Watching a cat contemplate suicide.

Since I am (still) painting my room and the weather has been fabulous, I have my window open. Yes. My one window. As I was busily caulking, something, I watched the cat leap to the open window and gaze down to the ground, a mere two stories below.

I thought about rescuing him, it, her, whatever. Knowing that if I said I WATCHED the cat kill itself, I could potentially not bode quite so well for me. But, at the same time, to BE ABLE TO SAY I watched a cat commit purposeful murder of itself, would be SO WORTH IT.

After a quick moral debate, the bragging rights won out. And then, the furry bugger had to ruin my morning BY NOT JUMPING. Sitting. Looking. TAUNTING.

Yes. I am a disturbed person if I get such enjoyment out of watching animals kill themselves. Don't bother telling me, I already know.

On the bright side, this is a sign of normalcy!

    I used to have a cat that would do the same thing...I know she was thinking about jumping but never did.

    On a different note, I can not blogroll your site. When I try, I get your old site. Not sure if you can fix this, but it is damn annoying. Anyone else ever have this problem. Not being annoyed, but blogrolling you?

    Nevermind. Had to trick bloglines, but finally got the right address. Funny site I will be back.

    You'd be amazed at what cats can survive falling, I mean, jumping off of. Not that I'm admitting to anything, but they can leap from a 2nd story window with no problem so long as they don't land on concrete.

    Ever painted a cat? Not that I'm suggesting you do it, but there are washable paints that won't hurt them and you can make all sorts of wild patterns on their fur. Somewhere around here I have photos to prove it.

    you're a sick, sad little man steve..with way too much time on your hands lol. My cat's hair actually knotted up so badly on her back that i actually shaved it. Not the Whole thing..just the bottom of her back. poor thing looked like George from seinfeld...maybe i have too much time on my hands..

This odd narrative is my life. I ended up in Pittsburgh, of all places--from the beach. I have no hobbies, other than cooking excessively and eating microwave popcorn. I enjoy shopping, the Food network, hiding the remote so the Food network cannot be turned off, find ethnic food stores and restaurants and reading voraciously. My life is decidedly pedestrian.

I worked in the car business where I was required to be ruthless and soul-less wench, which is when I started this project. Since then, I've kept it up because secretly, I've always wanted to join the military. Every male in my mother's family has joined and I quietly entertain thoughts of joining. I haven't yet and don't know if I ever will, but sending the troops cookies keeps me sane. it makes me think I still have a shred of human kindness left in my withering soul. it's a small way for me to salute the men and women who are brave enough to fight for freedom. And makes me feel like I'm contributing toward troop morale--even if I'm not. So if you want to help, send me addresses of troops you know stationed overseas. you may also contribute toward the cost of chocolate chips, but don't feel obligated, that link is here only by request.
