Random Thoughts Thursday 143

  • Whenever I pick Snow up, I notice he smells nice and wonder how, being an outdoor cat! I finally figured out what he smells like – cedar! Because… he lives in a house with cedar on it. Duh, Kim. Just, duh.

  • I’ve been bringing Snow in at night, when it’s dark, for short visits. The dark part is key – he gets scared if I bring him in when it’s light outside. But at night, his tail is wagging, he’s playing with toys, and hanging out. I feel like I am getting closer to being able to put him in the cat carrier to go get his shots/chip/get neutered (I tried in the winter and spring and it was a disaster).

  • I had my first malfunction in the new workspace yesterday when I got there and my locker wouldn’t open. Grrr. Apparently, some of the new lockers came with not-so-new batteries? So mine died on me with my stuff (that I needed!) locked inside. I was impressed the team was able to get it open in forty-five minutes of me reporting the issue! (and I questioned if I should just take my stuff home last night, but I left it in there, and am giving it another try…) On a positive note, I do love that many of the workstations have two external monitors (I usually only have one external monitor)!

  • I ordered my 2018 page-a-day-calendar way in advance so the same thing won’t happen as last year! I can’t wait to use it. This year’s has been a bit of a dud.

  • Has anyone else seen The Circle with Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, and John Boyega? I need to talk to someone about how horrible it is. Ha ha.
  • We’re watching the American version of The Office (I’ve never seen it but Steven has) and I am not sure I can handle it. Michael Scott makes me so uncomfortable, and mad. Does that feeling go away?

    Aww… that’s funny how Snow is scared to come inside during day light! Maybe cats feel like they can hide better in the dark and that’s why he’s ok with that? Good luck with the eventual vet trip!

      I was wondering if that was why too. Or that he can’t see outside as well and is thinking less about being “trapped”?

      Thanks 🙂

    Snow has a melt me kind of face 🙂
    I have not see The Circle lol and I guess I am lucky!

    Look at that shiny coat no wonder he smells good!!

    LOL on the cedar cat. It’s sweet that he’s becoming more comfortable with coming inside – he’s such a pretty boy, I want him to be friends with his inside cousins!

    You will get more accustomed to Michael Scott, and I also think that the writers make him more relatable as time goes by. It’s such a great show; there are so many wonderful actors that make it a treat to watch.

    • kilax says:

      I want him to be too! He actually is friends with Khali and Data – although I could see Snow being a bit of an arse to them. He already is to Khali from time to time. I wonder if having him neutered will affect that!

      I’ve noticed in season 2 he’s a bit better and it’s Dwight that seems nutso, but more in a “wtf?!” than a cringe-y way!

    I couldn’t handle The Office, either. Maybe because I worked in an office with people who were too much like that already??

    • kilax says:

      I bet so. It just made me ragey, watching Season 1 and thinking about people I know that act like that. Season 2’s been better for me.

    I have not seen the movie of The Circle but I read the book. Michael Scott is supposed to make you feel that way. It’s the point of his existence.

    • kilax says:

      How was the book? It seemed like such an interesting concept!

      Yeah, I get it. It’s effective. I just don’t want to feel that way when I am NOT working. Ha.

    Cats smelling like cedar. That’s a good thing. Normally if they roll around outside they smell like dirt. Some of our older cats (that are no longer with us) used to roll around in the mint plant. That was a nice smell for them.

    I’ve seen Liz Climo cartoons before. She’s very talented.

    • kilax says:

      Aww, mint kitties! Funny! Yesterday Snow didn’t smell like cedar – I think he did spend the day in the dirt, ha!

      She is! I kind of obsessively buy her greeting cards at Target.
