Repost: A Tail Of Two Kitties

A repost from 2007, and 2008. Just to say that at this time of year, and especially this year with the economy still in the trench, there are children who need a "kitty" of their very own.  -pale
KITTY!
kitty, in better days, before the stuffing came out.

Its that time of year again.

I call it the annual stressfest (otherwise known as Christmas.)
Its that time when everyone wants your money: stores, charities....

I bet you can tell by the title that this is probably not a political diary?

No, this is a diary about something entirely different.

Blessed Samhain!

Or, Happy Halloween.
The leaves were swirling all over the yard yesterday as I grabbed one of our old xmas trees out of the back in the guerilla composting pile.

It has been resurrected and once again graces our living room.

The gurlies and I put lights and pumpkins and cobwebs on it. A black cat is the "star."
The gurlies think it is the finest Samhain tree ever. I took this pic with my fone, so it's not the best quality, but you get the idea. 

 

The Tories under the Bus....

 

Thhhhhhhhe Tories under the bus go thump thump thump, thump thump thump. thump thump thump,

the Tories under the bus go thump thump thump!

All over town!

 

Thhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhe Media on the Bus goes Shhhhhhhhhh shhhhhhhhh Shhhhhhh,   Shhhhhhhhhh shhhhhhhhh Shhhhhhh,  Shhhhhhhhhh shhhhhhhhh Shhhhhhh, 

Observations through thick and thin.....

I have said it before. I am a walkin' talkin' eating disorder.

I started purging and crash dieting at the age of 12. Fast forward a few years, and I found myself a size 22. At the moment I am a much smaller size, purely a reaction to stress. Just could not eat. Period.

So, I can give you the skinny, as it were, on how people act and react to my various sizes, it's an interesting thing actually.

When I was a larger lady, I always dressed fairly well, hair and makeup always done. Despite that, it became common to be treated as invisible. Lots of people offer dieting advice too, unasked for and unwanted and not always in a kindly way. But that is always a given, the holier than thou art types think they need to save you from yourself.
