Alien kitty with day-glo brain, seems about the right note with which to wrap up this week-long attempt at Ms Grout’s prescribed daily posting schedule.

(almost) daily post!

“…and then, Little Red Riding Hood, Grandmama kicked the mean nasty Wolf in the hoohoo, and went off to teach her community college crochet class, in a truly stylin’ poke-bonnet and tabby fur combo.”

Actually, I deeply disapprove of specially designed ‘cute’ clothing for domesticated companion animals — it seems to militate against the natural dignity of other species, an offensive attempt to anthropomorphize them, and claim yet more territory from the bodies of other species than our own.

Unless they’ve knitted it themselves.  Nice work, Grandma.

What I should’ve been posting yesterday…

Ole skool gangbanger seeks quality home, Cristal in drinking bowl, all bitches strictly on leads.  Getting blunted on catnip has stunted my creativity, but may be expanding my reality show career after guest appearance on Supervet…

 

Yeah yeah, I missed a day.  I gotta life man.  As a verb.  I was busy lifin’.

today’s ‘daily blogpost’ project

Yeah, you didn’t get it wrong, and you’re not having hallucinations.  (Knock off the gin a bit, though.  It’s getting to be a problem.)

It’s a robin in a flower-hat.  

What?  Man, it’s fucking tough posting a blogpost every day!  You try it!

You can expect a whole lotta cute animals in titfers over the next few days.  And you are welcome!

Me & Pam – week 6

8932033483_187b8a780e_z

Ta-dah!  Here we are, somewhere around week 15 of the year so far, and…. er…   well, my resolutions are good.  Here I am, catching up with my weekly (!) blogging about the exercises and projects involved in reading Ms Grout’s ‘Art and Soul, Reloaded‘.

So.  Week 6, then.  *coughs*  Ms Grout’s essay for this chapter is about the practice of daily blogging.  A practice she is fairly faithful to, for anyone else who reads https://pamgrout.com/.  Much more faithful than I am, at any rate!  And the task assigned, for this chapter, is to start a blog.  *coughs again*  Well, as we all know, starting something is the easy part…

Oh, I missed a bit.  The complete task is to start a blog – job done, there.  And to blog every day, for a week.  Oh hell…

Zumba for the Soul, week 5

Are we in week 5 already?  (I suspect we’re in week 6 already, actually.  Late, late, for a very important date!)

Aaaand the Zumba tasks for this week, assigned by Ms. Grout:

a) make a hat out of newspaper.

Ehhhhh.  MORE ORIGAMI?  Can I just cut a circle out of the middle, plonk it on my head and call it a sunhat?

b) then, to write 500 words.  About someone you hate.

Yuck, that’s not a nice task.  Must I?  Well, I suppose it need never see the light of day.

c) Plan a beach holiday, make cocktails for it, get straw hats for the sun.

But hey?  With my newspaper-with-a-hole cut out, I’ve got the sunhat all ready!  (The boozin’ bit I’ve got down.  I can do that all right.)

Alternate bookcover 06/02/2018 b): an alternate to the alternate!

Or here’s a slightly different version.  Better with a grey background? Anyway, it’s another alternate bookcover for ‘Wolves In Leather‘, using the same Canva element.  And monochrome is still pretty.  Like it?  Let me know in the comments!

Looka that moon!  Arooo!  Pretty, right?
