"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here" (413)813-7036
Thank you FF. I did a search for Roku and found a thread where a bunch of you commented. I'm now confident in getting my parents a Roku for Christmas. #SeekAndYeShallFFind
link? my seach fu is weak tonight. :( - Big Joe Silence
thanks! :) looking at stuff like this for my dad. - Big Joe Silence
How do you deal with plants and cats? We've got a plant lover and most of the plants in the house aren't safe for her.
For me I had to decide to keep only cat-safe plants (and I do my best to keep them out of their reach). - vicster: hon. canadian
We had to hang up the majority of ours when one of my cats developed a taste for them. After a while, most could go back down, except her favorite spider plants. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
I even tried fake plants but my cat dug in the fake moss, destroyed the styrofoam blocks holding them in the pots, and shredded the fabric. I gave up on indoor plants altogether when I had that cat. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm hoping getting rid of most of the unsafe plants (and hiding the rest in secure rooms, like the bedrooms) will be an option. I've got a 5 page list of safe plants, we should be able to find something there. But there's resistance to changing things. - Heather
cats > plants. cats get spider plants, because ... I give up. Our spider plants look like crap. Other plants were able to be kept on high shelves, but now that we haz kittehs, we had to give up plants again. Flowers too. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Most of Twitter is fine, but the people acting all holier-then-thou about the protesters (You aren't accomplishing anything, justice isn't inside a Dollar Tree) are going to drive me batshit. These people are frustrated beyond belief. They were told to let the system do it's thing. They did, it failed. What do you think is going to happen?
I know I've been so frustrated and angry that I've stopped caring about being constructive, and that's nothing compared to what's happening and been happening in Ferguson and across the country. You can't stay calm and logical when it accomplishes nothing and things are terrible. - Heather
The sad thing is the destruction is what will be talked about and shown on loop, rather than the issues at hand. - Johnny
It is sad, because victims are expected to be perfect and if they aren't they probably deserve whatever happens to them. People hate to have to look at shades of grey when they want black and white (pun? no?) answers. - Heather
I just think it's easier for the news to show a visual rather than having to try and explain a concept. The worst thing that could have happened (for the news and the politicians) is if the protests were perfect and calm. A burning car can explain away an awful lot of nuance. - Johnny
And people will think that what they see is proportional to what happens. If there are 100 pictures of the same burning cop car and 2 pictures of 2 different massive peaceful protests, it looks like burning cars are a bigger issue. So of course Twitter is full of people bitching about burning cars and the story isn't allowed to be any deeper than that. - Heather
To be fair, there is plenty burning right now. I wouldn't necessarily call those setting fires as protesters though. And I agree, there is reason for rage. I wish the way they released this information would have allowed for time to apply an organized, peaceful organization of protest. - Eric - Regulate
I agree that a lot of the stuff going on right now is not ok, but it doesn't make all the other not ok stuff that has happened justified. I also think you can't treat people like enemy combatants and expect them not to become that. If the cops and city had prepared to facilitate peaceful protests and worked with local groups I think things would be going a lot differently. Then again, if the police were willing to do that I think the entire area would be much different. - Heather
I'm not saying the rioting is excusing the other not ok stuff... but it certainly lessens the impact right at this moment in terms of narrative. From even before the decision, the narrative those people in power who corrupted this system were looking for was "See, this violent young black man came from a collective of violent young black men". The second there was trouble, the spin... more... - Johnny from iPhone
I'm not just 100% ok with Christmas music, I'm excited about it. Who am I? When did this happen? O.o
because its actually cold enough for Christmas music now! - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'm right there with you on this. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
The past couple of years I've felt the same way. Not sure what shifted. - Corinne L
There was a Kitten Nursery dinner last night to thank the volunteers and workers for the first year in operation. They sent the speech out by email. The end made me a touch misty eyed.
"Thank you all for your hours spent weighing, feeding, hydrating, and cuddling those precious, screaming little souls. Thank you for loving animals enough to put your hearts on the line for kittens who might not make it through the night. And thank you for rejoicing with us at the sight of your favorites on the daily “adopted animals” list." I look forward to seeing you back here next summer in your fashionable smock, gloved to the wrists, screaming kitten in one hand and food-filled syringe in the other. You are my heroes. - Heather
Chris let me decide if we were going to watch the tear-your-heart out season finally of Supernatural. I finally pushed play, cried through Carry On My Wayward Son.....
His mom came home, we had to stop watching. ARG! - Heather
Mom yelled at me because I did yoga.
She hurt herself doing it.... - Chris Topher
Heather did...hurt quite a lot too :P She was quite sore this morning. - Chris Topher
I'm in PT for my shoulders and I did table: I shouldn't have done it. :( - Heather
So she yelled at you because you OVERdid yoga. Take it easy there, sacredcowgirl! - Spidra Webster
zoinks. i hope you start feeling better soon. i'm sure Nurse Chris will take good care. - Big Joe Silence
Cat owner achievement unlocked! -Clean up cat puke.
You should get a dog to take care of that. - Stephan from iPhone
Not sure a dog licking the power-strip would be a great idea... x_x - Heather
Probably not! - Stephan from iPhone
When the cat jumps off things, she does a little meow as she lands. It sounds like a squeaky toy getting hit.
It's the kitty way of saying "BooYAH!" - Spidra Webster
My throats been dry all day and I've been coughing for a couple hours. *crosses fingers* *throws salt over shoulder* *knocks on wood* *sacrifices a goat*
*crosses toes* - Spidra Webster
you forgot to shake the chicken bones. very important step. - Big Joe Silence
Maybe that's why I'm all sinusy today. :( - Heather
*Language Warning*
My goddam absentee ballot never got here. I sent for it early enough, but nope! I don't get to vote in one of the most important elections with ballot questions I'm fucking invested in. I'm ripshit. - Heather
In college I loved getting absentee ballots, I had plenty of time to look up candidates and see what the ballot questions were really about. But screw me getting to vote in a midterm. It's just a young(ish) person who actually wants to vote in an election that gets abysmal turn out. Whoopdyfuckingdo. - Heather
Does your county allow for provisional ballots? If you're able to travel tomorrow, you might still be able to vote, depending on how they handle that. - Jennifer Dittrich
It's about an hour home, so I don't think it's really feasible. :( - Heather
Yes, you can still vote provisionally and I think you can do it at any polling place. However, to be sure DO call your Registrar of Voters. What state/county are you in? - Spidra Webster
Also, if you call the campaign headquarters of the party you're voting most for, I'm pretty sure they'd be happy to arrange a ride to the polls if you need it. - Spidra Webster
They never got my absentee request. - Heather
Over 2,000 words, but feeling like I can only write in bursts. I thought I had this more mentally planned than I do. - Heather
I'm almost at 4k words and Chris is "going all Tiger Mom" so I can finish before the new WoW expansion comes out. - Heather
I may have playfully whacked her with a bamboo backscratcher >.> - Chris Topher
Well... I'm 10% through my word count.... O.o - Heather
Just cuz I can, I've got a donation page for #NaNoWriMo. If you're the first to donate, I'll name a character after you (a nice one, promise).
#SaturdayFF I once sprained my neck. I was embarrassed about how it happened, so I told people about the actual time I fell off a horse. At PT I told them about spraining my neck, and forgot that falling off a hose wasn't the real way it happened.
When she's cute, she's very very cute and when she's bad she's *&@%$^&%#$&*(^)!*&@$^# CAT!
I'm uncomfortable... But the cat's sleeping on me, so...
Being owned by a cat... there's nothing quite like it. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Right now I'm navigating the mouse around Noah's butt. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I think it's funny how people allow themselves to be dominated by their pets in that way. Toxoplasmosis is real, y'all! - Spidra Webster
I do draw the line. Sometimes. Rarely. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I shifted and she put her paw on my arm. I'm a sap! But I eventually did get comfortable and now she's on the couch by herself. - Heather

