Hey, sailors

Fluffly McHomosexual

The woman who sits next to me was working in another office today, so I visited the pussoes. None of the original bunch is left, except for the other little mama. She was pregnant longer than any cat the shelter guy had ever heard of. Me too. I thought maybe the kittens had died and she was resorbing them (this can happen, I think. Nature can be so…ew). But, no. Just as he was about to haul her to the vet, out popped four of the healthiest fat furballs you ever did see. No two alike, so she’s no better than she should be.

While I was chatting with the Kitteh Man, a nice young gay couple came in cat shopping. I thought to myself, “I wonder which cat they’ll choose…NOT!

Yup. Fluffy McHomosexual here is no longer a stray. Well. He’s a good cat and I’m sure the nice gentlemen will make him a lovely home. Plus, they were eyeballing a certain kitten and a tuxedo tom and made inquiries about taking all three. So, hooray for soft-hearted cat-adopting persons of the same sex!

Sweasel.com is still blocked by Websense. I’ve sent another “I’m not that tasteless, pretty please” request. Frankly, the internet is in the summer doldrums anyhow (have you noticed?) and ain’t nothing to blog about. I’ll just…catblog or photoblog to show willing until I get this straightened out. And if I can’t work it out this week, I’ll see about setting up a mirror or something.

Good think I never monetized this sucker, or I’d be pissed.

What do you want to bet his name ends up being “Mister” something?

gay means wut?

This guy, too. I was surprised they were interested in the third cat; he was kind of burly and energetic. Seemed like more of an outside cat. (Fluffypants there is declawed, poor bastard).

Yeah. Mister Fluffypants or Mister Fabulous. Or named after one of the castmembers of Cats. I used to go to school with this kid whose cat was called Rum Tum Tugger. I haven’t bothered to find out, but I’m convinced that he’s either a raging queen or a tranny by now.

Set up a mirror! Set up a mirror!?!

Surely, the mustelid code demands nothing less than we find where ‘websense’ lives and burn their steaming palace of neo-fascism to the ground?

Umm… reckon you’re banned forever, now?

May I remind you, Uncle B, of the old algebraic formula

getting my ass fired right now = HUGE future burden on YOUR finances.

Oh, and…holy SHIT, PnB!

Still not blocked @my work, Stoaty … If they do, I’ll have to quit retire cry.

I can still see your site at work, Weas, and we use websense…but the blocks get turned on and off. The entire wordpress.com domain was blocked for me for a while.

Hey, better than any of the pictures from the Folsom Street Fair. After seeing those, it almost makes you think the Spartans had the right idea…


Comment from Lemur King

pnb – with family all around, I can’t really scope that out (based on the startled e-gasps around), but I can later. The Folsom Street Fair posters were disturbing as hell.

Sorry to hear your smutty site got lojacked, weas. All that gay pussy(cat) stuff will do it. If the cat likes vacuum cleaners that’s another sign as to which one is, uhm, you know…

Aaaaand I expect a visit to the drains of Akismet any second now.

I’ll try to keep more in touch, hard on the road. Jonesin’ real bad for my blog fix, but today I found some satisfaction. I’ll be around.

LK, it was family safe. Just some fruity guy in high heels. Creep factor very high.
Er…Folsom Street posters? Did you see the actual pictures from the fair besides the posters? Pornographic in the nastiest way.

Hey Sweasel – I stumbled upon this site:

http://w2.eff.org/bloggers/

Not sure if there’s anything on it that might help you with this troublesome blockage of late, but it might be worth perusing.

I hadn’t thought of EFF, Jill.

Of course, I support the right of employers to filter any damn thing they want from a work connection. It’s just the arbitrariness of this that is so off-pissing.

Since I have no work at the moment, I’m all good, at least for searching the web all damn day trying to find a 3 week gig. Fucking ridiculous!

Oh! I just got email from Websense! I’ve been reclassified as Social Networking and Personal Sites (okay, not quite…but that’s the closest thing to “moronblog” I could find on their list). I don’t know if that means I’m unblocked from work — I’m at home. I had to take Charlotte for her follow-up appointment and I’ve been in no hurry to get into work.

Their wasn’t a category for “not in your database any more.”

Hopefully, that means good news.

How has the Charlotte been? How long was she on pain meds?

That is Fluffy McHomosexual. It’s a boy. A gay couple adopted him.
But yes. Yes he is.

You aren’t blocked by UK government department internet access – and I thought they blocked everything and anything they possibly could.

So this ‘websense’ is one odd piece of software…

(Your Ladyship: please feel free to delete this if you’d like.)

I’m sorry to be spamming my favorite blogs, but as usual, I need some advice.

Does anyone here have experience or knowledge about insulin pumps (either personally or knowing someone with a pump)? I’ve decided to go on the pump, and need to do a lot of research before I meet my endocrinologist on August 6. Please e-mail me (my name at yahoo dot com). I have some questions to ask.

Thanks!

Eat your heart out Matt Drudge! Here’s an exclusive – Weasel has been struck by lightning.

