Damn It, I Was Going to Write a Lengthy Piece Today But Then I Got Distracted By Pointless Crap and Forgot What I Was Going to Write About, So Here’s a Cat Picture Instead

It’ll probably come back to me as soon as I post this. But honestly, if I can’t remember, was it really important enough to write about at length? Probably not! Anyway, Spice looks good today. Enjoy.
Man, the same thing almost happened to me today.
However, I don’t have a cat to take pictures of, so I gritted my teeth, shot a bird at the plethora of distractions, and wrote a lengthy piece about Leonnig and Rucker’s “I Alone Can Fix It.” It took me several hours to write, but since I have no cute cat…..
Spice, by the way, looks good.
Awwww! Spice is nice!
some days, it’s just best to default to a cat pic…
…have we reached the point where we tell a writer to write things down ?
Clearly the cat hypnotized you!
Cat is wonderful. Don’t worry about the writing it will come when it comes.
Our cats are smarter than us.
Spice is beautiful. >^^<
Thank you for the cat. That’s about all I could manage today, anyway… Have a great week!
I hate not writing things down immediately, I’ll pull over in traffic if I must rather than forget. (And yes there are ink pens – plural – in the truck.)
Senility sucks ;-)
Iz a verra nize kitty picture, yaas.
Well the other day I had a world-shattering remark I wanted to make about one of your twitters, but when I came here to look for an on-topic post I couldn’t remember what it was. So if you want to be hopelessly forgetful, you have to get in line.
Spice is pretty but looks disappointed in you.
Spice: “Are you sure you put out the wet food today? Maybe you should go check. Just to be sure.”
Awww for the Spice pix! BTW you are getting a lot of love and heavy recommends over on the Ilona Andrews blog today — she asked for SF/Space Opera audio book recommends and sooooo many people list you!
A moment of human forgetfulness that Spice or any other reasonable cat will accept comes when the service humans forget that they just put out food for their furry overlord…and then put out more food.
