Happy Super Fat Tuesday!

lowflyingsquab summarizes it in a picture here.

I didn't get a sticker when I voted (so could not put in on MY pancakes), but I did get some bebe time and had an interesting conversation with Momma Mags.

The qats were both taken to the V-E-T to have their tires rotated. Lucy did much better than I expected - she didn't scratch us all to hell or cry. (She did poop on the exam table, but that was easily sorted.) I haven't seen her much after she wolfed down the food I gave her afterwards, but that's pretty much to be expected. She'll get over it. Maggie was also a Very Good Kitty - no yowling and she started headbutting the tech in the front through her cage as we were sorting out the bill. (Lucy, on the other hand, was Miss Big Eyes.) They are both in excellent health and my guesstimates on their weights were pretty good.

In other news, I decided to pitch my snark communities - Hell on the Ship (it's not mostly a snark community, but work with me here), stupid_free, sf_drama, and alt.usenet.kooks on the usernetz for Lent.

I can't claim lofty spiritual motives - they've been distracting me from the job hunt - but this was a pretty good time to Do Something to Take Care of Business. So if you know me in one or more of these places and don't see me there much, you'll know why.
