"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" -- Winnie the Pooh

Slowly acclimatizing New Beta to his water. His big siblings are so far oblivious
So far he's still pretty uncertain about the change of scenery. - lris from Android
The office cat at Gypsy's vet is 22 years old. O.o #goodadvertising
Impressive! - RepoRat
There are also office parakeets, parrot, lizard, and two more cats who "tend to stay in the back." This vet is half zoo. - lris from Android
Office pets are awesome. My doctors office has an office dog, but she's kind of aloof to me. Still makes me happy to see. - Heather

First massage in 5 weeks. That was intense.
epsom salt bath time? - RepoRat
That's a good idea - lris from Android
I should do one too. Travel does not agree with my shoulders. - RepoRat
Stupid bodies. - lris from Android
So fragile. - RepoRat
Gypsy got her break trimmed yesterday. Today she's hobbling around like a newly declawed cat, poor thing.
Hello weekend. Let's be friends.
After this morning's seminar, I think I'm now certified to handle change. Bring it on!
Yes, but are you a change AGENT? Because, really, what good are you if you're not? - Catherine Pellegrino
How did that never become "Changent?" - Steele Lawman
We took a test. I tested as not a change agent. I'm one of the people who comes next and figures out how to make the change go well. - lris
Oh, I see: you're on the cleanup crew. Gotcha. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
Legally I think that *would* make you a change agent, with the 'change agent' as change principal - Pete
I am also a "problem solver" rather than a "fighter" or "retreater" - lris
A fixer. Or, the person who knows how to hide the bodies -- even in plain sight. - Julian
Was this a Buzzfeed quiz? - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Buzzfeed would have made the quiz a lot easier to take. This one was weirdly complicated. - lris
Everyone on Greys Anatomy is having a worse day than I am. Some of them are even dead.
Season finale? When most deaths happen? (We watch GA on DVD a year back...which means we now own the first 10 seasons...and Shondaland sure does go for the bloody when it's time to make sure we stick around for the next season.) - Walt Crawford
Happy Birthday to ToddlerX!
Happy birthday, little guy! - Catherine Pellegrino
Happy Birthday namesake! :) - Pete
happy birthday toddlerx! - Sir Shuping is just sir
Happy birthday! - Maitani
happy birthday! - ellbeecee
Yes! Happy birthday to him! - Marianne
Happy Birthday!! - Hedgehog
Yay! - Steele Lawman
Happy birthday! - Larua Boats
Thank you so much! #toddlerx is now. Mr. 3. So far today we have both had tantrums by way of celebration. - laura x
Happy, happy birthday Mr. 3 and may the tantrums result in useful purges of all that is overwhelming. - Galadriel C.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MALCOLM! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Inspired by Catherine, I'm saying "no" to attending a meeting over lunch today. #rebel
Sometimes one thing I really like about the cat is his utter disinterest in office politics.
cancelled meetings are the best meetings
I just got one of those too, my face was like :-D - Deborah Fitchett
My grandfather marched to Selma with Dr King. I'm glad and proud that he did, and I also wish things were better now than they are.
Wow. What a legacy! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Does he have photos? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Not that I know of. He just sent us a slightly abridged transcript of a long letter he wrote to his parents just after having completed the march. It ends "I was ashamed for America on Tuesday, ashamed that it was necessary to march in protest against police brutality and on behalf of civil rights. But frightening as it was, there is no place on God’s green earth that I would have traded for the privilege of being in the march in Selma, Alabama." - lris
That is fantastic! Again, what a legacy! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Has he seen the movie? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
That is something to be proud of. - Eric - ill subliminal
Also, things are better than they were. What's frustrating is that our culture can't seem to recognize that we have so far to go. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Or that it's so important to our maturation and survival. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
I don't know if he's seen the movie. And your last comment reminds me of another passage in Papa's letter where he talks about realizing that there is "profound sense" to the statement that "the Negro will give America back her soul" (in 1960s language) because of the way people were talking about why they were involved in the march. I think he was talking about exactly that maturation and survival. - lris
Wow. what an incredible connection. - laura x from iPhone
I think I just sent my first ever "IMPORTANT" email. It's all downhill from here.
Now that I've realized that Gypsy needs her beak trimmed I'm all "Oh no, I hope she survives until her vet appointment on Friday." Me and my hyperactive imagination...
Meanwhile, I'm ricocheting between "I'll learn so much from an actual avian vet" and "the vet'll think I totally neglect my bird because her beak is overgrown." Me and my hyperactive imagination... - lris
remembering Mr3's musing before Christmas that "This potty train is too fast." A poignant thought on the difficulty of potty training when you don't even know the word "training."
Yep, that was me putting out the trash and being all oblivious about the calendar.
I hate naps.
#Mr3 has his own hatbeard now.

hatbeards are the new neck gaiters, I hear - maʀtha
Clipping Gypsy's nails for the first time also let me guage first hand the strength of her bite.
ow? - RepoRat
She not only bit. She ground her jaws back and fourth to emphasize her point. At length. Now she is plotting my death. I may need to move to a safe-house. - lris from Android
owwwwwwwww - RepoRat
Tried my hand at photo retouching for the first time (for a precious photo of a colleague and her dad). It's not perfect by any means, but it's better!

In related news, finally wrapping my head around GIMP. - lris
My body says "bedtime!" My calendar says "evening reference shift." Hmmmm
Heaven help me, I'm applying a whitening strip to my teeth. I really have gone over to the dark side, haven't I.
Over the braces? - Meg VMeg from Android
My braces are Invisalign, so I can take them off. :-) - lris
Selfie Sticks, Lactation Positive Popes, free porn, AND REMOVABLE BRACES???? the world just doesn't make sense anymore #kidstoday - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Yes. Yes, you have. - laura x from iPhone
True true, to both Laura and moto. - lris
Rough day. I think I'll have cheese and crackers for supper.
OH "I'm a people person, I just don't like people."
I have diagnosed the problem. There have been far too few kittens in my day so far. Rectifying over lunch http://new.livestream.com/tinykit...

kitteh! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
you don't want me to get anything else done today - MoTO: #TeamMarina
kitteh naps! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Come sit with me, MoTO, and we can get nothing done, but do it together. - lris
that works - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Oh, and pass the chocolate. - lris
certainly. coffee? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Oh, yes please. - lris
ooh, kittens. - ellbeecee
I paid the price in blood for forgetting to clip my toenails before walking to work. #notworthit #ow
Little by little, checking off the tests I'm supposed to get done. Today: genome sequencing. No biggie, right?
neato - Meg VMeg
What services/vendors are you using? - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
At this moment I totally believe that my teeth are literally crushing my jaw bone to death.
Found coffee beans in the freezer. Crisis averted.
