Brief view from a stop light on the way home. It got a lot worse before we managed to get there…

Explains a lot.

Good news: We figured out the best way to clip the cats claws. Do them about 30 minutes after their evening meal.

Bad news: Managed to quick the drama queen’s (Calypso) dew claw.

Bizarre news: She didn’t even flinch. o_O Me, I’m guilt-ridden.

Unrelated news: If you’re going to show off in a (very) beginning programming MOOC, you *might* want to make sure your program works properly before you submit to peer grading. Just saying.


I are grownup

I fixed the back door today! The lock was super hard to lock/unlock and the knob would barely even TURN – which means quietly opening the door so that Jake could chase a squirrel was just not happening. Well, neither the dog nor I could stand for that, so I replaced the whole door knob.

I also have laundry in, because I’m an adult, dammit.

    *Really* crappy cell phone pic, but the stack of three cats in apparently the best sunspot in the house at the moment was too cute not to share. In other news, I can’t use my desktop right now.

    The cats pulled three different toys out of the toybox over the last couple of days. I’m glad they don’t have opposable thumbs.

    Fanfuckingtastic.

    Over 11,000 sexual assault kits, some dating back to the 1980’s, were found abandoned in a Detroit Police storage facility back in 2009.

    Not long after the rape kits were discovered, Worthy pushed to start the processing with Michigan State Police.

    So far, 1,600 rape kits have been processed, resulting in the identification of about 100 serial rapists and ten convicted rapists, according to Worthy.

    Everything is awesome!

    Yeah, ok – the LEGO movie? Fucking brilliant. Go. See. Fun, action, and it’ll hit you in your feels. Now excuse me please, I have to go build something.

    Brilliant.

    Don’t bother with Fable Anniversary – locks up every single time I play. Made it in an hour this time at least.
