Wide Awake and Confused
Taylor: Whatcha looking for, Marcus?
Marcus: Our blog posts. The ones that aren't getting written. I figure they must be buried under my ball since they aren't on our blog.
Taylor: Don't worry. They will be. It's just that things have been so hectic around here for so long and now every time Jan turns on the computer, we get a storm and have to shut down again.
Marcus: Today's storm was a doozy, but at least we were able to be back online. Almost took off our back screen door when Jan was carrying Rusty inside. And the lightning sure hit something close by.
Taylor: When are we going to finish posting the last of our Mousebreath interviews?
Marcus: As soon as we can get a block of time to post them. Those poor bloggers have been waiting since the end of February.
Taylor: Well, we'd better get to them soon or those bloggers are going to think we absconded with their money.
Marcus: We get money to do those interviews? Nobody ever told me that!
Taylor: I was kidding. We were doing it as a labor of love to showcase the diverse talents of our blogging friends.
Marcus: We did a fun interview with Spider and Gracie (Presenting Spider and Gracie) in February. They were planning to start a blog in May, but on May 6 Spider left for the bridge. She would have been 20 years old on Wednesday, June 27.
Taylor: Now we'll never get to read their blog. I always enjoyed reading their questions to Ask Max on Mousebreath and couldn't wait for the blog opening. I'll miss Spider.
Marcus: Gracie and her Food Lady miss her too. I wonder if I'll have as much vim and vinegar as she did when I'm 20 years old.
Taylor: I hope you mean vim and vigor, not vinegar.
Marcus: I guess I do. I got sidetracked. The police stopped a car across the street a bit ago. The car was just loaded on a tow truck. The guy was handcuffed and put in the back of one of the police cars.
Taylor: And you didn't tell me? I would have liked to see that too.
Marcus: I didn't want to interrupt your typing.
Taylor: Did we cover everything we wanted to today?
Marcus: Actually, I thought we should acknowledge how much better we furries are at counting than humans are.
Taylor: Of course. But why do you say that?
Marcus: When we posted Jan's age (Half of Ten Centuries), many assumed Jan to be 50, but half of ONE century is 50. Half of TEN centuries is 500.
Taylor: These humans need to be wide-awake when they read our posts, but it's such fun to confuse them.
