Human Behavior

 

Every time we have a get together with more than just a couple people, the cats hide out in the bedroom. Makes perfect sense, I guess. Cats are more introverted seeming and want to keep to themselves. I can relate a little. But once in a while they’ll come out of hiding to socialize. I don’t get cat behavior. They want what they want, when they want it.

However, on the topic of Thanksgiving, we recently took a spur of the moment trip to see Jim Jeffries perform at some casino in Palm Desert. It was well worth the trip because he is friggin’ hilarious. One of his bits at the show was to talk about Thanksgiving and the concept of “freedom”. Being an Australian, he started polling some Americans about the holiday. And what he learned was that we get to eat turkey, pumpkin pie, and watch football. Hah. As if we can’t do any of those things the rest of the year if we wanted to. That’s what freedom means.

Attempt number 2 at drawing my stories instead of taking photos. One thing I learned from a comic artist online is that he doesn’t ever draw or redraw. He had a bunch of pre-made pieces which he just assembled and re-assembled. Why work hard when you can work smart. But either way…

Here is a (sad) truth about me. I have written a lot of songs about my cats. Anytime I say “baby” or “Jesus,” I actually mean “kitty.” Here’s an example.

A Carlton’s Way comic crossover!

Sometimes I see him. Sometimes I don’t.
Carlton the cat is a kitty that won’t
Stop ’til he drops.

So, kiddies watch out, look out below
Here comes Carlton, now on with the show!

So, last night we tried to continue our Battlestar Galactica viewing (backstory, Diana has never seen it before and it’s about gosh darn time she get to it), but unfortunately it has vanished from Netflix. What the heck are we supposed to do now?

Naked is the New Black

 

I don’t know how it happened, but Diana and I spent 8 hours watching Naked & Afraid, which, apparently, has been on for 3 seasons. THREE SEASONS! How’d that happen? And after doing some quick research, the contestants don’t win any prizes. Well, I guess they can win the prize of malaria or some other tropic disease. Yikes!

But, watching the show really puts into perspective how weak we are compared to animals the wild. Sure we can do pretty well, if we’re part of a society or team, but if you’re alone, then you’re basically doomed. As we like to say in Dungeons & Dragons: “Never spilt the party.”

What’s better to bring with you besides a machete or axe: a fire starting kit or a pot?
