Asti’s Back!!!

That is all.

In Case You Missed It

Here’s all the stuff that we posted this week.

Our Lives This Week

[stextbox id=”asti2″ caption=”Asti” collapsing=”true”]WELL HELLO AGAIN! DID YOU MISS ME? HUH HUH HUH????

I must say, it’s been a roller coaster these past two weeks. My parents were over and we spent everyday harassing London, and then they left and I sort of hibernated for two days, and now suddenly it’s dissertation, dissertation, dissertation. It’s due at the end of this month, and really I should have it done by now, but being the perfectionist I am I often find myself going back to rewrite sections again and again. It’s okay though! I’m finally at a happy point with all the sections I’ve already written. I just need to work on my Discussion and Conclusion and I’m DONE! I’m thinking we might have to have a little celebration (giveaway?) at the end of the month because such things deserve to be celebrated. Yes? No?

Anyways, that’s it from me. Short and sweet and something.[/stextbox]

[stextbox id=”kelley2″ caption=”Kelley” collapsing=”true”]You see, there’s this cat that lives in my neighborhood. Well, to be more correct, there are many cats that live in my neighborhood, most of them feral. I always say hello and give them the option for snuggles when I see them or pass by them, but they always slink away from the humans. This one, though… Well, he talked to me, and made that adorable little lip smacking thing kitties do when they’re hungry, so… I gave him some snacks! And then the next day when I got home from work, he was back, asking for more. Soooo, I gave him some more snacks! Because clearly that was the thing to do, right?

And then the next thing I knew, I was buying a bag of cheap cat food for him (but, you know, not totally crappy. I made sure to get the healthy kind!) and putting it in a special bowl under the bushes. My husband keeps telling me not to feed him every day so he doesn’t get dependent on us, but it’s hard for me to resist. He sits out there every day, waiting for me when I get out of my car and he follows me to my door! So now, I get home and I have a cat whining for food from both inside the house AND outside the door. What am I doing? I don’t know. (No, there are no pictures yet, but I should fix that, shouldn’t I?)[/stextbox]

Question of the Week

Sometimes Asti feels we should have a question down here, but she doesn’t quite know what that question should be. And being the silly person she is, when she sat here and thought about it and thought about it, only one question came to mind…

If Kelley, Leanne, and Asti had to battle to the death, who do you think would win??

Yes, of course that’s the question she comes up with.

So, how was your week?

  1. Oh, I wouldn’t be able to resist the little kitten either. We have a few cats around here I see from time to time, but I’m pretty sure they do belong to people (I only ever see them on nice days, never in the cold or when it’s super crappy out). But I’m never sure, and it always makes me nervous to think about them out there on their own.

    Thanks for including my link!

  2. I think if Kelley brought that new cat along, she might win. But Asti and Leanne might be able to take her if they fought together, and then turned on each other :P I’d like to see that fight tbh. (Not really – I love all of you too much and don’t want any hurts going on)

  3. My parents don’t have any pets, but there was a wild cat that decided to start hanging around outside their house. My dad started leaving out a bowl of food for it….fast forward a couple of years and he’s now feeding 6 different wild cats, who all line up every morning and patiently wait for him to arrive with the bag of food lol. You may have started something :)
