I've Got Nothing
Well, I do have a full social calendar this weekend, but what I really want most is rest. Respite. Not leaving the house. A huge comforter and unlimited CSIs. A Diet Coke fountain soda machine and a hot pizza delivery. And a weekend full of being clean without really having to go through the effort of showering and hair straightening. And a tabby and a calico in their respective places; one on the arm of the couch above my head, one on the sofa back with his paw conspicuously moving closer to my face.

In other news, said tabby called my best friend at 12:32 this morning by stepping on speed dial, and, upon her hearing an unintelligible man's voice in the background (read: something on Court TV, as it is of course on 24 hours a day in my house), sent her into a two-hour protective frenzy in which she considered calling out Navy Seals, Peter Parker, and yes, MY EX (?!?!) in an effort to get into my apartment and save me from a stranger's clutches.

Now that's love, people.

Your cats call people on your cell phone? Who knew ;)

Blogger Kelly said...

That is hilarious.

Imagine if you had been watching CSI when they were taking notes on a corpse they had found? She's have likely driven a tank through your front door!

That is truly love.

That's great!

My cats...not as helpful. Sierra would have hacked up her dinner and hidden in the closet for the rest of the night, while Nevada would have half cracked one eye and immediately fallen back into sleep.

Bastards.

Blogger Kris said...

I know. I feel lucky not to have pets of the useless variety, like those hermit crabs and parakeets of my youth. ;)

66, I totally forgot that happened. So true.

Kelly, see! You totally get it!

That is one talented cat!

I had a weekend like you're describing over Labor Day. I highly recommend it.

Blogger Sandra said...

Yep, glad you weren't watching Nip/Tuck. Your tabby rocks.

If you could only train those cats to order the pizza, then you'd have something.

They'd probably order anchovies of course.

Your cats are fabulous. You definitely don't have to worry about dying and nobody finding your body-- or maybe I'm the only one who worries about that kind of stuff.

Pizza, CSI, and fountain Diet Coke sounds like a dream weekend...

Blogger Kris said...

Mystery, you are so invited. And you aren't alone - I worry on a regular basis about the cats neglecting to call 911 and instead devouring me limb by limb. Sweet revenge for me feeding them the same kibble day after day after day . . .

Blogger Evil Genius said...

OMG that's hysterical! But yes, that is love that your friend got so worried about you. We all need at least one friend like that.

Oh, and, um, did you say she's got Peter Parker's phone number? Cause, that's a friend I'd sure like to have.

Man, I want to see B-gal drive a tank through your front door.

In fact, I am going to arrange this right now...

:)

Ha! That's awesome.

And those are the best kinds of weekends. I always try to have one supremely lazy day on my weekends -- but then, I get three days for now. I think if I had two, I'd have to ditch that practice.

Two words: HBO's Autopsy. If you have HBO on demand, and you like CSI, watch the real think on their autopsy series. It's my favorite, stay in and make coffee, sit and do nothing while my kitten chews on my hair activity. Which, I know realize , makes me sound rather scary.

Blogger JordanBaker said...

Did you know that since your cat can dial the phone, you can now register him/her as an assistive animal?

Blogger Brookelina said...

I am so with you on the rest. I have not spent a whole day home by myself in weeks. Sunday I plan on sitting around in my pj's watching football, reading the paper, and eating junk food. Bliss.

Tell tabby to call me, I'll be home all day.

Blogger Irish Red said...

That sounds like HEAVEN!!! Only Law&Order instead of CSI.

so can you call those Navy Seals at will? And if so...can ya send them over to my place??

:)

Blogger Nancy Drew said...

Those are VERY talented kitties!!!! They're only looking out for your social life.....extra pampering is called for....

Blogger Heather B. said...

Can I come over and have pizza tomorrow?

Ya know you're tempted.

yummmm pizza.

Blogger Kris said...

I see you survived the blogger hh, hb! Pizza does sound fabu. And I know you have an extra bottle of Boone's Farm at your place ...

Blogger Portnoy said...

Wow I've heard the phrase 'ass dial' but I ain't gonna touch what I'm thinking. Lemme ask you this? How is it you can talk about Nothing and 21 people comment? You're the Seinfeld Blog.

As a side note, under my links Profile of the week, I might have a match for you. Or checkout The Shanghai Cowboy

Blogger goldennib said...

A rest is definitely called for.

You have a good friend.

You have the best life.

Blogger yournamehere said...