Well, not The Weasel as such, but the street where she lives, so she sends her apologies (by mobile phone, no less!) for absence and says she’ll be back whenever they restore her cable connection.

OK, I’ve brought the worm pies and a bottle of vodka, who’s got a good party tape…?

Muslihoon, I have a friend with a pump. I shot him your email address. He isn’t the best guy at communicating, especially with strangers, so he may not send you anything.

But I know he abuses his like there is no tomorrow. I bake stuff for him with real sugar and bad things like that and he chows down. When he starts to feel bad (I guess) he uses the pump. And continues eating. So he’s not a responsible diabetic by any means. :) But he might be able to give some insight into how they work, what kind of trouble they are, etc.

tape

Surely you mean “CD”, right?

Thanks, nicole! I really appreciate it.

I wasn’t planning on getting a pump, but today I visited my Dr. (a really good guy) and he mentioned that the stuff I should do for my current regimen, I’d have to do for a pump, so why not stress about the same things but get better control? He made a very good point.

I made a discovery recently. For diabetics (type 1 anyway), fake sugar is not worth it. Most fake sugars are still actual sugars. They just break down more slowly, but they do affect blood sugar in the long run. Better to simply do away with the fake stuff and use the real stuff and deal with it. It’s healthier, actually.

And from a diabetic, thanks for baking such stuff. It’s nice to enjoy real, normal stuff.

OFF TOPIC (sorry but figured this oughtta be in comments rather than just in an e-mail)
Regular reader (think I’ve only commented twice though) of you and Ace’s sites and figured you might be a person to ask since you seem to do lots o’ drawring. I’m starting out making a general-purpose webpage for my family and blog, it will be tehhenrys.net (unless I can come up with a better name, nothing there yet) and was wondering if you could throw some names of some good but cheap graphics editing programs I could use for designing the interface, buttons, and a bit of animation for it. The books I’ve read suggest Photoshop of course, but it looks mighty pricey. Just looking for a quick suggestion from an apparent pro.

Sorry in advance if this is a bit out of left-field from your standard comments. Love the site! Your black and white style is very interesting.

Steve, there is no off-topic at sweasel.com. There are only questions I’m afraid to answer in public for fear someone will know the real answer and blow my cover.

I am a pro! I also draw. There’s a program called the GIMP that is open source and famously does everything Photoshop will. I’ve tried it and got frustrated…mostly because once you learn to do a thing in one program, it’s a pain in the ass trying to learn it in a different program.

However! Many products (scanners, digital cameras) come with a cut down version of Photoshop called Elements. For all I know, you can buy Photoshop Elements stand-alone, too. It’ll do maybe 80% of what Photoshop will do — which is probably exactly the 80% you need.

See if you or someone you love hasn’t already got this lying around.

pnb – yeah, I saw posters advertising the “event”. I believe you could call it classy, as in professionally done, but as soon as they broke out into the fetishist stuff, it got weird. I never saw pictures from the event and don’t really intend to. I once rented “Cruising” with Al Pacino, because who *doesn’t* like
Al Pacino? Had no idea what it was about and quickly decided that it wasn’t for me.

See the entry “DotWK” for a picture of the poster I was thinking of and click on it for the slightly larger version.


Comment from Muslihoon
Time: July 23, 2008, 8:03 pm

Oh, dear. Oh, deary deary dear.

With a picture like that, is it any surprise that gays don’t have more friends among Christianists?

Maybe if gays stopped publicly mocking our religion, we’d get along better!

(rant off)


Comment from porknbean
Time: July 23, 2008, 8:13 pm

LK, I’ve seen that poster. But classy? No. See, the big brave fruity freaks can poke fun at Christians, since they are sooo evil, but you will never see them mocking Mohammed and his many concubines and child bride…because..

1. The little faux men in the mean ole leather gear are ultimately sissies with a need for anal reconstructive surgery, antibiotics for the infections, cocktails for their malfunctioning immune systems, creams for the itching and burning, and attention, attention, attention *stamps pink little foots*. The narcissism overshadows their nihilism and they would prefer to keep their heads.

2. Mohammed and his follower’s proclivities are right up their alley.

zombietime.com has all of the disgustingness of Soddom and Gommorrah on full display. Oh…and some ‘couples’ brought their small children.

3. If you offend Christians, they’ll pray for you. (The horror!) If you offend Muslims, they’ll behead you.

Of course, no one mocks Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism (Freddie Mercury was a Zoroastrian, BTW), or Satanism.


Comment from S. Weasel
Time: July 23, 2008, 8:24 pm

Wait, I mock Satanism. And Paganism. I mean, I mock the lot, but some of them strike me as sillier than others.

Uh oh. The thunder is gathering again…

Steve in Tucson: Also check eBay for Photoshop Elements — You can frequently get the “last” version (whatever version was before the latest update) for a little bit of nothing. I did that a couple of years ago. I also got MS Digital Image (I think that’s the name), older version, same way & like it a lot.

Somehow it seems an apt match, gays and cats.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
