Trying Not to Sneeze

I hope I don’t get sick. I might get a productive cough. And being productive is bad for my reputashons.

I bet Lilly washes her hands frequently, Lee K.



  1. Oh good lord, she’s booping her own wee nose, thereby upping the cute by a factor of seventy jillion!

  2. kibblenibble says:

    Sooo cozy. I surrender to the Qte.

    *Sighs. Slips into bed and gently spoons kitteh. Hears kitteh purr. Sighs again.*

  3. Norbertsmom says:

    Oh I am so jealous that I have now turned a lovely shade of green, my cats usually burrow themselves under the covers like that in the morning also. All you hear is purrrr in stereo sound 🙂

  4. Glad someone else wanted to spoon kitteh. Worried I was crossing some kind of line with my kitteh cuddling thoughts.

  5. Fird Birfle says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand THAT’s why we all bought yummy cozy linens!!!

    “Fur” tha kittayes !!!!! 🙂

    I know that’s why I indulged in the higher-thread-count set ….

  6. *checks qte-ulator* Yup, my exact calculashons!

  7. My hubby is off work this week. He’s two days into a rather nasty cold, but at least he’s able to ride it out at home. I, however, am getting the beginnings of same cold and have to work today and tomorrow.

    And to make matters worse, the coworkers whom I gave money to in order to pick up therapeutic Indian food for me when they go to get their lunch are taking forever about it, and my lunch hour is rapidly evaporating.


  8. *sigh* Kittehs. Always mocking my inability to stick out my tongue and touch my nose with it.

  9. hah – my doctor always asks (if I mention a cough) “is it a productive cough?”. I never knew what that meant but apparently its something to do with phlem. There is also a wet or dry cough but this is getting distasteful…..*returns to look at cute kitty*

  10. My niece and nephew (The Deadly Diva and Le Roi Soleil) were here yesterday, so Dante spent the day hiding under the beds upstairs, and occasionally coming out to hiss at us. 😆 So after they left, he spent the night wrapped around my neck. MOMMY!!! 😆

  11. So, what’s for eats and drinks in the Mod Lounge today? 😛

  12. Productive cough means are you coughing stuff up– you know, phlegm, mucus, blood, crude petroleum, gold ingots, plutonium, etc.

  13. I have some gin left over from the kitteh-bathing episode… is it to early for a G&T?
    Miss Schnozz will make some for ya in exchange for ear-skritchingks, I’m sure

  14. *facepalm* tooooo early, I mean. ugh.

  15. No, no no, you peeps got it all wrong. Obviously Her Royal Highness Miss Lilly is licking her chops wile waiting for breakfast i bed.

  16. It’s so hard to choose my favorite part of this photo, but near the top of the list are the mostly-strawberry-flavored toesies, with one raisin toe!!!

  17. adds to the list… Furballs, Trycicles, left over halloween candy, The neighbors dog, and three socks missing their mates.

  18. SOoo cute. Crowls back in bed to spoon kitty also!

  19. crawls … rolls eyes at my sad typing skills.

  20. Fird Birfle says:


    wow. TRICYCLES!!!

    now that’s a truly IMPRESSIVE “productive cough” !!!

    *KA, a genuine overachiever !!!

  21. Fird Birfle says:

    KA, usually, isn’t it *OTHER PEOPLE* rolling THEIR eyes?

    I can’t even manage to roll my OWN eyes, AT myself!! (although that
    is frequently WARRANTED, mind you 🙂 )

  22. Fird Birfle says:

    Wot, wait, THERESA — gold INGOTS??????

    (I di’nt see that detail until the second reading….)


  24. Fird Birfle says:

    YET ANOTHER wonderful product that Meg & Co ought to market, now
    that they have cornered the International Market of Cute Calendars!!

    I want a qte-ulator, and I want it NOOOOOWWWWW

    Signed, (?)
    Veruca Salt (I think that’s the one)

  25. Fird Birfle says:

    ka-CHING T.U.M.!!!

