Moronic Monday

Methinks Äiti is finally losing the plot. The plot of a sane life, that is. We have much evidence.  Look at what arrived in the post on Friday! A 'game' involving exploding kittens. My goodness. This is the latest product from The Oatmeal and she gave good money to support this Kickstarter. Why ? She says it brings together two of her joys: the chemistry of explosions and kittens. but not at the same time, please Äiti.
And she has spent a few weeks perfecting 'fake cat poo'.  Although we provide her with ample samples in a variety of colours, sizes, shapes, consistencies and scents, she wanted some that would last. Well, I tell you, Mirsku's logs can last a long time but apparently not long enough. This is for one of her geocaches. Concrete didn't work so she had to use silicone and this is her third attempt. I can make perfect dollops at first try.
And then we discover she has made a 'door' to the spare bedroom. Two things, Loyal Readers: there already is a door to the room and this new thing she hammered together doesn't appear to work. We are still rolling around laughing about this. When is a door not a door ? When Äiti makes it! She says it is not finished and says it is for a Special Purpose. Well, it certainly is special. We are thoroughly enjoying walking through the door at every opportunity and gazing in wonder at its emptiness and inefficiency at doing things doors should do - like closing rooms.
And finally, some of you Loyal Readers know that Äiti is doing really insane running at the moment and is going to the origin of the Britcats in October to run a marathon. We are horrified by this (and to be honest so is she) so she is trying to motivate herself by raising money for Cancer Research UK. If you give her money she might just make it to the finish line.

Excellent poo work! Our Mommy would love to be present when the humans find this. MOL!

You have piqued our interest in the door that's not a door. What game does Aiti play at????

Lastly, we just want to say that Mommy only uses your calendar and has immensely enjoyed seeing the handsome Stran this month. He is greatly missed by all of us.

That poo looks like an EMOTICON poo!

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In other news, WE know what the door is for...looking good!

Gigi said...

We (well, the Human) was quite disappointed to learn that fake poo was not chocolate.

We are very interested in what this door failure will turn into. ::alert for news::

Now, THAT is going to be an interesting geocache find!

Bwahaha! Somebody is going to have a surprise when they find that geocache! I wonder what that door can be for.

Jenna said...

The human says she'd worry about any poo coming from me that looks like that!

Be very wary of anything a human says has a "special purpose" :(

How can your mommy give you kitties attention when she's training for a marathon? She needs to get her priorities straightened out!

That rather mean-spirited, the cat poo. Oh well , the cat card game sounds really fun.
Late crazy uncle would say a door is not a door when it's "ajar". ( God help him.) Could it be a window?
