No problem, CC. I'll get a drink for Elena to calm her down.
Thanks Mike. She seems like a nice woman. Now Ann Coulter on the other hand...neigh!!
Now let me tell ya a little story 'bout a man named Jed.
Poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed.
Then one day he was shootin' at some food.
And up from the ground came a bubblin' crude.
Oil that is. Black gold. Texas tea.
Well, the next thing you know old Jed's a millionaire.
Kin folks said "Jed move away from there".
Said "California's the place ya oughtta be".
So they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly. Hills that is. Swimming pools. Movie stars.
The Beverly Hillbillies.
Whats up with the theme song singing CC? I mean I am sure you have a lovely singing voice but that was kind of random no?
A humble aside.
If any of the Bistro denizens who are presently 'carrying' LONG hair are thinking about clippin' the winter/spring tresses
They need "10 inches" for a "wig" ..... but if you could forward ... say 8" .... and braid it every 2" inches or so, they'd figure out how to 'sell' it to market (hair-has-value).....it'd help to offset their opt/maint. costs. .... i.e. someone'll give 'em dough for it.
Whatever....braid (every "2 inches") then snip..and forward the 'clip' to the ship.
Better than the barber floor (be they capture it "plastic-slide" style or "braid-it" the clip... as 'twas like the last time)
Am doing it (like the 2nd time-winter '09) come next week...sorry ILC-haha...will send you ILC "Robert Plant" pre-cut pix...haha...Kumquat!..
not to be construed as an endorsement of any "ILC-sanctioned" website.....however suggested...wink;
Compadre!....you must understand (as if you didn't already know):
While "Tom Petty Dementiava" looks like a horsey-face imho, at the same time I've never denied & always maintained that I'm a horse's ass.....(please ref. to "SIG" below post):
"ILC owned&operated....horse's ass whisperer.."
Never doubted that. xoxoxdp
Those words were from Elena; I am fine with your homage to her elongated (or is it elenagated?) head. Incidentally, that is a great cause you posted above.
It seems Elena dozed off at the Bistro bar after a few glasses of wine. I am sure she wouldn't mind if I donated her ponytail to the cause...
***SNIP SNIP SNIP***
OOOOoooh Mikey, you'd better run now that you've got her "pony" tail!!!!!!
*******P O P********
Nice bubbly, thanks ever so.....raises pinky
As I take a seat at the bar, I notice a garish advertising poster that reads, "LAPIN KULTA: BREWED FOR QUANTITY, NOT QUALITY." I have fond memories of riding the Baltic Sea with Swedish, Finnish and Russian women fueled by Lapin Kulta on Silja ships.
Like Denmark's Politiets Efterretningstjeneste, Lapin Kulta is not likely to be involved with intelligent thought or sophisticated behavior. Unlike Denmark's Politiets Efterretningstjeneste, a night with Lapin Kulta might be fun.
"CC, may I have a Lapin Kulta, and please send a Karhu beer up to the ceiling fan for the refined gentleman and lovely ILC."
The lemur runs in, chased by Elena, and hands me the scissors that I handed him when I saw Elena stirring from her wine slumber. I race out of the Bistro, jump in a cab, and the cab accelerates away.
I have another complaint about cats and the people that own them.
My neighbor got one about 2 weeks ago. Ever since then I have found 6 chipmunks, 2 field mice, and a mole dead in my driveway. I get that cats kill small animals but it always leaves it in my driveway. When I told my neighbor he just laughed and walked away. No offer to pick it up or that he will keep a better eye on the cat or anything. Just a laugh. So I offiacly hate cats more if that was possible.
Mav.....are you sure that the new kitteh is the culprit? Maybe just a coincedence. If it's new is it a kitten or an adult. It would be very unusual for a kitten to be killing small animals already. I do kind of have a problem with people letting kittehs outside. Yes I know they love being outside and being predators, but they can have wonderful lives being indoor kittehs....and the local bird population is also safe. I wish you luck with your neighbor. He doesn't sound particularily civilized or pleasant. If it continues to happen and the new kitteh IS the culprit, you might try asking him nicely to remove the "evidence". If he refuses or gets nasty, you might try to somehow make sure the "evidence" ends up in his driveway, preferably as close to his door or car as possible. However distasteful this may be, it may be what it takes to get through to that knucklehead.
