City On Fire

Night Stalking

Stepped out of the shower last night, and went to lock up the house before going to bed.  When I got to the back door, I knew something was wrong.  We've been leaving it open, due to the heat, to help air the place out, blocking it with a screen propped in front of it.  Well, the screen was slightly ajar...and then I noticed that I couldn't see the cats anywhere. 

A quick check confirmed: they must have gone outside.  Now, my cats don't go outside, mostly because Di is allergic to flea bites, and I don't want them bringing them in...so this was both annoying and ungroovy.  What followed was a bunch of trekking around in the dark, trying to find and recapture these two furry idiots.

Yeah, that was fun.  Found Socrates fairly quickly; he's the bigger weenie, so he hadn't gone far, just around the side and sat down, apparently.  Sappho, though, she avoided us for a while, and once we found her, didn't want to be caught.  Eventually, though, we got them inside.

Yes, this is the exciting life I lead.  *rolls eyes*

(no subject)

A cop on the beat sees a drunk stumbling back and forth with a key in his hand. The cop approaches him and asks "Can I help you sir?"
"Yessh! Ssssomebody ssstole my carrr!" the man replies.
The cop asks "Where was your car the last time you saw it?"
"It wasss on the end of thisshh key" the man replies.
About that time the cop looks down and sees the man's penis is hanging out of his fly for all the world to see.
He asks the man "Sir, are you aware that you are exposing yourself?"
Momentarily confused, the drunk looks down at his crotch and without missing a beat, blurts out, "I'll be damned! My girlfriend's gone, too!!!!!"

You know, when you are an artist, you never really know what to expect when someone sees the work you've done for them. It might be good, it might be bad.  It might be reserved, or it might be exuberant.

And then...well, there's reactions like this that make your whole week...

archmage: (links to the sample of the new website he's been designing for duchess_webb)
duchess_webb: *MOUTH DROPS*
duchess_webb: *has mental orgasm*
duchess_webb: .....fuck.....
archmage: Well, that's either really good or really bad.
duchess_webb: Oh... my.... I need to change my undies now.....
duchess_webb: OH man.... I am squealing like crazy over here
archmage: hee hee
archmage: well, I'm never unhappy to make a woman squeal.  ;)

Now, THAT'S a reaction that makes it all worth while.
