Greetings fellow non-asleepers,
In case you get tired (oh, don’t you wish!) of counting sheep or eels, silently chant this little poetic ditty to help soothe yourself … or recite it out loud if there is a special someone next to you blissfully schnoozing the dark hours away. Dammit… if only he/she didn’t look so cute…or so gainfully employed.
hours pad by

to lick another second off the clock.
Ouch. I guess misery does love company. And if you are indeed keeping company with me, slide your blurry peepers on over to the Laughing Squid and check out this German preschool building in the shape of a cat. (Make that a big ‘C’ Cat.)
Wicked cute! Nothing like being swallowed whole by a giant feline before your sixth birthday to get you ready for that corporate magnate position. It’s a kitty-eat-kiddie world out there. And then there is this:
Hercules, a liger (lion-tiger hybrid), is the world’s largest cat. He weighs in at 922 pounds. That’s the equivalent of about twenty-three preschoolers.
I live with two cats and I can assure you that were our respective sizes reversed, they would scoff us opposable-thumbers down their rough-tongued Fancy Feasting yaws without a kibble of remorse. Oh… you don't believe that they think about it? Well, you know those times when your pussums wakes up suddenly from a nap all "meow-meow-meow" and so you reach over with a reassuring pat: “Oh, did my wittle Mr. Whiskers have bad dweam..?”
Yep. In Kitty Dreamland, Mr. Whiskers was just feasting on your still warm innards. And that little cry thing? Soooo very disappointed that he didn’t get to sample your liver.
There is my own J.J. pondering, “Should the opportunity ever present itself, would I start chomping on her from the top down or the bottom up?” See how happy she looks? "Good Kitty!"
Now this here fellow stole a cat while he was drunk. He wants to return Django (Yes, the D is silent) because he's sober. Too bad the fellow doesn’t remember where exactly it was that he ..um.. ‘rescued’ little Django.
But what if Django doesn't want to be found? Maybe Django is tired of wearing a collar. Maybe he used this guy as his ticket to freedom... Huh? Huh? As an escape from bondage. Maybe even from something as terrible as this:
May the yawns be with you,
