Steamed up

Well the atmosphere around here is intense. Lynettea needs to practise her haiku sequence for the launch this afternoon. She hasn't chosen something of mine to read. I wonder why.

Spent most of the night sleeping on one of Lynettea's hats on a small table in the lounge room. It wasn't all that comfortable. She was trying to entice me to sleep on a chair in the bedroom, but I chose not too. The bedroom is getting so full with my basket on the floor and now the extra chair. I did sleep in the basket for a few nights over a month ago, before I got the Arthur medication. I gave up sleeping on the bed after I fell out twice and jarred my legs.

Woke up at 6.30 and threw up a large hairball. After that I waited on the dressing table for Lynettea to struggle out of bed. I tend to leap onto the dressing table and throw all the unneccessary papers to the floor. A bit like the end of a ski-run as I leap from the chest of drawers. Lynettea says she is at her wits end. What does that mean? She isn't used to all my pro-active help in tidying up.

I think I will go outside and sit on my upper sundeck for a while.

Dear Diamond,
me feels that me has missed some of your posts, since Me started to use Google reader to follow my friends. It seems that yous needs to take Lynette through some basic training. She is forgetting who does what!
Me sends yous lots of encouragement to continue with the hairballs. They keeps our people in line and one edge wondering when and why the next one will come.
Kisses
Nellie

I think that is terrible that your human does not appreciate all your efforts, Diamond! Hmph, NO gratitude whatsoever - the least she could do would be to read one of your haikus

The Arthur-itis medicine must be making you feel better if you can do all that jumping around. Purrs to Lynettea for a successful launch of your poems book.

I'm not sure what it means that Lynettea is at her wits end, Diamond. So strange that she would be not be more appreciative of your efforts to help with tidying up. Maybe she is just feeling a bit of pressure about the book launch. Please tell her we are sending good thoughts and positive energy for the launch to go well.

Enjoy your time on your sundeck, dear friend. I hope it is peaceful and relaxing.

Oh, I thought you might like this article, about haiku being used on traffic signs in New York City. :)

Ooh! It feels so good to get those nasty furballs out! We know you are going to have a very good day, indeed!
Lots of love your way.

WE have had a look at the New York signpost 'haiku'. We don't think they are really haiku, just five-seven-five syllable poems.
