While I have an actual post to make sooner or later (a couple days ago was one year since I had my gastric bypass surgery), I've been having a hard time getting an actual post out. So for now, some random things:

Who knew cats like watermelon?



And even better: Amazon.com is starting to offer one hour delivery from restaurants! If that starts up in this area, I'll be nearly to the point of spending my money no where else.

Don't you hate it when your cat shoves her butt into your face? Wouldn't you like it more if it were all sparkly and pretty?



Well then do I have the link for you! Twinkle Tush, bling for your cat's butt! It dangles from your cat's tail to cover their tushes with the bling of your choice.

Luckily (or should that be unfortunately?) Twinkle Tush is actually just a gag gift, but the human version is not!

Surprisingly work safe(?) image back here. )

Japanese people get the best commercials. Remember the commercial with the giant cat carrying the business man to work? Now Japanese people get a Pizza Hut run by cats! (Sort of, a what-if.)

What if cats ran Pizza Hunt.

The best of the four, in my opinion:

Pizza cat-o!

Edit: Oh, there are more than four! Check them all out here.

Three things make a post!

1) Game of Thrones, told with pugs:



The how they made it is a good watch, too.

2) By way of [livejournal.com profile] donnaimmaculata: Critique my dick pic. This is a more interesting site than it would sound on the surface, as the guy critiques the whole photo, not just the dangly bits. In his own words: "friendly reminder that i’m interested in the quality of the photograph rather than the dick itself." (Edit: I forgot to mark this as NWS, but I hope that would be kind of obvious. :) )

3) The scariest teddy bear ever. The animated toy sold for $712. It actually is pretty darned creepy (though not $712 creepy).

Linked because the sample image is somewhat disturbing.

For [livejournal.com profile] kishenehn and the rest of you dog owners, remember to always obey all signs when out with your dog.

thistlechaser: (Angry scribble cat)
Not all dog owners are bad people. If you are a good dog owner or if you know one? YAY! Thank you! This is about all the bad ones.

My apartment is on the ground floor. Our windows are nearly floor to ceiling. The bottom of the window is about knee-high. My cat's favorite place is sitting in the window.

Unfortunately, being knee-high to the ground, every damned dog sees her. In the two weeks I've been here:

1) A dog tried to climb through my window to attack her. The owner watched. Laughing. He didn't call the dog off until I went to the window and asked him to.

2) Countless owners use Ellie to test the sit/stay of their dogs. Bringing them closer and closer, making them sit and stay (or trying to). This usually ends up with them lunging at her.

3) So many dogs off-leash (all dogs are supposed to be leashed), who run right up to the window, barking at her.

Bonus #4: Parents who bring their toddlers right to the window to see the "kitty". Hello, I'm sitting RIGHT HERE. I don't exactly like you and your kids looking right in at me.

I've never seen Ellie puffed up and hissing until we moved here. Poor girl is going to have a heart attack. I feel like putting a big sign in my window: "My cat is not entertainment for your dog." I suppose that might be unfriendly of me though...

I think I've created a monster, in more ways than one.

My little feeder attracts so many birds! There are four perches, and depending on species and gender, sometimes they will share a perch (but most often they not only want their own perch, they try to drive birds off the other two nearest them, too). Usually there are 20 or more trying to get onto the feeder.

The downside of this is they eat a lot of seed. A lot. A whole bag per week, and a bag costs $25. That's a darned lot of money for wild birds that really could feed themselves. (I have to feed them one of the more expensive foods. Since I live in an apartment, it has to be something they won't toss out and make a mess with, or something they have to shell and make a mess with the leftovers. )

The bird seed attracts squirrels. Nearly from the beginning, they seemed to understand about windows and had no fear of Ellie. I bet you can guess how crazy this makes her. View from our window:


If not for the glass, I could reach out and touch the squirrels from inside, that's how close they are. That's how they sleep, too -- all four limbs hanging down and their heads resting on the surface. (Them in that pose makes Ellie especially crazy.)

I only confirmed the third piece to this ecosystem situation tonight, and I'm unhappy about it. I suspected for the last few days, but now I know for sure: I'm attracting cats. Or rather, the birds and squirrels are. This is bad. The birds (mourning doves and others) eat on the ground. I don't want cats killing them!

Darned neighbors, I can't believe they let their cats roam free around here. Would you believe that Siamese is back? The one I tried to catch a while back? Without a collar again. I think he must be skilled at slipping out of it.

I don't know what to do about the cats. I don't think there's anything I can do. :/
thistlechaser: (Chi_Point and laugh)
I'm between tasks at work. It's so odd to have a free moment. Lost and confused, I visited tumblr and found Dog Shaming. What a cute and fun idea! People put signs on their dogs to 'confess'.


And I am hungry.

This is surprisingly well done. Cute and amusing! And be sure to watch through the credits. :D

thistlechaser: (Pirates for Obama)
Newt pledges moon base by second term. One of my favorite comments on that story is "And we will pay for this venture with TAX CUTS!".

Also: Fidel Castro called the GOP presidential nomination race "the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been." That tickles me quite a bit.

And if you want some non-political amusement, have a cat texting prank.

While this zombie kitten video IS highly cute, I wouldn't be reposting it if not for the clever choice in music:



They used the theme from The Walking Dead, the best zombie end-of-the-world show ever on TV! (And man, I can't wait for the next season to start!) Credit to [livejournal.com profile] achika_soladia for the video link!

In other cat-related news, while I hate Twitter, there's a Game of Thrones newsfeed that gathers all the ep-related tweets from the night and reposts them. Those I'm willing to read. Best one of the last ep?

@TNRLM: My cat was mesmerized my Arya chasing cats on #GameOfThrones. This show really does hit all demographics.

Ha!

My RL cat continues to not like Glee. I think all the singing bothers her (probably sounds like yowling or screaming). She'll sit there, staring at the TV, then when someone starts to sing her ears will slllloooowly pin backwards, then she runs off. She watches a lot of TV, but Glee is the only show that sends her running.

It's 10 PM, do you know where your AC is?

Nearly 10, and it's 78 in my apartment. *melts* Winter's coming back soon, right? What? It's seven months away? D: Yesterday I had the heat on, today I have the AC on! (Just for a few minutes to cool things off before bed.)

On a nicer note, I keep reading this little comic over and over and it makes me happier every time! Eee love! So sweet!

And lastly, my cat is trying to eat my sofa. I've been suspecting this for a while, but I finally caught her chewing on it today. If one day I come home to find no sofa and yet a sofa-shaped cat, I'll know what happened. (But more seriously, it's leather, so I guess she likes the taste? She finds a fold near the top of it and chewchewchews away at it. I correct her when I'm home, but she's at home alone a lot... I hope she doesn't damage it or make herself sick or something.)

What do you get when you let 100 cats loose in an Ikea store?



The first three minutes of that I was scratching my head and wondering what the point of it was. (And I wouldn't let my cat take part in that!) But the last minute is really nice and made me smile.

Nothing good on TV, I started to flip around. Lots of shows I've never heard of. One caught my eye. Pit Boss. Thinking maybe it was something gambling related, I checked it out.

Totally wrong.

It's a show about a team of dwarfs who rescue, "rehabilitate", and train pit bulls.

My brain, it boggles.

In sexier news, my game model in the new FF MMO is the sexiest thing ever! [livejournal.com profile] lokyst is responsible for that screen cap. I decided to download the beta, just to see the graphics myself. The open beta. The beta open until 9/22. Only problem is, it's currently closed to new applications. Okay then!

Edit: Bah. Both dwarfs and dwarves are correct, but both look wrong!