Tom Menino, Former Boston Mayor, Dies At Age 71 « CBS Boston
"Former Boston Mayor Tom Menino, who held the office longer than anyone in the city’s history, died Thursday after a long battle with cancer. He was 71 years old." - Heather from Bookmarklet
WTF. He was supposed to keep going strong until he was 130 and decided it was time to shove off because he was bored. :( - Heather
This is the last week of the Kitten ICU, but they have so few kittens they don't need any of us to come in. I guess technically I'm not a volunteer anymore. :(
Kitty is getting really close to drawing blood (she's started playing with hands) because she needs more consistent play. This is why I didn't want a kitten.
Chris just pulled the cat out of the rabbit cage...
And he keeps chasing the bunny away from the scratching board... - Heather
Are the animals confused or are we? - Heather
As long as the cat is t trying to eat the bunnies, you should be okay. - Katy S from iPhone
It seems we are the confused ones.

"31. You'll meet other women who understand you, "Get you" and think you're perfectly normal, but only on the Internet and they'll all live far away from you." - Heather from Bookmarklet
She got up, so I put the iPad on my lap. She meowed at me and demanded her spot back. - Heather
This is the gist of the relationship. Bunbuns does not give one single solitary frac.
Yeah, I'm going to be that kind of cat person.
<3 - Alix May
Finally got to meet the fur baby. Totally in love
She likes the bird toy I got her, but I haven't gotten a pic yet. - Heather

The gorram raccoons are too gorram curious!!
Ain't it the truth. - Spidra Webster
3 were at the front of the house. I opened the window to scare them, but one thought it was a invitation inside. Then I threw a cup of water at them and one came back and looked in the window on the door. - Heather
I'm still kind of devastated I don't get to foster a cat. But after my shift someone asked me to spend time with a super shy cat in one of the free roam rooms and he was really in to me scratching his neck, so that felt pretty good.
I'm sorry. But I'm glad you are helping the shy cat to socialize. - Spidra Webster
I'm sorry that you cannot foster, but it sounds like you still are making a big difference for the kitties. - vicster: hon. canadian
