After a Long Hard Day, Your Host Comes Home.....

Ah, home! Lovely day! Started with a very nice ride, moved onto work where I did a great many good things, among which was at long last, finding a bit of stray Bouzouki (Which apparently went to Detroit, took up Blues, and recorded it's first solo cd) all in all, a very satisfying day.

Now Home, to my Bengals! Always lovely to come home to the little dears....

ME: I'm home! Venus! Mim! Come here my little loves!!!!!

MIM: Shoes! Your shoes are back! I love these Shoes! I will roll with them!!!!

VENUS: About Bloody Time! How long do we have to WAIT for supper. WAIT till you see what I did in your bed again! Teach YOU.....

ME: Ok, Darlings, we'll get some food..Mim, I'm over here!

MIM: SHOES! I love these shoes! I will roll with them....

(Cut to bringing King Lear the Huge and Queen Mab their dinner)

ME: Mab! Lear, I'm home! Here's some lovely organic all natural kind of pricey but worth it for you canned food!

LEAR AND MAB: Who the hell are you and what the hell is that???? We want tuna! Uh, go away. We will sit and stare at you until you do.....

(Cut to Magic's room, where he at long last is safe and sound again, in his totally Leopard friendly environment)

ME: Magic, Magic, come out, I have dinner.....


ME: Oh, come on Little Leopard, it' good...

MAGIC: No, you suck. I had an entire basement full of nifty crawl spaces to play in, and you tricked me.

ME: I'm sorry Magic, but look, you pee on stuff. And Venus will kill you. And you all talk like birds when you get together. It's weird.

MAGIC: Very well. I will come and I will eat your tuna. But I do not like you. And I will not play with the Feather Stick.

ME: Fine Magic, but listen up, love me, love my tuna. Hans will build you a Thing. You can climb it.

(Cut to Venus and Mim)

VENUS: Play time for US. I want to play Draw Blood! Watch this, I bet I can land on your arm, and get all four claws AND my teeth into it, and the more you flail , the harder I hold on! I win again!!!!!!!!

MIM: This is WAY cooler than shoes!


VENUS: Fine. I will fetch the Feather Stick. We will all play together. Should you decide you have had enough, we can always play Draw Blood again....

MIM: Venus is so cool, she has the BEST ideas! Can the shoe play too? Look, I have dragged it in here!

VENUS: What are you doing NOW, clawless and feeble two legged one????????

ME: (weakly) My Blog.

VENUS: Are we IN it tonight??????

ME: Yes. What the heck ELSE am I going to talk about?

(Note wasted sarcasm on my part)

VENUS AND MIM: Good! Read it to us AGAIN!

Love and Quiet Evenings at Home (With Five Leopards)

You marvellouslly silly person you. Hee hee! :D And now I shall giggle myself off to sleep. G'night, all.

At 21:50 Blogger DataGoddess said...

You don't have 5 bengals, 5 bengals have you, but you knew that, right?

Feather stick beats draw blood any day!

And all hail your luggage-finding mojo! I think they will not soon forget that Your Word is Law!

At 21:55 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Ahhh, shoes. Tysie lurves shoes, and that grab and draw blood game too.
Owwwww and she has claws that go through layers of clothing.

Back to Bengals.
Pretty Bengals

At 22:03 Blogger Ticia said...

You always make me laugh!

Thank you for making pooping cats entertaining.

I was thinking that the bouzouki made a left at Alburquerque. :-D

At 22:05 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Talk quietly, they are sleeping. Mim with shoes. Venus on me.

I mean, don't stop talking or anything. I will get lonely! Need people! Fiends!

At 22:05 Blogger DataGoddess said...

Or maybe a right at LaJolia...

At 22:06 Blogger ariandalen said...

Well, at least Magic came out enough to get his picture taken. King Lear and Queen Mab will be back to playing with you soon. As for Venus and Mim, well, they just had to remind you who the most important Bengals are.

At 22:13 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Shhhh, don't move or shout. Bengals will stir and Quiche will lose layers of skin and blood

At 22:15 Blogger Lyndyn said...

Clawless and Feeble!! LOL! That made me giggle outloud!

At 22:18 Blogger Na said...

GOL at your screenplay. But that's easy for me; I'm not playing the Draw Blood game. Ooch.

Hmmm. I suspect that Quiet evenings at home and With Five Bengals are, potentially, mutually exclusive concepts.

