Hail to thee, my fellow consumers of the Holy Meal on this day!!

Happy Friday!

Aye, this be a happy Friday. Yesterday not so much - Friday thirteenth came on Thursday this month. That's the worst.

It wasn't really, but Saturday is shaping up better.

You know that way that you sit in a meeting eyeing up someone's face, looking for the correct angle to punch them from? That was Friday.

Most of my meetings are on line. The disadvantage is I can't do that "how to punch them" thing. The advantage is that I can mute my line and scream at them. Which I do far more frequently than my co-workers would prefer.

This was a guy who was basically abusing a family member and thought he was allowed to, and furthermore what was I going to do about it?

Call the cops. That's what I did. I know our local officers. I tell them there is shit floating in my view, they will take a look. If this prick is lucky he'll get a guy. If not, a female cop is going to investigate him abusing a female relative. There is less tolerance of bullshit when that happens.

Well I hope everyone's Friday gets better.

Would it help to change it to "Happy Friday evening"? Most people have come home from the working week by then.

My Friday this week will start around 6AM with 9 litter boxes, 7 water bowls, and 12 food bowls (Mrs.T does the other 2 food bowls). At least once round the yard with the dog. Shower and off to work (45 minute drive) at primary job for the standard 8 hours. Then off to secondary job for 4.5 more hours. Then 45 minutes back home for a repeat of the litter boxes and water bowls from the morning, along with at least a couple of medications (eye goop for one cat, eye/nose drops for another, possibly some subcutaneous fluids and etc.). Then it's time for a hearty dinner of a couple of slices of cheese. Practice guitar for a bit, sniff the internets for another bit, and before you know it, it's 2AM and time for bed again, so I can be all rested up to start over again at 6AM on Saturday.

My life is a joke.

Tomorrow will be four hours in a secure psychiatric ward, followed by four hours of phone duty in the office, followed by playing a theatre gig for which I have had one rehearsal and only know half the music.

Usual sort of Friday, then.

I concede this thread may have been unwisely thought out.

Oh well.

Hey I just cottoned on to two things:

1) E.T., you have 14 cats?!

We usef to have a kitty. She now chases noodley appendages at the beer volcano.

2) You both play guitar? Awesome!

My first mate plays guitar and I took up the ukulele 6 months ago.

Actually, we currently have 13 cats and a dog. We have been actively rescuing for nearly 25 years. At our zenith, when we were running a local nonprofit no-kill group, we had 43 cats. We are currently downsizing by attrition.

I've been playing guitar for something like 47 years. Roy plays bass and drums (or maybe it's drums and bass). He's far more active than I am.

I do own a couple of guitars, and I try to play them, but there have been lawyers' letters and so on to make me stop. Enthusiastic, but not so good. I have played drums for 32 years(ish), been playing double bass for 21 years.

I believe the good Cardinal Fang is a ukuleleist?
