red_eft: Dana Scully smiling (Scully smiles)
Half the keys on my laptop have suddenly stopped working. I was going to write an amusing sentence with missing letters, but "an amusing sentence" became "a asg stc" so I decided not to. Why would this happen with no apparent cause? I didn't spill anything on it or anything. *mystified*

I have re-started watching X-Files. There are... a lot of episodes that boil down to "lol, impregnating women against their will is hilarious! (unless it is Scully)" aren't there? The one with the tails, and then Post-modern Prometheus. I mean, I get that spoiler )

Randomly, does anyone know of a non-judgy cat forum-type site that is friendly towards raw feeding? I kind of want to get back into that with my cats, but OMG the rawcat mailing list is SO HORRIBLE. It's just so judgmental and YOU ARE KILLING YOUR CATS if you feed them canned or kibble EVAR. Because raw is so easy and inexpensive! And if you don't think so you are lazy and stupid! Just looking at the digest titles make me anxious. There are few groups more virulently judgmental than pet owners and parents, I think.
Plus, I hate mailing lists in general. When fandom moved from MLs to forums and the LJ I was so happy, you have no idea.

In other news, I have started on my first picture for the White Lotus exchange! I am excited.

My paid account is expiring in a few days, and so before I lose the ability to make polls, I would like to present to you a scenario!

Let us say that you are cooking some sort of thing which involves butter 1. Let us further say that you are cooking only for yourself- no one is going to eat this food but you. You turn your back on the butter for one damn minute, and when you turn around, your cat2 has begun to lick it!

This poll is anonymous.
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 20

What do you do?

Eh, it's just cat spit. Just use the butter.
8 (40.0%)

I wouldn't use the butter raw (like on toast) but if it was going to be cooked, I'd just use it.
5 (25.0%)

Scrape off the bit that the cat licked, and then use the butter.
14 (70.0%)

Trash the whole stick- it could have licked the whole thing while you weren't looking! YOU JUST DON'T KNOW.
0 (0.0%)

Just give up, order out, and let the cat eat the rest of the butter. (not recommended!)
0 (0.0%)

I have some other terribly creative reaction that I may expand upon in comments.

1. If you do not eat butter, feel free to imagine the butter-like item of your choice.
2. If you do not have a cat, you can imagine one, or replace it with the animal of your choice. Although I am given to understand that a dog licking your butter would make the rest of the poll moot, as there would probably not be much left.

Cat just ate half my pepper seedlings.

Cat. Ate. half my pepper seedlings. I had them down from the shelf for *one minute* while I went out to get something, and when I came back, I had six where once there were twelve. Six pairs of nice, green, healthy seed leaves... six naked stalks, and one very guilty-looking cat.

I know this is my fault. He was sniffing them, and I put him on the floor, and I should have put them back up, and after moving all my tomatoes into larger pots I wouldn't have room for all of them anyway. But. But. They took so damn long to germinate and they were looking so *healthy* and waaaaahhh, my peppers. *sniffle*

Bastard cat I pay over five thousand dollars for surgery for you, and this is how you repay me? sajgskg. They better not make him sick.