And I always thought the directions were "Turn left at Greenland"...

At 22:22 Blogger Ticia said...

I feel so lame lately because I have nothing entertaining to share. No awesome links or funny jokes. You fiends rock the awesome links and funny jokes!

I know you don't care about all that. It's all about supporting wherever we're at. I love that.

So, I'll be laughing over here and waving whenever possible.

At 22:27 Blogger Dragonsally said...

I love Gmail and the google ads next to the mail box...just had a lovely time looking at the site of an Aussie Bengal breeder, and sighing at the prices!

At 22:28 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Glad you liked it, I thought it was pretty funny, if I do say so myself!

Tired....May not last too much longer, but please chatter me some comments to read in the night, and wake to with tea in the morning, yes?

At 22:37 Blogger ariandalen said...

I think I'm to bed, and another chapter of "The Outlaw Demon Wails."

It's very windy out, Fiends. Whose dreams will be blown around?


At 22:38 Blogger Na said...

Very funny, it was, Ms. Q.

No chatter up my sleeves, I fear, but will look for someone else's words to share.

At 22:40 Blogger AletaMay said...

Ran out of time today dear fiends! Loved reading here through the day

Love this post. Let's make a video.

Ticky Box and sleep.

At 22:47 Blogger Chantrelle said...

Love the audio in my head when i read the bengal-speak ;-)

Ben talks in meows a lot, it sounds a little like that.

Off to snuggle in front of the tv with having him home! I don't know how military wives deal, i was losing it after 10 days!

At 23:05 Blogger Adri said...

Oh Q, I laughed so hard. You DO have bengals! I know 'Draw Blood' very well, and it made me giggle the most.

I shall write in your style, so that others may know that this is Typical Bengal Behavior.

Rocky: HI! What are you doing? It's not important, let me walk in front of it. Are these things on your desk important? I think they belong on the floor.

Me: You belong on the floor!

Rocky: I most certainly do not! But all of these papers do

Zanzibar: WE GOT A NEW BOX TODAY! Do you think I can fit in it?

Me: Ack, I have to send shoes back in that box

Rocky: Did you know I haven't ever been fed ever? EVER?

Zanzibar: I AM IN A BOX

Rocky: HI, hello, did you know... I've never been fed. O LOOK A BOX

Zanzibar: I'M IN THE BOX

Rocky: I shall stand on the box and sing for my supper

Me: You had an entire chicken today

Rocky: Staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarving

Zanzibar: BOX BOX BOX

And so forth. I guess I'm going to go defrost more chicken.

At 23:12 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Adri, you have me convinced. Tysie has Bengal in her - somehow.
Or maybe Bengals are the ultimate cat?

At 23:16 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Q--snickers :):0:) Though should we be worried now they've got the taste of blood? Oh, you say they had it all along? Well, is a little late to start sleeping with one eye open now :)

Chantrelle--now you know ONE reason why I've been essentially single for the last five years (deployment boyfriends don't count....)

Ticia--if it had taken a left at Albuquerque, I would have snagged it!!

At 23:26 Anonymous Anonymous said...

huh, now I have to give this a try...Angus isn't Bengal, but I'm pretty sure the domestic side of the breed is closely related to him... And I use the term 'domestic' VERRRY very loosely...

Angus: I'm STARVING!! THERE'S NOTHING TO EAT in this kitchen!!

Me: um, what's that filling up your food dish?

Angus: I'm CLEARLY wasting away. There is NOTHING TO EAT. Oooh, look, BIRDS!

Angus: Oooh, look, GARAGE! I'm STARVING!!

Me: um, there's nothing to eat in the garage. Nice venison which you LOVE in your dish.

(five minutes pass)

Angus: I'm OUT in the GARAGE until you FEED ME!!! Oooh, look, boxes.

(five minutes pass)

Angus: Not coming in.

(five minutes pass)

Angus: STARVING!!! Not coming in.

(five minutes pass)

Mom: hey, what are you doing out here in the Garage? Poor sweetie (aaawwww)

Angus: PPPRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrr...oh, look, venison! How yummy....nom nom nom!

A real interaction, just this afternoon. He went into the Garage by jumping off of my shoulders, having climbed up my body when he found nothing satisfactory in his dish.

At 00:10 Anonymous Anonymous said...

LOL No place like home, with Bengals.

