Quincy the Cat: Mountain Climber

Apparently life has been a little boring for Quincy the cat lately. The toy mouse chasing and escaping into the garage has lost it's charm.

At least that's what I assume, since he's taken up a new hobby; mountain climbing.

Of course, being an indoor cat, his access to real mountains is kind of limited. So he has settled for using his imagination and various high things.

1 week ago:

I woke up to a weird noise. Already suspicious, I turned on my beside light to find this scene:

He was actually trying to jump on top of a 6 foot book shelf. I said "think about what you're doing, Quincy." But he just stared at me while balancing on the desk. I think he knew he'd bit off more than he could chew though, since he stood there for 3 minutes until I got up and helped him down.

3 days ago:

I woke up at 1 am to find Quincy balancing on my hips and looking about as pleased as if he'd climbed Everest. Which I find really insulting. My hips are not that big, Quincy.

Last night:

We were watching "Home Alone 2" to get in the Christmas spirit. Quincy was wandering around, but he wasn't getting into too much trouble so I wasn't paying attention. I guess that was my mistake.

1 minute later:

Sigh. I tried threatening to take away his Christmas present (It's a cat tent I found at the Dollar Store), but he doesn't seem to care. He will once he plays in it though. It's totally awesome.

Baggy Pants : Crafty Conspiracy or Poorly Designed Fashion Choice?

Posted by K 

I'm starting to wonder if the "baggy pants" fashion was created by really clever people in law enforcement. Seriously, in the last 5 episodes of COPS I've seen, there has been at least one guy attempting to flee arrest only to get tripped up by his pants.

And then they have the added fun of being handcuffed with their colourful boxers on display. Pretty freaking embarrassing. Makes me wonder why they agreed to have their face shown on tv. One of life's little mysteries I guess.

These random thoughts are brought to you by the guy in front of me at the bus station who made a run for the 95 only to have his pants take a bit of a dive. Logging that in the "images to be scrubbed from my brain" category.

I don't really feel like drawing this image right now (it was traumatizing enough in person), so instead, here is a drawing of Kirby using only computer symbols:

Someone showed me that in high school, and I was like "my mind is blown!!". That was back in the days before we had the wide range of emoticons available today. When you instant messaged someone with a sarcastic comment you had to write "(sarcasm)" after it to make sure they didn't take you seriously. I had more misunderstandings over such things than I care to mention.
