debut with the Dallas Cowboys, Gramatica kicked the game-winning field goal from 46-yards out against the New York Giants, leaving 00:01 on the clock and the Dallas team celebrating on the sideline." see, I remember that... all the interviews with him after the game.

the Cowboys have a Monday night game this week, so I won't get to see it. (I'm not kooky enough to record it)

Roxie cave

This is her preferred sleeping spot at night. or really just about any time someone is in bed, I've noticed she goes there when I nap. yeah, there's all kinds of crap down there.... lessee... a box of tile left over from the bathroom remodel...a magazine... a storage box o' wrapping paper and yes... a hammer.

here's a close up of the hammer...

that's RTO's side of the bed, and I really don't know how it ended up down there, but I don't have the heart to move it just yet either. thanks, grandma z.

troubled kitteh dreams...

Carlos was napping next to me on the couch here and just jerked himself awake and hissed. I've never seen another cat do that, but this is maybe the second or third time Carlos' has. I wonder if it's because he's from the farm. I think kittehs must dream.

what did I get into?

Both cats have thoroughly sniffed my right elbow since I got home. maggie even made that face. twice.
