don't you want feral cats to deal with the rodents?

My new place is in some kind of (nearly) rodent-free twilight zone. The only rat I've seen in the year I've lived here was... a dead one the cats got. So you might be on to something.

Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Monthly professional association meeting. Ninety minutes I'll never get back, in exchange for 1.5 continuing education units. TPW appreciated. 

Oof.  I’m going to be taking 4 units of “professional development” in the next few weeks.  Decent little salary bump but it’s going to be about as fun as reading 3 pages of MayoChat.

First of all...SUMMERS OFF

But when my wife has the same days off that I do it’s a killer.

Today: 

Trip to Home depot

Trip to Bloodbath and Beyond

Painted an entire bathroom

Removed old, crappy blinds on two windows

Installed new blinds

Trip to grocery store

And even more tomorrow.

I just want to be fat on my couch.

Feral cat abandoned 2 of its 5 kittens in my back yard. My better half hates cats with a burning passion. I'd rather not have kittens die in my yard. Anyone ever deal with this? Anyone in Brooklyn want a couple cats?

If recent comments from some of the goobers around here are any indication, you can just slather some mayo on them.  That should clear the kitten problem right up (or at least convince your better half that they are now far more delicious than if you soaked them in butter like Hey-seuss intended, which I suppose also takes care of the issue).

@Uruk-Hai, I received a Nica update today, and it is not good.  Apparently a new crackdown in Masaya started over the weekend and is spreading.  Some info here.   The getting-too-close-for-comfort news is that one of Julio's friends as well as his barber have been "disappeared."  From Julio's current employer:  "Spoke with him today and he said older folks say this is worse than the 80s because at least during the war nobody was pulled from private houses, but now they’re watching FB and have paid “spies” in neighborhoods. It’s ####### unbelievable. We are supposed to talk on Thurs after he meets with another lawyer about getting a Costa Rican visa in order to do an interview in CR for his US tourist visa... or something like that? Didn’t make much sense to me, but at this point I have no idea what’s going on or what kind of processes should be followed. I do know he pulled both Santy and Norlan out of school, which worries me on so many levels.."

Not good.  And nothing to do.

It's been a minute since Owens played organized football. He last played in the NFL back in 2010 for the Bengals and he did get a cup of coffee with the Seattle Seahawks for about a month (but never played) in 2012.

So I'm in the waiting area waiting for my wife who's having her hip replaced. I just saw a nurse walking thru the area with part of a new hip. I can imagine that conversation in the OR....

Doc: uh we're missing the hinge from this hip

Nurse: oh ####, brb!

I hope the operation goes well and your wife has a speedy recovery.  My mom had both of her hips replaced (2 separate surgeries) and she is feeling much better now, so hopefully it will go as well for your wife.  From what I understand, it's a common procedure so chances are should work out well.

Sorry to hear about this.  I hope your friends are ok and can find their way out of there.

Whenever I have the day off my wife just asks me not to get to drunk until after she gets home.  God bless low expectations.  One time I fixed a sink.  You would have thought i was the king of egypt.

Are you doing this at your house?  Are you collecting money?  Are you Mark Cuban?

I've developed a small addiction to chicken salad.  For the better part of my entire life, I ignored this delicacy and considered it a feeble order at any diner or eatery.  But now, I find myself grilling extra chicken just so I can make chicken salad for sandwiches.  Last night, I think I made enough to feed the Harlem Globetrotters for a week.  I don't even really like mayonnaise and yet, here I am dumping it out into a bowl like I'm going to take a swan dive into it.  I had one sandwich already today.  I'm about to go fix another one.  I might even take it back home from work so I can have one or more for dinner.  I need professional help.

I'm not sure what the correct answer is.  The only reason I am posting this is because I wanted to make sure I contributed nothing today.
