Cats Who Rule The Roost

Cats bullying for their own way? No, never.

Finding A Balance

My favorite line from Helen: “I get enough exercise just pushing my luck.” 

Yesterday I took a walk (helps my lung capacity) so I could practice swinging my arms (helps my spine alignment) and realized how weird that looked. Just to add to the weirdness, I tried walking and turning my head alternating left and right. That’s incredibly difficult for me, perhaps not for you, and I had to lie down in the middle of the street just to calm myself. This is the rhythm of my speech after I read a column from Margaret and Helen.

Mmm, pie.


And exercise.

The Distillery Cat

Cats are popping up everywhere! Who knew they had such important roles, such as this one. Mice, beware.

Missing In Action

Sometimes we miss events – important events – for no good reason. For instance, what possible reason could I have had to miss this one?  A cat festival!

Did you read any of the comments sent to Anita? I started wondering about the men, the gamers who send those comments. Why hasn’t a study been done of them? It seems really important to understand what drives them, what they learned as children that enables them to act out this way. I think we have to understand the perpetrators.

Here is a how Emma Sulkowicz, an art student at Columbia University, is addressing the issue violence against women. Quite courageously with her protest-turned-performance-art-turned-thesis.

First Caller

I offered my women scientist Lego set to the first caller. That’s the way the say it on the radio, but since we at Bad Girl Chats are in the business of the written word rather than spoken word, a postcard made more sense. Congratulations, Carol A! You are our first caller and your grandaughter’s Lego set is making its way slowly to your door. (I have to wrap it and bring it to the post office and I’m still hoping to find one of the plastic hairpieces that seems to have been misplaced…they are so so small, but there are other wigs in the set, or you can as my assistant just did, put a beaker on the doll’s head instead of hair!!) Your patience will be rewarded.
