Dirty little secrets...

...Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little cat-paws in everybodys pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We have a sofa, a chaise lounge, two beds, countless assorted pillows and a very soft, plush shag rug on the living room floor. Da boys eschew all those cushy things and instead, choose to nap on a pile of da Zigster's dirty, stinky steel mill work clothes.

Ah well. No accounting for taste, eh?

I guess that's why I find cats so damn entertaining. Ya have a nice dog and he pretty much has a routine. He does pretty much the same thing every day. But with cats...all bets are off. Ya never know what they'll do next.

F'rinstance...Rudy (yea, we finally named the kitten) has an unusual fascination with water. Unusual for a cat, I mean. The other day, he jumped in the shower with me. And wasn't at all flustered by gettin wet. Made himself comfortable in fact, and sat down at the end of the tub and watched me for a few minutes.

Now, for somethin a little different. Dictionary a la Pammy. Our words for the day are:

Schadenfreude - –noun; satisfaction or pleasure felt at watching some ignoramus with too little brain and too much boat get firmly stuck in the mud when he chooses to ignore the navagational markers.

Duh. That's like...what they're there for, dude.

Conundrum - noun; anything that tryin to decide upon New Orleans or Savannah for an upcoming vacation. We've been to 'Nawlins and love it, love it, love it. We've never been to Savannah, but think we'll love it.


Addiction - noun; the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, such as Turner Classic Movies.

Ok, so we've had Mediacom cable now for well over a year. And I've just discovered that we get TCM. I've become every bit addicted to it as a crack-ho is to...well...crack.

I'm a TCM-ho.

I know I've told y'all before that part of my job takes me to some pretty...ah...rough parts of town. Case in point:

(From Friday's PJStar)

Police are looking for information regarding a shooting that injured a man in South Peoria this afternoon.

Dispatchers received reports of gunshots about 1:40 p.m. in the 2300 block of Starr Street, where police located a victim with nonlife-threatening injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital, according to police.

Officers were still looking for the shooter, and no other information regarding the victim or the circumstances that led to the shooting were being released this afternoon.

I was in the 2300 block of Starr on Friday at about I missed it.
