Hallowaitaminute, What The Hell Are You Supposed To Be

It's that time of year again.  Time for the Dress-Like-an-Idiot-and-Make-an-Ass-of-Yourself work party.  Dad kind of has to go, since his job sort of requires it, and mom doesn't mind going along, even helping out.  They're not really the social type, but hey, free food and a chance to see others cross dressing or making themselves up like ghouls, zombies, wizards and animals sounds like great fun, doesn't it?  Yes?  Hello?  And don't get me going on the creepy Stormtrooper guy...
     So begins what was originally going to be my next post.  Jeez, I didn't realize how long it'd been since my last one.  Anyway, let it go, you old ass.  The party was a great success.  It's primarily for the kids anyway, and they all had fun.  Seems someone gets crankier and party-poopier every year! (I'm thinking mom will agree with me here)
     Party aside it's been S.S.D.D. around here.  Temps have dropped a few degrees overall, mom's doing her heavy duty fall cleaning, and I got another bath, which I don't mind admitting is getting easier to tolerate.
     While out and about this past weekend mom and dad stopped at Petco and Petsmart.  Both places were having adoption events, and mom and dad were saddened by the dozens and dozens of cats and dogs hoping to find forever homes.  
     Well, that's about all I got for now.  Bye.

What is SSDD? Nevermind - glad you are as lovely as ever Mr Orbit! Take care

What, no pictures?

And I want to know what SSDD is, too.

My mom always gets all sad when she visits the local shelter either online or in person because of the hundreds of cats looking for homes. Especially the older ones who always wind up being there for eons. (At least the city has stopped the death row approach.)

I saw dozens of cats at the local Petco on Saturday, and my arms longed to hold each and every one of them! Saw how dedictated the rescue people were, and there were tons of folks 'shopping' so I'm hoping there were some furever homes for many! However, the look on the faces of the older cats was sad, and I whispered love and kind wishes to many of them

S.S.D.D.= Same Shit Different Day. Sorry all, I guess I thought it was a more common phrase that it actually is.