Its an adult cat no kitten. I am tempted to let my older dog loose on it but I am not mean. The guy just wont acknowledge it and pretty soon dead critters might find their way into his house. Not near but inside.
Well......be careful.....just sayin'..........
Don't get mad Mav. Check into the animal bylaws in Boston. There is a good chance your neighbor can be fined for littering (but keep in mind you will have to have proof of the cat leaving it's trophy on your drive). Not much, but after a few of them he will likely leave the cat inside or else restrain him in the yard.
My Missy was very frustrated with me this morning. She tried endlessly throughout my marathon sleep to rouse me to no avail. She jumped up on the bed at least two dozen times, walked all over my hair (pulling it as she went), walked over me a few times and even brought one of her noisy toys to bed. Finally I could feel her jump up at the end of the bed and march up in a very deliberate manner. In one move she threw herself against the pillows beside me (her head landed on my shoulder) and I could hear her sigh. Yes...just like a human she actually sighed in exasperation. Haha. I got up then.
i have a complaint, why is society filled with horrible people, like men that try to look hot but they are really jerks that get all the attention, attention that they dont deserve, they are only blood sucking backstabbers, who cover up the real people with beauty and class. they get all the women why dammit why.
Proving it would be tough and its a hassle just to deal with any kind of town official. We have the dumbest officials in my town. Nobody wants to do it so some idiot does.
I have a complaint. I dont wanna listen to someone cry in the bistro. Unless you are a female crying and *****ing is strongly discouraged.
hey hey im not crying you idiot, and who the hell do you think you are you dont own this thread or this forum, you no life, go hang ur self you loner. if you dont want to listen to anyone cry then stop typing because you are very ironic.
Oh my, that's really funny. Missy seems to have quite a personality! I can visualize these events...her marching defiantly...trying one more time to roust Mamma out of bed...LOL...then flinging herself into you. Quite the little drama queen. Sounds like she realizes now that she's staying
She is a drama queen and when I called her that she meowed back as if to agree. She has a heck of a personality...so hilarious. She is in a ball sleeping on the couch right now but I guarantee if I were to walk over and turn off her Undercover Mouse she would be awake and telling me off immediately. She can here the click as I turn it off from across the apartment. Mind you, it is a very small apartment but once I coughed to cover the sound and she came flying into the living room. lol.
Mav, do what you want to the neighbour but remember that the cat is only following his instincts and well...being a cat. Let no harm come to that baby or I will be on the first flight to Boston and it won't be for a social visit! :evil:
Hey! Watch yourself. We don't address others in this forum that way. He was kidding around with you so step down and watch the narrative!
Now that said, what is the issue? You need to be a little more specific so we can respond. Your first post left a lot to the imagination and a little to go on.
kk sry its just that i found the post uncalled, for forget my post, i wont try again. forget it.
Relax and welcome to the thread. You need to get to know the personalities of the regulars in this joint and you will come to understand that almost everything is said in humour or sarcasm. Mav wasn't trying to be mean to you.
Now don't be stomping off in a huff. I was curious as to what your rant was about. I would like to understand what you were saying but you didn't say what the problem was. Again, I am asking what it is so I can give some of my stellar advice.
just the fact that there are so many, maybe what you call alphamales, that are ugly and asswholes, that get all the attention from women and have everything going there way, instead of nice people with good looks, i mean when i was younger everyone said i was handsome but too nice or calm, and now this person is ugly and an extreme asswhole and gets it all i mean wtf.
Okay, first of all I will ask you to cut out the swearing so you don't get yourself banned (and they will ban you for it). Second, I am curious as well as to why the jerks always seem to have everything go their way. This works for the females as well. It seems the nastier you are the more you get in life (not always but many a time). I do believe that nice guys finish last and that if you just be patient your qualities will attract the kind of woman you are looking for.
ya but all the women im looking for which are hot ones, are hanging out with (them) in bars and discos, doing drugs and being complete mean people, and i think that it is true that the nastier you are the more you get in life, you think nice people get the attention? no no no
why do nice guys finish last?
no my only chance is to lose 50 pounds and look like the man to youre left....
its a sad world.
Maybe tone done the anger and clean up the language for a start?
When you're driving the speed limit on the high-way and see everyone pass you it's tempting to conclude that "everybody speeds". What you don't pay attention to is the majority of traffic who is ahead of you, by you and behind you going the same speed as you.