Glad to hear the bouzouki has been located. Maybe next time Stephin needs to put a GPS locator on it?

At 00:58 Blogger spacedlaw said...

You sound like they have just appointed you "passable chew toy"...

We got our kitties back after leaving them a week in pension and, when I got home last night, there was a general "Weeee! She's BACK!" moment as they all rushed to greet me at the gate and rub themselves against me. Of course, I wasn't fooled and sure enough, it was soon followed by a "Feedusfeedusfeedus, feedusfeedusfeedus" song and dance.
Caos got a little confused and went into "pet me, no, let me out, feed me, okay then pet me, no I meant, let me out, feed me?" instead before sprawling all over the computer (nice and warm) to show that I did not quite have my priorities right.
Who needs writing when you could have cat petting instead?

At 00:59 Blogger Bridget said...

I woke to the sound of a hairball being horfed up this morning. You know the sound. It is unmistakable. I particularly like when there is a short delay between the "squelch" sound of it coming out and the "splat" sound of it hitting the floor. That means it was horfed from a great height.

I knew all of this before I even opened my eyes this morning.

When I did open my eyes, it was to see Ford staring at me from the foot of the bed going, "Not me, dude. I've been right here. But since you're awake, food would be great, thanks."

A few seconds later, a plaintive "Huh-rooow?" from the front room. Honest to Fod, it sounds like he's saying "Hullo." Tiger's done it since we've had him. Translation today: "There's an icky here, someone come and make it go away?"

Cats are amazing communicators. Some more than others.

At 01:01 Blogger Lexocat said...

Wow. Motown Bouzouki, huh?

I bet it tries to renegotiate its contract now.

As for the Bengals? The exchange with Magic was particularly easy to play out in my head. I can truly hear the little leopard's voice. Well done!

At 01:20 Anonymous Anonymous said...

*chuckle* Wonderful feline dialog! :)


At 03:02 Blogger Marjorie said...

HeeHee. made me laught out loud. And 'Draw Blood'. I kbow that game well.

I will be back.

At 03:51 Blogger Marjorie said...

Oh yes. In our household it tends to go like this.

TYBALT: Where have you been? I have been starving and abandoned for weeks. I thought you were never coming back. Ever.

ME: I was at work. You know, the same as every day. So I can afford to feed you and keep the central heating on. Here, have some fresh food.

TYBALT: I am starving. Why are you taunting me?

ME: [Sits down]

TYBALT: I love you. Stroke me. Purrpurrpurrpurr

TYBALT: Stroke my belly.

ME: I obey, oh Master

TYBALT: I will suddenly sink all me teeth and claws into you. This is fun!

ME: Ow.

TYBALT: Why have you jumped and moved away from me? This startles me and makes me unhappy. You are cruel and heartless.

ME: ??????

TYBALT: I am going to turn my back and wash in a pointed manner, until you realize the error of your ways. Feed me.

At 04:04 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I sooo love that cat dialogue. It's so funny :) I also hope you didn't have to donate too much blood!!

My cat Macy has just looked at me reproachfully for the last 10 years. Sometimes, she looks at my daughters, then looks at me and hisses!!

Some days I can really understand where she's at :)

At 04:15 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I cannot at this moment recall the author or name of the book.... (sigh)....but at one point

cat looks at our protagonist, who has entered a kitchen

"Make a lap." Later, he is instructed to "Feed the cat"

Protagonist is startled, but makes a lap. And obeys other various instructions.

No-one else in the room hears the cat. Or will admit it.

THere is more, just wanted to note that it has some of the best cat to human dialogue EVAH! Doesn't waste time with human to cat dialogue, as I do.

We know they aren't really listening to us, anyway. :)

At 04:32 Blogger louisa said...

Oh Quiche this made my morning!!! Wonderful post, I'll be giggling away to myself here as I unpack the just-arrived order and resist the temptation to catch up with comments. Work's had me spun about this week but hope to be back here soon.

At 06:29 Blogger Phiala said...

Breakfast in bed with the laptop. And virtual bengals!

Tho breakfast in bed is a bit less special if you have to get up and make it yourself, then carry it back to bed.

Even worse, I can stay for about 2 more minutes before I am officially Running Late.

At 06:50 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Good thing they are only virtual bengals: Eating in bed with the cats usually end up as the cats ganging up on me to get at my food and crumbs everywhere.

At 07:04 Blogger LauraJ said...

