Also Too, Olympic Eating

Steve was apparently pissed with Rosie and Lily being the only athletes in the house, and really upped his game during dinner:


That was actually my fault because I was talking on the phone while feeding him and put his bowl on the wrong spot, and there wasn’t room for him and the bowl.

    Now THAT ought to be an Olympic event – gymnastic feline eating, maybe.

    Nine-point-five from the East German judge!

    I like that green bowl. I would eat out of that.

    So well mannered! I know plenty of cats who would have knocked it to the floor and gotten their graze on.

    @Garbo: He was probably going to do that but then decided he was hungry so he would eat it there instead.

    No cat ever let mere awkwardness get between him and chow.
    But he will punish you later for making him look like a dork.

    It’s okay to make the cat put a little effort in to getting his food, in my opinion.

    Nice cat tree, btw.

    There’s a lot of people very jealous of you right now.

    Clearly they are just in it for the fat gay cash flow.

    @Culture of Truth: I would say that I am in love with every single member of the women’s curling teams…but it’s more like raw animal lust.
    I have never seen so many women just drop it like it’s hot.

    ETA, unrequited, to be sure!…again…*sobs gently*

    Holy shit. Canada v Russia women’s curling.

    @Corner Stone: Curling is fairly big in WI – all that ice; can’t play hockey or fish on all of it. I have never seen the appeal. If you want a sport featuring brooms and ice, try broomball.

    Fuck you curling haters.

    OTOH, I’ve forgotten most of the rules since I haven’t watched it in 4 years.

    @Corner Stone: Heh Le Guy and I were watching the two Canadian games (Japanese and Russian) live over the weekend and yeah, the women’s teams are all lovely, a mix of hawt soccer moms and fresh teenagers.

    Meanwhile, the men’s teams tend more to the typically middle-aged look. But all curlers are pretty damn graceful and flexible, no matter their body type, although I really despair of the wear and tear on their knees.

    I love this unironically. Hey it’s a skill event.

    one would think a person name corner stone might have an edge though.

    @Corner Stone:

    Nothing more than being gay? You do know, right now, Sam is the first high level D1 player that’s ever come out, right? Nod your head; very good. You also know he’s the first NFL draft pick that is out, right? Nod again; ok, good, your Pavlovian response appears adequate. So, this shit about getting deals for nothing but being gay is a load of crap, isn’t it?

    Actually, you know what other player turned out to be a stiff? Let me tell you, his name has come up recently: TTim Tebow. You think he is doing OK? Nod your head again; GOOD BOY. Now, you can say Tebow got 1st Round money and Sam will get who knows what round money, and you’d be right, but I don’t think rookie contracts are massively different between the 1st and the 3rd rounds (that’s why they all want to get to that second contract, which I don’t think Tebow ever got and we’re back to him being a stiff and doing fine).

    Have to conclude that those individuals who compete in skeleton or luge either one (hard for me to tell the difference) are covered somewhere in DSM V somewhere

    @danielx: Head first or feet first. God, I want to do skeleton. Specifically, I want to do the the Cresta Run at St. Moritz where it started. There is a club for people who go off the course at the Shuttlecock corner; it even has its own tie. I do kind of want that tie.

    ETA: If you want to suggest that I have issues, okay, fine.

    Corner Stone says:

    @The Dangerman: Why do you keep lying about what you have repeatedly said here?
    You said Sam has endorsements, but you can’t link to any. You said he’d be fine if he never played a down, was a stiff, and would not need to find a normal job. Your proof of this is the example of Tebow.
    There is zero basis of comparison for Tebow, who as a QB won a national championship, the Heisman, was drafted in the 1st round and is straight vs Michael Sam. Tebow started several games, won a playoff game and is now employed as a commentator for the SEC TV channel.
    Your argument is that Michael Sam is somehow comparable to Tim Tebow because some people don’t like Tim Tebow?
    Please. Before you open your stupid fucking mouth again, first tell us what endorsement deal Michael Sam has actually signed. That is your statement, not mine. That he has signed endorsements. When I called you on it you crawfished. Point to one. Prove one.
    You’re just a lying bigot. Either prove it up or shut the fuck up you fucking piece of shit.

    Lying idiot.

    I assume he’s talking about crawfish having the ability to escape by moving backward very rapidly, so “crawfishing” would be rapidly backing away from one’s statements.

    crawfish, per the urban dictionary

    To try and take back what you just said. In reference to the way a crawfish swims/walks — backwards.

    this is a most informative blog

    PS: funny picture. Could use it in a captioning contest.

    Cole, if you truly love this cat as much as you claim, then go look at the photos that you took of Steve when he first moved in and then look at this one. You are killing him with food and obesity. That is NOT love. That is pure, unadulterated selfishness on your part.

    Take what you have learned about your buddy this week on helping him find his health with controlling his diabetes and then examine what exactly you are doing to the animals under YOUR care and YOUR food control.

    While you are doing all your research on human diet and what a horror diabetes is, why don’t you take the moment to do the same research on what you are doing to Steve by making him obese and unhealthy.

    I am not going to let up on this because this is really, really pissing me off. If your vet is not telling you what you are doing to your animals then he is either a horrible vet or he knows that you are an owner who won’t listen to what he is saying and he’s given up on you taking proper care of your animals.

    Fuck you Cole until you learn to actually love this cat in a true way.

    @RoonieRoo: How about something like this instead:

    Cole, you are a good person, and what you are doing to help your friend is truly wonderful. Here’s the best link I could find about the harm we can do to our pets by allowing them to be overweight. (and then supply the link)

    Sometimes less is more, and timing is everything. Oh, and not being a total dick helps, too.
