oh jeez.  Just you mentioning that was enough for Interplanet Janet to pop into my head.  Thanks for that.......

SHARE MY SUFFERING! (...till the suffrage)

 

They say our solar system is centered 'round the sun,
Nine planets, large and small, parading by.
But somewhere out in space,
There's another shining face
That you might see some night up in the sky.

 

Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl,
A solar system Ms. from a future world,
She travels like a rocket with her comet team
And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen,
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen.

 

She's been to the Sun, it's a lot of fun,
It's a hot-spot, It's a gas!
Hydrogen and helium in a big, bright, glowing mass.

It's a star, it's a star! So Janet got an autograph!

 

Mercury was near the Sun so Janet stopped by,
But the mercury on Mercury was much too high, so
Janet split for Venus but on Venus she found
She couldn't see a thing for all the clouds around.

 

Earth looked exciting, kind of green and inviting,
So Janet thought she'd give it a go.
But the creatures on that planet looked so very weird to Janet,
She didn't even dare to say hello.

It's a bird, it's a plane! Why, it must be a UFO, but it was:

 

Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl,
A solar system Ms. from a future world,
She travels like a rocket with her comet team
And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen,
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen.

 

Mars is red and Jupiter's big
And Saturn shows off its rings.
Uranus is built on a funny tilt
And Neptune is its twin,
And Pluto, little Pluto, is the farthest planet from our Sun.

 

They say our solar system is not alone in space.
The Universe has endless mystery.
Some future astronaut
May find out that what he'd thought
Was a shooting star instead turned out to be...

 

Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl,
A solar system Ms. from a future world,
She travels like a rocket with her comet team
And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen,
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen.

Cat is home. Dental surgery went well. She should have no more problems there. We also got the confirmation that our sweet little girl has cancer, the inoperable kind. We will know more next week, like if there is a treatment, but either way her remaining time with us will be short.  Forgive me if I'm a little more cynical than usual in the coming weeks. 

 

 

Well that's bad news.

I'm sorry to hear that, let's hope they can ease the pain and maybe prolong her quality of life.

Bah! I'm a native French speaker, and today is Mercury day (i.e. Mercredi).

 

I blame the Romans.

My Girl and Oldest Vixen will return tomorrow evening from Norway where they visited Youngest Vixen.

 

Today I made myself Kare Daging ( Indonesian Stewed Beef Curry) from the Crockpot.

In lesser news, I discovered a tick on my leg this afternoon, thinking about it, it has been there half an hour maximum, not sure if it bit me, I could get it off very easily, there was no blood and it wasn't swollen yet.

Still, calling the Doctor tomorrow morning to see if treatment is necessary or not.

I was glued to the TV during the 80s. I do not recall Interplanet Janet.

And having watched it on YouTube? Still don’t remember it.

 

Strangely tho, I recognized Janet. Maybe I saw that somewhere else as an easter egg r something. 

It was on mostly during the 70s and 80s during Saturday morning cartoons on ABC.

 

CBS and NBC had their own things that weren't as catchy.

Oh, I remember Schoolhouse Rock. Watched it all the time. It’s just Janet doesn’t stir any memories. 
 

Now I’m hankerin’ for a hunk of cheese.
