Doldrums And Funnies

It's been a doldrums kind of week, one where you start to question the meaning of life and lie on the couch with a nineteen-point-five-pound cat on your stomach while you read a ten-pound book and worry that you are getting tennis elbow from holding it up. The book, I mean. The cat merely causes breathing problems.

In other - perhaps related - news, there have been no crises in my life this week, no appointments of any kind, no work deadlines, no meetings . . . and I can think of nothing to write about. There is no adrenaline keeping me alert, no embarrassing moments to pass along, no hurdles hurdled, no accomplishments except the usual rounds of meal-making, laundry, and cat care.

So, it must be time for some funnies. I'm starting to forget which ones I've used, so please excuse me if I repeat any. Thanks, as always, to icanhas.cheezburger.com for the memes.

In no particular order . . .



This actually seems like a darn good idea to me.




Twelve might even be overestimating.




For once, the cat is not the one in trouble.




Works every time, no matter what's in the can!



 

That's how I've felt all week all month as long as I can remember.

 


I bet the cat will win every time.




Was "that thing" a large dog, by any chance?




Man, the dogs are not faring well in these funnies, are they?? That wasn't planned. It's just a horrible coincidence.




Neither. It's a head bonk.




That would be AWESOME :)



Wishing you a weekend of safe passwords, unchewed shoes, un-missing game pieces, and warm fuzzy head bonks. See you on Monday :)

  1. Some nice looking pictures of cats, there. I often think that I should get one. Then I remember that we’ve got two already. I don’t see much of ours but i’m kept up to date with whatever mischief they’re causing. I thought we wouldn’t get any more snow but I was wrong. We did.

    1. And there is no shortage of mischief, I bet :) We are getting more snow here as well. But we are supposed to have snow while you aren't!

  3. Sometimes things are just sort of ho-hum, right? I love the "cat in hibernation mode"!

    1. Yep, ho-hum is exactly the word. It's good, but it's . . . weird . . .

    1. Me too, Joanne. Actually I've been trying for five years now. Her weight never changes.

  6. Warm fuzzy head bonks are nice. Only one of my cats does that but that's okay.

    I've had the same kind of week. We got another dump of snow right when it all started to melt, and that's not helping. Hopefully this is the last of it. I'm trying to be optimistic!

    Loved the funnies! Happy weekend.

    1. You need to start doing reverse snow dances, Martha! Even if it doesn't work, it will pass the time :)

    1. Will do! I'm looking forward to your poem! It's a great topic but I'm not making much headway with it!

  8. Our cat has expanded quite a bit since he showed up here. I don't know how much he weighs, but as his belly became more visible I teased him for a while by calling him "blobcat"... He didn't care, so long as the tuna kept coming.
    I did have a cat drop something on me once: it knocked a potted plant off of the windowsill above where I was reading while trying to jump up there. It landed more on my shoulder than my head, but still...

    1. Nah, cats don't care about anything as trivial as a human's opinion . . .

      Yikes on the plant - I bet your feng shui was all wrong with the pot on the windowsill anyhow :)

  9. A head bonk can make a lot of things better.
    I hope your weekend is filled with fur and purrs. And that the purrs are literal AND metaphorical.

    1. Don't worry, Chicken; I'll forget it within a day or two anyway :)

  13. I like all of the funnies! The one about normal service resuming when the can opener starts seems to sum up my whole life :)

    Have a lovely weekend!

  15. Head bonks mean love? that makes me happy, Angel used to give me head bumps. I'm trying to teach Lola, but she's not keen. Yet.

    1. But when she does, you'll know them for what they are. Our kitty that looks like Lola didn't do head bonks for a long time, but she does now :) It will happen!
