Mom, what's a putt?

Putt is a golf term. It means to hit a ball with a golf club.

Ooh, ouch, that's gotta hurt!

Rent A Bag...

This just in...

You can RENT a designer handbag (or jewelry) HERE

I just have one question...

If you slip up and skip your weekly handbag payment--do the rent-a-cops break down your door and take their bag back?


What if you're out in public at a fashion event(swinging your designer bag making your fellow wenches green with envy) when you suddenly find yourself face down on the marble tile with a rent-a-cop ridin' your back, shakin' the contents outta yer bag.


Mmm hmm.

Best have yerself a backup plan, Sistah!

Monday Blogland Report

I've made my rounds in blogland--but I've only had time to catch up on what you all have been up to and have been neglectful on leaving my scratch marks in your sandboxes. So...

What did I learn on my travels?

Aafrica is on Spring Break and currently whiling her free time away on Crepe munching and Jack-n-Coke sippage.
Jealous...I'm so jealous...

Arnolds In China have apparently left China and headed back to their home state of Washington (WOO!). I am still waiting for an update from them. *stares in their general direction and drums my claws*

Bob-a-roo has consumed his St Patricks day feast EARLY without saving any leftovers for a hungry Kat (stares balefully at him) and apparently has followed up this travesty by wedging his dogs into mini bikini's. *shakes my head and tsks* (I blame it on over consumption of Country music...mmmm hmm. 'splains it all!)

Catwoman is busy growin a wee cat person in her belly. This Kat is most excited for her as I know how wonderful of a Momma she already is from reading her little man posts (even if she DID let the dog chew the brains outta her plastic baby doll the doctor gave her...) Its true. I couldn't make this shizzle up, Peeps!

Cindy is currently trapped inside her house with wild children of the corn and feverishly plotting a way to escape early to her fantabulous Disneyland trip. I'm very excited for her and hopes she has time to slink by Vancouver to visit a certain Kat (hint hint) when she passes by this way!

This is the latest picture from Cuteoverload (Lord I love this site. Ah have an ahdiction!) *shake shake shake*

Dragonlady apparently has a new ride and has been busy zooming around on it instead of posting new pictures of it so we can SEE it! *stares meaningfully in her general direction and drums a claw*

EdgyKay has made me wait so long for another hilarious post from her that she has officially passed her impatience on to me! * Z snaps in her direction: get on it, girlie or I'm gonna have to hunt you down!*

FlipFlop Momma's 11 year old spawn has a birthday today! A big shout out to the Saint Patricks day wee year-long-inducing-hemorrhoid earthling. Booya!

This is today's picture from the Hungarian Cuteoverload type blog I have a second addiction to.

It's a sickness, Peeps--with no cure in sight!

Indigo, a fellow cat loving blog lady, has proven that if one consumes enough cheese smothered nachos (the size of a small planet) one will win favor with the nacho serving restaurant owner and win a free--plate of nachos! *stick a lime on my Corona, Chickie, I'm heading on over!* I need me some free nachos! Mmmm...with jalapenos on them. Mmmmm.

Jadey, fantabulous Momma to Myst, continues to amaze me with her resilience and sweet spirit. Love the pic of you, Jadey!

apparently has taken down her blog shingle. You need to put it back up, Chickie! Blogland isn't the same without it! You can't let the critic's silence your voice :)
**update** apparently she has hung her shingle in a new neighborhood, HERE hurrah!

Laochies beloved Julian is ailing. I have wore out a spot on his blog rug from all my pacing, waiting for an update! Hope all is well, Laochie.

Mei Lian is apparently busy with life and her Coastie. I miss her updates on her life with the Bing family and her trials with arrogant Engineers who mistakenly try to step on her: a quiet, sweet woman with a backbone of steel.

, AKA Microsoft Guru (which by the way--I have this annoying pop-up problem in IE that I cannot get rid of--even though I fixed the settings in the Registry--grrrr--any hints sent my way to fix this GRRR'ing problem would be greatly appreciated! *grins winsomely in your direction*)---apparently is living in a State that celebrates an ancient frozen Dude sitting in dry ice in his relatives shed.
Dude...that's just*flings up my hands and walks away muttering...*

I love me some Postsecret. Every Sunday I religiously pour over this site to see the latest Secrets that Freaks have sent in. I love seeing evidence that I'm not the only strange person out there!

Slicks Blog is one of the last places I visit (don't get your ruffled panties in a twist, Slickness, it's only 'cuz my list is alphabetical and your name is way down at the bottom)*tsk* you gotta explain these things to him else he takes it personal and gets his revenge at me by posting pictures of chicks with excess vaginal fur or men with back hair wedged into a size 0 thong. *shudders and soothes my eye twitch*
So Dude, enlighten me...last time I heard you didn't get your house but now you write that you're moving--does this mean things have changed and you DID get your house?? I hope so, Slickness!! *crossing my fingers for you* (and not just cuz I'm afraid of your eye candy posts---well ok--I lied--I'm afraid. Very. Very. Afraid. *whimper*)

Smizzo is apparently on a road trip to Vegas. She keeps taunting me with pictures. I'm J.e.a.l.o.u.s. I need me a vacation. STAT!

