For the most part I have been pleased with the effectiveness of the Feline Alarm Clock. There are, however, significant improvements needed to make this product user friendly. For instance, there are several alarm options: "horking up a hairball", "tummy trampoline", "weight on a full bladder", "purring in your ear", "licking your face", "chewing on your fingers", etc. If you have two of these alarms, you can also get "cat fight on your chest". However, there is no option to choose which one you'll be awakened by - it's entirely random. The alarm cannot keep accurate time. Sometimes it goes off too late, but more often it goes off too early and thereby cutting in to a REM cycle. There is a tendency for the alarm to sometimes fail entirely even though there has been no interruption in the power supply. Many a morning I have awoken to find that the alarm has actually left the room entirely - what's that about?

I have to admit that despite its serious shortcomings, I am loathe to return my two versions of this product. Despite the lack of reliability, I find its other features (lap warmer, cuddler, familiar, etc) to be well worth the investment.

In summation, I would love this alarm clock if I could set it to a consistent time and option. Until then, you will definitely need at least one back up.

Yesterday morning, on his birthday, I had a dream about a very good friend and his girlfriend getting married.  (No, it wasn't [ profile] buz, it was [ profile] tresdon )  They wore matching tan shorts, green shirts, he had loafers and she wore a cute little pair of flats.  This was important for some reason.  They looked very cute.


This morning I had a dream that I was pointing my camera at a friend to take a picture and when I looked through the viewfinder I saw a wasp. I realized the wasp was inside the lens and remarked upon it to my friend, asking how the hell could a wasp get into my lens?  She asked if I had swapped the lens since the last time I used it and I responded that I hadn't.

While still puzzling over this some random man came by and snatched the camera out of my hands.  I chased after him yelling that I needed my data card.  He pulled the lens off the camera and yanked the stuffing (yes really) and wasp out of the lens.  I think the wasp flew away.  He tossed my data card on the ground where I picked it up.

He handed me the body of the camera back, smiled and walked off with my mutilated lens.  I remembered I had another identical lens so I put it on my camera.  I went to the camera store where I asked how it was possible for a wasp to get inside the lens.  They asked me if I had swapped the lens.  O_o  No I had not.  They had no answers.

Somebody explain that one please.  Oy vey.

"You know, the root of the word Miller is a Greek word. Miller come from the Greek word "milo," which is mean "apple," so there you go. As many of you know, our name, Portokalos, is come from the Greek word "portokali," which mean "orange." So, okay? Here tonight, we have, ah, apple and orange. We all different, but in the end, we all fruit."

Yes, I wish I could send you our at least half of our precipitation.

Seattle = the New San Francisco

San Francisco = the New Los Angeles

Los Angeles = the New...  ???  Certainly not Puerto Vallarta.

Welcome to Climate Change.  :-p

Is this not the perfect property for a Goth commune?  Would need a new paint job of course.

Been on the market in my 'hood for a while now.  Can't have anything to do with the color I'm sure.  And no, there was no digital enhancement here.  It really is that color.


There, that's better.

Came across this today.  Made me laugh.  Lots.

Well, I've been saying I'm not really Goth because I honestly didn't know what that meant.  I was informed that anyone who wears so much black, carries an Undead Doll around as a lucky charm and does Netflix searches for vampire movies is most def Goth.  The implication:  "who the hell did I think I was kidding?"  :-p

Upon review I decided that the only real criteria I should worry about is whether or not I feel Goth suits me.  I then decided that it does.

So there you go, [ profile] buz .  I am Goth.

For a little added entertainment value, I took a test...

Your result for The GOTH Test ...
