Spent 7 hrs. at the hospital today with step-dad for a same-day surgery. Should have been less time, but the surgeon was late. Woke up at 1:30 and couldn't go back to sleep. Don't know how long I'll make it tonight, but I'll try! :D

This tale was in LoveMeow#158 this week.  Such exquisite ear-tufties on Flipper, who I thought the LM recounting said was, or began as, a she.
Wheels like these are what I/we so despurrately wished to get for our late dearly loved Cheeky after she had her stroke in 1993. But that was almost before the Internet, & they weren't as readily available then. Coulda bought her some more time with some ....

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/pygm y-jerboa-video.html1:09 world's cutest mouse

Pygmy Jerboa is one of the smallest mammals in the world. This wee critter tipped scales at 32 grams, just over an ounce. In Kazakhstan, this little rodent is so adored, it's featured on postal stamps.... -- speaking of cordless mice --

Am thinking the children of serving British forces personnel in the Middle East would pick up jerboas as pets.  Someone who signed the comments under this vid, said the one her children collected was called "Jemmy" & lived with them, adored as referred to above, for years.

A) Why the hell didn't my high school have a well-funded robotics club?
B) I love how the cat tore shiate up like a cat out of hell when it got its new set of wheels.

Yay !! I found Caturday !... Great to be here.. got lots done this week... the east coast storm rolled through last night about 1am.. 10 minutes of hard rain, moderate winds..didn't even knock over my trash cans.. others weren't so lucky, according to the news... Fred had retired to his bunk.. checked the monitor and he was laying on his back, totally zonked.... and we are back to the cold again... I will be so glad when spring gets here.. when it gets cold, the Itis boys come calling.. most of the time it,s Art, with an occasional visit from Burse.... one of the 'benefits' of getting older.... I can deal with it.

It has been a cold and miserable day here. Blowing snow with 30 to 40 mph winds for a temperature of about 2. Jack loves it, I swear the colder the better for him, and Gremie just watches him out the window with the occasional "meow". I also just got my water back after a water main break about 6 hours ago.I had to melt icecubes for everyone's water dish.

1:53  no clue why stupid hoo-mon put hedgehog in pan of water. Not fair!

brap, one wonders your relative age.  Thought it only high schools of this day & age even have robotics clubs, let alone well funded ones.

Good on the kids for buying wheels for Flipper!

Yay! It is Caturday! Gosh what a looong week! One of my students admitted to cutting herself..her arm looked like Edward Scissors hand had been at work. I cannot tell you how sad it made me. And then, my long term sub position ends next Tuesday. Big sigh. I love the staff, but running the in school suspension unit. No. Not only do I see nothing but the trouble makers, but I have to be stern all day long! And that is not my purrsonality! I want to talk and joke and just, be someone they can talk to, you know?

So stressed. I came home for lunch and spent most of it snuggling with kitteh.
