Why I haven’t posted on this blog since – a long time ago:
- I was busy
- I didn’t have time
- I had a lot to do
- I was doing other things
- It fell off the calendar
- I had a lot going on
- Work got in the way
The good news … I now have two kittens. Kokonut has long since stopped attacking his adopted kid-sister, Nutmeg, at any moment of proximity – that’s how long it has been since I posted here. Nutmeg is finally potty trained (a miracle in itself), is no longer throwing up … and she even has a name. I think I went through about 5 names before I settled on “Nutmeg.” She does not look remotely like that particular spice, she is black and white (and drop-dead gorgeous). But “Nutmeg” works, and I like calling her “Nut.”
My kittens could probably be considered somewhat spoiled, as they have raw meat, usually chicken liver, for breakfast every morning. But I simply consider that no feline creature was made for a diet of dry carbohydrates. And not only that, the chicken liver at Safeway is cheaper than the wet cat food I was buying before!
I could say a lot more. I could give you a better recap of … other parts of life. I just … am still … trying to catch up, on all my incomplete projects.
Not to mention the fact that I only have a couple of months to finish my photography course before the deadline.
Or maybe my “monthly post” idea should become “semi-annual posts.” Or annual posts? Or how about, once every two years … wasn’t there a word for that?
No, seriously. I do aim to one day start posting perennially.
I also aim to one day post my cat pictures – as is the original, most traditional, and most time-honored purpose of blogging.
As I write, nutmeg has come across a rather unfortunate twist-tie, covered in thick red paper, which is now under full onslaught. Ah … she is carrying it away in her teeth now, looking back and forth to make sure no competing predators try to steal it from her. Oh! Koko has approached her … Hiss, growl, stay away from my twist-tie!
This is the first time I have seen Nutmeg growl. Koko is still twice her size so it is always amusing when I see her scare him off.
Okay, now, to get on with it. The real purpose of my post. I want to tell you about the elephant who draws better than me.
Now, I admit it, that’s not saying much. I mean, really no competition there. Some people were born to draw, I was not.
But this elephant has won my full admiration and I would love to hire him (or her) as my graphics designer.
Some critics insist this is not really an elephant. After all, their brains are smaller. I agree that it would help if one could see the elphant better, and not just the trunk. But I find it very amusing, if not a little sick and sad, that some people still think that a brain, or the size thereof, has anything to do with thought. But, I digress. Maybe I will save that for another post – perhaps next year’s.