My guess is that all you're seeing is the few women you see as *OMG! she's sooooo hoottt!* and not recognizing many fine, attractive and wonderful women around you. Look around a bit, keep an open mind and I think you may be in for a surprise.
I say stop crying and you tell me to go hang myself. Thats an appropriate response.
So I should put the bow and arrow away? I can nail that sucker from my window. I dont even have to get up out of the chair to do it.:twisted:
Dont listen to this. Women love foul mouth guys that tell people on the internet to go hang themselves. Nothing attracts women more than suicide threats.:-?
Its because they dont care. All the nice guys sit around worrying about other peoples feelings and what they think of them. As you get older you should learn that neither matters for 99.9% of the people you meet.
Learned a long time ago that the unbelievable hot women with high demands isnt worth it. Give me the woman that I find attractive and can challenge me in a conversation any day. I love to tease and if a girl cant take it and give it back then it will never work no matter how nice her boobs are.
There's your problem right there. This doesn't make you sound nice, it makes you sound shallow. Maybe you should try to stick to women that you have more in common with, and stop looking in bars and discos. I don't know anyone who built a long lasting relationship from that type of environment. If all you want is meaningless sex, stick around until closing time when everybody looks somewhat attractive through the haze of desperation.
SamprasFed. seems like he has a lot of luck with the ladies. lol.
i never said that was my case it may have been 1 and then you all start sort of attacking me, watever.
Its all good. Im not very successful myself in that department.
Very sound post. And a nice line. Sounds like a song title by the Pixies.
She's so hot, she's making me sexist.
Okay, then what exactly is your case? You are expressing yourself very poorly so far in this conversation, and getting mad at all of us because of it. Take a breath, proofread your post to make sure its clear, add some punctuation, and see if you can help us understand what your specific issue is.
-Hanging out in bars? HOT!
-Doing drugs? That's even HOTTER!
-Being completely mean? Wow, how HOT can one get?!!!
Hot? Dude, that's called skank.
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
You look UP to these people???
Psst, look 'down' ...that's where they are.
Nice (esp. when 'applied correctly') always wins the day. I guarantee you that half these 'hotties' (coming off their drug-influenced "smart choices" down the road) will probably even have penicillin scared of them 5 years from now. You're barking up the wrong set of trees and if you can't tell the difference between 'hotties' and skank, then you can't see the forest for those trees.
...where was I?....ah yes,
Mikey Boogaloo, loved your "Lapin Kulta=brewed for quantity/not quality" crack. Did you see my Lapin Kulta post in the "Best Kind of Bear" thread? Ah, I too remember cracking open a cold Karhu with grilled sausage/smoked salmon after enjoying 'loyla' & birch branch whippings while taking sauna on a waterside summer cottage compound in 'Suomi'......midnight (twilight) swims au natural....sigh...such summer days and endless nights.... To your health MB! "Kippis!"
^^Now how could this gem get lost in the shuffle?
There is a white cat named Crystal at the local humane society. She has lost most of her tail and about half of both her ears due to frostbite when some piece of human waste dumped her outside the shelter (unstaffed at night) last winter in -30+ C weather and she was found too late to prevent permanent damage. I want her. I do believe I will be sitting down with my landlords within the next couple of days to see what the odds are of them allowing me two cats in my apartment? She needs love and a permanent home and family and I do believe my little Miss. Missy and I could offer that to her. We'll see - I'll post the verdict.
I was about to say surely if you're a fairly trouble-free tenant in other regards there shouldn't be a problem, then I remembered rule 1 of such things: Setting a precedent.
Hmm, good luck with your quest, CC.
....bored, on a public holiday in the land of Oz.
Precedent is a tricky thing. I get along very well with them (they stop off for a beer whenever they are in the building and invite me over for BBQ's etc. throughout the year). When they were showing me the place many moons ago I told them straight out that I am a stress case and my cat is a deal breaker. My cat was my family so it was a no brainer for me. There is a blind man in the building but no one else had been allowed to have pets prior to them purchasing the building a month or so before I moved in. Anyway, they allowed my cat no worries...perhaps because they knew I was clean and responsible.
When Paws became ill my landlords were worried about him. They would call to see how he is doing and made a point of telling me that when his time came, they understand that I would eventually need feline companionship. They said they did not want to lose me as a tenant and that when the time came they would be cool with me getting another cat.