Lysandwr, I read that too. Protagonist had just lost dearest furry friend; I loved it Cat was present but not paticularly comforting.

Right now (since Friday) I have New to Me black catling living in cupboard under the stairs. Considered naming him Harry Potter, but do not want to encourage this behavior. Was try to find Fab One's email to write for support and sympathy, but yesterday he let me feed him tuna out of my hand and came out and demanded scratching. He declines, respectfully, to consider living elsewhere so far. Was greatly cheered by seduction of Magic from his ambition to remain Basement Cat. Perhaps one day New Cat will have a name (considered cat from Coraline, but naming after him a problem) and take his place in the sunlight. It is very dusty and hard (for me, not for slim, youthful Kitteh)to creep into understairs.

At 07:37 Blogger Jess said...

Good morning, lovely people! I just found out that one of my contacts had her Hotmail account hacked by Nigerian scammers. They got to her entire address book, and my private email address is in it. Crap.

If one of your friends has a Hotmail account, and you get an email from said friend asking you to wire money to Australia immediately, ask yourself: are they really in Australia? Do they really have a sister there who needs an EMERGENCY HYSTERECTOMY (to be performed, no less, by Professional Surgeons from Israel, as no one in Perth has the expertise)? My guess would be no. Just saying.

This is Ally, every morning, the minute I sit down with breakfast:

Hey. Hey. Hey, Mom. Hey. You. Mom. Hey. Hey. Hey you. Look. Mom, look. Hey. Look. Hey. Hey. Hi. Mom. Mom. Hi. Hi Mom. Hey. Look. I'm down here. Hey. Hey. I smell something. Something smells. Hey. Hey. Hey. Hi. Mom. Mom. Mom.

...thoughout which I will have been petting her, saying things like "Cats don't eat Cheerios," and "What?!" It does not stop till she's been allowed to stand on my lap (not sit: stand) and lick my hand for a while. Then she wanders off for a nap.

Edie's much simpler. If you could see what was in the thought bubble over Edie's head, it'd look like this:


...or possibly this:


She'll leap up onto the back of my chair and do one or the other, right over my shoulder, till I turn around.

Cats. I just heard one go "brrrt." That'd be my cue to drop what I'm doing and make with the pettin'.

At 07:57 Blogger Marjorie said...

Jess, sorry to hear that. And yes, a certain amount of checking would seem to be in roder with that kind of mail.

Going back to cats, just turned a page in the Guardian and found this.

Makes all of our relations with our cats seem completely normal, doesn't it?. Poor Shadow.

At 08:10 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Oh, what wonderful fun to wake up to!!!

Welcome Besina! Thank you!

Laura J (And anyone else) you can always write to me, my e-mail (Yes, I need that on the site) is

Jess, I won the Irish Lottery last week! It amazes me that the Nigerian scammers keep this up, and saddens me as obviously there are people who fall for it.

"I will give you millions! Help someone! And all I need is you SS# and bank details!!!!!!!"

(Tho again, anyone stupid enough to....I mean, a friend writes and asks for money for something like this and you don't CALL them????? )

There is a wonderful site somewhere with this group of people who scam the scammers, it is REALLY funny, must find it...

Tea. More reading.

At 08:25 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I have to leave for my Day in 10 minutes, she says hopefully? Will anyone bid me Good Morning?

At 08:29 Blogger Jess said...


Good morning!

What was really funny to me was the idea that they just don't have qualified surgeons in Perth.

I think I know this scam-the-scammers site of which you speak, actually. Hilarious. :)

How be the Wild Leopard Pack this morning?

At 08:34 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Wishing you tea and fair weather.

At 08:36 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Hi You guys!

The Leopards are fine, Magic cae out, Lear and Mab were interested, and Venus and Mim are doing all sorts of lovely Bengal things. in prep for the Nap portion of the day. Which, I believe lasts until I get home tonight.

Off for my ride, and then to work, my dears. Make me smile!

At 08:38 Blogger spacedlaw said...

The definition of the day goes to mermaid: Sushi with tits.
(Not sure how I came up with that, better not ask either...)

At 08:38 Blogger Jess said...

Happy riding! Get your shoes nice and smelly for Mim. :D

At 08:40 Blogger Jess said...

Sushi with tits would be sushits. Hey, don't shoot the messenger! Just sayin'.

At 08:41 Blogger Marjorie said...

Good Morning Quiche - enjoy your ride.

