Finally got done with my tiny “I am too making progress!” work on our renovation.

I didn’t take a lot of kitteh photos this past week, but did capture Bagheera contemplating when to inform me that it is indeed a trap, Olivia telling me she hasn’t been fed in forever, plus a bonus from more than a week ago, because I can’t remember if I already posted Bagheera drinking from the sink, which he insists on doing regularly.

oh, and this happened...

Trump attorney who became a crucial witness against him has departed legal team

Evan Corcoran, an attorney for Donald Trump who became a critical witness in the classified documents case against the former president, no longer represents him, CNN has learned.

Yep. Attorney-client privilege goes out the window when crimes or criminal conspiracies are in the mix. And Corcoran is a material witness.

one of the, if not THE, most materielest.

the lady Trump hugged at Jesus Chicken was a plant. she's the head honcho at Blaxit (formerly run by Candace Owens. go figure.)

The entire "event" was staged days in advance. But you won't be seeing any of *that* reported in the beltway media; they are committed to the destruction of democracy in this country.

Expand full comment

oh, of course. it's all carefully choreographed lest Dear Leader's feeling may get hurt.

Expand full comment

Of course she is. No self-respecting Black woman would ever hug that asshole without getting paid.

Expand full comment

Hopefully a lot....in advance.

Expand full comment

For real? I was wondering.

Expand full comment

But of course she was.

Do you really believe that awkward hug would've occurred any other way?

Expand full comment

Many people are saying that they have to drug the flags he hugs so they don't constrict around him in self defense.

Expand full comment

the only real question was for which shady operation she works.

Expand full comment

BLEXIT. It's controlled by Charlie Kirk.

thank you! yeah, that's another detail that just makes it even more stupid.

Ciaobella Jr has seating auditions today for his youth orchestra. One of the pieces he’ll have to play is this fiendishly difficult excerpt from Mahler’s Fifth Symphony:

Did "The Bad Clam Experience" bow out?

Expand full comment

Due to some odious behavior, they were canned.

Expand full comment

Remember, for some of them you have to wear a mask.

Don't take the brown acid.

I hope the clams aren't canned.

Of course they are.

The NHL has finally put the Arizona Coyotes out of their misery - the team has been sold and will be moved to Salt Lake City. Apparently they felt the team’s arena “plan” of hoping to win a land auction was a bit lacking in details. Which was their Plan C while they continued to rent space from Arizona State University to play in a 5,000 seat bandbox.

This is mildly confusing if you only know the word "frappe" from Friendly's Restaurant chain. Theirs was (is?) basically a milkshake.

I think that might have been a New England-ism, but I'm not sure.

"How about Brawckton?"

"How about Maahblehead?"

It is, at least in N. New England.

If, like me, you could never get into Harry Potter, and also you are in Veg Mode, this his a hilarious Pitch Meeting about all the movies and tells you everything you (don't really) need to know:

Thanks for a good laugh, but that link has fuck-all to do with Harry Potter.

Wife is out on a mommy-daughter day with her mom until dinner. Totally a pregnancy spa day, so no worries on over exerting or being on her swollen feet much.

So, I am alone with the pets. Should I go get some gummies and binge watch The Boys? I totes have permission. :-D

Go for it.

Can't be any worse than my workday. I get to deal with K-pop stans alongside the usual suspects.

How far is she now? Probably showing pretty good, I would think.

Conception date at the doc was August 7th. :-D

Of course, if you want to!

Are you two going to have a baby? Congrats!

Due the 29th. :-)

I can't believe how quickly it's gone. It seems like 5 minutes since you told us. Everything crossed for an safe and joyful birth - she will swear at you though but don't take it personally. I swore like a sailor at the other half apparently.

Congratulations to you both. You will be awesome parents.

Congrats! may it all be as boring as having a baby can be! (aka all safe and well)

Expand full comment

Well-put. Even if everything goes perfectly it's still pretty dramatic!!

Me and my kids are safe & well now, but youngest had a NICU stay & I got preeclampsia with eldest.

Expand full comment

I'm glad to hear everyone's well!

My wife does pregnancy care so I can pretend to know about all this stuff, but I don't, really.

Expand full comment

Even if you didn’t have permission you should.

Expand full comment

I know she doesn't care, but because she can't drink or enjoy weed I gave up booze until she can drink and I like to get permission on the gummies. I don't want to do something she can't if it bothers her. ;-)

What a considerate spouse you are!
