It's okay! :( I was pretty sad but, she was getting old, and was kind of expecting it to come at anytime really.
No one in the family could even remember how old she was haha.
All I know, is we got her while I was still in high school, and it's been about 11 - 12 years since I left HS haha.

But to share a funny story about my cat. I was watching a dvd in the living room of my parents place a few years ago with my dad. My dad was working on a jigsaw puzzle while watching the movie. He hits on a big bar stool when he does his jigsaw puzzle. My cat, went and pooped on the floor right by his foot, in such a stealthy way, that no one heard or saw her do it.
When my father got up to get something to eat or drink, his foot went right into the poo.

My dad wasn't happy at the time, but looks at it as a funny story now though haha.

Sounds like she died old and content. Feel free to share more funny stories about your cat. :)

I had a dog that would tease my younger brother by taking his toys and hiding them from him. Like he would literally sit and watch my brother lay out all of his toys in their battle formations, and while my brother's back was turned this dog would grab one of the larger toys and sneak off with it, and stick it somewhere out of sight (but still pretty easy to find). Then he'd sit and wait for my brother to notice, and would take off running once my brother finally did (it was kind of their game, my brother would chase the dog first before looking for his toy -- the dog normally hid the toys in the same spots). 

I really miss having a pet around. They're great.

Name of kitten?

If I ever get one I swear I'm going to name it Grandpa. Even if it's a girl. My family has forbidden it, so now only the lack of a cat will stop me.

Why is coffee so demonised.

 :police: I feel a bit under the weather.............
 :-* Oh, okay, that's not good.

10 mins later.  :police: *sips coffee*

 :-* You said you were sick?????

 :police: -->  :rolleyes: :huh:

It's coffee, it's warm. It isn't going to do anything to my "recovery."

And even if it did, I need my damn coffee.

On the flipside, I personally feel like coffee is put on a pedestal. Though I also don't think coffee would affect your "recovery"

EVERY cat is named mittens. :p
(this is a running joke between me and a couple friends) :p

As for another funny story about my cat (I don't have many, sadly). She was a HUGE scaredy cat, to the point she was even scared of birds. She'd only go outside if one of the family was nearby.
My dad, is a huge labourer type. If he isn't at work, he is at home doing things (like cutting wood for the winter and stuff).
My cat loved to go outside while my dad was cutting wood, especially if there were lots of birds, because, my cat would get scared, run near my dad, and the birds would dive bomb my dad while trying to get the cat lol.

Bender agrees!


Also, coffee is uber magical. It transforms me from a grumpy, angry, lethargic teacher who just wants to be asleep until morning classes are done into a grumpy, angry, hyperactive teacher who just wants to be asleep until morning classes are done.

It can do wonderful things. Case in point:

Gotta love futurama! :P

For realsies though, the taste of coffee (and tea) just makes me real sick, to the point, I'll almost vomit the moment I taste it.
Coffee flavoured chocolates aren't as bad as the drink, but if the taste lingers for too long, it'll make me sick too. :p

Chacun son goût.  :undecided:

My dirty little secret is that I don't really enjoy most beers (there are some that are genuinely good, but they're inevitably super pricey :sad:). Unless it's really hot out, or am in a social setting, I'd rather just drink soda, coffee, moonshine, tea, or whatever.  :-[

You mean "Disenchantment"?

I don't personally like it. The jokes are too forced. There are some good things about it, though, so I'm still going to watch season 2, whenever that comes around.

Anti-science crap like this makes me die a little inside. Obviously they're getting this from their HR teacher, which means you need to go over there and give him/her/it a good shake (not really).

     At the university in my town there are 2 English professors who are flat-Earthers. The crap they post on my FB feed makes my fingers itch, but since it's a small town, and I don't want to be *that guy*, I usually manage to avoid replying. Sometimes their posts get so bad that I have to "pause" them for 30 days or so.  :huh: >:(

One of them is also a rabid anti-vaxxer, even rabidder anti-globalist, and a Zionist conspiracy believer to boot.  :rolleyes:

I read a couple days ago, that some doctors are starting to refuse to see kids that aren't vaccinated, out of safety for the children that are waiting to be vaxxed / aren't yet old enough for the vaccinations.