At 08:43 Blogger spacedlaw said...

More like Sutits. Or Shutits.

At 08:46 Blogger Arwenn said...

Getting a little close to shut-it :) that's an awesome definitiong though...

Good morning and Happy Riding!!

At 08:47 Blogger Jess said...

But where does the pickled ginger go?


At 08:49 Blogger spacedlaw said...

I am eating ALL of the pickled ginger, I LOVE the stuff.

At 08:53 Blogger Jess said...

A pickled ginger
slice between each bite of fish
cleanses the palate.

At 08:53 Blogger DataGoddess said...

you all are seriously silly, which is exactly what I need right now.

Went to the pain doc for the second set of injections into my knees (the lubricating-chicken-grease stuff).

She hit a nerve. OMG, serious pain, my leg shot out of its own accord and almost kicked her solidly in the head.

Good thing her instinct was to pull back the needle and move back herself. It left me shaking from the adrenalin rush.

That was *NOT* the start I wanted to the day, since this afternoon I am driving to meet new sweetie. However, it doesn't seem to have made a lasting effect, thank heavens.

At 08:57 Blogger spacedlaw said...

That is some serious kick start (and no pun intended)! I hope the shot worked its magic nevertheless.

At 08:58 Blogger Arwenn said...

But pickled ginger
as a sushi adornment
tickles the mermaid

At 09:00 Blogger spacedlaw said...

I suppose the mermaid could always stick some in her hair (all bunched up so the ginger looks like a flower)...

At 09:00 Blogger Ani said...

I had a seriously perturbed kitty this morning myself--she had to fast since last night, as she has a vet appt today. She spent the morning routine underfoot telling me about the lack of food in her bowl, with me going, "I know. I'm sorry. This day is not going to get any better, Finn. Yes. Sorry. Very sorry."

At 09:03 Blogger Dan Guy said...

When you come home late,
see bengal re-enactors
in "There Will Be Blood".

"My name's Mim. This is my accomplice, Venus. If I say we are Bengals you will agree."

"If I have a paw, and you have a featherstick here, and my paw reaches acrooooooss the room, I bat your featherstick. I... bat.... your..... featherstick."

At 09:10 Blogger Jess said...

Blood and feathers clump
together-- on your Jimmy Choos.
Sing a requiem for shoes.

At 09:15 Blogger Arwenn said...

Draw blood, kill feathers
a bengal’s life is busy.
No wonder they nap.

At 09:26 Blogger Dan Guy said...

They're too large to wear,
but too small to be lived in;
sadness in shoe lust.

"Code talkers" of old
inspire Bengals to use
the language of birds.

At 09:42 Blogger Arwenn said...

A bengal culture
handed down from cat to cat
- really scary thought

At 10:05 Blogger gaypet said...

That was so fun to read, Q! Thanks for that.

Back to Flannery O'Conor...

At 10:08 Blogger Jess said...

Chirp into a shoe,
hide inside a tuna can.
Dance with the ductwork.
Sing for a feather.

At 11:27 Blogger Chantrelle said...

That bong-cat story is not uncommon...i remember coming home from work when i was in college to find "friends" blowing pot smoke into my cat's face. I was so mad! Poor kitty, he already wasn't very smart! Although he used to talk to me, he'd say hello and my name. "herrrro? rorrrrynn?" (he couldn't say b's) ;-)

Hope the ride is lovely.

Love the haikus and sushi-tits. I remember seeing an article ages ago about this company you could hire for catering where the sushi was served off of naked women. They were the buffet table basically. Seemed like an excellent business plan to me!

Off to finish folding bens laundry and head to the library

At 11:28 Blogger ariandalen said...

Hi, Besina! Have you found a jacket yet? They have all sorts of nice buckles.


Oh, yeah!
I smell your spicy brains.


At 11:30 Blogger Dan Guy said...

Eating sushi off of naked people has been getting a lot of press lately, thanks in large part to various reality shows showcasing it. I find it unappealing.

At 11:30 Blogger Uisge said...

Venus=hussy. Look at that spread legged pose (last shot). Your night makes me feel a little better about my night (it was bad). More on that later.

At 11:31 Blogger ariandalen said...

OW! Toni that does not sound like the way to start the day. At least it isn't still hurting, if I'm reading you right.

I'm baking banana nut bread.

At 11:34 Blogger spacedlaw said...

