All right. We’ve lots to talk about this morning. First things first, though. My new article is up on the City Wire. You can read it here.
Okay, so yesterday afternoon I called Little Peddler to confirm that she was cooking dinner and that we would be over around 6:30pm as always. We chatted for a while and then she tells me that she has a surprise, but if she tells me then I can’t tell Pancake Land. After years of people wanting to confide in me and blab their secrets to me, only to leave me feeling the torments of not telling the secrets, I know better. I tell her not to tell me and then P.L. and I can both be surprised.
To Pancake Land’s credit, as soon as I mentioned the imminent surprise, she guessed what it was. And she was correct. KITTENS!
Meet our three new sons:
That’s right. It’s kitten time again. These little guys are a little over four weeks old and are still slow and clumsy. We were so used to the lightning reflexes of the first four test subjects, that we don’t know what to do with these little guys. They are so small and fuzzy. They can’t yet escape the Kitten Concentration Camp, but it is only a matter of time. So far, Eazy is the laid back one, Frank is the feisty one, and Gonzo really likes hanging out in the litter box. He scratched around in there for like fifteen minutes last night. This is after he pooped and peed. Weird. They are super cute. Our plan is to call the Humane Society and inform them that we had a set of kittens dumped in our laps and we want to know if they will treat this as a fostership. We love the prospect of having our own cats, but we are not yet ready to crush the dream of endless kittens.
Speaking of crushing dreams. Have you seen or heard about The Expendables? I saw the trailer yesterday. Holy crap. You should go watch it really quickly so that I do not spoil it for you.
Okay. So what the crap?! It was like Sly Stallone was like “I’m gonna make a movie and I’m gonna call everybody I know and get them to be in it.” And then he did. The only people I didn’t see were Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme, but they might be making cameos for all I know. Let me check IMDB. Holy shit! Ravi Shankar has an uncredited cameo. It is a movie super group. It is like the Traveling Wilburys of movies. Actually, to give my proper respects, Pancake Land and White Chocolate had a discussion about sixth months ago about wanting to make a movie starring all the 80’s action stars. I’m sure they are not the first nor will they be the last to have the idea, but props is props and I must give them where they are due. What was I saying? Oh, yeah. What the crap? I can’t even wrap my head around this movie. I just hope that Roddy Piper and Keith David make a brawling cameo. Maybe there will be a heart felt moment and then all of the sudden Crash! in rolls Roddy Piper and Keith David like a tumbleweed. Eternally brawling. Nice.
Well whatever. I’ve got to play with my sons before work. More soon. ~SC
