Sure, he looks innocent in that icon...

But really, he's a criminal mastermind, out to either straight-out murder me or drive me to the grave by slow stages...

Last night I paused in what passes for our "hallway," talking to Barb in her office, pulling on one of my slippers. As I went to put my foot down, he whipped under me, forcing me to stumble, then topple over into the armchair, while he disappeared into the kitchen. I now feel like I'm bruised from shoulder to waist (although all that shows is a small bruise on my arm. Figures). Naturally, I landed pretty hard on my bad arm.

Then he determined to "love me" all night, pretty much from about 12:30 until 3:00, when I finally gave up with putting him at the foot of the bed so he'd stop walking on me and licking my fingers (tasting me?! Maybe Ferguson is right!) and asking to be petted, and once the door to the bedroom was closed, he started banging on it and crying to be let back in. I gave in, and he ran off and I never saw him again. I finally got back to sleep around 4:00 or so, just in time to get up when the alarm went off at 5:15. I think, on the whole, I got about four hours of interrupted sleep, and feel that way -- a feeling I usually reserve for days after a fun night at a honky-tonk.

And the OTHER cat insists that he's starving, but he refuses to eat the cat food I put down for him. *sigh*

As often happens when I don't sleep enough, I ate way too much today. It was one of those weird party days, where instead of all desserts, there were none, but there were a LOT of chips and cheesy dip and salsa and hot dogs and my baked beans and chicken wings. All very tasty, and of course, lots of leftover beans, so they're back in the oven baking some more, since they're more watery than baked beans should be (since I cooked them overnight, I didn't want to risk them drying out).

In listening to NPR today, I discovered that all of us who voted for Obama are illiterate fools who cannot even spell the word "vote" nor say it in English, and elected a "socialist ideologist." (This is the opinion of a speaker at the Tea Party convention. I'd love to find out how literate he is, and, as with many of them, if they actually can tell me what "socialism" means.) They played some of the same speech this evening on the ABC News, leaving out his comment about speaking English, and all the nasty things he said about how Obama was elected by immigrants. I wonder where his family came from?

I hope everyone on the East coast is staying warm (and SAFE!).

I think my icon is quite appropriate this evening. I have many nights like you've described. Grendel lives in my room at the moment because he's on medication and it's the only way I can be sure of catching him. It's making me crazy, though.

PS - We're only expected to get a couple of inches of snow. Yay for us, not so yay for places south, where they're getting clobbered.

Was this the dude from S. America? (Irony. He missed it). There had some summaries of these events over on Dailykos. I can't read much of it though. Raises my blood pressure.

And sympathies on the overly demanding cat. I know those.

I have to re-listen to the story at NPR.org - I can't remember which of their stellar speakers it was (like the judge who wouldn't take down the 10 Commandments monument from the courthouse or the fellow "who works against corporate regulations, trying to free the tobacco companies of limitations and laws."

Just be glad 10 commandments dude isn't running for governor of your state (I'm assuming the 10 commandments dude is our 10 commandments judge... and yes, he is (running for governor and crazy).

Roy Moore? (Former Alabama Chief Justice?) Probably one and the same.

We, on the other hand, have J.D. Hayworth, former sports announcer turned house rep turned right-wing radio nutjob, now deciding he's going to challenge McCain for the Senior Senate seat. Hmmm, trade one wackidoodle for another...? I think I still prefer McCain.

It was the first speaker, Tom Tancredo, former U.S. Representative from Colorado.

Besides the racist parts of the speech, what I thought was too high-larious for words was the idea of Tea Baggers cheering the notion of people needing to take a civics exam to vote. None that I've met, thus far, could answer the most basic questions about how our republic was actually founded, or works...

...and this includes the ones I'm related to.

And seeing the signs they carry for events, I don't know that they can actually read. We do know that they cannot spell.

I know. I honestly wanted to see if they could pass a basic literacy test, starting with "diagram this sentence."
