My cats always make me smile!

Cats are evil.

Cats aren't evil. Just misunderstood.

Evil. They're all like and stuff.

I have to agree! I didn't realize that was the cat emoticon. It's brilliant!

Now please excuse me while I go sneeze 50 times...

Cat emoticon... Brilliant, indeed, mikey!

UPS delivered a bottle of Cuban rum this afternoon - just in time for New Year's Eve!!!!

Oh, and cats do look like . I have one that has the same exact face. Her name is Moe. We call her Miss Evil. Yes, they can be cute and cuddly but they have their "evil" side. Trust me - those who have one or two - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! (Novices!) We still love Moe... Most of the time... She also learned to give hugs - it's only a ploy to get more attention.

News item -

American actor and playwright Sam Shepard has been arrested for allegedly drinking and driving in Illinois.
He was also accused of speeding, with police saying he was driving at 46mph (74km/h) in a 30mph (48km/h) area.
The 65-year-old's blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit when he was stopped in the town of Normal, Lt Mark Kotte of the local police force added.

Question

How far away are Beerman and Isadora from Normal?

Saw that report yesterday. Thankfully, Isa Manor is about 160 miles north and slightly west of Normal. Interestingly, the story said he'd been hanging out in a bar in Bloomington and was heading home to Kentucky. I think he got lost trying to find the interstate as Bloomington is just a hop, skip and jump north (not south) of Normal. Bloomington/Normal are also home to Illinois State University so maybe he was looking for a holiday frat house party... Maybe he was really heading for Isa Manor...

Found this on Australia's ABC news site -

Masturbating driver fined for 'bizarre' pleasure cruise

A Darwin man has been fined $2,000 for filming himself masturbating while speeding along the Stuart Highway.
The man is already in jail until August after pleading guilty to carrying cannabis in the car boot and two plants on the back seat.

Brenton Alan Erhardt, 39, pleaded guilty in the Darwin Magistrates Court to dangerous driving.
He was pulled over by police on the Stuart Highway in July speeding at 147 kilometres per hour, south of Daly Waters.

He admitted to officers he filmed himself masturbating while driving from Adelaide to Darwin. well it is one helluva long drive - 4000km or 2,485 miles
He also pleaded guilty to driving unlicensed, carrying two cannabis smoking pipes, administering the drug and carrying a loaded rifle.

Magistrate Sue Oliver says the driving was bizarre to say the least and conduct she expects of someone much younger.

147 kph = 91 mph

Didn't do anything that I wouldn't normally do... Helped several people with different things while I was out shopping (getting things off the top shelf, putting a heavy bag of dog food in a woman's cart, making jokes with the check-out lady, etc) but the response I got from them all made me smile. It's amazing what simple little "random acts of kindness" can do for one's day. I also know the WalMart greeter from his previous job at the local grocery but he always remembers me and greeted me with "Hello Sunshine" this morning. It made me giggle.
