Morning Linkage

The Cheese Mistress has an excellent cat-washing method. Genius!

Victor sends me link love for my donation to the Get Pixy Pissed fund. (This assumes that my recollection about the word "pissed" being Australian slang for "intoxicated" is correct. Hopefully it doesn't mean "sexually violated by a koala", because, hey, that's no fun. I mean, I've heard that. I wouldn't know. Really.)

Any PETA loon who did this to my child would quickly develop some personal health issues.

I have it on good authority that Blackfive was wearing hobbit feet and referring to his wedding ring as "my Precious" when he saw Return of the King.

Ted wants to smack down (among others) the flu-panic-mongers. I agree, even though that disagreement runs counter to my desire to throw up my hands and run through the streets screaming "We're all gonna die!" at least once before I actually expire.

I can't believe you gave away the secret meaning of "pissed". For shame, Mr. Green. If it wasn't for that bloody funny Nigerian letter thingy I'd be really pissed. See, in Australia, pissed is a many-nuanced word.

What I want to know is if you have picture evidence of Blackfive with the Hobbit feet - Enquiring minds want to know!

One of my friends has a young son who was sick. When she took him to the doc, in a panic, thinking he might have this "deadly" flu. The doc said - all the people who have died, had some other major medical problem too especially the children. (for heaven sake one child had lupus! of course the flu would be deadly in that case) He said he wanted to wring the necks of all those reporters who've been playing this up! Turns out her son had strep - which untreated would've had worse consequences than the flu!
