Give Me A Weapon

Really is there any funnier or more worthwhile activity for one's birthday than sitting around, eating cheesecake and keeping the cats off the coffee table with a water gun?

No, no there is not.

Apparently my 39th year will be full of the simple pleasures.

Either that or a cat is going to kill me in my sleep tonight.

Only time will tell.

Honestly, I'm going to need to get a mop and clean off the ceiling. You can shoot 3 inches to the side of that damn cat and he'll still gets some serious hang time. Somebody pass the Depends before I ruin the couch. In the words of Joss Whedon, "We don't have cable, we have to make our own fun."*

Thank you all for your good wishes and fabulous suggestions and beautiful posts. You have made the day quite lovely and I am very grateful for that.

*Yeah, I have cable but I'm still a fan of making my own fun.


  1. Happy Birthday, Kizz!! You really know how to party! Enjoy this last year in your thirties. I'm here to tell you forty is pretty good.

    woe, but I am late in the day to wish you a happy birthday. I meant to do it earlier but my job is all, like, sensitive about me being productive. jerks.

    happy birthday!

    Hey Kizz, nothing better than shooting at the cats to unwind from the day. Talk about simple pleasures.

    I'm glad you found the pleasure of the day. Keep finding them. Thanks for the iphoto or photoshop things. They were fun. I liked you birthday, I hope you did too.

  4. There really is no greater fun than shooting cats with water guns. At one point, we had a pump-action water handgun that shot 30 feet, easy. We could shoot cats in the yard when they were least expecting it. Mean? Perhaps, but there isn't much that's funnier...

  5. You know, you really haven't lived until you've used a laser pointer to drive your cat smack dab into the wall. That thumping sound is priceless.

    Not only do you make your own fun, you make fun for others too! Well, not perhaps the cats :-)

    Glad funness and cheesecake was had on the big day!

    Love and giggles for year 39!!!

  7. Next year I need to ask for a laser pointer for my birthday. I wasn't doing it for sport, we were keeping them off the table where there was food and if you've been following along you've seen how that can be disastrous.

    Thanks for scouting 40 for me, Mrs. G!

    I am sorry to be so late to the party, but happy belated to you and I hope yours was a fun-filled and wt cat kind of day. 39 was cool for me and 40 rocked. SO far, 41 kicks ass.
