Wow. Now I gotta note down that Bradley is an expert on cats.  ;D With all of the things you've said, I think I'll stick to feeding them at the most. (Thinking back, I got peed on by a kitten once. Raising them does seemed like a not so brilliant idea)

It's just that about a year back I had started feeding a stray dog. (well a stray dog my neighbor take in, but let it wander around anyway) I feed him chicken skins and etc. from leftovers and we became fast friends. That made me want to feed the adorable stray cats populating my university grounds too.

I thought you weren't meant to feed them milk?

Anyway, I don't let the cats into my room when I'm sleeping. They lost those privileges. Unfortunately, my wife will insist differently...

@Eclipse, you will like this ;D

This week I did a little scratch on my car, and because it's a company car, I called the company who handles these issues. The lady there was asking me a bunch of questions about the incident, as well as my personal details:
Lady: date of birth?
Me: 23 Dec 69
Lady: is that 1969?
 ::) ::)

No, lady, I'm actually 147 years old :P 8)

Well today in Noraland, I woke up with my face covered in petechiae, aka, blood spots under the skin. Since I was violently sick at night, and have had aching joints all day, I've determined I must have had a bad allergic reaction.
Since I made a cake using copious amounts of food dyes, a first for me–and ate most of it myself–I looked into that.

Turns out I might well be intolerant to red dye, and that might explain my erratic intolerance reactions of the last 10 years.

Might be a mystery solved! Hooray! Now if I could get my face back and loose my cold at the same time before my holidays it'd be awesome...

I preferred my old title but it's good to have a change every now and again keeps things fresh, I must change my sig soon had that a while too.
I'm Saloninus, by the way. And I tell lies, from time to time. Which goes to prove the old rule; never entirely trust a man who talks about himself in the third person.

I was putting my daughter to bed last night and she had one of her fake plastic custom jewelry rings in her room.  After she put on her pajamas she looked at me and said "When you leave make sure you take my precious ring with you."  I am now wondering if my home insurance covers Nazgul attacks.

So, I'm nearing the end of reading all the posts of the last three weeks (more than you probably think). Only the Kings Paws (and everything related to the writing contest) are unread. Wish me luck with the paws now!  ;D

I saw that thing a few days ago! Blew my mind! (If you want proof the lines are straight, hold a ruler up to one so it obscures the line. You'll realize the ruler goes straight across, even though the line looks curved).
