Did I read it--Watch It--Or Both--Or Neither

Wolfie, a very cute white rat of The Fluffy Tribe, tagged Me and Tommy and Mom to do a meme.

This picture is from a long time ago but you can see that Tommy likes to watch TV. In the last post, you may notice that he also enjoys a good book.

Anyway, the instructions for the meme are as follows: "Copy the list below. Mark in bold the movie titles for which you read the book. Italicize the ones you've watched. Then tag five people to perpetuate the meme."

  1. Jurassic Park
  2. War of the Worlds
  3. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
  4. I.Robot
  5. Contact
  6. Congo
  7. Cocoon
  8. The Stepford Wives
  9. The Time Machine
  10. The Time Machine
  11. Starship Troopers
  12. The Hichhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  13. K-Pax
  14. 2010
  15. The Running Man
  16. Sphere
  17. The Mothman Prophecies
  18. Dreamcatcher
  19. Blade Runner
  20. Dune
  21. The Island of Dr. Moreau
  22. Invasion of the Body Snatchers
  23. The Iron Giant
  24. Battlefield Earth

  26. Fire in the Sky
  27. Altered States
  28. Timeline
  29. The Postman
  30. Freejack
  31. Solaris
  32. Memoirs of an Invisible Man
  33. The Thing
  34. The Thirteenth Floor
  35. Lifeforce
  36. Deadly Friend
  37. The Puppet Masters
  38. 1984
  39. A Scanner Darkly
  40. Creator
  41. Monkey Shines
  42. Solo
  43. The Handmaid's Tale
  44. Communion
  45. Carnosaur
  46. From Beyond
  47. Nightflyers
  48. Watchers
  49. Body Snatchers
O.K...Obviously, Tommy, my mom and I haven't been going to movies or watching t.v. much or reading many of the same books. However, of all those books above, my mom says she thinks the most important for everyone to read, think and talk about is 1984. Welcome to our world...Eeeek!! it's Double-Speak!!

Now, I'm supposed to pick five friends and their families to do this same meme. If you would rather walk on shards of glass that do this, please feel free to skip it. However, I pick--Fat Eric and his family, Abby Normal and her family, Parker and her family, Scooby and his family and last but not least Derby and his family.

Have a wonderful week all!

Purrs,
Shilgiah and Tommy and their Mom

Just Helping

Honest, I was just trying to help. It has been very very hot until this weekend, so when mom came home Friday with some Fancy Feast and Ice Cream, I just wanted to be helpful. The fancy feast was fine but it was clear that the ice cream was leaking down the sides of the carton. Mom cleaned the sides off and then opened the top to get some of the excess melting part out so it wouldn't leak any more. While she was turning around to get a scoop or something, I thought it would be very nice if I jumped up and helped her keep the ice cream from leaking out more. I hadn't helped her like this since we had lived in our old house. I think she was quite surprised that I could jump up and be so helpful.

Mmmm...and it's "no sugar added" to help me keep my girlish figure!

Peace Talks

This week Tommy and I have done considerable talking about how to live more peacefully together. Our negotiations have gone well and we have jointly agreed that I will stop biting his butt fur in exchange for him not pushing me away from my special curl-up-near-mom's-head space on the bed. There were several other minor concessions we each made to the other but I am just too tired to talk about them right now.

At Peace. Sure wish people could find peace for themselves and the world as easily as we cats.

Oh Brother

Last night my brother Tommy really bugged me. It happened in the middle of the night. I was curled up next to mom's head purring ever so sweetly and being careful not to awaken her. Tommy, the perpetual suck-up, jumped up on the bed and pushed me aside by squeezing his 20lb body between me and mom. Then he curled up where I had been and did his OH SO LOUD BIG BOY PURR (which sounds something akin to a defective lawn mower) right in mom's ear. Of course, this woke mom up but all she said was..."What a sweet big boy"!!


He looks so innocent, doesn't he?

If any of you cats out there can think of some way I could get even with him for being so pushy and for getting more attention from mom than me please let me know.
