Dear Diary – The Invasion of the Little Thing has begun

Dear Diary, Somehow I just knew this was going to happen. Even though I specifically requested from Jesus, Santa Cat and Momma that nobody teach the Little Thing how to move around; somebody apparently went against my orders. Yes that’s right, Diary.  The Little Thing has figured out how to get around the house.  At first it was amusing.  I’d stand on…

Diary of a Cranky Cat – I got in trouble on Twitter

Dear Diary, Isn’t it nice when Momma let’s me on the computer?  Lately she’s been hogging it to work on her (cough, cough) novel.  I don’t know why.  Nobody’s gonna read it.  You know why that is, Diary?  Because I’m not the star of it. Sigh. Anyway, Momma’s pipe dreams aren’t the point. So I’ll just get right to it. …

Things You’re Not Supposed to Talk About

Who would have thought there are rules to blogging?  Yes, in fact there are.  One of the many don’ts of blogging is that you are never supposed to talk about why you haven’t been blogging.  Apparently it’s in poor taste.  Don’t ask me why.  I don’t make the rules.  But I do follow the rules…usually. So…I won’t talk about why…

Diary of a Cranky Cat – I Learned a New Language

Dear Diary, Today I learned a new language.  I feel it’s tragic and unfortunate that I had to learn this new language but…alas….my life is tragic and unfortunate. This morning, after I was unable to wake Momma, I came down stairs.  I threw myself on the floor and moaned, “Woe as me!  Woe as me!” Little Missy turned herself around…

Little Missy and I Have a Chat.

I had fallen asleep on the couch trying to stay awake for the Little Thing’s late night feeding.  When I woke up I felt something heavy lying over both of my legs.  After my eyes focused I found that Little Missy was sound asleep on top of me. “Little Missy,” I said softly.  “Baby girl…Momma needs to get up.” Little…

My Ghostly Encounter at the Sorrel Weed House

Courtyard of the Sorrel Weed House This experience definitely tops all the times I played Bloody Mary in the bathroom or even the time I thought someone whispered “Choya” in my ear while I was staying at the very haunted St. James Hotel in New Mexico.  I honestly think I was just imagining it.  Of all the crazy things a…
