13 Reasons Why You Should Update Your Blog in a Timely Fashion

1. You have new kittens and must post new pictures
Yes, true and here's the latest and cutest. However, they don't sit still and even though we consider them cute, all the attention was causing the other cats to have some insecurity issues....see below.
2. Playoffs are going on for High School football- keep the world informed
Alas, the team lost in the semi-finals which was no surprise, since they played the same kids offensively and defensively with minimal substitutions. Our team got tired and the other team is just plain awesome. Incredible running backs and quick play, is it okay to say that the opposing team was fun to watch?
3. You just had your anniversary- you should brag about it
Yep, 23 years and 15 of them happily, only kidding. We had a lovely meal out and hurried back to watch the Red Sox. Maybe next year we will go down Arkansas for a golf weekend.
4. Your oldest son has a creepy girlfriend who compulsively blog reads
Hmm, creepy girlfriend, well I have been known to read my kid's myspaces and their friend's live journals in my time, so who is creepier? And don't you have something to study?
5. The world wants you to be in touch with technology
Ah, but I have been in touch with technology, I went to blog earlier this week and discovered that I was running out of memory on my Ibook. Guess I should be taking my pictures in a lower resolution and now I have to go to Apple Support and figure out how to transfer my pictures to an external hard drive. Plus, I have to deal with two little fur balls who seem to think that my lap belongs to them, oh wait, what's that thing moving, mmm, that wire looks tasty, what's that knobby thing on the side? Can I chew it? Oh look, there's my brother, I just want to touch his tail....and so it goes.
6. Life can't seriously be THAT boring
Believe it or not, yes, it can be, or I get so wound up about a news story that I can't think straight. Or, could it possibly be that I am making gifts......who's being naughty or nice?
7. The Pats beat the Colts- and you have nothing to say about it
That was a pretty good game and according to my Dad who is in Florida, everybody hates the Patriots now. They are a pretty scary team and you know, I have grown to love Peyton Manning. He was a riot on Saturday night live and doesn't seem to take himself as seriously as the obnoxious football announcers do.
8. You will never win dishtowels by denying your readers their right to read blogs
Well Beanie---I didn't see you going over to Tea's to throw a vote or two or three or ten my way. I think I am over it, kind of and need to take that crazy guy off my side bar.
9. Pictures of bears are not nearly as cute as pictures of kittens
After seeing a bear up close on our bird feeder, I can agree with you there. I put up our bird feeders last week and I think I should have waited another week or two based on a recent letter to the editor. It seems that the bears around here are still hungry, just like cats.
10. Punky is eating kitten whiskers- that is totally notable
Yes, this is true and for all you cat people out there, have you ever had another cat chew down the other's whiskers? You may be able to see the result in the pictures, but we did catch our big boy black and white cleaning Stash's ears and face and then start chomping. This was after I had taken the kittens to the vet and pointed out the lack of facial whiskers and he asked if my kids were young, then we thought it was his sister doing the chewing. Doesn't seem to bother him and he still hangs out with all the cats.
11. Nothing is so enjoyable when procrastinating as reading a blog... and I have been unable to enjoy procrastinating for over a week
Well Beanie, when you are spending your hard earned money reading my blog rather than enjoying academic pursuits at school, maybe then I should feel good that I am allowing you to succeed in your studies (or provide you with more time to spend with your handsome boyfriend.)
12. News with the writers strike... do you really have no opinion about the lack of television shows in the near future?
I guess I don't have an opinion about television shows since I have been working a few evenings in the lab and I am not hooked on any one show. Plus, my husband can always find a college football game on somewhere.
13. You just should.
I know, but I have been kicking some serious butt playing QWERTY on pogo and am still trying to figure out why I lose so much at Canasta. Then there are the four crocheting or knitting projects that I have lying around the house, extra hours at work, checking out information about Fort Smith Arkansas to prepare for our move in four years and the day to day stuff. I have also read about 8 books in the last two weeks, most of them really good!
