In my previous post I realized that the description of my cat can be taken as a bigotted slur. I'll quote myself so you don't have to scroll down. You may thank me for saving you some scroll wheel carpal tunnel.
"Putting the couches in different spots has confused my cat. I don't expect much out of him, he's a dumb gay cat."
The slur presented here is that I claim my cat is dumb. He could very well be a very intelligent cat but he's so lazy who'd know? I've insulted the dumb folk out there. I apologize for that.
Saying that my cat is gay isn't a slur. That's undisputed truth. My tomcat likes other tomcats. He likes likes tomcats. All last week he yowled by the sliding glass door in the middle of the night because his favorite siamese boyfriend was prancing about our backyard. No, I'm not letting you out you dumb cat, you'll wake the neighbors and then they'll throw their beer cans in the backyard.
Yesterday I got a wild hair and rearranged my furniture. All by myself. I've got muscles...grrr!
When you rearrange the furniture and all the damned things that require electricity, you have to carefully plan where to put your decor. Proximity to outlets is of the upmost priority. Afterall, you can't watch The Price is Right when you haven't got an outlet to plug the TV into.
You can't just plug in the TV either. You have to plug in the VCR, DVD, Direct TV receiver, the surround sound system and a lamp. This is why it's necessary for the conscientious housewife to have several of February's Bestest Housewifely Doodad.
Note the three prong receivers. Two prong receivers are for wimps.
I've coddled my inexpensive Wallyworld variety electronics with surge protection as well as extended my electrical outlet oomph! (Hey now, no "A Christmas Story" words of warning! I won't plug in too much stuff at once! I have batteries for the really important appliances.)
Powerstrips come in several bland colors, load capabilities and price ranges. Mine have little hooky thingies on the back so I can hang them securely on my wall. This makes plugging stuff in behind furniture a little less headachey.
Thank you powerstrip, I like you, I really like you.
