A new old friend and the next phase of cat feeding

Brady, who has commented on this site, has been in Seward the past couple of days visiting Concordia and checking on some work done at the Center for Liturgical Arts. We met him in real life and had dinner with him Sunday and Monday, and learned that he is a very cool dude! Brad, you pick good friends. (Brad and Brady both taught in Baltimore.) Safe travels, Brady!

In other news, the cat feeding has not been working. Emme doesn’t like the wet food anymore and Wally just licks the gravy. Ralph bursts out of the bathroom when he is released and gobbles up everyone else’s leftovers. Tonight, I tried just serving half of a can and dividing it among three plates.

I set them down on the kitchen floor. Emme left right away, Wally licked the gravy and Ralph ran from plate to plate, gobbling it all up.

Eh, at least he ran a little. That’s gotta be progress, right?

    We should teach Wally how to open the dishwasher and put the dishes away.

You ain’t got no legs, Lieutenant Dan

This has been Lloyd’s spot for the past month as he recovers from his cold. I especially like when he sits like this, just like Lieutenant Dan.

I saw a commercial for an app that lets you see what you’d look like with different colored hair. I downloaded a free one just for fun. I could only try the colors that were free since all the extra ones cost money. No matter – I think I like the purple best! We went […]

Sorry, plants.

It is a cruel, cruel twist of fate that for the past year, I have been the caretaker of the plants at work. Let’s just say that things are not going well. Today I took a scissors to their stalks and hacked them way back. We’ll see if any of them can recover.

Just a third.

This post would be better if I had a video, but that didn’t work out. I was talking to Rachel about how fat Ralph was getting, but it’s kind of a loss because I free-feed them, except for the can of food. That is something I can control. The plan this week has been to […]

Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetables: Prep Time 26 hours

I did it! Lloyd bought some soy sauce and I made the meal. It all went together quickly, thanks to my totally-planned prep work yesterday. At Shogun, the chef has a giant bowl with a giant mountain of butter he cuts off a hunk and puts it under everything he cooks, as do I. It […]
