MAC GIVEAWAY

Win a $50 MAC eGIFT CARD from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Birthday beignets, po’ boys and art gallery cats! — ’twas an interesting (and fun) week.

I hope yours went well, too. Things here in Novato, California are still chugging along. It’s a little overcast this morning, but I’m pretty sure the misty morning fog will burn off by the afternoon. Then it’ll be hot, hot, hot.

Your nephew, King Tabby, is sitting right behind me on the couch. He says “mrow!” by the way. :)

I get the strong feeling that he’s hoping we’re going to go outside soon for a walk, because while I was out stuffing my gullet with beignets, he was stuck here with his petsitter in the house. Now I’m sure he’s raring to go (you know how seriously he takes securing the perimeter).

In other news, what’s the plan for this weekend? Is it sunny there?

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine, and happy Caturday! :) It’s a sunny day in Novato, haaay!

Today’s headlines…

A new family of finches has moved into the hanging plant on my deck, and the bird action has been intense. The mommy and daddy birds get very chirpy and protective whenever Tabs or I go out there. It’s exciting stuff. I can control myself, of course, by the tabby overlord keeps wanting to get in on the action, so I have to keep a close eye on him when we’re outside.

Also, New Orleans! We’re heading out there for my birthday next week, and I’m damned excited. I’ve never been there before, but I’ve always wanted to go. I plan to take a bazillion pictures while scouring the French Quarter for interesting things to share. I’ll be checking in from time to time.

Have a great weekend, whatever you’re up to. Your tabby nephew says “mrow.”

Oh! — the new MAC website. Brace yourself. It’s coming soon. I have it on good authority that we’ll be seeing the brand new MAC website very, very soon (here’s a hint: on what day of the week do we usually do that poll?). :)

Good morning, glory. Happy caturday! Meows all around.

So, I watched a surprisingly entertaining movie on iTunes last night called Love, Rosie, and I thought you should know about it…just in case you’re ever in the mood for something light and fluffy that also happens to star the guy who played Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

You know, just in case you need something that meets all three of those important criteria — light, fluffy and starring Finnick Odair. :)

It wasn’t bad! I mean, OK, it only gets a 26% on rottentomatoes, but I swear, it’s better than that.

In other news, I’m driving into the city this morning to have breakfast with my brother, and my most difficult decision at the moment is whether I should order the buckwheat pancakes, or the huevos rancheros.

Hmm… I might end up getting both, ’cause that’s how I roll.

Have a great weekend, whatever you’re up to, and may it be filled with cats.

    • Did you do any shopping this week? What did you get?
    • Have you ever gotten into a big argument with someone at work?
    • What’s the chismis (pronounced chees-mees), which is Tagalog for “gossip”?

Rise and shine, morning glory, and happy caturday. :) I hope you slept well.

Gosh, can you believe that it’s already Memorial Day weekend? I totally forgot that this Monday was a holiday. I only realized it last night! No plans for me yet…but we’ll have to think of something. Maybe a picnic at the beach or a hike in the Marin Headlands. I just wish that Tabs could come with us…

Do you ever do that — wish that your cat could do outdoorsy things with you?

No? Is that crazy?

Haha! Yeah, it sounds a little crazy.

Speaking of cats, your royal highness is in quite a mood. He hasn’t gone for his walk yet today because it’s damp out there and cloudy, so he’s mewling and pacing up and down the hallway.

I wonder what he’s saying in cat-speak. It sounds dramatic like, “THIS IS THE WORST DAY IN THE HISTORY OF DAYS EVER!” But it’s probably, “GRAVY, GRAVY, BIRD, GRAVY, BIRD, LIZARD, CRINKLY TOY!”

LOL!

Good luck in the giveaway. I thought we’d make this one for Sephora again.

And have a great Memorial Day weekend, whatever you’re up to. :)

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! Are you feeling Furiosa?

OK, so Mad Max: Fury Road was a riotously good action movie, and Charlize Theron’s Furiosa kicks so much butt, but now that I sit and think about the movie…a lot of it is blurring together. It’s such a visual spectacle of high-octane nonstop action, and everything’s so dusty and dirty and hot, but it’s almost more like listening to heavy metal music while looking at a beautiful painting of the desert than watching a regular movie….if that makes any sense.

In other news, I’m still making progress on Project Get My Sh*t Together, but I haven’t fully gotten it together yet. I did pick up three of these gray ombre milk crates from Target to use in the pink storage shelves in my office, but I haven’t filled them yet. So maybe I’ll work on that this weekend.

Other than that, I don’t know what’s on my agenda yet. Maybe a bicycle ride this afternoon in the Novato hills with El Hub if it warms up a little. It’s not exactly cold, but it has been very windy here. It gets Tabs fired up, I guess because he sees everything moving.

You know how cats are.

How was your week? What was the most surprising or interesting thing that happened?
