I blame supply chain issues too. We drink about 3 gallons a week. The new batch of milk is good until December 1. So I am hopeful. Although I just learned one of the people on pudding consumption duty is no longer feeling love for pudding. Sigh. Next time it’s Swedish oatmeal pancakes and a bunch of bread (for the freezer), I guess.
In the meantime — go to the head of the class and yell “Uno!”
Or did I already miss that round? Sorry. I was making ice cream, fudge sauce, and whipped cream for the party. And pudding. LOTS of pudding (sadly the last is true. Milk from the grocery store does not seem to be lasting well. So twice – in three weeks – I’ve had to change 12 cups of milk into LOTS of pudding. And I don’t like pudding. Fortunately, others in the house do. And I have gotten adept at double-wielding whisks (which is probably more useful than double-wielding lightsabers. At least where I live). So I’ve got chocolate pudding and butterscotch pudding if anyone wants some).
I was always partial to “Requiem for Methuselah” (in original Trek)
I liked the year (2017?) where someone won a prize proving that cats are both a solid and a liquid. It lightened our science time. Will have to check this out too even though the teacher (me) is now “retired” (my second student is now in college. K-12 secular homeschooler x2 and SOOOOO happy to be done (but also happy to have done it)).
Nicodemus eats biscuits (the American, Southern kind) – and is insistent on having a taste (with or without butter). He will also eat the occasional pancake or waffle nibble. He prefers the soft insides (so I guess, no crusts on his sandwiches?).
I want this on a t-shirt. :-)
I am waiting for the chocolate pudding to cool for my husband’s chocolate cream pie so it can go in the fridge for tomorrow (still have to make the pie shell and the whipped cream — but that’s a tomorrow project). AND he gets a funky tie (plus a couple more finds from the local thrift store). But no flamingos.
I think (and someone will correct if I am wrong) but Goldie’s eyes are “green” and Burt’s are “yellow” (at least in this strip and as shown by my monitor). Yes, so MANY caveats (catveats?). :-)
Or maybe a Sphynx if he’s feeling really motivated?
Elvis must be channeling Nicodemus today. Although Nicodemus has been doing this since about 6 months. We took him to a pet allergist (recommended by our vet). It cost lots of money and they couldn’t figure anything out. They offered prednisone (to alleviate the symptoms of whatever was going on) but mentioned the long term increased risk for diabetes. Having just gone through that with the predecessor my final question was — aside from looking awful – is there a downside?
So – sometimes he looks awful. Sometimes he’s just cat-sculpting. Sometimes all the fur is where it should be. It ebbs and flows (and seems to be seasonal). Sometimes it really kicks in (he probably picks up on our stress as well). When it gets bad, he has to put on “jammies” (baby clothes that I still had knocking around). He’s not amused. I’ve also tried oatmeal “baths” and sponge baths during warmer months.
One vet commented that all the fur chewing flosses his teeth. Admittedly, his teeth ARE in good shape. And he doesn’t seem to ingest it — although there’s a lot of it on the floor.
At the moment he’s bad but if you ask — do you want/need your jammies? He immediately stops the chewing/licking. So — if nothing else, he’s learned a new word.
