Labour Day.

It's a state public holiday in Melbourne today (with apologies to those here for whom it is not because they're in federally funded institutions.

So the air is full of the sounds of whipper-snippers, mowers, and power tools. Also someone next door with a mallet. A mallet and a brick wall, I think.


The cat's health woes continue. The morning pill session seems to be a more accepted part of the day, although unfortunately that includes the all important routine of chasing Foo out from under the bed with a long handled duster and trapping her in the kitchen. Then afterwards, it's very important that she not let me touch her for a while. But she'll now do most of this with the occasional friendly meow.

Also, I was buying her affection by giving her cat cookies but now she insists on them before I'm allowed to pat her. She appears to have realised that I really want her to like me. She'll purr at me. But she won't come near until cookies are presented. Then she'll have a good pat and rub. I do not really like to think of the possible analogies here.

I have been pwned by a cat.


And last week I had to take a stool sample to a pathology lab (as in a sample of mine). It seems they've lost it. I'm worried because it has my name and address on it, and I really don't want it back.

That made me snort - the idea of a sample being delivered back to you in the mail.

You are indeed being pwned. Clever cat!

I just learnt this possibly apocryphal story about the origin of the name of the Moomba festival. (It was told to me by an American.)

Yes, the training period can vary depending on how quickly the human learns to bend to the will of the cat.

As for the, ahem, sample, I came across an advertisement for an edible product, a little pill with glitter. Apparently it produces amazing and startling results, perfect - as the advertisement assured - for when you have to submit stool samples. The glitter, as claimed, will not affect most medical tests but is guaranteed to freak out the lab technician.

That last sentence made me laugh :-)
