It's been a crazy week. If the power outage, contaminated water, and… - cellophane
the story of an invisible girl

It's been a crazy week. If the power outage, contaminated water, and lack of fresh foods weren't enough, my company got hit by a virus yesterday. My PC's been down all morning getting fixed. It just came up, and I have tons of work to do, so I should definitely not be posting to my journal.

But I wanted to save one thing before I rush off to work. I was reading a newsletter while I wanted for my computer to heal, and it had a little quotation at the top of the page.

Apparently I am dyslexic, because what I read was:

Without loving cats, loving words are meaningless.

What it really said was: "Without loving acts, loving words are meaningless." But I like my version better.

Wise words (on both counts). And particularly significant to my own situation (the acts one. The cats bit . . . not so much)

Well, loving cats are always nice of course. But I can see how the "original" version might have more significance. (:

Oh, funny! Were you thinking of "loving" as an adjective? As in, affectionate cats? I had it as a verb. Ha! Now it's way funnier.

heehee! Yes, it was an adjective when I read it...although it works both ways! *grin*

I agree, your version is much more fun.

Re: fun with misfiring synapses

Yeah, it amused me greatly when I realized it!

I hope that all is finally running normal for you on this hump-day...

Re: fun with misfiring synapses

Yes, I think it is....at least mostly back to normal. Viruses erased, and we're allowed to drink the water again. Stores are slowly being replenished with food....

Hee hee. Somehow that makes me think of this:

When you are alone you are the cat, you are the phone
You are an animal
The words I'm singing now
Mean nothing more than meow to an animal
- "Don't Let's Start", They Might Be Giants

Wake up, and smell the cat food
In your bank account....
