So, on November 14th we will be participating in the 2nd annual Worldwide Moment - a moment when everyone sends out their purrs and woofs for all the sick kitties and doggies who need it. It started last year with Snickers, who was Butchy's sister who went to the bridge last year. Everyone sent their hopes out that Snickers would get better. She did end up leaving for the bridge, but we know she felt all the love headed her way before she left. This year, in her memory and in hopes of sending the love to all those who need it, it is happening again. Jake and Fergie, two of our doggie friends, are organizing it and made this great banner. We think it is a great idea and hope you all do too. If you haven't heard of it before you can visit their blog to read some about it. And if you have we know you will be joining us!
Ok, now on to other business. Tomorrow would normally be our Friends on Friday, but I am so behind I don't have it ready. I am planning on getting caught up this weekend. The laptop I had is now in use by others (boo) and so I can't even visit at lunch again. I wish I could bring my computer in but well, that would just look weird since I don't normally do that. I have a smart phone with internet but it is too small to really use well - it is very frustrating! So the plan this weekend is to catch up and then next week hopefully I will have a better idea of how I plan to visit everyone. The stupid thing is now I just sit and stare at my computer when I have nothing to do. See, they have both blocking software, which blocks any fun sites (like blogs, facebook, even Gmail). But they also have tracking software, so it tells corporate every site I visit - so even if I could get to fun sites it would be tracked. BOO! They have the games on the computer that came with it (freecell, minesweeper) BUT when you click it you get a message that they are disabled because of the companies computer usage policy (you get basically the same message when you go to a fun site - except it says internet usage policy, not computer policy). I understand why they do it but it isn't like I don't get all my work done. I know a girl who does put down extra time because she spends time on facebook and doesn't get done during her regular hours, but I don't do that. I just do my job too well I guess. Oh, and before you ask, yes, she is at my company but since her computer is older they haven't put the software on it yet. Ok, seriously this is not a whine about my job blog, this is a cat blog. So, well, the cats are all doing good. I will try to get some pictures, and if I am lucky I will get video of Gus with his silly noises. His meow is just so, well, whiney and funny.
I hope everyone is having an ok week - I know lots of our friends are sick and we are sending out tons of purrs for all of you!!
