For the love of God, entertain me.

This has been the shittiest week ever and so instead of publishing a real post today I’m just sharing a video of my cat (Ferris Mewler) who is currently practicing rolling over.  Because cats doing dog tricks make me feel less stabby.

FERRIS, ROLL OVER:

Also, spellcheck just tried to autocorrect “less stabby” to “less shabby“.

Oh spellcheck, it’s like you’ve never even met me.

We were in heaven at the prospect of our dream coming true. He had a fantastic chance of being offered the job, too! But then we found out how much of a pay cut he would be taking… HOLY SHIT BALLS, they pay their teachers less than Starbucks pays their managers. Seriously folks, we were floored! There was absolutely no way that we would be able to afford the move with that… or start saving to buy a freaking out!

    In one week our dreams were coming true and then crushed. It was our chance to get out of here. Now we’re stuck. I am so freaking sad that there is no word to adequately describe it.

    I too had a bad week. Oh it started so well sure. I put down a slave revolt on my planet, Mingo if you must know. Claimed another planet for the empire. Things were looking up. Then this chap in a blue box stopped by for tea and a beheading. The silly bugger stopped the beheading, stole my best new planet and then set my slaves free. I tell you its hard some days trying to be a ruthless emperor. Sigh!

    Here’s hoping next week brings blue sky’s or taxidermy or blue sky’s and taxidermy or perhaps a cat enabled can opener or at least feral pet rocks. Feral because domestic pet rocks are just too lame.

    Somebody already shared the link I wanted to put here (The World’s Most Awkward Taxidermy: http://io9.com/the-worlds-most-awkward-taxidermy-509470092), but it really is pretty cool so I’m mentioning it again. Seconding it? Anyway, hope the bad week at least ends on a high note – happy last day of the week!

  118. Funny story: I had to write about lingerie for work (retail copywriter) and in my research (because I know nothing about lingerie) I kept hitting NSFW websites that I was getting flagged for! It’s like they didn’t want me to write a good “how to buy lingerie” article.

  122. Quickest way I know to cheer myself up is to bring something new into the house and watch the cats explore it. Boxes are always new and amazing. To really step up the entertainment, get a live crawfish at the grocery store. Hours of kitty bafflement right there.

  126. I have had a pretty shitty week, too! Here’s to things getting. . . . well. . . . less stabby! Wish I could send you a video of my cat. She came to my door about a year ago and asked to come in, so she has rewarded me with being the only cat I have ever owned who fetches. She not only likes to fetch, she is pretty damn insistent about it! A toy, a bottle cap, a piece of paper, she doesn’t care what it is!

  127. “Stabby” isn’t a word yet? Didn’t you coin that phrase eons ago? Other bloggers use it all the time. I just read it in another blog yesterday. We all know you started saying it first, though, no one’s pretending you didn’t.

    Congratulations on being a major player in the EVOLUTION OF LANGUAGE.

    And Ferris is cute.

    Jenny – hugs from afar – which makes your week less shitty because if they were in person – that would be bad for both our anxieties right?

    Anyway – Tomorrow starts a new week – wash this one away (snow cone anyone? with TEQUILA?) and look forward to another opportunity.

    I got together with a couple friends last night and we all had supremely coprophagic weeks. Bad mojo all around. I’m too hot and drugged up on a combo of antihistimines, decongestants, and pain killers to entertain you, though. It took me 5 minutes to type this. You’re definitely not alone, though.

  139. Glad to hear I am not alone with the shitty week. Although mine became even shittier tonight–and I mean that literally. My poor dog exploded in his kennel. It was like what I would imagine a crime scene to be but instead of blood it was poo smattered (is that a word?) throughout.
