Friday Morning Mishmash with Cartoons

After catnapping much of yesterday and sleeping (with Alex snuggled beside me) almost nine hours last night, I should be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning. Well, I ain’t! I am yawning and my brain feels like it is having a lie-down. That doesn’t make sense to me.

My slumbering while sitting here at the computer is also frustrating. There are several items that I want to comment upon in today’s Friday Mishmash. However, I can’t get my brain in gear enough to do so. Even these two short paragraphs that I’ve just written were created while my mind feels numb—and I hope my words make sense.

Still, I want to post something! Thus, I am going to share some of videos that I have been emailed and have been meaning to include in the Too Bad Its Monday jokes but haven’t because I’ve had so many other funnies to post.

So…. For your enjoyment and, hope fully, laughter, here are two of the vids. (I can nap here at my desk while Blogger uploads them).

The first video, which was sent to me under the title Wake-Up, has been making the rounds for a while. Still, the cartoon is so cat-like—and Alex-like—that I really want to share it just in case you’ve not encounter it. Enjoy!

The second is also a cartoon, The Knack, and is dedicated to all of the engineers and geeks in the world. (It really does remind me of my oldest son). Enjoy.

Now, when Alex returns from his morning catting around outside, I (and probably he) are going back to bed for another catnap.

  2. Very funny. BTW, I have just posted some cat pics you might like to see. Also, if you ever see anything on my site that you like, go ahead and take it. YOU don't have to ask or even give me link-back credit.

  7. OK I have had the occasion to try and sleep through a cat that decided I needed to pay attention to them. I can so identify. If it is not anoying enough to get you up, then they get even more anoying until you do get up. As to the knack... I think I have a little of that myself but actually that is so perfect for my Brother. I might just need the BIL to look at that. He has two brothers in law that are engineers. I know he would love it.

  8. Meow!

    Love that video.

    Maybe if you could get some fresh air you would not feel so sleepy brained.

    Hope you feel better soon :)

  9. "The Knack" is hilarious. I must say I envy those with mechanical aptitude. I'm "gifted" with mechanical ineptitude.

  10. Great cartoons. Cartoon #1 is why we shut the bedroom door with Miss Kitty on the other side.

    I hope that you are feeling better soon - and if not, I hope you play like a cat with your doctor and irritate him until he PAYS ATTENTION TO YOU!

  11. Love the videos, the first one certainly captures the early morning call cat style!

  12. Funny videos.

    Please take care of yourself. Sounds like you really need some good rest. You've probably not been sleeping soundly because of low oxygen levels for so long. Listen to your body.

  13. Nick, are you eating ok? I'm worried...has anyone mentioned keeping a journal of what you eat/do during the day & taking it to your doctor? Could be something in your diet as well... pleast mention this.

    OR...it could be over-tired. Could be too much sleep (that makes me tired all day)...but seriously something to think about.

  14. Rev Saint, I like both of those videos and appreciate your sharing them. You may want to seriously consider the suggestions about fresh air and your nutrition. As we grow older, both become more and more important. I praying for you, my brother!

  15. AKELAMALU: I’m happy that you enjoyed the videos and that I finally found the opportunity to post them.

    MONDAY MORNING POWER: Thank you, Mel. I clicked over to your blog and saw the lol cats. You made a nice selection.

    MISSISSIPPI SONGBIRD: (Oh how I love typing”Mississippi!”) Thank you. I hope I have some energy for the rest of the weekend.

    ANDI: Thank you. I really think that the cat is like most cats and that we may all know someone with “the Knack.”

  16. MIKE: Thank you. I have heard Alex snore only a couple of times and that was when he was curled next to me. I can feel and hear his purring more than I can his snoring.

    BARMAN: Yep, awakening humans seems to be a feline skill that all cats share. Let me know what the BIL thinks of “The Knack.”

    PINK: Thanks. I think you are on to something. The last two times I was out of doors were for trips to the VA hospital and the weather was cold, windy, and very wet. I was out only for the trips. I think I do need some fresh air, not the least because this 100+ year old house has lots of mold in the basement and I am very allergic to mold.

  17. Perhaps your need to catnap is something you picked up from Alex. Or, maybe, it comes along with being 62.

  18. SAN: I, too, am lacking in mechanical skills, although I do sometimes get done what must be done by persistent bumbling around.

    CAROL: I never thought of shutting Alex out of the bedroom. Hmmmm. Things may be looking up soon from the medical standpoint. As of today—March 1st—I have Medicare and am not limited to VA care.

    BTW, according to the VA “rules” I am only allowed to see my VA primary care person once every six months unless I have an “emergency” and then I’m supposed to go to the VA hospital’s emergency room.

    PAULINE: Thank you. I suppose as I become more of a “cat person” I am seeing the truth in all of those fables about cats—like “curiosity killed the cat” which has almost come true for Alex more than once.

  19. SQUIRL: Thanks. You know, I really am not very far into the so-called “oxygen therapy” and I believe that there is a lot for me yet to learn. For example, the adding moisture to the oxygen has really helped to reduce my nose bleeding.

    TUG: You ask some good questions, Tug. I am eating better than I was. My biggest problem is standing at the stove cooking: my leg and then my back hurt to the point I can’t stand. So just about everything I cook is microwaved. I have kept a computerized journal of my food consumption for years as a means of weight control. I may review that and see what I’m lacking. As I wrote to Carol above, I am only allowed to see my VA primary care person once every six months. I have another idea about nutrition that I am checking out now. If it’s feasible, I blog about it.

  20. AZSONOFAGUN: Older, Rex? Who, me? Thank you for the advice, I believe you are right; and for the prayers, I am greatly in need of divine intervention.

    THE LONE BEADER: The cat cartoon is so cattish.

    ANGUS: I suppose either could be the case.

  21. That mold that you mentioned really worries me too...that stuff can do all kinds of things, and can be deadly. Is there anything that can be done about it?

    ReplyDelete
  22. TUG: Thank you for your concern.

    The best thing I know of to get rid of mold is bleach. The mold is in the basement, a place I seldom go because the steps are so steep. From what I understand, my biggest concern should be that the mold has gotten into the heating ducts and thus into the air I breath.

    Since I no longer own my house nor have the money I once had, I suppose any action needs to be taken by the young man who bought the house after the foreclosure.

    Now, since it is almost 50 F outside and the sun is shining, I am going out to get some fresh air!
