So I've owned one of those electric cat boxes, which had a rake that combs through the litter about 10 minutes after the cat uses it, for a little over two years now. While you can buy them now with timers so that it won't run during the night, mine's a little too old to have that. And it's in the bedroom because I refuse to feature a catbox in the living room and there's no other place for it. So in the middle of the night, when the cat does her thing, I am often awakened by the horrible SKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE the motor makes, and in fact this morning I ended up getting up an hour before my normal wake-up time because there was no way I was getting back to sleep afterwards.
And now I feel like an idiot, because it took me two years to figure out that maybe I could try one of those timers you can set your lights on. Two years, folks, TWO YEARS.
I am only slightly mollified by the fact that none of the people I complained to over the past two years has ever suggested it to me.
I've been reloading and tweaking and reloading the Cool Bits Story Generator so long now that everything is starting to blend together, and I'm misreading things. For instance, I just now misread The villain is a lady who is not what she seems who has a thigh holster as The villain is a lady who is not what she seems who has a thigh lobster and had a serious WTF?! moment, because I know I hadn't put anything about lobsters into the generator.
said that someone should make a Cracktastic Bits generator like the Cool Bits generator, so rachelmanija
is soliciting your favorite cracktastic bits
from fiction, (any genre, although anime and manga and videogames give good crack).
23 min., 4 mi. 356 mi. total. Camped near a bridge, and back on the Great East Road!
Weird time because I biked until Inu-Yasha was over. :)
writers need a Hakkai/Gojyo prompt? There are plaintive cries for this one over on fandom_lounge
.*Your story begins with an orphan in a library. The villain is a sympathetic demon who has an unnatural eye color. Plot elements include sweat dripping down someone's forehead and the twitch of an eye.
* Journalfen has been up and down today like an up and down thing, so if you want to read the thread and can't, try again in a few minutes.
I have been ORDERED by text message to go to this VGCats strip
and then blog about it. So I have. You might want to mosey on over. :)And my icon is even appropriate!
