don't like

Spam from Dr Cox?

I got a spam e-mail from Perry Cox saying that he'd like to have on-line chats with me. Somehow I doubt that. Cox does not do chats, and I'd hate to know what his nickname for me would be. Actually Drs Cox and House should meet. I would pay to see that.

Speaking of House, I see it's coming on TV here soon. Snarkfest time!

Cat on a hot tin (well, fibrolite) roof

There was a sudden thump scraaaaaaaaaaaape thump on the roof above us, and Greg and I looked at each other.

"What was that?" I said.

"I have no idea."

I was beginning to suspect that I had. "I think a cat got out the bedroom window and slid down the roof." (All our upstairs windows are set into the roof, so they all lead onto slopes of varying degrees, and that side is steep.)

I went outside and sure enough, Vic peered over the gutter at me and meowed piteously. The roof is very steep there and I didn't think any of the cats would be stupid enough to use it as a way out. We had to induce him over towards the fence where he leaped onto a tree and made his way down it, making kitten-like meows all the way. :-P
