Joke of The Day!

A woman and a man are involved in a car accident; it's a bad one. Both of their cars are totally demolished but amazingly neither of them is hurt. God works in mysterious ways!

After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says: "So you're a man, that's interesting - I'm a woman! Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but we're unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days".

Flattered, the man replies, "Oh yes, I agree with you completely, this must be a sign from God!"

The woman continues, "And look at this, here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine, celebrate our good fortune and see where the evening leads."

Then she hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle and immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man.

The man asks, "Aren't you having any?"
The woman replies, "No. I think I'll just wait for the police....

Sick People!

This week I read a story in one of the papers that sickened me, not that that's anything unusual with all the violence and suffering that is going on around the world but the story of Holly Thacker - aged 34 really made me wonder what is wrong with people today.

Holly Thacker. a mother of two girls decided that as their pet cat had 'gone a bit weird' and had scratched her she was going to get rid of it by boiling it to death on a boil wash in her washing machine!!!

The vet who was called to examine the body after her horrified ex husband (mmm - wonder why he left her?) was shown it in the bin she had dumped it in said " the terror the cat suffered while drowning was revealed by broken claws on all four paws. It's skin was red - showing how hot the water was. The disorientation of a rotating drum and the filling with boiling water would have been a terrifying process"

Holly Thacker has been found guilty of animal cruelty by the court nr Hellesdon, Norfolk - her home town - and has been told she could face jail. Sentencing has been adjourned.

Well lets hope she spends a little time as a guest of HMP and hopefully while she's there she'll get to share a cell with a nice Psychotic animal lover who may be better located and better equipped to explain to her just how much that poor little cat suffered just because she didn't want it anymore.

Holly Thacker may you burn in hell!


Well she was jailed, albeit not for very long, but jailed non the less. The RSPCA blasted the lenient sentence thier spokesman said "This is the most horrific deliberate act of cruelty I have ever had to deal with" and the reality of it is that she will probably only serve half of that. However I for one am glad to see she is serving some time for this, even if it does end up only being three weeks. I figure that's still got to be three weeks of shit for her, and I'm still hanging onto the hope of a mentally unstable, animal rights activist for a cell mate!

Words Of Wisdom

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be."

Douglas Adams

A Riddle?

Shown above are 4 men buried up to their necks in the ground. They can not move so can only look forward. Between A and B is a brick wall which can not be seen through. They know that between them are 4 hats, 2 x black and 2 x white, but they do not know which colour they are wearing. In order to avoid being shot one of them must call out to the executioner the colour of their hat. If they get it wrong, everyone will be shot. They are not allowed to talk to each other and have 10 minutes to fathom it out.

After 1 minute:

Q Which one of them calls out ?

Q. Why is he 100% certain of the colour of his hat ?

This is not a trick question. There are no outside influences nor other ways of communicating. They cannot move and are buried in a straight line. So A & B can only see their respective sides of the brick wall, C can see B and D can see B & C.


Went to the dreaded Dentist today for my 6 monthly checkup - No fillings - hoorah!

Last Night's Storm


listening to Wagner
as outside in the dark the wind blows a cold rain the
trees wave and shake lights go
off and on the walls creak and the cats run under the

Wagner battles the agonies, he’s emotional but
solid, he’s the supreme fighter, a giant in a world of
pygmies, he takes it straight on through, he breaks
astonishing FORCE of sound as

everything here shakes
in fierce gamble

yes, Wagner and the storm intermix with the wine as
nights like this run up my wrists and up into my head and
back down into the

some men never
and some men never

but we’re all alive

A Spy Amongst Them!

Sunday's Smile :)

Meet Smodge!

I'd like to introduce Smodge, who will no doubt feature in many blog posts. He's entertaining in a slightly unhinged sort of way. I am the 'cat' lady and I will no doubt become the cliche as I get older. Kittens not kids - that's my theory. Cat's are low maintenance, self cleaning and nobody calls Social Services when you go away for the night and leave them with a big bowl of Go-Cat and fresh water but no babysitter!
