Tit for Tat

Sabine knew that little Boris wasn’t the brightest bulb on the tree. For instance, she let it go for a while, but she finally acknowledged that his feeding instinct seemed to be off. Way off.

Maybe a map’s in order, Samantha H.?

    *TO-tally ded*

    (PS: HOW BIG IS MOMMY? She looks to be approx one of the Alps, in size)

    (collapses *ded* again)

  21. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh dear. I knew this was going to happen. *prepares bed for Res. Lifts her onto bed with fresh smelling sheets and warm blankies. Tucks her in with teddy bear. fluffs pillow, arranges sweet smelling flowers in a vase. Closes door*

    squeak, squeak, squeak.

  22. Awwww so cute! I would want to nom Sabine’s skooshy muzzle but it seems like Boris has it covered. :)

  23. My comments have disappeared into the fiery lake. :(

  24. PS RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICOLAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

  25. resriechan says:

    (Inhales deeply of the considerately provided fresh linens & floral arrangement; then lifts head WEAKLY, prompted by an pseudo-intellectual puzzle, and inquires of Theresa:

    “Is the Fiery Lake, located beside the Fiery Furnace, or am I mixin’ ……………………………………(gasp) my metaphors, here???”

    (collapses *ded* agin*)

  26. Queen of Dork says:

    *pant, pant. back. from. the. thing. (pant, pant. the. scary. thing)*
    Peeps: I’m asking for your help. Does anybody out there have this scary thing that you computer does where you have a window open and then suddenly and quite horrifyingly, all these windows of the same site keep opening up over and over and faster and faster and you can’t keep up with them and close them so you finally have to just reboot your computer and run and hide under the bed from the horribleness of it all?! Does anybody else have this strange thing that happens now and then with their computer or is it just mine? What should I do? Good Heavens, that’s a frightening thing. whew. *pant, pant. I think I’ll be okay now that it’s over for this time* PS – Sorry for the thread grab. I’m just rather startled right at the moment.

  27. Queen of Dork says:

    *Tucks Res back in bed (she fell out of bed onto the floor) with a hamster tucked under her chin. Gives her apple juice and puts movies of her choice in DVD player.*

    (squeak)

    QoD:

    (hate tuh be the one tuh break it to ya, deah, but –)

    Get thee to a RELIABLE computer person & give ‘em some bucks.
    To quote a line from a song from The Music Man: “Ya got Trouble, ma friend.
    Trouble with a capital T that rhymes with P and that stands for ………..”

    (well, the usefulness of that lyric dies out there asking for a relevant word about computer viruses/ spam, that starts with “P”. In this case, “programming” really doesn’t work . Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
    Editors, a little technical lingo, letter “P”, for this scenario??? Ennnnnnnyway……)

    (pretends to collapse again, so as to avoid the strenuous ER shift
    at CO on a Friday night)
    (*fake stage gasp* *fake stage cough*)

  29. resriechan says:

    (Now MY comment — # 27– has gone to the Fiery Lake, too!!)

    (Qu: Is that Fiery Lake, the same place, as Fire Lake in New England?)

  30. Queen of Dork says:

    No. It’s in the Netherland. And watch out for Gollum. He’ll do strange things to your computer. And he smells weird, too.

  31. I had to look twice since my name is Sabine but I’m not as big as her. So cute!

  32. Queen of Dork says:

    Awwww. Peeps, I love my cat! I was just petting him and he’s so cool and I love my cat soooo much. What a good boy. He’s just a sweetie, yes he is. (sorry about the baby talk. can’t help it. Whoose the good boy? whoose the sweetheart? yes, you are! You’re the baby boy! You’re the good, good boy!)

  33. @QoD, you are doing The Right Thing. ;)

  34. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: Thanks, dear. I try my bestest.

  35. @QoD, did your cat just give you an encore performance of PET ME NOW! ?
    mine just performed FEED ME NOW! while prancing atop the book I was studying.

    cats are simple: Meow generally can mean only 3 things
    1) “Feed me”
    2) “Pet me” also the variation “Play rug-monster with me”
    3) “Let me out” and the related “Let me back in”

  36. Ray:
    It could be those things.
    It could also be the dreaded “Open the door for me so I can stand half in and half out of the house for like 5 minutes deciding whether or not to go outside while you let all the nice hot air out of the house!”

