Goodbye Kiddieland

It was a great weekend, but bittersweet.

On Saturday morning Pat and I picked up my friend Jen and her son to head to Kiddieland. This was Kiddieland's last weekend.

It was great to see Jen and meet her son for the first time. He is a great kid and really seemed to have a blast all EIGHT hours at Kiddieland. He even rode the Little Dipper, their figure eight rollercoaster.

Yes, please treat me like shit this week, I certainly enjoy it.

This week has just been special in terms of people communicating to me. Two separate people, a realtor for a property we were looking to purchase and a project manager at my (soon to be) old job both took their jabs. They are so incredulous, I thought I would share. Not just to help you laugh a bit, but maybe to purge them both from my system. We will go in the order received:
My client appreciates the interest your clients have in his property.

Embarassing death situations, from tween to crazy cat lady

I just tweeted that I am reading "The Mindful Way Through Depression," eating Ben and Jerry's, sitting alone on the bed with our cats. This is clearly one step from my full crazy cat lady status. In fact, I immediately thought this would be an embarrassing way to die. With melted ice cream in my lap, a book of depression to the side and three hungry cats gnawing at my toes. This is probably the analog to dying while mastubating as a pre-teen in your parent's house.

Rest in Peace, Mufasa, We love and miss you

The best way to remember Mufasa is that he is the only creature on God's green earth and under the stars that could keep Pat on a schedule. Somehow, with his feline perseverance, he was able to completely thwart the Jurgaisenberg Uncertainty Principle and keep Pat on a schedule.

Mufasa was completely Pat's cat. 100%. Of course, he was friendly to everyone, but Pat was the only person that mattered.

I have seen my future...

I have seen my future and it involved lots of cats and the downfall of society as we know it. And I am fine with it.
