Fat-Butted Friday Cat Blogging


A trick of perspective makes for an amusing photo. In reality, Moxy has normal proportions (including a rather skinny butt). She reminds me of a Kliban cat, especially in this picture.

In other news, I finally watched Slither, starring the young Nathan Fillion. Loved it! (Yes, LL, he is a mere child born in 1971.) It was campy and fun. Later this weekend I will be attempting to fix the horrible damage I caused by stripping 40+ yr old wallpaper (oh joy, can't wait), and we may even try to get some other stuff done. I'm still enjoying the goodies from the SciFi Straight Dope Halloween card and candy exchange. Oh yeah - I will enjoy that extra hour of sleep this weekend, even as I mourn the loss of evening daylight hours. At least I can rest easy knowing that twilight comes very late in Atlanta (even on standard time) compared to the time it occurred in Massachusetts, where I lived for 12+ years. That was harder to get used to than the cold or snow. Sunset at 4:20? WTF?

What the heck are you feeding that cat?

LL said...

Good question... we haven't heard from PDM in a while either...

1971? THAT, my dear, is why I refer to him as the old guy.

Yeah living in NY sucks with it getting dark so early. But at least we arent above the Artic Circle where for three months its dark all the time.

dr s - Perhaps she is supplementing her diet with "live food" while outside.

LL - *sigh* If he is old, then I am older, and I can't have that!

bc - the extra early darkness is something that I will never miss about the northeast. It was such a surprise. Something I never thought of when I moved up there. But now I appreciate Atlanta's position far west in the eastern time zone.

You enjoyed Slither? I'm surprised. I wouldn't pick you to enjoy something so gory. It is cool, though.

TheWriteGirl said...

That's hysterical. She does look like a Kliban cat - very meatloaf-y. I have yet to get my Halloween box'o'goodies. I'm kinda sad it hasn't shown up yet.

fermicat said...

wa11z - I didn't think the gore was over the top.

thewritegirl - does Kech know you moved? The first exchange after I moved there was a delay because the box got sent to my old addy and had to be forwarded. Maybe that is what happened.

Haha! That picture was funny. Maybe too much catnip has gievn her the munchies.

sunset at 5:30 here today.

Gah!!

LL said...

Oh Tiff... that just gives you more time for... erm... nocturnal activities... :lech:

fermicat said...

magnetbabe - she does like her feline opium den.

tiff - 5:43pm for us today. All next week I'm gonna feel like I am late for work.

LL - whatever do you mean? ;)

Beth said...

What a picture! Extroardinary as always.

I wonder if I've seen Slither. It sounds so familiar. Hmmm.

I loved getting up into the light today. Made me feel like I'd actually slept.

Hi, Fermi.

OK, since I temporarily came out of long-term "hiding" today on Kathleen's blog (thanks to her review of Little, Big), I feel compelled to do so here too ;-). And I see that I have fairly good timing. I don't know when you changed the blurb under the Little, Big cover, but it certainly makes me feel good to know that you don't hate it (I didn't really think you would, but one can never be certain).

As for your being so slow in reading it, just remember that it took me several months, too, not counting the semesters when I stopped to concentrate on all that book learnin' in college.

I eagerly await your review, even if it takes another two or three months. Just don't rush yourself. There's no hurry.

beth - it was still dark here when I had to get up, but it did seem a little bit easier. It was much lighter for my morning drive, leading me to think "I'm late!", but I got there at 7:50am - not late.

MW - glad to see you around these parts again. I had a feeling kat would bring you out. Yes, I like the book but it is taking me forever and a day to get through it. This book really deserves to be read straight through and not like I've been doing it - a few pages or a chapter at a time late at night when I am sleepy. But I am getting close to finishing it now.

Kathleen said...

Oooh, thanks for the name of the Nathan Fillion movie. It'll be in my Netflix queue in a matter of moments!

1971? That's my youngest sister's age. But she can't have him, he's mine, all mine. Ha ha! ;-)

That's one of the nice things about Michigan - we're on the far western end of the Eastern time zone, so days last a bit longer.
