I was just sitting in the La-Z-Boy with dogs on my lap, relaxing, waiting for Kansas to destroy WVU at 9 on ESPN, when I took a paw to the head. After jumping up and dumping the dogs, I looked over, and this is what I saw:

kittyoverlord

I had no idea he was there, the stealthy fat bastard. I eagerly await one of you trying to tell me that is a look of love rather than complete contempt coming from him. To give you an idea how close to me this murderous and cantankerous feline was when he ambushed me, here is how close Tunch was to Admiral Adama’s head (that’s how I fancy myself at home, thank you very much), check this out:

damnedcat

Cat was all up in my grill and I didn’t even know, and the dogs didn’t warn me either. They are all working together, I know it.

    My childhood cat used to do the same thing to my dad. The cat would hide on the top bunk of my bed and as my dad walked in (or walked out) to kiss me goodnight the cat would stealthily reach out a paw and try to knock off my dad’s glasses. He succeeded nine times out of ten.

    So I survived Root Canal Part Deux today. I told the endodontist that I usually have a very sore jaw after procedures, so he gave me what he called a “tooth pillow,” which is apparently a happier-sounding euphemism for a bite block. It really did seem to help, though — my jaw is much less sore this time around.

    (Basically, a lot of people get a sore jaw if they have to keep their mouth open for a long time, so the bite block lets you switch between using your “jaw opening” muscles and your “jaw closing” muscles since you can bite down on it when you get tired of keeping your jaw open. At least, that’s how he explained it to me.)

    My personal preferance is nitrous oxide and good local numbing of the gums around the “worksite”. The damned rubber dam and other bulky appliances that they put in my mouth, I think, are what make things sore. The actual root canal removes the nerve from the tooth itself, so there is only the pain of the shit that they do to the surrounding tissue and teeth. I have been fortunate. I think that the wonderful relaxation brought on by the nitrous helps the perfusion of the tissues and brings on a sense of wellbeing as I hum absently through the music in my headphones..

    My husband, on the other hand, eschews all such civilizing treatments, preferring to grip the chair with white nuckled determination and a desire to remain “clear headed” throughout what can only be characterized as an “ordeal”.

    Not me. Give me hot lights, cold steel and all biochemical assistance.

    @Elie:

    I have to drive a long way to see this endodontist (because I trust him, not because there aren’t others closer to me) so he’s reluctant to give me nitrous without having someone there to drive me home. But I know that he’s going to pump me full of novocaine and let me wear my headphones, so it’s no problem. Seriously, it’s about 7 hours after I was injected and I’m just getting the feeling back in my right ear.

    The one time I did have nitrous, it didn’t do much for the pain of getting the novocaine injected, but it did make me not care that I was in pain. It was kinda weird.

    I’m the polar opposite of a Huggy-Bear fan, but it has to be said that he plays by the rules and his players mostly graduate (albeit with degress in things like Exercise and Recreation Science). The only thing he has in common with Calipari seems to be bad hair.

    My most beloved kitty cat, Leona, would react to my too-frequent-for-her newspaper reading by sitting in front of my chair and punching at the back of the paper. Got the paper held out in front, digging into page 5- *punch*! *punch*! *punch*! every 10 seconds or so. Eventually, I’d raise the paper higher to stop the harassment- *hop*! into my lap, Leona would, and immediately curl up and make herself at home.

    General Stuck says:

    Josh Green reports that a team of top Obama donors decided to surprise Hillary Clinton — “and thank her for her loyal service” — by raising enough money to pay off her 2008 campaign bills.

    “The challenge was tougher than it may appear, since it required a particular kind of donor. In order not to run afoul of campaign finance laws, the Obama team had to find people who had not already given Clinton the 2008 maximum primary donation of $2,300 or maxed out their total federal candidate donations during the 2012 cycle ($46,200). And of course, those people also had to be warmly disposed toward Clinton and still have plenty of free cash on hand.”

    I really love this story. It is the kind of magnanimous gesture from former bitter rivals, that can help the dem party become a solid favorite of most voters well into the future. Overall, except from a few internet quarters, I don’t recall the dem party, especially in congress being more on the same page, ideologically, and with a clear sense of who the enemy is, and a degree of subjugation of individual will for the common good of the party, that has historically been uncommon for democrats. The GOP is in some deep shit all the way round.

    The republicans are starting to pay a price for their abuse of built in minority rights to our system. And the voters should be the ones to reign them in. Dems breaking rules to change the rules would only shift the spotlight of wingnuts behaving badly, onto scurrilous democrats cheating. If a scotus seat comes available, and the nutters try to filibuster , then I think Reid could safely nuke the filibuster for executive session, but not for legislation. Which is what the wingers were going to do years ago when Bush was president.

I’d stumble out of bed, head for the shower, and kitty would leap from her hiding place, sink four paws of claws into my calf and bite. It would zip off before I even finished screaming the first profanity.

    It’s other favorite means for trying to kill me involved trying to ‘show affection’ by rubbing up against my leg as I was walking, with the effect of tripping me.

    And does this sound to anyone like someone was thinking in terms of martyrdom?

    Unidentified 22 year old man takes loaded AR-15 to local Kroger grocery store in Charlottesville to make a point about his second amendment rights.
    Charlottesville police say the man who showed up at a Kroger grocery store with a loaded gun wanted to make a point. On Sunday, an unidentified 22-year-old man carried a loaded AR-15 into the Kroger store […]
    Police say he was cooperative and did nothing illegal. Officers did find a note in his pocket spelling out his intent to express his 2nd Amendment rights. Police say they could not release man’s name because he was not arrested.

    That look is one of murderous complete contempt.

    It could be worse – a friend of mine has two male cats who, if they took a dislike to an overnight guest, expressed their dislike by peeing on the bed. While occupied by friend and guest, usually at six in the morning or thereabouts.

    Guests addressed this way never came back.

    You are completely mistaken. Tunch would take an AR-15 load for you any day. Or at least he’d arrange for Lily to take it for you.

    here is how close Tunch was to Admiral Adama’s head

    Pah. Feline amateur. At least the Cylons managed to gutshoot the guy.

    There are now Valentine’s Day cards from your cat (that’s correct, not to your cat but from your cat). Hate to say that I bought one to give to SO. Remind him of the pecking order in the household.

    BTW, why not expand from BJ calendars to VD cards from Tunch et al?

    He also said he would sign a bill that phased it in over three years.

    BUt since firebagging assholes don’t understand a complex story, I guess you missed that part, or are willfully ignoring it.

    Asshole.

    I eagerly await one of you trying to tell me that is a look of love rather than complete contempt coming from him.

    Shit, I’ve been a cat owner most of your life. Contempt? He can’t wait to do it again and make the fat monkey dance. You’re not even his slave, you’re just there for his amusement.

    Sorry for not being adequately fair and balanced to BJ’s favorite Republican.

    Gov. Straight Talk supports phasing in an increase that in 3-years will still be $0.25 less per hour than the one he vetoed now.

    Funny that the definition of firebagger now extends to criticism of Republicans that Juicers like.