Perez Hiltons site I have labeled Snarky Hollywood Gossip--cuz that's what it is. He's rude, crude and well, let's face it--Hilarious! Reading his blog is sort of like watching the proverbial train wreck. You shudder, but you can't look away! How else am I gonna get my minute by minute update on all the Hollywood Freaks?! I got needs, Peeps. NEEDS!

I finish my blog walk with Mrs X. She doesn't post often enough (stares in her direction and subtly *coughs*) but its always worth a visit to see pics of her adorable babies! I started reading her blog when she was preggers with her baby girl--who's now 6months old!! Actually--soon to be 7 months, now. Where oh where has the time gone?

That's your Blog update for this week, Peeps.

See? I have been busy busy busy--but I always take time out to slink by and visit my favorite Peeps.

Kat hugs!

Friday, Friday: Busy Weekend Ahead

It's my Friday, Peeps! However, I have a very busy weekend ahead of me.

Packing, Packing, Packing--with not enough boxes and not enough storage room in sight!


On another note:

While I appreciate the concern from well meaning friends...if one more person asks me (today) what I plan to do when my job is up in May---I'm gonna bite them.

*bares fangs*

"UGH" of the Day

By Mike Celizic contributor

Dr. Laura Schlessinger has never been one to shrink from controversy, and she leaped headlong into one on Monday when she said that if a husband cheats, his wife may share some of the blame.

“When the wife does not focus in on the needs and the feelings, sexually, personally, to make him feel like a man, to make him feel like a success, to make him feel like her hero, he’s very susceptible to the charm of some other woman making him feel what he needs,” the popular psychologist and radio personality said...

Lord have mercy--I read this and wanted to reach through my computer and slap this moron.

In what Universe does a man or woman have the right to demand that their partner be responsible for his or her morale choices?

You make a promise to someone, you don't betray them and then blame your betrayal of them on them.

Someone check her credentials. Doctor, indeed.


There's a kid in MiniWarriors class that has been fighting with him.

He broke MiniWarriors glasses with a basketball to the face.

He's called MiniWarrior names.

The other day when I picked up MiniWarrior from school, he was frustrated and fighting back tears because he had had another fight with this (punk) kid.

Now my instincts were to march right back into school and find this kid to let him have it over making my MiniWarrior cry--but that would make MiniWarrior a Momma's boy and wouldn't help matters.

Still...a casual kid tripping Mom leg thrown out as the (punk) kid ran by me on the playground was a fantasy I dwelt on a bit.

A week went by where I heard nothing more of the (punk) kid bullying MiniWarrior so I put my trip-the-punk dream in the back page of my mental revenge book.

This past weekend MiniWarrior and I were driving home from shopping when he said:

"Mom, I've decided that (punk kid) and I are going to be sorta friends now."

"You have?"

"Yeah, cuz you know, he's got some problems but he's learning how to be better."

"He is, huh?"

"Yeah. We're all sort of learning so I've got to be patient with him."

"Well that's really mature, Hun. That's very mature, actually. I'm proud of you."

"Thanks, Mom."

"Hey Mom, have you ever seen (punk kid)'s drawings?"

"No. I never have, is he good?"

"Oh yes! He's really good."

"You know what?"

"What, Hun."

"I think the next time I see his Mom and Dad I am going to tell them that he is a really good draw-er and that they should take him to a class for drawing."

I turned and looked at my MiniWarrior and felt consumed, again, with the wonderment that follows when I am allowed to glimpse the insides of his heart.

His heart is so big it engulfs everyone around him and wraps them up in the sweetness that is, MiniWarrior.

I'm humbled, Peeps. Humbled.

Busy Busy Kat-a-roo!

I've been busy packing for the new house.

I need 100 book boxes.

Anyone? Anyone?

The living room is crammed with filled book boxes. I'm afraid if I stack them any higher we are going to lose a pet underneath should a collapse occur!

Hope everyones weekend is going grandly.

MiniWarrior and Lord V are away--so...the Kat must play!

MiniWarrior has a problem understanding that everything does not have feelings, IE: Sticks, rocks...

Lord V and I took him on a little hike along the Portland boardwalk this weekend, overlooking the Willamette River.

"Hey, Miniwarrior, let's toss sticks in the water and see who's races down the river faster." I said, picking up two sticks laying on the ground.

"No, Mom!" MiniWarrior exclaimed, his brow furled in anxious lines. "The sticks will get lonely!"

"Honey, the sticks won't get lonely."

"Why, don't sticks have feelings?"

"No, only things with souls have feelings." I explained.

oh cripes, how do I explain what a soul is to him now?

"And don't ask me what a soul is. I don't know if I can explain it to you."

"Oh, I know what a soul is." MiniWarrior said with a nod of his head.

"You do?"


"So, what do you think a soul is?" I asked, intensly curious as I have never really discussed religion or the various philosophies surrounding that topic with him.

"It's the place right here." He said thumping his chest by his heart. "It's the place that holds all my feelings and remembers them."

I blinked and stared at him for a minute, speechless in the face of amazing brilliance that is, MiniWarrior.

I reached over and enfolded him into my arms pressing him close to my soul. "You're absolutely right, MiniWarrior."

Absolutely, fantastically, right.

New Toy!

I apologize for my lack of blogging---but I've been busy with my new toy!

Lookie...lookie! Isn't it purrrrrrrrty?? *girlie squeal*
