Scruffy Looking Nerf Herders and Other Topics of Great Importance

First of all, the history channel ran a really great Star Wars documentary which I am watching as I type. I've seen several of these over the years, as Karen is truly a geek-- she's about one step away from dressing up like a wookie and going to the conventions.

Anyway, this one is definitely the best I've seen. It discussed thematic issues, archetypal characters, and connections with politics and culture. In a nutshell it explores the saga as the literary epic which it is. Journalists, literary scholars, film critics, and politicians make commentary throughout.

Speaking of politicians . . .

I don't say many positive things about politicians. However, I would like to say I was impressed with my congressional representative Ron Paul in the presidential debate. He sounded pretty good. I might would even consider voting for him except I'm not registered to vote and he probably won't make it to the "finals".

According to Karen, cats are not allowed to vote in the United States.

Is this true? Or is Karen just telling me this so she doesn't have to drive me to the polling place. I haven't found any evidence on this one way or another.

Now it is time for the Meme:

Before I begin with the assignment, I would like to say that I discovered several blogs with many pictures of naked humans in various positions. Since I am naked most of the time, this nudity does not concern me. But I was surprised to see so many people who opt to go sans clothes, as the humans I hang with wear clothes almost all of the time.

To each his own, I guess.

Anyway, I was tagged by Crabby (see link to the right). She wants me to send out a list of interesting blogs:

Whoever did this has WAY too much time on their hands:
Cats that look like Hitler-- the name says it all

This isn't a blog, but I think this is worthwhile so I'm changing the rules. If you are a fan of the Bridget Jones books, this is Helen Fielding's continuation of the columns, the origin of Bridget if you will. These were published in the Independent in 2005.

Anyway, I am tired, so I will finish this after my nap.

Regarding your statement about cats voting, you are aware aren't you that most of the Cat Blogosphere is voting for the Chey/Derby ticket? Cheysuli is working on getting things arranged so all of us cats can vote. Go to my page and in the sidebar is a link to the campaign website.

We need to see a picture of you!

I too wish cats could vote. Cats are very good at knowing when to mind one's own business, unlike most politicians. I would trust the Cat vote for president more than the general public's.

Thanks for the info. I'll check it out and let you know my thoughts.

About the pictures: I'm about at my wits end with Karen over this. She has taken them, but not gotten them to the computer. It is incredibly frustrating. But I'm working on it . . .

Dear Secret Admirerer--

Thanks for the Ron Paul links. I will check them out.

That is so something Karen would say, at least the part about politicians getting into her business.

But she doesn't trust my judgement, as I am "self-involved", or at least that's what she called me yesterday when I bit Sadie on the neck to get her out of my chair. Karen doesn't think violence is necessary when it comes to seating arrangements. I think violence is a necessary evil in all cases when you are the alpha cat.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
