Sundays Without Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 162

Published in: Just For Fun

Dear Diary,


Been a nice, relaxing weekend so far. No runways, raging parties or ridiculous drama. I actually needed some peace and quiet, so I even decided to give my assistant/driver the weekend off.

I know! I’m too kind, but she’ll be very busy next week.

I needed this — this alone time with my kitty thoughts, ya know? Oddly, even though I lack opposable thumbs and am no longer legally allowed to drive, I’ve still gotten quite a few things done…

On Friday night I had a couple of friends over for drinks and appetizers. I served warm turkey Temptations and made this new catnip martini that I saw featured in a recent episode of the Nate Berkus show. Per usual, the Russian Blue from next door got WASTED.

Good times…

And then yesterday I had my masseuse come over and work out the kinks in my back. It wasn’t budgeted…but whatev. It’s a business expense, and I need to be in tip-top condition for napping.

Any other day, I would have had my assistant give me a deep-tissue shiatsu kitty massage, but this new gal, who also moonlights as a pet sitter, did alright. Not my favorite (she had weak fingers), but it got the job done.

Today I just woke up early at around noon, caught up on my subscription to Cat Fancy, and organized my accessories drawer (can’t believe how many ribbons and ties I have now).

That reminds me — my assistant dropped the ball and left for her weekend jaunt without getting my ascot, monocle and top hat, which means I’m still without a decent Halloween costume (planning this whole steam punk theme…).

“Siri, remind me to take care of that tomorrow.”

So, yeah. Not a bad weekend at all. I do kindasorta miss my assistant, though, but don’t tell her that. She can be a little annoying, sure, but she’s reliable and has strong fingers.

The older I get, the more I realize how hard it really is to find good help.

Catch you later,

    Haha Tabs, you make me laugh 😀 I’m happy you had such a fun, relaxing weekend!

    My cat Sunny is a Russian Blue and he’s super handsome and charismatic just like you. We live in Boston so a cat hangout is out of the question – maybe you can skype him? RussianBlueForYewww is his skype name (Ok I clearly took this too seriously bahaha :))

    Hope you’re having a great day Karen!

    Oh Tabs, you lead such a rough life 😉
    Glad to see that you are being civil to that Russain Blue- I know he’s always trying to get on your nerves.

  13. Linda says:
