seasonal stupidity

Four stupid things I have read lately.

A man at a restaurant 'ducked' to avoid a tossed shrimp, jerked his head, had to have an operation (whether related or not to the incident is being decided by a court), and died a year later.

Hello? If you don't want to see food flying, don't go to a teppanyaki restaurant. Idiots.

A 19 year old man broke his leg while trying to kill a spider. What an idiot.

We have spiders like this in our house all the time, my human and I leave them alone as they eat other bugs.

A woman marries a dolphin.

What a moron.

People who go away for holidays and don't arrange for neighbours or friends to feed their dog or walk it.

Neglect is cruelty by another name.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


Today was a much cooler day outside but the house doesn't always cool down from previous warm days.

Merlin's human Kim came over tonight for a dinner of tandoori lamb chops with rice and blanched broccolini. Afterwards they watched Austin Powers in Goldmember. I napped on the floor, but it sounded like a lot of fun. I did get to sit on her lap for a short period.

You'd never catch me ducking if someone tossed a prawn my way!