More silly cat discourse (Caos, once more): "cuddle. wantcuddlewantcuddle. oooohcrackers! wantcracherwantwantwant droolwantgimmmegimmegimme. Cuddles.wantcuddles.NOW"
Now I have a slightly disgruntled huge cat sprawled all over me. He's warm. And heavy. And I can't see the keyboard very well...

At 11:41 Blogger ariandalen said...

I can see a two slices of pickled ginger as pasties for a mermaid. Granted, it may depend upon the relative slices of ginger and mermaid as to whether or not one slice per breast is enough.

I know a couple of women who allowed themselves to be buffet settings, but that was a couple of years ago. I'm not sure they were completely nude; I think they each wore a thong. I'm with Dan, it's not particularly appealing to me either.

At 11:44 Blogger Jess said...

Oh my crikey. Talk aboutcher Food Porn. :D

At 11:48 Blogger ariandalen said...

I'm just adding my contribution to the virtual buffet. I didn't start the whole spread. ;)

At 11:50 Blogger DataGoddess said...

Don't they cover the um, buffet with plastic wrap, too? I think between the idea of making a person an object and the look of skin under plastic wrap it wouldn't be an appetizing scene for me, at least.

Now I can get behind ginger pasties. Or rather enjoy the view from the front ;-)

At 12:03 Blogger Jess said...

"Ginger Pasties" sounds like a type of Girl Scout cookie.

Well it does!

At 12:12 Blogger ariandalen said...

Not sure about the plastic wrap, but that would make you sweat more, not less.

No, Jess, that's just in your mind.

At 12:28 Blogger Phiala said...

Leave you all alone for half a day, and look what happens - mermaid tartare!

And leave it to Jess to come up with new Girl Scout Cookies recipes...

I have not finished my paper, but I finished a different (less urgent) project.

And I cleaned my desk. That counts, right?

At 12:32 Blogger spacedlaw said...

Sushi wirth tits (or teats, if you are thus oriented)

At 12:33 Blogger ariandalen said...

Clean desk absolutely counts!

At 12:49 Blogger Phiala said...

"Clean" might be overstating the case a bit.

At 12:52 Blogger Jess said...

Okay, Nathalie: put me down for a box of Ginger Pasties, and two boxes of Sushits. But I wouldn't do this for just any Fiend Scout.

At 12:58 Blogger spacedlaw said...

"Sushits" looks really bad...

At 13:04 Blogger Jess said...

Does it? :D

At 13:04 Blogger DataGoddess said...

What does the uniform for a Fiend Scout look like?

At 13:06 Blogger Jess said...

Instead of a sash for badges, it's got a bandolier.

At 13:20 Blogger Na said...

Yes to Bandoliers!
Yes to cookies!
No to badges and Leaders. :)

And what do Fiend Scouts scout?

At 13:26 Blogger Arwenn said...

Fiend Scouts could certainly scout for mischief.....and chocolate. Not necessarily in that order.

At 13:27 Anonymous Anonymous said...

LOL I'm assuming that badges for Fiend scouts are all skull shaped?

At 13:29 Blogger Arwenn said...

There could be badges for FUN things like poison-making and taxidermy!

At 13:31 Blogger Na said...

Okay, skull-shaped badges would be good. But I say that to get one, a person simply claims it, perhaps with a burst fiendish laughter.

At 13:34 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I am not sure I am ever going to catch this one up...

Saw something about Saran Wrap being hot, and not Fiend Scouts...

Where am I when the cool stuff is happening????

Wait till I get home THEN you will skedaddle, hee-hee...


At 13:34 Blogger ariandalen said...

Fiend Scouts scout for spicy brains, night gardens, lolcats, pets, chocolate, good food, good books, good music and whatever our Queen Empress bids us.

Sounds good to me, Kali!

At 13:47 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Heeheehee..we could have different kinds of skulls for different skills. And there definitely should be some pirate-y ones.

At 15:19 Blogger Marjorie said...

I think the food on naked women thing started in japan - I seem to recall Michael Palin having it in one of his travel shows. Very odd.

I find this particular meaning of pasties amusing. These are pasties, and that is the mental picture i always get :-)

Fiendish scouts. Love it. Can we have other shaped badges for our bandoliers, too?

At 15:32 Blogger Ticia said...

Yay! I have a cute link:

Not Bengals, but.. baby hegdehog!