  37. victoreia says:

    @Ray: there’s also another variant of #2–”Stop looking at that ‘puter thingy and PAY ATTENTION TO ME!”

    (Me? Owned by cats? Whatever gave you that idea?) ;)

  38. Re headline. I always think “Tit for tat”, is a stripper in a rather rundown club, with a scruffy clientell.

  39. I think the Q of D is trying to kill me with her humor tonight. Seriously! ROFL

    I think that’s a new tool in her nursing arsenal – kill the patients with laughter before they pass out from the qte.

  40. Queen of Dork says:

    Well gosh, dears. Here’s something that just happened to me. I went to the corner store to get some cat food. There were these people walking along coming toward me with a little girl about…I don’t know… maybe 3 or 4 or so. I stopped and said hello to her because, you know, well…she was just so cute. She said something back to me in her little language that I couldn’t understand. Then she held up her little hand to me and gave me this little purple flower that she had picked from somewhere! She gave it to me very willingly! Oh dear Lord, how absolutely sweet as heck is that? I still have it. It’s really just some sort of weed or something but what a nice gift, right?

  41. @ATanzer,
    I think your cat must be defective and requires a kitty-tuneup. He must have gotten stuck between 3a and 3b.

    Or just do what I do – a gentle kick to the reset button located just under the tail solves the problem nicely.

  42. Awww, the puppy is about as big as the big dog’s head!

    @ HonGlad in re mammary glands & workplaces: The Following is a True Story.

    “Once upon a time,I lived in a little hick town in Florida” ……….and there was a business on the roadside. Fortunately when I drove by that business;
    and did my visual doubletake, at the words on the sign for the business, I managed to keep the car on the road….
    The sign said — in huge letters: “STRIPPERS WORK HERE!!!”

    The same sign also said (in smaller letters, lower down):
    “Furniture Re-Upholstering.”
    To Quote Paul Harvey: “And now you know, the REST of the story!”

    @ QoD: All together, now, CO:
    “Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!”
    (said in all sincerity, sweetness, light & appreciation. no nasty icky sarcasm
    whatsovah; Ah promise!!!!!)

  44. @Hon & Resrie… there is a brick bldg in my town, and on the side is painted a very curvaceous wooden chair. Below it is painted “The Strip Joint”. (yes, it’s a furniture refurbisher)

    @QoD, I had a pop-up virus recently; I couldn’t get rid of it so I bought McAfee online and it cleared it up. If it’s just from websites, download Firefox & activate the pop-up blocker.

    Oh and… St Bernards are ridiculously adorable, and I had no clue how impractical a big dog could be until I adopted one, but I still would not trade him & his drool & making my legs fall asleep when we snuggle for the world! I wish I’d known him when he was a little floppy pup like Boris.

  45. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh! Is THAT what the heck that crap is?! Thank you KatieKat!!!

  46. QofD: Hope you can get it resolved. Sounds pretty scary. But I’d try McAfee first and then shell out the big bucks for a guru only if I absolutely had to.

    Resriechan, I live in one of those backward little hick towns in Florida – and I can’t even enjoy the beach because I’m a redhead.

    All of that said: OMG! I took one look at that baby with his mommy and spurted coffee out my nose before I died from Teh Qte.

  47. Re shop names, no puns on this one but I found it hilarous.
    It was a run down ladies Hairdressers MAISON GLADYS I think it was the faux refinement of the French for house coupled with the mundane Gladys. I have always found this name amusing, I think it is Welsh in origin and round these parts it was always shortened to Glad and associated with Char ladies (cleaners) in wrap round pinnies (Aprons) hair in curlers under a head scarf tied turbin style, and a fag (cigarette) clamped in one corner of the mouth.Jolly hard working but hardly sophisticated.

  48. resriechan says:

    @ Wordgirl:

    Redheads + wanting to go to the beach=
    IMHO, the best possible weather in which to enjoy a mellow day at the beach in Florida is during the weather in about October and in about March. However, I have no need of 90 degree weather to appreciate sand and splashing waves as some people prefer. Go to the beach on a day with bright sunshine at about 70 degrees for a few hours. If it’s REALLY bright sunshine then you might only stay out about 3 hours or so (there’s still some little possibility for getting just a bit roasted but maybe it will just be freckles).

