updates, and a name for kitty

The Good News post has been updated and I'm still replying to all the emails about the school supplies thing - thank you everyone for your offers of assistance. The response has been wonderful and I just hope that I do end up getting the transport donated so I can pull this off.

And now for the moment you've all been waiting for. The naming of the kitty. The winner of the poll was Mathilda. But in a spur of the moment decision - and in a bizarre, unsettling moment in which we ALL (meaning me, the husband and kids) all AGREED on something, the name of the kitty is not any from the poll, but:

Master Shake.

Yes, she's named after this bastard:


I'm sure we'll end up referring to her as "kitty" more than anything, but Master Shake is her formal name, and what went on the forms at the vet tonight.

Here, shakey shakey shakey..........


This might show how culturally out of touch I am but since the kitty is female, wouldn't Mistress Shake be more appropriate? BTW she's just simply adorable! Meooow...

God help her.

My nieces and nephews named their female cat "Tom Servo" a decade ago, so there's precedent for the gender-bending.

And I'm mildly disappointed that you didn't go with Gaz, but that's because I'm an egotistical jerk.


One more thing: are you looking to expand your business?

/Master Shake kicks ass

Business is closed!

Much love for Master Shake of the feline and illustrated varieties!

You guys are weird.

Dear Shakey,

Whatever you do, stay away from M when she is NEAR A BLENDER!

That is all.

P.S. I hope that you like Zombie movies.

So all that time I spent stuffing the ballot box for Mathilda was a waste of time.