At 15:34 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Marjorie now I'm hungry! I love pasties. Even the kind they make in Scotland (Forfar Bridies). I was wondering if anyone else thought "meat pies" when they saw that word.;)

Sure, we can have all kinds of badges. There should definitely be a Bengal Wrangling one for the Bengal owners.;)

At 15:35 Blogger Adri said...

Wow, Marjorie, those people are serious about their pasties!

Mmm. Pasties. Now I really want one.

At 15:36 Blogger Jess said...

Pasty Tradition: whenever we go in to Peterborough city centre (when we're over your way, Marjorie), we go buy a pasty each and then stand in front of the Cathedral, and eat them. Reverently, while looking at the Cathedral. I always get cheese and mushroom.

That's my kind of church.

Badges. Honestly. We don't need no steeenking badges. If I hear that any of you have come up with a Fiend Scout Salute, I'm just going feel sorry I said anything. :D

At 15:41 Blogger Arwenn said...

Nah, salutes imply oaths....none of that for Fiend Scouts :)

Maybe a secret handshake or something.

At 15:44 Blogger Marjorie said...

No. No saluting. The badges would have to be strictly non-merit based, I think. Not FOR anything...

Peterborough is nice to look at, but it's not my kind of church. It's only got 5 bells and they're bloody heavy. No fun

A really difficult handshake! So you feel confident that it can't possibly get more awkward than it already has! \o/

At 15:44 Blogger Lexocat said...

No promising to do one's duty to Fod? ;) Think of the missed opportunity!

Re pasty/pasties: I thought the two were pronounced differently, depending on whether one was planning to wear or eat the pasty in question. Though, with pickled ginger this distinction may be blurred...

At 15:46 Blogger Jess said...

Marjorie: I meant the standing-there-eating-pasties-reverently was my kind of church. ;)

At 15:47 Blogger Marjorie said...

Ah. yes. Feelfree to come and eat pasties standing outside Wells Cathedral next time you're passing. (I think there'e a pasty shop conveniently located opposite the west front, unless they've moved it recently)

At 15:49 Blogger Marjorie said...

Lexo - I only know how to pronounce the kind you eat; you could well be right!

At 15:50 Blogger Arwenn said...

All the good cathedrals are pasty-adjacent these days.

At 15:53 Blogger Marjorie said...

Arwenn - So true ;-)

At 15:55 Anonymous Anonymous said...

No salute needed. Not necessary. I just suggested badges because I have a terminal Flair addiction.;)

Jess that's my kind of church too.

At 16:06 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Dang, I sure know how to kill a thread.

At 16:13 Blogger Jess said...

Nah, Kali. We're all just contemplating pasties.

At 16:16 Blogger Marjorie said...

Speak for yourself!

At 16:21 Blogger Marjorie said...

Some of us were just trying, and failing, to mulit-task.

(and now I've killed it)

At 16:37 Blogger Phiala said...

I'm around, just struggling with work. I didn't think y'all would be particularly interested in my efforts to figure out just what "Singularity in backsolve at level 0, block 1" might mean.

At 16:49 Blogger Marjorie said...

I think I've heard of the Singularity. It's probably not a good thing to find...

At 16:51 Blogger Lexocat said...

I was busy figuring out how I want to respond to the ugly email I just got. It's one of those messages where the sender would have been well advised to write the email but wait until the next day to hit "send."

It was a hissy fit on screen.

Justified upset at miscommunication and lack of support for an activity and sent to the entire board of a volunteer org, not directed at me in particular, but still icky to get.

Makes me want to leave the group rather than work to smooth her ruffled feathers, though. More work than it's worth, kwim?

Off to ponder...

At 16:55 Blogger Marjorie said...

Lexa, that sounds v. unpleasant - even when not directed at you personally. Maybe she will calm down given a little time, if it was a heat of the mement mailing.{{{Lexa}}}

At 16:56 Blogger Marjorie said...

Very sleepy now. G'Night all.

At 16:57 Blogger Lexocat said...

Fiendish dreams, Marjorie :)

At 17:00 Blogger Dragonsally said...


Man, am I ever glad I'd had my breakfast before reading comments. Pickled Ginger. YUM
Pasties YUM
Sushi? nahh.

Tysie can say a very emphatic NOOOOO.
She also says hello, now and hungry. Clever pussy cats, we all has em!

At 17:00 Blogger Marjorie said...

Thank you. I think.