  26. have to agree here, she definitely seems to have bacon-ish breakfast in mind.*rummages through fridge to find breakfast for her highness*

  27. . . . Jumper cables, aspirin tablets with fuzz stuck to them, souvenir Murano glass paperweights, Judge Judy . . .

  28. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    *hands teensy hanky to kitteh*

  29. …tubes of lipgloss with the cap missing, the remote, the latest John Grisham paperback, a fruitcake…

  30. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Puzzle pieces, jewelry, AC adapters, TV remotes, copper wire, Yule logs, atlas maps, teapots, oven mitts…..

  31. emmberrann says:

    And a partridge in a pear tree!

  32. . . the dog from the Monopoly game . . .

  33. Ha! I can do that. But I have a long nose and a short upper lip. *thip thip*

  34. Norbertsmom says:

    Oh wait you mean that’s not for me? Hmmm no wonder my cats never leave me any room :-0

  35. while I am (still!) not a cat person… kittygirl here has reeeeallly pretty green eyes

  36. My little calico girl, Scout, finally has a little brother. He is an orange stiped kitten named Ponyboy – and he is very bad. But also extremely cute. He likes to sleep between the pillow and the pillowcase. The first time, I was worried that he might sufficate, so I make sure he has a breathing hole in the end, which he eventually sticks his little head out and it looks like my pillow is giving birth.

  37. Fird Birfle says:

    Yule logs???? Those are pretty big pieces o’ lumber 🙂

  38. Fird Birfle says:

    YAY Scout YAY Ponyboy and YAY ScoutsMom,
    for buying those linens & making that bed for them !!!

  39. Fird Birfle says:

    re.: “(still!) not a cat person “……yeh. right. we believe you.

    (stifled *snerk*, hidden behind hand)

  40. In my experience productive coughs hurt less than the other kind. Like vomiting with something in your stomach versus throwing up on an empty one.

  41. Christmas pudding. And leftover fudge — I prefer the peanut butter kind as opposed to chocolate.

  42. Yeah, seems likes tracylee is protesting a little too much!

  43. . . . soup bones, Duran Duran, an IBM PC with an 8088 chip and two floppy drives . . .

  44. I LOVE Christmas pudding.

  45. Welcome, Ponyboy. I have a feeling you’ve ended up in a the warmest and most loving of homes. Yay indeed!

  46. Sending you healing vibes and positive thoughts, Noelegy!

  47. Baby reds are very special.

  48. Nuh uh!

    *tongue out in Rude manner*

  49. Wait, you didn’t know? 😎

  50. Uh, Pyrit? Point of order here: Miss Lilly would be washing her paws, not her hands.

  51. Fird Birfle says:

    (*giggles verreh verreh quietleh*)

  52. Fird Birfle says:

    so Dante was *ahem* NOT impressed???

  53. Looks more like the Bronx cheer to me

  54. Thank you! I wash my hands frequently–seriously, I am a freak about not touching doorknobs at work, I always use a paper towel because this place is a germ vector–and then my HUBBY goes and gives me his cold. Sniffle snorkle snerk.

  55. The more I look at this photo, the more I see Lilly saying, “Nyah nyah, I’m in bed and you’re not!”

    Cold, cruel world…

  56. Don’t forget fruitcake, inner tubes, a Rubik’s cube, and Ameli Earhart! 😉

  57. AWW 😀 I am so glad to hear about your new kitty (Ponyboy), ScoutsMom 😀 I hope and pray that you have many, many years of snorgling with those two kitties of yours 😀

  58. AWW 😀 I would not mind having Lily in my bed 😀

  59. It looks to me as though she is brandishing her fist and challenging us to a fight. “Yeah, I just dare you to get under these comfy covers with me! I’ll hang a beating on you, I will!”

  60. Hi ho, I’m in the Mod Lounge and I wasn’t even trying. Let’s see what there is for refreshments….

  61. I’m going to be making Thai curry chicken soup tomorrow. I’ll send you some to help with your therapy.

  62. Norbertsmom says:

    Well I had an idea, but I was kind of hopong for the best…LOL

    Alright already! Enough of the upchucking !
