I simultaneously love and hate that.
Kilgore Trout once wrote a short story which was a dialogue between two pieces of yeast. They were discussing the possible purposes of life as they ate sugar and suffocated in their own excrement. Because of their limited intelligence, they never came close to guessing that they were making champagne.
Truly a fable for our time.
Occasionally I will make a point of renting a hotel room with a large enough bathtub for me to fit into (2 person deep soaking tubs usually). Today while using such a tub I adjusted my position too quickly. The subsequent displacment of an extreme volume of water resulted in a moderate sized tsunami originating in my bathtub. One wall of the hotel has been knocked down and much furniture washed out of the opening caused in the 3rd floor wall. A bichon frise named Mango has been reported missing and a search is under way. No other casualties have been reported.
Interesting, this event popped up on my buzzfeed alert. The Bichon Frise is fine, but quite soggy.
Adopting a new cat. I pick him up next week after he's de-balled. Taking name suggestions, please.
My wife says to just ask the cat, and it will tell you its name. Of course, she may have some sort of psychic bond with cats that you and I don't. Or maybe not: our cat's name is 'Meow'.
How silly do you want to be?
I mean my first thought was Sir Scratchgood McClawington. The best suggestion so far was Hairy Pawter, excpet I'd feel like a fake because I'm not a Harry Potter fan.
Such a little cutie! Take good care of him !
Picking up on your name composition in English: How about Gratsounao - or I scratch - in Greek?
If you're in the mood for something Greek, how about Clytemnestra? She was pretty catty, as I recall.
From what Dwes wrote, I inferred the cat is an ex-he-to-be - so the choice of a male name.
Frontrunner so far is Napolean. He's a small guy and both the movie Napoleon Dynamite and a steak place called Napolean's have some meaning to me and my s/o. Still looking at other names.
If you're looking for a short French ruler, then Mitterrand, Sarkozy, Hollande and Macron come to mind as potential name alternatives......
Separate names with a comma.
