Fixing stuff, myself included…
The KityKat De-Konstruction Kompany
Yes, that’s the name of Elliott’s new business. He’s getting all his experience at home. He has no other choice, because his sentence, after the guilty verdict came in was 6 months home detention. The tiny monitor around his paw is a constant nuisance; however, he still manages to get the job done. Anything you want on the floor in peices, he’s your man. Call 1-800 ELLIOTT for help.
What’s going on in the real world?
Abbott and I has dinner with my friend Su yesterday, and watched the Jackie Chan movie “Tuxedo.” Very funny.
Kitty Cat Craziness
Last night Elliott spent the entire evening glued to my lap. Purring, grooming and sleeping were the main events. Whereas the night before he was trying out for the staring role in Kitty Cat From Hell
Kitty Cat From Hell?
While I tried in vain to carry on a conversation with Abbott, Elliott proceeded to climb the kitchen shelves and sweep breakables off onto the floor with his paw. Today is a new day, and as I write this I hear him efficiently stripping the wallpaper in the second floor hall with his lovely little claws. I sincerely hope this does not foreshadow further destruction and mayhem.
Court Proceeding Excerpt
“In my closing argument for the defense ladies and gentlemen, I must remind you that Elliott was an orphan, his origins are unknown, and in fact if not fiction I herewith stand on my own convictions (no pun intended).”
“The defendant ladies and gentlemen is quite beautiful, but you should not be swayed by his outer continence. What counts here, need I remind you, are his unruly ways. You’ve heard the testimony; the defendant is well aware of his beauty, and has been warned repeatedly that one day he’ll no longer be able to get along on his good looks.”
“Objection, your honor, the defendant is not on trial for his good looks; he’s been accused of destroying the shot glass with the little pig on it, with maliciousness and forethought. The defense maintains that while he destroyed the shot glass it was not with malicious intent, but rather playful intent.”
“Order, order, order in the court room. Counsels please approach the bench. Now, what’s at steak here… Mr Katz please control your client, or he will be removed from the court room!”
“Elliott sit down, it’s not that kind of steak. I’m sorry your honor, my client was confused by your choice of words”.
“Now, as I was saying what’s at issue is not whether the kitty cat is beautiful, or if he broke the shot glass with the little pig on it, but rather was his action premeditated and malicious? Therefore, I sustain your objection Mr Katz. The jury will disregard the prosecutors last remarks”
“But your honor.”
“Don’t but your honor me, or you’ll find your butt in jail Miss Piggy.”
“Ah, yes sorry your honor.” Miss Piggy gazed demurely at the floor.
Check out the weird, and crazy mind reader; can you figure out how it’s done?
1.) Is the justice system in the US really fair? Why, or why not?
I’m reminded of an article I read recently in the The New York Times Sunday magazine section on the 4th District Circuit Court. The article was about 3 weeks ago, so it’s no longer available free online. The court was “painted” as ultra conservative. But that doesn’t necessarily make it unfair? If nine times out of ten this court rules (overruling lower court decisions including monetary awards by jury) on the side of business, or the state, then the process is at the very least skewed. While the country focuses on war, Bush will push through his nominations for even more conservative judges to replace those retiring from the 4th Circuit Court bench. But, you’re not talking about the Supreme Court. That’s true; however, most cases from the 4th circuit appealed to the Supreme Court are not accepted, and the 4th Circuit Court ruling stands.
2.) In a crisis are you a leader, or a follower? Why do you take that role?
I think it depends on the particular crisis. If I have knowledge that will facilitate/render a quick solution I will take charge. If I’m with someone I trust I might follow their lead rather then assuming the leadership role. Why? Hell, I don’t know, after all my degree is in psychology.
3.) Is there some reason for your madness? What is it?
Today “in my neck of the woods” it’s the glorious spring weather. Tomorrow it will probably be due to my sunburn.

Here’s what I’m thinking: If anybody has a question that they’d really like people to respond to for the Tuesday Too tomorrow, leave it in today’s comment, and I’ll include it in the Too. FYI: if you don’t know, or have forgotten, I usually post the Too around 5 AM eastern standard time on Tuesday morning.
What else are you thinking?
On Thursday I’m going to be upgrading my laptop to a 20 gig hard drive; I’m excited. 20 gigs on a laptop! However, there always seems to be some glitch in getting data from here to there, so a little bit of breath holding may be required. Saw The Mask yesterday; god I love computer graphics, such amazing stuff. Speaking of movies, they’re filming Ladder 49 in my neighborhood this spring. Maybe I’ll get a glance at John Travolta in his buffed up state. I fell in love with him in Saturday Night Fever.
Saturday Night Fever, how old are you anyway?
None of your business; however if you’re really interested I’ve probably said it somewhere already. Maybe I better put that search engine back on my site. I saw Saturday Night Fever when it first came out. It was part of perhaps the best Christmas I ever had. My lover and I went “up the road” with friends to the Zoo in Salisbury MD, then to the movie, and topped it off with dinner at a Chinese restuarant. I love the fact that Chinese holidays are different then the holidays I celebrate. My absolute favorite food is an Ethiopian dish called Kitfo; I think I told you that somewhere else too. I really must put that search engine back.

Getting archives back
I swear; the next time I post it will not be this boring crap on getting things right, or not.
