Thursday This n That

Laying in bed last night I thought of some really awesome things to put in today's this-n-that post.  Bet you can guess what happened to those ideas.  Blerg.

I want to pour myself some more coffee, but I know if I go anywhere near the kitchen the cat will meow at me incessantly to be fed, but it isn't time to feed her yet and I don't want to encourage her bad behavior.  So here I sit with my mug almost empty.  For another twenty-thirty minutes.

I dreamed an entire episode of Grey's Anatomy the other night.  I wasn't in the dream, I was just watching it like it was on TV, but a full-sized, 360 TV.  This is weird because I stopped watching Grey's Anatomy years ago.  I think I had it because of the commercials for that new thing the gal who played Christina Yang in in. 

Technology is awesome.  I read a news story this morning about a woman who'd been murdered in 1981 and they finally identified the body using new DNA technology.  I hope they can finally catch her killer.

My husband took pity on me and brought me coffee.  Kira doesn't bother him in the morning, so he can go in the kitchen any time he wants to.  Lucky duck.

It's supposed to get up to 78F here today.  Time to break out the shorts.  Unfortunately, it's also supposed to be windy, so that shoots out fishing. Not that I really have time for fishing right now.  Busy busy.

The other night we were awakened at 3:30am by the most horrible noises in the backyard.  My guess was that it was either raccoons or foxes making whoopie.  And after a bit of research, the winner is: Foxes gekkering.  From Popular Science: "'s a guttural chattering with occasional yelps and howls, like an ack-ack-ack-ackawoooo-ack-ack-ack. Gekkering is heard amongst adults in aggressive encounters (of which there are many; red foxes are highly territorial) and also amongst young kits playing (or play-fighting)."  It's kinda freaky.

And that's it for me.  Time to feed the cat.

  1. I sleep with a small notebook under the pillow, or on the bed next to me. I have a pen with a light on the writing end for those middle of the night light bulp moments. But yeah, I know what you mean. Foxes are...weird. Cute. But weird. Sorry about the fishing. :/ Adidas will randomly start yowling in some other room. I think it's our ghost cat annoying her. And that's all pretty random This-n-That stuff but I'll endeavor to actually do some in the correct format.

    Mother Nature has a bad case of PMS. Just sayin'. Slept with the windows open last night. We're getting a hard freeze Saturday night. WTH?

    I had more than a few daffodils this spring, which sort of makes up for the lack of wisteria blooms as a result of Mother Nature's ill-timed tantrums.

    I have a black cat in my current WIP. His name is Lucifer. He is full of catitude and the heroine is impressed that the hero can stare down the cat. ;)

    I love ceiling fans. I don't love dusting them but I love the way they create a breeze. I can close my eyes and pretend to be outside for a few minutes, no matter the outside temp.

    The feral cats I feed don't know what to think about the possum that occasionally appears to steal the food I put out for them. They sit up on the wooden bench on my porch staring at it. On a side note, possum are freaking ugly. With teeth.

    I have ten contest books to read. Sadly, I can't get them in audio. :/ My eyes are going to hate me. Happily, the one I started last night shows a lot of promise!

    And...that's it for me.