At 17:24 Blogger Lexocat said...

Sally, thanks!

Marjorie, yeah, it's meant as a good thing ;)

At 19:02 Blogger EmilyLady said...

I am a bit late catching up. These are busy busy times.

It seems that home life is never boring with Bengals around. I'm not sure I could handle it. Goodness gracious, how do you handle personal-assistanting AND all the Bengals?

At 19:48 Blogger Siri said...

tickybox wave

At 20:07 Blogger EmilyLady said...

Well, I guess it's about time I asked what a tickybox is.

What is a tickybox?

At 20:15 Blogger Siri said...

When you type in the leave the comment box, there's a little box underneath where you put your id and password that allows comments to go to your email address, if you want to. If you don't check it, you don't always know when your favorite people have commented. Unless you preview your comment before publishing it, you have to do a 2nd comment in order to tick the box, hence ticky box.

When I don't have the time or energy to post a lot, but want to know what's happening, I'll tickybox, so I can keep up.

At 20:16 Blogger Dragonsally said...

Ticky box.
The box you tick to make sure you get email updates of comments.

Often forgotten by those of us in a hurry to post our comments.

At 20:17 Blogger Dr. Wicked said...

I had to ask too, people have to post a comment in order to be emailed upon the posting of new comments. So if they forget to check the box when they post meaningful things, they do small little blurblets about the ticky box in order to be emailed.

I think we should require ticky box haikus.

At 20:18 Blogger EmilyLady said...

Many many many thanks.

At 20:20 Blogger Siri said...

Ticky Box Comment

Usually means spicy brains

Are not functioning

At 20:22 Blogger Siri said...

Lack of spicey brains
Causes misspelled words to post;
Creating more woe.

At 20:23 Blogger Adri said...

Blargh. Hit a roadblock in my story this afternoon and will be forced to re watch some canon episodes to figure out how to fix it. OH DARN

DG-- can't wait to hear how your sweetie-meeting went. Hopefully lovely!

As a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts, I approve of Fiendscouting! I made a Fiend Flair badge on Facebook flair and sent it to as many fiends as I had on my list. :)

At 20:25 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

I have NO idea where you all have been mentally today, I know I read them, but could someone give me a wee synopsis here? My brain is in meltdown. Just home....

Yes, Dr Wicked is right. Ticky Box Haikus from now on, if you forget the ticky box, sound good?

(I happen to like Haiku)

New post? No new post? I have a ghost of an idea, but not sure I have a brain....

Can I borrow some?

At 20:26 Blogger Siri said...

Jeff wants haiku posts.
Where are his contributions?
I hurl a gauntlet.

At 20:28 Blogger Dragonsally said...

If I had brains to spare Quiche, I'd lend you some.

new post!

At 20:34 Blogger Siri said...

I write haiku posts.
I think no one reads them though.
Writing to the wind.

At 20:40 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Emily, Bengals are relaxing after personal assistanting...

Will try for new post...

At 20:52 Blogger Malena said...

Your babies grew up! They look so different. Who knew the same breed could produce a silver Meow and a ocelot Meow. They are beautiful Deva.
Is my Mim still aggressive as hell? wink:)

At 20:59 Blogger Arwenn said...

Siri never fear
all your comments are read here
always with delight!

At 20:59 Blogger Jess said...

Quiche, some things are best left a mystery. But if it's only a synopsis you're after, it went: Bengal haiku; sushi with tits; eating sushi off naked people; whether or not the naked people are kept separate from the sushi by saran wrap; ginger pasties; Girl Scout cookies; Fiend Scout uniforms; badges; baby hedgehogs; Cornish pasties; pasty-adjacent Cathedrals;, and finally tickybox haiku.

I'm not sure how we got there, either. I can't claim to be innocent, but I can and will beg ignorance, and even insanity, if there's the remotest chance I might get away with it.

At 21:02 Blogger Siri said...

Thank you, fiend Arwenn.
Positive feedback prompts one
to continue art.

At 21:06 Blogger Siri said...

On the other hand,
failure to respond to art
makes one go to bed.

At 21:17 Blogger FabulousLorraine said...

Only with Shoes, Malena! She's pretty fierce with them.

Jess, thank you, that clears up most everything.

'Night Siri, lovely Haiku!!!

New post up!

I am having some house issues. You know how one thing, leads to the next thing, and so on? Sigh.

Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض
