Sabaki is determined to involve herself in dire muscidaemantic rituals. Kitties betray so well both sides of that last coin. But flies? Yuck. Well, better she than me. Let's just buzz along, down Hwy 101, which is known as the Oregon Coast Highway here in the state where things look different. Who came up with that, anyway? Maybe it refers to the Oregon State Flag, which has a different image on each side. The kitties are of two minds about this.

Back to Highway 101, which will be disguised as Friday Ark 101, and arrive nearly Friday one way or the other, thoroughly ensconced little, big-like right inside the infinitely fractal tubes that lead to Modulator's ongoing experience in animal husbandry. Check it out.

Meanwhile, this week, the metauniversally famous Carnival of the Cats #127 will be hosted at a safehouse sounding kind of place, Catymology.

Hmm, well, interesting list of books never finished and why. Earlier today I thought about Hopeful Monsters by Nicholas Mosley, which became a sludge of pretentious dreck after a few dozen pages. Sullied up my precious mental knickers.

Finishing books is over rated. Actually, the boundaries between books are overrated. How could you finish a delicious gazpacho like Campbell's Bose-Einstein Condensed Soup of Books? You can't eat just one.

Lady and Houdini both insist they weren't really playing, and really, there is only one kitty here anyway. They are very good at being innocent.

There's no need to feel innocent about Modulator's stunning achievement with reaching the big one, it's gonna be the Friday Ark 100! Yowsers! This is truly something. Mark your calenders and rent the tux two weeks in advance just to be sure. You can never be sure.

One thing for which there is a wellspring of desire for the comfort of surety, that is the expectation that the 126th Carnival of the Cats will be hosted at Red Peonies. There are eight contributors listed and the last post was over two weeks ago. The kitties are nervous.


Ok, I lost the segue logic, it was there for a few minutes. This comes next:

Is this like an Erdos Number? Did Erdos ever Friday Cat Blog?

There is also defined the Erdos Go Number, for the esteemed gentleman played that most excellent of games, Go. (That's interesting, that's the first time I've ever seen parens in an URL.)

I have an Erdos Go Number of 2, as I have played go with someone who has played go with Paul Erdos. I dish out threes for free - just ask.

Lady and Houdini Out Rolling Around. Everyone has to roll in something, I guess. I think I'm with Lady on this one.

This week, she's getting spiffed up and hitting the books, in preparation for that durable stratum of the extensive league of webagnomes shaking the firmament with a down home beat. That would be Friday Ark 99 rhythmically expounded at Modulator

The gravity of the situation grumbles from within. Kitties know that humans will feed them randomly in response to obsessive attention. Unfortunately, our dear friend in the Austra regions seems to be off her diet. I hope all is well. All the kitties send prays and best wishes to eatstuff, where many weekends one finds a marvelous Weekend Cat Blogging event. And food. The kitties like the food.

This week, Blog d'Ellison hosts the 125th Carnival of the Cats. The host is a veteran, with many fine cat herding adventures under his belt, so to speak, so hang in there, and it'll all be just purring along. Come Sunday Sunday Sunday.

Lady and Houdini Out Hosing Around. Lady has been trying to convince Houdini that flooding the backyard with water will summon Friday Ark 98 that much sooner - Houdini points out the methodical madness with which the Ark Tender Modulator keeps time with the weboverse. No one is convinced.

The kitties both seek advocates from afar, beseeching venerable eatstuff for advice, and maybe a bite to eat. Lightly braised salmon with a whipped asparagus sauce, garnished with grated calimari and served with a medley of fried shellfish and peppers. Maybe?

Or Ice Cream, that's always cool.

Meanwhile, closer to home, the seeking kitties implore the inhabitants and enablers of the most fun Carnival of the Cats, this week self hosted by that lovable anal retentive at This Blog is Full of Crap, for a bit of direction or two. One. One Direction. Herding cats, that is. One.

Move along, here.
