Okay, so today the people put pants on--REAL PANTS--and left the house, saying they were going shopping for toys.
Now, the Younger Human doesn't play with toys.
The people don't play with toys.
So clearly, they were buying cat toys. I am a cat; I occasionally hunt the toys in the house to kill them.
When they go shopping they're usually gone for a long time, so I went into the room with the big comfy bed and jumped up there to take a long nap, and I admit, I was a little excited. New toys! It's been a while since I've had a toy I wanted to kill, so that was something to look forward to.
But then they came home, and what did they have?
A whole lot of nothing.
They walked in empty handed.
At first I thought they'd just struck out and couldn't find anything Max-worthy, but then the Woman left her phone where I could see it and LOOK AT THIS

There are a lot of toys there but not one damned cat toy.
So when the Woman sat down I jumped in her lap and was going to tell her exactly what I thought about it but then she went and said, "Lots of toys, right, Big Guy? And you bought most of them."
Well dammit, now I can't even be mad.
Not even a tiny bit.

And really, doods, you
bought these toys: it took 2 trips, filling up the back of the HHR both times. I save most of my money from my books every year to buy things for Toys for Tots at Christmas and some random cat thingies for cats that need cat thingies, but this is the Toys Haul.
When you bought copies of my books, you were also buying toys for sticky people who might not get much for the holidays.
It would have been nice if they'd SAID this is what they were doing instead of getting me all excited about waking up to a new thing to kill, but it's cool. Now I feel all warm and tingly, and it's not much longer until Christmas, and Santa will hook me up. The Woman assures me that she made sure he knows I would like a new nip banana and some real live fresh dead shrimp, and that's all I really want or need.
Thanks, guys. I don't always get a real feel for how many books I sell or where the money goes, but seeing this?
I freaking have warm fuzzies right now.
Now, pet my head and tell me I'm pretty. I feel pretty tonight.
