Moderately Annoyed Cat for June 7, 2010
Yes, it's time once again for the Moderately Annoyed Cat to weigh in on the issues of the day. Leave comments, and they will be read to the Moderately Annoyed Cat at the appropriate time, which is between naps and meals.
Meow meow meow meow Gulf meow meow!
Meeeoowww meeeooow Israel!
Meoow Meooow Meoooow, Elton John!
Purr purr purrrr meow, DW meow LOL!!!
Matilda will contact you to discuss this further when she's finished eating supper nom-noms.
By the way, on the subject of pictures, here's the latest LOL I've created at cheezburger.com:
The title is "Deep Horizon II"
I can't figure whether that reminds me of:
"Blue on Blue"
"Love is Blue"
"When the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day" (A real oldie for PoLT!)
"Am I Blue" (One that PoLT sang as he rode to the drive-in on his dinosaur!)
"Blue Skies" (One that even DW may remember)
But it could be "Blow the Man Down" or "Blowin' in the Wind."
Completely and totally off topic here.... (I'm sure no one is surprised)... do I pass the IQ test for noticing the link to "Dark Wraith's Boostore" in the sidebar? Or is it a place to get books written by ghostwriters?
Wild Clover ducks and runs before being pelted with stale donuts from under the couch....
There are no stale doughnuts under the couch, Wild Clover. If I hadn't eaten them, the cats would have.
Ditto for the stale double-extra cheese pizza.
Too much cheese gives the cats the wind something fierce. It's difficult to explain if I have guests.
Fortunately, I don't have guests that often.
I'd have to share my doughnuts and pizza with them.
I saw that, too. BUT... I was too scared to go there!
Maybe worse than getting scared would be getting booed!
And twice would be a real boo-boo!
(I understand it's in one of those "special" rooms he has under the diner! Don't know what's in there but a guy named Jimmy went there years ago and hasn't been seen since!)
Yes, I need to take that whole ad down anyway.
Amazon and most those other retailers have kicked me off their affiliate programs (especially all those that have been absorbed by the oligopolist Google), and I want to strip the site of almost all ads as an alternate model to the ocean of craven Webmasters who stuff idiotic, flashing, twitching, blinking advertisements in visitors' faces.
I'll probably leave a few ads up, but nothing that would be intrusive or lead me to a ridiculous misspelling.
Maybe I'll sell posters of the Dark Wraith Publishing logo. Yes, that would bring in the revenue.
Okay, probably not.
I'm still thinking of doing an all-male "Men of The Dark Wraith Forums" calendar for 2011. Father Tyme would be Mr. January, of course, but I'll have to get photos of him and trog and Peter of Loin Lone Tree and Weaseldog and Phydeaux Speaks and the other fellows.
Now that will sell like hotcakes.
Well, that one part of the right sidebar is all cleaned up, now.
The next task is to deal with that long list of links to blogs. I know that more than a few of those sites are no longer active or don't even exist anymore. To some extent, that pruning exercise is going to be a painful process because I'll have to see who has given up, passed away, or otherwise found better things to do.
It's interesting that the hierarchy of the Blogosphere has become pretty much completely rigid, now: the first-tier, heavy hitters don't add any new sites and, in fact, long ago culled all of the smaller blogs out of their listings, and new bloggers are not trying to establish link exchanges with older, more established Weblogs.
I suppose I'll roll up my sleeves and deal with that part of the sidebar tonight or tomorrow. The chore will give me something to work on while I'm composing my thoughts for the next few major articles, at least one of which will probably convince some of my critics that I've gone 'round the bend.
I like doing that. It gives the uber-sophisticated folks good reason to ignore me in the future.
Yo, Tony Hayward, don't make me put your photo on the botton of my litter box, you hairball of a human being!
While I'm inhaling the vision of Miss Bluebell's breasticles, you guys can feast your eyes on Christ-forgiven Newt Gringrich and apostles' radical new tactics to create moar jobs and lower the deficit as well! BEHOLD!!
A few weeks ago, Dan made the exciting announcement that Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) have introduced legislation based on the tax cuts in our Jobs First plan. They call it the Economic Freedom Act and it includes:
Reducing the payroll tax by half for 2010 to provide immediate liquidity for companies and employees;
Eliminating the capital gains tax to encourage investment in new companies;
Reducing the corporate tax rate to 12.5%, to make us competitive globally;
Permanently eliminating the death tax so small businesses and family farms can continue creating jobs for future generations;
Providing immediate business expensing so American workers have the best equipment and are the most productive.
DW, I don't understand how you came to the color-coding conclusion that you did. I mean, wouldn't blue signify cold? How else would she be able to show people she were cold without using words, something eye-catching to tip you off to her plight? Blue hair, that's how.
Now we need to come up with something that would make it obvious to a blind person as well. Hm...
