I did it! I did it! I did it!

Doods! Today is my official 18th birthday!

The Woman admits, she didn't think I would see my 17th, but then the stabby lady fixed stuff, and now she says she won't be surprised if I'm still here for my 19th.

But the important thing...


I hope there are a few local elections before the Big One in 2020. Just so I have some experience. That's important when facing big decisions.

But today my biggest decision: which to eat first, the real live fresh dead shrimp or the real live fresh dead cow. 'Cause I'm totally getting both! The Woman said so!

The One Where The Woman Whines Because She Can't Sleep

At 1:30 this morning, my fountain stopped fountaining. So I did what any self-respecting cat would do: I walked up and down the hallway, calling for someone with thumbs to get up and fix it.

Well, I know the Woman heard me because there were WORDS said, but she didn't get up. No, she rolled over as if going back to sleep were an option, so I sat by the door and told her I needed help.

She finally caved at 4:30 this morning, but instead of going to my fountain to make it fountain again, she went into the kitchen to open a can for me. Well, I'm intelligent enough to realize that one does not refuse 4:30 am offerings, though it meant that my fountain would sit there, woefully not fountaining.

She went back to bed and tried to sleep, but the guilt of not meeting all of my needs weighed on her, and all she could do was toss and turn. There was grumbling about that because she has a doctor's appointment this morning (no worries, she's not sick; this is just the annual presenting of herself to prove she's still alive) and apparently one must be awake for this. The Man will drive her, so I'm not really sure what the issue is.

Really, I think she just likes to complain.

After the Man got up, he fixed the fountain so it is now fountaining again, so all is well. And I bet the Woman sleeps really well tonight.

June 01, 2019


Yep, this is it! JUNE! Now, we usually celebrate my birthday on June 20, but the truth is no one is sure exactly what day I was born on, just that it was sometime in June. So this year, because it's my 18th, I'm declaring the entire month to be Max's Birthday!

I think today's celebratory activity will be watching the last 3 episodes of Good Omens. Doods...it's seriously freaking good. And not just because the 10th Doctor is playing the demon Crawley. The Woman and I read the book again last week to refresh it in our heads, and while the series veers a teeny bit from it, it's still done the way books-to-series should be done.

Yes, we really do read together. Lots of times it's just before bedtime, on her Kindle. I enjoy it, except when she gets ahead of me and turns the page before I can finish it. She's kinda rude that way.

I'm not sure what else I'll do this month, but doods...I made it to June, so we've decided that I am officially EIGHTEEN.
