And Now, Because it is Friday…

And we are home again…

sky is falling

I kind of feel like this.  I feel like a bomb went off this month in our peaceful little nest.

And it wasn’t this little guy…unfortunately.

Because him I could get rid of!

Instead, it looks like a battle of Socrates vs. The Sophists looms in my near future.  And I thought I’d never have to deal with him, or Plato again after Freshman English!

Here’s hoping I haven’t totally forgotten how to get my brain working…

Oh, right.

Caturday!!!

Ok, so really it’s Sunday but you have to cut me some slack because I’ve had this mind numbing cold this week and all I did yesterday was sit on the couch and drink tea…

We have this problem occasionally.  But we live in Texas.  😛

 

Lone Star Rally…with Caturday!

This weekend is the Lone Star Bike Rally.  Conveniently, it is a short 30 minute ride from my house to the nasty, dirty  luvley island of Galveston, where this weekend, an average of 500,000 motorcycles and their owners will be gawking at each other (and their bikes).

This year will be the third year I’ve gone.  On my own bike.

But since it’s Caturday, I thought I’d try to combine themes!

Kitties go retro!

And zoom zoom sportbike!  Kitchen Kat and I will begin working on this tomorrow.

Even those tough Harley types love kitteh head ornaments!  (Hehe..head, not hood ;-P )

Confused kitteh says…You don’t SMELL like a kat…

Tomorrow, I’ll try to share some interesting bikes from the rally.  Because people actually ride bikes that look like this!

Faster than a cheetah?  I’d say it’s likely 🙂

Y’all have a great Caturday!  Get out there and RIDE!!!

Password Hell

I don’t know about the rest of you out there in digital land, but I have a complaint.  Actually, I have many, but I’m pretty sure you’re not coming here to hear me bitch, so I try to save those moments for my beloved family.

I realize that passwords are a necessity in these days of internet ninjas lurking in cyber space.

But I have SO many passwords, some on sites that I really don’t feel would in any way compromise my security.  For example, if you’d like to log in to Woman’s Day magazine and read recipes, you need a user name and password.

I don’t really even understand WHY they need to know who I am.  I’m not buying anything.  I’m just browsing their free website.

There are also some things I just can’t see why anyone would even be interested in obtaining the information.  Like the website that will calculate my BMI and tell me how grossly overweight I am, without a name…but I need a user name and password.  WHY????  And why would anyone else EVER want to know my BMI?  I mean, really.

Are hackers targeting the overweight?  Are they going to somehow link my username, which isn’t in any way associated with my email and spam me with diet ads?  Or will they assume that, if I’m overweight, I must shop online, and hope to get a credit card number?  If so, they will be sadly disappointed when they try to buy anything and are declined.

I’m becoming forever grateful for the “Forgot Password?” option, since I’m using it regularly these days.  I realize that a different password for every online account is a great security measure, but if I can’t remember it, is it really secure from anyone but me?

***Now comes the PG…possibly R rated part of this post.  So…if any of you are under 18, cover your eyes, as my intent is for this to be a family-friendly food and kitteh blog.  But sometimes….it’s just not possible to pull all the punches.

I have a solution…finally.  Username isn’t a problem, since I can generally remember my tags 🙂  Passwords will now be phrases I tend to use when annoyed.  Because…I’m annoyed.  Perhaps that’s the reason they’re easier to remember that way.  Don’t know, don’t care.

Maybe the next time I want to make a comment on Aggie’s blog, I’ll actually be able to remember my new obscene password!

Sithy Sunday

Happy Sithy Sunday, and BTHO Florida Fighting Farmers!

Quickly Caturday

It’s about that time.  School, I mean, for those of you lucky smart enough to avoid summer term!  We’ve started keeping bees now that we have land, but that’s a story for another long post, hopefully with pics that aren’t too gross.

For today, just laughs, and of course, because it’s Texas and still August, more rain???

Try not to forget to laugh at least once every day.  Laugh lines are better than frown jowls!  😛

Cheerful otter looks like Kitchen Kat

For your cheerful viewing pleasure on a rainy Friday.

 

Because otters make everything better.