Their pet policy has relaxed considerably over the years and I believe they now simply charge an extra deposit for animal owners in their other property. No one here has befriended a furry one although they could if they wanted to I suppose. I am just not wanting them to feel as though I am taking my relationship with them for granted and pushing their comfort limit. We'll talk and I will respect what they decide - I know they will be fair. Keep in mind these are the same people who made me sign a ten-year lease. lol.
Hmmm, interesting story. I was referring to precedent more as in: once you get two animals the precedent has been set for other tenants, but nonetheless, the history that you presented there makes it seem somewhat likely you'll succeed.
I suppose part of what I'd pitch iiwy would be that this is the last! Like, if one was enough, and now you want two, if I was them I'd start to worry you were about to setup a small menagerie of sorts.
A ten year lease? Wow. That's significant, I barely know where I want to be tomorrow, let alone in 3649 days!
Again, good luck in the quest. If it's meant to be, it will indeed be, or so say the Buddhists.
I hear what you're saying. The last thing they need is some animal rescue fanatic/freak in one of their units.
Ya know OO, if you ever feel the wind blowing you up to Canada, you can always sub lease a very small apartment in the 'hood' with understanding landlords and friendly neighbours. No worry...the cat goes where I go.
True, but equally, a good tenant is a good tenant. I'm sure Doctor Dolittle grabbed a lease somewhere...
I don't mind cats, but I wouldn't trust myself to look after a goldfish (probably trust a cat more than me!).
By all reports 'there' is quite similar to 'here', though I'm never willing to judge that until I've been there to say so. When I live in Ireland I was able to prove exactly that, except for the fact that the Irish are actually more laid-back than us orstrayleans.
And hey - at least you guys spell things the right way, with o's AND u's!
Now, how should I spend the remainder of my day - tidying pointlessly or watching a pointless movie?
I hope your landlords let you adopt the cat, CC. My understanding is that Siamese cats are gregarious and like to be around other cats, so my guess is that this would benfit "Miss. Missy" as well.
The "Best Kind of Bear" thread gave me a laugh. The beautiful summer days and endless nights in Baltic realms like Saint Petersburg, Helsinki, and Stockholm are magical to me. For some reason, I feel at home around the Baltic Sea.
Even Baltic winters are magical to me. There is something about the Baltic area that resonates with me.
CC I think its great that you wanna help another cat but I gotta make the cat lady joke
Be careful or before you know it you will have 20 cats and I will see you on one of those tv shows were the 90 yo woman lives in cat crap and the entire building stinks of it and tuna fish.
Yeah, you have to be careful about catching the "kitteh bug" CC. I never imagined I'd be taking care of six cats. Then the kittehs were sooooooo adorable. They're still soooooooo adorable and have upped the ante with super affection so now it's really, really, hard to let them go (still no luck with shelters and other animal rescue/adoption organizations :cry. I've taken to letting them run around outside for longer and longer periods of time. With most cats, if you let them out, well, good luck cathing them. What happens when I'm out there with them? They follow me around, all the while running and chasing each other and climbing the trees. If I let them out there alone for half a day, as soon as I come home or outside I hear four meows, see four heads dart out from various places, and the next thing I know I'm inundated with cattens all clamoring for petting and attention.
Awww....that's so sweet mtommer.....any recent pics of all of your babies?
CC...I know you'll do the right thing my friend
I'll have to take some. I'll see if I can find my camera in all the mess. My siblings and I have been cleaning my mothers house. Have you ever seen one of those hoarders shows? Yeeupp, just like them. We got her to move into my sisters after I had to take her to the hospital and she had seizures. We finally got it through her head that if she didn't move we'd call adult protective services and get the house condemned if we had to. We also had her get a psych eval while in the hospital and she's been diagnosed with OCD and depression, as we told her umpteen million times! So anyway, the kittehs are outside while we clean so they we don't step on them etc. (it's hard to see when you're trying to throw out one of those filled 55 gal garbage bags!
The lemur plans on drinking beers and watching Stepanek and Baghdatis matches on the Bistro television until Malakas returns.
Farewell to our good, fiery, Greek friend, recently fallen to the dreaded banhammer. You will be remembered by many.
I'm sorry to hear about your mom's condition mtommer but am happy she is getting help now. Sometimes it takes a village, eh? Take care and love that you are lovin' the babies!