    Signed,

  49. QOD-You have Mickey Mouse in The Sourcerer’s Apprentice playing on your computer at the time? That might have done it. (snerk) I hope you get it fixed quickly.

  50. Queen of Dork says:

    Speaking of strange signs on things, I once saw a sign at a military facility many years ago. It was at the end of a road on a closed gate and it said, “Stop. Gate Closed.” (duh)

  51. i’m betting the sign was more useful at night and they were tired of replacing gates

    oh, and look online for something called “SUPERAntiSpyware”, in case your popup problems are malware based. it kills all kinds of bad stuff, not just spyware

    and look in your browser’s help for how to block pop-ups. pretty sure they all have a setting for it. the number of dumb popups you block will be much higher than the number you will have to allow explicitly

    oh, and i fell over a bit when i saw the behbeh saintbernardo nomming his mommers’ nosicle, because that’s how physics works

  52. Queen of Dork says:

    blair: Thank you for all of that information! I didn’t know about the SuperAntiSpyware. It seems so sad to me that we must go to such lengths to protect our computers. As to the sign, who knows? It just seemed pretty stupid and unnecessary to me. The gate was in quite an obvious, well lit, easy to see place. And if you get close enough to read the sign then you probably should be able to see that the gate is closed. But maybe that’s just me. *sigh*

  53. @Blair & QoD — my standard recommendations, re: safe WWW browsing:

    1) Web browser: Mozilla Firefox, with AdBlock plug-in (and maybe NoScript, but it requires more routine tinkering)

    2) Anti-virus: Avast! Home Edition, which requires registration with a real email address, but it’s free for home use, self-updating, and effective

    3) Regular manual scans for spyware, adware, & other misc. malware: Spybot Search & Destroy.

    4) HEALTHY SKEPTICISM AND SAVVY. Absolutely irreplaceable.

  54. (…and no offense, Blair, but I don’t recommend SuperAntiSpyware or anything else that sounds quite so self-aggrandizing)

  55. Queen of Dork says:

    Theo: Gosh. Thanks. There’s alot about all of this that I apparently don’t know! I’ve only had a computer at home for about a year. Of course at work, there’s the IT folks to handle all of these things But at home, you’re on your own. Thank you for the advice!

  56. @Hon Glad, I believe the Welsh is “GWLADYS.” Which makes it, I don’t know, more Welsh I suppose. Just chuck a few “LLs” or random “Ws” in there. ;)

  57. Or is it “GLWADYS”?

  58. I can vouch for the spybot Search and Destroy, Teho recommended, it got rid of a couple of annoying little friends I had accidentally collected such as the crazy window opening virus you mentioned QofD.

    Best of all it is free!

  59. Queen of Dork says:

    Thanks kittyadventures. I just went on the spybot site but I as of yet cannot download anything. This is my daughter’s computer and apparently I need her password which I don’t know and she’s not home. But I will for sure do this when I can. I like how you call it “the crazy window opening virus!” I think I’ll name it WindoWack!

  60. Before I was born, my parents had a St. Bernard. They have photos of him as a pup (larger than the one in the photo, but much fluffier) small enough to sleep in the headboard of my parents’ bed and on my dad’s pillow. Fast forward nine months and Bear (government name, Fozz E. Bear) was six feet tall standing on his hind legs. I never got to meet him, as he was sent to a farm to live after my parents found out my mom was pregnant. (Dad was afraid Bear might jump on Mom and hurt her or me.) It’s amazing how large these dogs get, but for me, the larger the better. Guess I learned that early in the womb!

  61. So freaking cute love bernards lol that puppy will be on my dreams

  62. Still stunned by this puppy. I can almost smell his sweet puppy breath.

  63. Ohhh MATCHINKS
    I loooove Bernies and Newfies [Newfoundlands] because of their personalities.
    They are so unbelievably gigantic and are perfectly capable of smothering me, a fully grown human, yet they are the gentlest and most patient dogs in the whole world.

    Haha, my name is Samantha H.! I didn’t submit this though. Kudos to you, other Samantha H.
