That said, meet Norman II. Yes that's right, there was a Norman prior to him. He lived about 4 years!
You might be wondering why poor Norman II looks like a Vampire got to him. Look to the left of the pictures and you'll see the Vamp himself. Jerk. For the past 7 years Jake (the cat) has had a serious oral fixation. If it isn't tampons & spaghetti straps, it's flowers & string...he will eat anything. It's a wonder he hasn't had to be rushed to the Kitty ER with bowel obstruction. Anyhoo, Norman I & II Jake has never bothered...mainly because the table is narrow....UNTIL NOW. Ok I take part of that back, he will go after the plant if I'm watering it in the sink and leave it unattended...which is rare. LONG STORY even longer, Jake the Jerk recently got ahold of Norman II. I don't know if he was just pissed from being left home alone all day with the windows shut becaue it was an unusually cold day in San Diego (hold your laughter), or if he was just feeling snarky. I will never know. But as you can see above, he got to him.
I came up with a game plan to protect Noman II.
I decided to re-introduce Jake to Edward. He may be small, but he's FAAAAASSST.
Ok my cat can certainly be a jerk, but I still love him, in some twisted manner.
On to other random things, I have had such a hard time adjusting to this time change. Christ, it's only an hour ahead. BUT, I'm just not tired when I should be. Sure I feel groggy driving home from work, but once home, I'm not tired till midnight. With all my energy last night, I ended up baking cupcakes for DG, as today is his birthday. I attempted to do "golf-ish" cupcakes...and I think I faired pretty well for someone that is hardly creative in the baking department.
And as if this blog couldn't get more random, here's the shirt I bought today. I have nowhere to wear it tomorrow, but am hoping one of my girlfriends or DG will say "let's go drink green beer." Sweet.
