Is That a Turd?

Those were the first words out of my mouth today. As it turned out, it wasn't a turd, just a gak from overeating by the Beest. I've never seen a cat eat like her. Do any of you have a cat who'll eat an entire bowl of food at once and then puke? She's bulemic! She doesn't do it all the time, but now and then, always in the night. Crazy cat.

It's been cold and windy, and it rained pretty good. But we didn't get the worst of anything and it's supposed to be really nice tomorrow. However, upstate from us looks like this:


It's not so unusual. I remember camping in the Berkshires on Memorial Day weekend and waking up to a few inches of snow... in '93? '94? It'll be gone in a couple of days. The weatherbees are calling for 80' by midweek. Welcome, sweet springtime, we greet thee in song....

Meanwhile, Leonardo DeCaprio is going to outer space:

Because I didn't blog yesterday, I missed both International Missing Children Day (and am horrified at how many children are missing at the present time) and Towel Day (we miss you, Douglas).

It's a chilly somewhat dark day, and tomorrow is the observance of Memorial Day, so I'm laying low and enjoying the quiet around here. I hope wherever you are, you have peace. x

I hope you day is indeed peaceful. The cats in this house lay UDOs - unidentified disgusting objects, always related to their digestion. And if Jewel particularly likes a food she will keep eating until she pukes. In five or six places.
Some gorgeous links in this post - as always. Thank you.
I liked Sydney Harbour in technicolour. And of course we can have morality without religion - or else I am without morals.

Great links, Austan. And the title, "Is that a turd?" is certainly a question we should ask oftener in this strange new world.

Nas said...

Thanks for all the links. Loved visiting all the links and checking it all out!

It certainly has been a strange spring. I wore my winter jacket on Friday night. I am glad I hadn't put it away in the basement last month. Today was pleasant, but windy, and tomorrow is predicted to be perfect. However, in two days they say we will have temps in the 90's.

Mother Nature is really giving us a trip this year.

Austan said...

EC- UDOs! That's perfect! You don't know what they are half the time- is that a hairball or a mouse?- and they're all disgusting! Wasn't that a great light job? And yes, I'd be immoral, too.

Austan said...

Geo.- It truly is something we should ask all the time now. If for nothing else than to raise consciousness.

Austan said...

Hi Nas, you're welcome and you're welcome and thanks! :)

Austan said...

Arleen- I'm thinking this is an old-fashioned normal Spring for once. Spring days up here were usually 3 seasons and it's like that now. So I'm not complaining!

Allyson said...

oh my freakin gawd!! you just reminded me of the olive/clemmie/chewie/couch story. note to self: do not read blog while at work...

Austan said...

Hahahahahah! I thought of that story when I was writing the title!
