I think my half-grown kitten just figured out the whole "hunting" thing, only, of course, he's not actually hungry, so he just leaves his kills all over the floor for me to find.  He's not even presenting them to me - they're just in the floor, basically forgotten toys.

Partial lizards are worse toys to leave on the floor than Legos.

I think this needs to be embroidered on a sampler. Or tattooed somewhere. :)

Paddy killed and ate an anole yesterday. It was quick enough that I could go "ah well; Nature red in tooth and claw and all that," but slow enough that I could feel guilty about not dispatching the lizard myself.

Since the weather has gotten a bit warmer, I've noticed an odd smell in my room.  It's almost a urine smell, but the pets don't come in here, and I swear it wasn't me!  Since the ceiling leaked and ruined my old mattress a couple years ago, the air has been rather damp.  I've been burning candles, and I haven't left any food in here.  I went looking for the source, and I just found what I believe to be black mold in the back of my closet and on the window sills.  :P  It would explain the sudden asthma flare-up, among other things.  I'm really hoping this isn't what I think it is, because I know it can't just be in my room!  I've also noticed the smell in the basement.

It sounds like mildew, at least, that's what mildew smells like to me.

Central Florida had a pretty strong line of storms blow through Sunday. Monday morning class, I walk in, lights are dimmed because of the presentation, and sit through class. At the end, the lights go up, and people started to realize everything that had touched the floor was wet. The carpet at the bottom of the auditorium-style classroom was standing water 1" deep. I called facilities, and they got it dry.

However, on Wednesday, that room stank so bad from the damp and mildew.  ???

First time in this thread but I've read everything and Vorbau can add me to the fan club!

I keep a small garden in the front of my house with a few holly bushes, some phlox, and what I call grass plants that resemble overgrown clumps of grass.  They're very common in my area and make a decent border plant on the edge of the garden.

Last week I was weeding, watering, etc. when I noticed what I thought was an oddly-shaped piece of mulch nestled in among the grass plants.  Nope - it was a cat turd  (is 'turd' an approved eHell word?  :-[).

I was grossed out to have cat feces in my bare hands ( :o) and flung it out into the front yard in surprise.  Later, when I was pulling weeds out of the lawn and hunting down the cat poo, I couldn't find it.  Anywhere!  I eventually gave up and went back in for the night. 

Come last week I'm mowing the front yard and look down in surprise to see a white-hair-encrusted cat turd!  It was so disgusting and so hysterical just sitting there in the middle of the yard.  I have a cat myself but she's a pretty-pretty princess and will go indoors to use the litterbox instead of going outside.  So it might have been hers but I'm blaming the neighborhood strays for the case of "Airborn Cat Biscuits".

LOL at the cat biscuits.

I was just mowing the lawn for the first time this spring & I found dog poo...the hard way.  Had to turn the mower over and hose it out as the pile was very fresh.

Word of advice. If you're having pizza for dinner loaded with fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions and mushrooms, don't have granola for an evening snack, your co-workers will not appreciate the resulting aroma the following day.

I just heard my brother groaning and gagging in the living room.  I asked him what was wrong, and he said, "Daisy 'butt-juiced' on the carpet!" 

Dog's anal glands...'nuff said.  :P

I just didn't think about it until I felt that ominous rumble in the gut that resulted in a mad dash to the bathroom.  :-[

There are some things about your parents that you just DON'T want to know.  :o :o :o

Heard that! My Pappaw, may he rest in peace, sometimes felt the need to tell me about him and Grandma....erm....playing scrabble in their younger days. O.O That's exactly the look I'd give him - eyes as big as 50-cent-pieces and all, then I would laugh and say, "Pappaw, I love you, but I really don't need to hear this." Sometimes he'd stop - but sometimes he'd keep going, LOL. He was in his 70s though, slowly losing his mind, quite the joker, and also very blunt (even before dementia started setting in), so I just chalked it up to that, LOL.
