7 Radom Things About Nermal

Nermal and I have missed playing with all his kitty friends on Tuesdays! I was really busy with offline studying, I don't know what Nermal's excuse is.... I'm not done with my studying, but we have a little bit more time to play right now. We'd like to start off with a quick tribute to our good friend Oscar, purrs and nudges to him in kitty heaven, we'll miss you.... purrs and nudges to his human Robyn too....

Gattina gave us an assignment some time ago, and we've been meaning to complete it for the longest time, so finally, here are 7 random things about Nermal:

  1. He's the best alarm clock.
  2. He used to hump people's legs when they were sleeping....that's before he got fixed.
  3. He likes chicken and tuna, sometimes salmon, but never trout, go figure?
  4. I think he has arthritis.
  5. He's always curious what I'm eating or drinking. He'll always beg for some and only quits when I let him see, smell or taste what I'm having.
  6. It takes about 5 to 6 months for his hair to grow back after a haircut.
  7. I just shaved the hair around his butt. I think it's time for another haircut Nermal.
We don't have 7 kitty friends to tag, but maybe I could tag nos amis Laurence et son joli chat Harissa.

Whoaw! I haven't played in a while.... but I'm glad to finally have some time to spend on my much neglected blog.... Here is a picture of the brand spanking new, and very SHINY "Crystal" at the Royal Ontario Museum.....ROM Crystal

You might remember that I posted this for the "architecture" PhotoHunt....

So here is the finished product.....

Here is a peek into the interior of the Crystal.... It's pretty SHINY inside too....

I should probably devote an entire blog to this thing.....

Until then, Happy Photohunting folks!

Long Time No See

I'm really sorry for just dropping off the face of the blogosphere, but with a little over a month to finish memorizing all of this....going on my blog, and on the internet in general for anything longer than 5 mins, elicited feelings of dread and impending doom. I tend to get caught up and lose track of time when I'm on here, and I couldn't afford to use any time unless it was for cramming information into my head. As a result, my brain now feels swollen, my neck muscles have stiffened into a permanent book reading position, and my vision seems a little blurrier. Oh well, it needed to be done if I was going to be prepared for the 8 hour, 350 question ordeal I endured yesterday. It was an exercise in intellecutal diarrhea, or in a little less disgusting but equally gastrointestinal analogy; an excersise (I can't even spell properly now) in academic bulimia nervosa.... i.e. binging on all that information contained within those pages you see above, and then vomitting it all out on test day.

As a result of my hiatus, my blog assignments have been piling up! So today I'd like to get caught up on a number of tags that I've been meaning to respond to...

First Mel's tag, which was way back in April! Sorry Mel....

1. What are the five blogs you visit when you open your computer?
>>> Mel's blog, Ghee's blog, Tina's blog, Sasha's blog, and my blog of course

2. What browsers do you use?
>>> Mozilla Firefox, I hate IE!

3. What are your top 3 favorite categories in your blog?
>>> Nermal, Travel, and Photography I guess?

4. Pretend that you’re a spammer. What comment will you leave on the blogs that you visit?
>>> hmmmm.... can't stand spammers but since most of the spam I delete from my comments moderation are plugs for other sites, I guess my spam comment would be something to the effect of "nice blog! visit me!"..... actually I don't delete those comments, just the ones that lead to commercial sites...

5. Who are the 7 bloggers that you will tag?
>>> hmmm.... sorry I don't have anybody to tag.

Okay, now for Sasha's tag, sorry it's so late Sasha:

“DoFollow is the latest way to spread link love to your readers – those who deserve it because they have read your post and liked it enough to leave a relevant and meaningful comment. Their comments become links to their pages; links that are counted by Google spiders to improve their rank. ”

These are the instructions: (Start copying here.)

1. Write a short paragraph at the beginning of your post and link back to the blog that put you on the list in the paragraph. This isn’t a suggestion. You need to break up the duplicate content. Someone took the time to add you so the least you can do is give them an extra link back.

2. Copy the list of originals below COMPLETELY and add it to your blog. If you would like a different keyword for your blog then change it when you do your post and it should pass to most blogs with that keyword.

3. Take the adds from the blog that added you and place them in the “Originals” list.

4. Add at least 1 new blog that you KNOW is using the DO FOLLOW plugin to the list in the “My Adds” section. (Add no more than 5!) Let the people you’ve added know, so that they can keep the list going!

My Adds:



Neng aka Sirena
Ju aka The Border aka Juana of Femjo
Keep the Faith
Suncoast Scribe
Blogging Kenneth
My 2 Centavos Worth
Manila Mom
3 Dogs, 3 Pigs and A Family
Cafe Romanza

Don't feel obliged to continue the tag ladies, unless you want to, just wanted to spread the link love to ya!

Finally, Meeyauw's tag, again, sorry it's late:

Here are the rules:
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. (Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names.) Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!

Here are my seven random facts
  1. I have allergic rhinitis.
  2. I'll eat almost anything, or at least try anything once.
  3. I love sushi.
  4. I can't eat dairy products.
  5. I drink way too much coffee.
  6. I just discovered that I love falafel.
  7. I love trees.
Okay! That's three assignments down I've got one more, but I'll save that for tomorrow coz it's about Nermal. I don't really have anybody else to tag, but everybody's free to pick up this tag if they were so inclined. I'm gonna go out and get some fresh air now, but I'll be back....
