A Distant Memory

April 22nd 2014 21:00




I hate to say this but with Grey One in my life and my mind my favourite boys are becoming a distant memory. I still think about them but not as much as before. This is probably because my daily routine involves getting to my friend's place ASAP to feed Grey One. I also change the kitty litter tray and play with her as well as monitoring the place for any cat turds (thank God my friend was still at work when I found the misplaced turds). Come to think of it, I have even stopped humming my ditty about Butterscotch flying and dancing through the air. This has been replaced by me muttering under my breath "Grey One" and "What I liked about those cats was their consistency" which was a quote from one of my blog posts. I have to force myself to keep the memory of my boys alive. Of course it doesn't help that Brett and I have drifted apart and I have been hanging out with Mr Spoken Word.

Cat Turds

April 21st 2014 21:00




This is not funny. Twice Grey One has left cat turds on the floor. One was in the bathroom and the other was in the living room. According to GO's ex-guardian, she used to poop on the bed when she was angry. And the pooping started after her ex-guardian's wife had a baby.


While it's good to know that GO does have behavioural issues, I'm struggling to work out what has upset her. She likes my friend who is housing her, she obviously loves me as I am the receipient of dozens of headbutts and it's reassuring to know she hasn't yet plopped on the bed. Most importantly, there's no baby around.

"Cats can be possessive," said Karina. "That's why when my sister became pregnant she went to great lengths to get her cat accustomed to the baby."

"It's not as if you can get rid of the baby," said another friend.

"I beg to disagree," I said. "In my household the baby would go."

Just when I thought people could not get any crazier, one did.

I was sitting at the library reading a magazine, waiting for security or one of the librains to tell me it was closing. So far, it had not happened so I kept reading. Suddenly, a man sitting nearby said "The library's closing."

I nodded and kept reading.

"NOW!" he yelled at me.

"ALL RIGHT!" I yelled back, even louder. To spite him, I continued reading while I kept an eye on him. He didn't look like he worked there which was confirned a minute later when the security guard came and said the library was closed. I then left but kept an eye on the pr*ck that yelled at me. I noticed the security guard telling him which floor to go to in order to exit the building. I was about to make a complaint to the security guard when he caught the lift as well.

I then checked with the librarians who confirmed the man did not work there. If I had known earlier, I would have really given it to him. Even though he had backed off it didn't diffuse my anger. As Edmund once said, "You want to take it further." Exactly.

I then spent the evening venting on Facebook, thinking about a lawyer friend who refers to people raising their voices at others as verbal violence and he thinks it is a form of intimidation. That's how I feel when people - especially men - start raising their voices at me even though I am perfectly capable of giving it back - and more. Edmund calls it the Volume technique and he thinks most of my targets are frightened by my retaliatory aggression. Well, they should have thought of that before picking a fight with me.

Foreign Language Speaker Stereotype

April 15th 2014 21:01


Having heard this from a couple of white Australians I can confirm as a Cantonese speaker - and hence, eavesdropper of Cantonese conversations - this is not necessarily true: When people talk in foreign languages they are talking about the white Australians nearby.

What's it to you?

April 14th 2014 21:00


What's wrong with people these days? First they object to me taking water from the water fountain, then they object to me freeganing and now some moron had a go at me for taking newspapers out of the train station recycling bin. I mean, don't these people have anything better to do?

My new key Ring

April 13th 2014 21:00


Okay, it's mine. After two weeks of umming and ahhing I finally got this instead of the matching pencil sharpener. I know, the squirrel still feels flimsy which is a turn off but it's so cute I can use it as an ornament instead. Just the sight of it fills me with joy.

Dead cat Sleeping

April 10th 2014 21:00


No wonder Hill asked me to keep an eye on the GTC during the festive season. Last December I was walking home one night when I noticed several drunks behind me. I stopped to say hello to my wife who was curled up in a ball sleeping.
