Tuesday Miscellany

How is it that I can subscribe to a new blog almost every week and yet there is never enough to read? I fear sometimes that the pace of technology has zapped out the part of my brain that once was accustomed to waiting for things. Now, if a page doesn't load in .00000000000923 seconds I start to get huffy. So perhaps the same thing is happening with my blog rations. I started out reading a few blogs a day, then a dozen, then a couple dozen. I subscribe to at least thirty blogs a day but now it isn't enough. I have a theory that a new brain is developing in humans that requires a steady diet of 0's and 1's to survive. (You know how brain theory suggests that there are really "four" brains: "the amphibian brain," "the emotional brain," *"the embarass your family brain" and the *"What do I want to do with my life brain.)"

So please, blog friends, write more! More, more, more!

Or else I will sick Figaro the diet-starved attack cat on you:

*Okay, I forget the other two.

Also, I contributed a little something to Susan Bono's online column, Searchlights & Signal Flares Details below:

It’s that time of year again, and I bet you’ve got at least one writer on your gift list. Don’t have a clue what to get? Let Searchlights & Signal Flares ease your confusion and put the spirit of inspired giving back into the holidays.

I've noticed that people with cats are always threatening others with them....what's up with that?

Great answer, btw, to the writer-present question.

We're a powerful minion, we cat-owners. Do not mess with us. That's why. :)

I'm totally scared. I'm serious.

I can't believe you'd actually wait .00000000000923 seconds for anything online, that is the patience of Job as far as I am concerned, very zen.

I read lots of blogs, but haven't subscribed to any, I'm not sure I know how.
