Calming Caps Back On.

We're pretty much back to normal.

Mom is no longer dog tired. (Ha ha ha ha!) And, bonus! Mom decided that some of that dog money will get us an exterior Cooleroo shade for the balcony door! We think this will not only help with our constant summer sun exposure but cut way down on the whining about how hot it is inside.

El and I share our glee over this anticipated improvement. We guess dogs have some actual purpose after all.

Conspicuously Absent.

Mom has gone to the dogs again. We hope to be back tomorrow soon.

Mom here: I've had some client issues come up that demand my attention, and it does happen to be a rescue group website. No actual dogs are involved, though.

Elliott Go Bragh.

We are still not liking this time change. And our mom's still experiencing some sort of time disruption uproar: she says she can't get to sleep and then she can't get awake. Everything is off!

At least she's been too busy to think about getting the St. Patrick's Day catware out to further torture us. But I tell you, I could really use some corned beef.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!

Annoyance Plus.

The whole couch, and this one has to be practically up my nose. Despite my being squished in the corner! And — and! — he's got his icky little boy foot right on me!

Whinoline will not be getting her Amazon wishlist fulfilled. (As if Izzy and I would ever agree to living on the balcony!) Plus, even if we were of a mind to spend, Bast knows we would opt to buy "that new iPhone." (We'd even talk Mom into donating her still-in-use 2004 cell to the House of Representatives.)

And why are our tails in a puff over the Amazon tax issue when others have paid tax on purchases for eons? First, Amazon has no physical presence in this state. Second, it is -- at least to the ordinary folks who live here -- completely out of the blue. Third, neither Amazon nor the State will comment as to how this came about. I have the answer. It's clearly the work of

Taxation And Vexation.

Hurry, Mom! We have less than a month to shop on Amazon before we're forced to start paying tax on stuff!

I totally want a couple of these CatHaven Cat Condos.

And I guess for those stoopy boys, we could get this Outdoor Cat Run so they can be banned to stay outside on the balcony.

Izzy Ponders The Upcoming BTC*.

*Big Time Change

So Mom and her kind will spring ahead soon. Does this mean I should start prompting her for dinner an hour earlier? Start my helpful reminders -- or, as she inaccurately calls it, 'yipping' -- earlier in the afternoon? I'm almost four and I still don't get this ritual.
