This is great advice. Every time I bump into it, I find that I’m doing all of these things. I need to be more conscious of stopping and relaxing and not doing these things.
Before I saw this comic, I hadn’t thought about how cats give information to the younger generations. Now I understand!
Do you suppose that the older cat here is named Maria? I don’t think I’ve ever run into a cat named Maria. I am sure someone has called a cat Maria at some point?
At my house, so many different things are used as cat beds. My favorite is the random paper bag taken from the bag of leftover shopping bags. The cats fight over it occasionally, but then one realizes that paper beds aren’t so glamorous and she finds another one. The cats will play in cardboard boxes, but they aren’t fans of sleeping in them.
Mini kicks people off of the kitchen chair when it’s her naptime. Inky will hide in the garage and we will find her on the pile of laundry.
Inky’s favorite place to be, though, other than on my lap, is on top of the refrigerator. She sits up there and watches whoever is cooking. She supervises and occasionally tosses out a bit of cat hair to hopefully not end up in food. I guess she considers it the penthouse. Thankfully, she doesn’t have to pay by the day, because then she’d be asking for money from me. Maybe we should have her get a job?
I was surprised by the fact that the Jetsons were accurate. Online school for kids isn’t on here, and I haven’t seen too many flying cars lately, but wow, I am impressed with the writers.
That straw will get you every time. You think that you’re doing great and then just one tiny thing gets you. Be patient with your friends and family. There’s a lot going on and you never know what might be the little thing that pushes someone over the edge. You don’t want to see that straw in the lineup, either.
I have always loved The Far Side Comics. For years, they were featured in the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, so I think I managed to read all of them.
I was thrilled to hear that Gary Larson was drawing new comics. The above linked website shows them. Unfortunately, there are only two new ones on there, so far. The old ones are still there, though, so it’s worth looking into.
The above link shows several comics describing the difference between Western and Chinese societies. I found it very interesting looking at the stereotypes, especially after just taking a class on communicating between cultures.
Here are some abridged Classics. You don’t need to read the full version now, right?
What kind of reader are you? I am definitely a book collector, and I prefer to live in the bookshop/library when it’s open. The other ones I fall into occasionally, but I wouldn’t really classify myself as any of them.
This popped up for me several times. I think I have posted it before, but I can’t seem to find where I posted it. Please excuse the duplicate post if this is one.
I have been most of these types of readers at some point in my life. Currently, I am usually a nocturnal reader. With bookclubs, I tend to be a guilty reader sometimes. I read multiple books at once, so I guess I could be classified as indecisive, too.
Always, though, I am classified as a reader.
