All cats are murderers. Or didn't you know that? You should read The Oatmeal more.

Whoops. The power just went out.

 

Good thing the car was out of the garage. I have to leave for the dentist in three minutes, and we’ve mislaid the door keys.

That was some good luck! 

 

Is it stormy/windy there? :wacko:

 

Coffee...

Hooooraaay for hayfever! You get a runny nose, your eyes start to tear and your head hurts like hell.

 

If YOU like hayfever, send this message to all of your friends!

 

If not, rest assured - I don't like hayfever either. *sneeze*

Well, tonight at work two bums got into a fight over who had done more prison time, no lie, and one of them stabbed the other in the leg. Because that's a good thing to stab someone over, right? Man, I done more prison time than you! Nuh uh! Uh huh! Nuh uh! *stab*

 

People are dumb as dumb can get...

 

My faith in human nature has been restored.

Murphy's Law is recursive.  Washing your car to make it rain doesn't work.

But saying 'well, it isn't raining, might as well wash the car' does

 

The trick is to be happy with either one - which is why you will get freezing rain. ::P:

Oh yeahhhh, wind ...

 

Anyhow, I have reached the dentist. The commute took a lot longer than usual owing to construction.

Neither does washing your cat, I feel I should add.

Except for Midnight - that cat, a fluffy black Angora, would hide in the bathroom until you were in the tub, then jump in with you... All the better to cover your entire body with damp kitty fur, (She would go from big and fluffy to being a purring wet rat.)

 

The Auld Grump - apparently this behavior is endemic to Angoras.

It is one of their methods of keeping cool, Angoras are notorious for being sweaters.

So, I'm pretty sure I got a phishing scam phone call.

Reason 1: It was a recording

Reason 2: The beginning of said recording was cut off in the voice mail

Reason 3: The recording told me that "the local COPS" would be looking for me. Maybe it's just me, but 'local Police' or 'local law enforcement' sounds more professional, and would be the proper terminology.

Reason 4: Before I take any legal action, I should call <their number>. Lady, you just told me the cops are looking for me, the FIRST call I'm making is to a lawyer.

Reason 5: (Actually the most important)  I haven't done anything wrong.

 

 

Just in case, though: When you guys bake me a cake with a file in it, I like chocolate.

This one?

 

"We have received a notification regarding your tax filings from the headquarters which will get expired in next 24 working hours. And once it gets expired after that, you will be taken into custody by the local cops as there are more serious allegations pressed on your name at this moment. We would request you to get back to us so that we can discuss about this case before taking any legal action against you."

 

You will be happy to know it was featured on PolitiFact. ::P:

 

*EDIT* 111 arrests have been made... of the people making the calls. ::D:

Are you certain that you don't have a Khanjira, Kaladrax or other suitable mini ready for the 7day challenge?

As a matter a fact, I have Maál and Khanjira, I already painted Kaladrax.

However I do not do the 7 days challenges, I want to take my time painting them.::P:

 

I will probably work on my Pirate Queen Bust, Crypt Terrain and Nagendra Warrior first before I decide what to paint next.

There are many possibilities.
