I Need Instruction

This is your cat.

This is your cat on drugs.

Hey, I got a lot of kudos on my last post which was a tag assignment from Lone Grey Squirrel. I do seem to thrive on having an assignment (that's why I did so well in school). I would love a subject suggestion for a future post. I will post about anything that does not involve sex, religion or politics.
Thanks to my daughter, I was able to do Meals on Wheels today. And by "do" I mean, it got done. I went in with her to pack the food, but other than that, I sat in the passenger seat of my truck and my daughter did everything. My one buddy lady hobbled out to talk to me. She is so sweet. I've had her the whole seven years. My route has changed so much I don't really know anyone else.
My Mom met us for lunch. My step-dad is having a creepy procedure done tomorrow to treat his atrial fibrillation. They will stop his heart and then jump start it with some sort of electric shock. They are also going to do a few other smaller procedures. Mom is really freaking out. I hope everything goes okay.
I have to go to the dentist tomorrow and as everyone knows I'd rather do jury duty than go to the dentist. I hope the driving doesn't kill my knee. If I'm up for it, I'm going to go to the grocery store, which is only about two rungs up the ladder from jury duty.
Don't forget, I need an assignment. Ask a question or just pick a topic. I will try to do all of them but will probably start with the easiest one. Because that will be easier.
Update: My Mom said everything went well although it took 3 or 4 tries to get the heart rate corrected. They were released and off to lunch just after the procedure. And although I made it to the dentist, I DID NOT go to the grocery store. I will try again on Friday (today). My knee still hurts.

Your first love. How's that for a topic? I'll write about mine sometime.

Whoa! Barney has grown!

Ummm, okay, here's a question, do you think it was a religious experience when Bill Clinton got with Monica Lewinsky?? HA!!! I'm just kidding! Nothing like touching on all of your non-blog topics. :P

I'll keep your stepdad in my thoughts, I hope all goes well with him tomorrow.

I'm glad you were able to do your route, at least it's something. And, I hope your dentist appointment goes well.


P.S. I loved your previous post, too, I just never got around to telling you so until now. :)

What is the most hideous book on your shelf, and why haven't you burned it?

Jocelyn said...

You've been given a thousand dollars and MUST spend it on something completely fun and frivolous--no do-gooding or world-saving allowed. You must spend it on YOU, for damn fun.

What do you use it for? Why?

Geewits, that is one cute cat! I'm so glad he adopted you :-)

Keep us posted on how your step-dad does tomorrow. I would be freaking out too.

This might sound kinda boring, but I would like to hear about some of the "neat" places around where you live. You did a post about an art/gallery museum not long ago, and I found it really interesting. There must be some cool places around there that other folks in the world would like to know about. Post about that, and how they are part of your life. Okay, here's an assignment for you. Tell us about all the places where you like to drink beer - and why. And your favorite bartenders there. Americans have such neat bars. Canadian bars aren't as interesting.

~~I did that here:

~~When I took Barney to the doc last week and they asked me his age, I said, "Well you guys picked May 5th for his birthday." And the girl said, "Whoa, well he's really big for a cat that age!"

~~That will take a lot of thought. We actually have a library so there are books in there that I may not have even noticed. I'll look around in there tomorrow.

~~Ooh that will be fun!

~~Thanks, those are good ones!
