Kathryn: “WHY do I always wind up trying to respond to comments…and visit my blogbuds and comment over there after 9pm…when everybody who’s anybody is online? This stupid freakin’ computer is slower than the waiting time to speak to the doctor’s office on a Monday morning after a three-day weekend….”

Metro (Wonderdog): “Snort! Pssh……S-N-O-R-E…….”

Kathryn: “Hel-lo? Is anybody listening to me? Now I don’t know what to do. Do I forgo the last post of the week? Do I create a wickedly amusing post now and comment my arse off tomorrow when half the world is still slumbering? Anyone??”

Connor: (Voice from somewhere down the hall) “Are you calling meeee? I think the dog peed on the landing again! Uh….never mind….it’s water…I think…”

Taylor: (Voice from somewhere on another level entirely) “Whaaat? What do you WANT? I CAN’T HEAR YOU WITH MY iPOD ON!!!”





Connor: “Mommmmm!”



Kathryn: “WHAT??”

Taylor: “WHAT??”

Connor: “WHAT??”

Kathryn: “Screw this! I’m jumping in the shower!”

Connor: “I’m having one of my birthday browni- - -….MOMMMMM!!!!!”


Downstairs door *SLAM!!!*

Meanwhile, our super-alert guard-dog extraordinaire is at the ready…subtly taking in the entire sordid scene with only the briefest twitch of one eye…(notice the way his ears have flopped this way and that…he does this himself, you know…all the better to hear if any food references are being made…):

We should all feel this comfy.

(Speaking with a heavy Italian Mafioso-accent) “Right now, this computer’s giving me nothing but agida. (Gee. Word doesn’t know “agida”?? Fuggetaboutit.) On second thought, I’m a-gonna do a nice, hot soak…and then call it a night. I’ll catch up with my peeps in da A.M.”

~Last night, I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and thought to myself, “Where the hell is the ceiling?~

Sleep well, my friends!

I love the "where the hell is the ceiling" thing... Cracks me up every time :-)

Runnergirl said...

Lol!!! I could almost picture it! Metro is adorable. I can't wait til I can have a dog (the sooner we get this business making a decent amount of money the better!!!)

Tina said...

You are fabulous, you know that don't you? I'm picturing a sitcom of your life. Why don't the agents/publishers/network execs read our blogs? I'm sure it's only a matter of time..

Lmao, that is hilarious, I never would have thought of that.

I see the communication in Kathrynville is improving, the only creature who understands what's really going on is Metro and he really doesn't give a hoot unless it involves food. Perhaps Clinton could've made sense of the situation.


KT said...

Well, good morning you! Nice rest? Love metro the wonderdog, he's so smart, huh? Leaving his ears open like that at the
When i lived in my house that's how it was ALL the time. always yelling and shouting and whatnot. Now, it's so quiet with just the hubs, S, and Macchiato....sometimes i yell just to make things

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

Love it. Can I have your dog? He's adorable.

TC said...

I loved the ceiling line too, had to read it twice. Your dog looks like mine, maybe some hound genes in there too and mine is a bichon!! LOL

Tinkerschnitzel said...

lol You really crack me up! And I definately needed a good laugh this morning.

Jen T said...

Haha, not the birthday brownies! Reminds me of when I used to live at home with my brothers...

Alicia said...

I love Metro! He's so darned cute! Hey you know, when you're up at's only like 7pm for me. So I'm up, I'm around, you can hollar at me. Well not at me, but to me. I got enuf people hollaring at me throughout the day.

Heather said...

Oh, Metro! He is definately doing it right!

all the better to hear if any food references are being made! LMBO!!!

Have a good soak!

carissajaded said...

Can I please hang out at your house just once!? I don't think my life would be complete without it... if you don't want to hang out with me, then can I at least hang with Metro?

Oddyoddyo13 said...

As always, you never fail to entertain.

KT said...

Kathryn!!!! you REACHED 600 FOLLOWERS!!!!!! remember, when you were at a measly 595??? Remember when you shamelessly asked all of us to get people to follow you! LOOK!!!! it paid off. YAY!!!!

wendy said...

Well at least Metro was comfy =) Hope you and yours have a super weekend!

Spot said...

Taylor ate the last of Connor's birthday brownies?! That's reprehensible!

At least your boys don't sit in the same room with you. Seriously, I'm the one wearing the ipod so I can tune them all out!


Lauren said...

-Lauren perks up- Brownies?! I mean... yeah... that was probably not the right thing to do.

Meeko seems to be a lot like Metro. Hmmm... I bet he keeps his ears that way so they don't wrinkle. Nothing worse than having to iron your ears.

Ron said...



Hey listen, you and I are experiencing the SAME issues with our computers. OMG...this computer was giving me MAJOR agida yesterday that I thought I was going to pick it up and throw it through the window. Talk about slow. It froze like THREE TIMES while googling stuff. I finally got so mad that I turned it off without even shutting it down first, which took another 30 minutes for it to turn on again.

Hey listen, try doing what I do...I usually do most of my commenting when no one else is online - midnight til 2 am!

Of course I end up looking like Metro in the mornings - HA!

Fabu post, Kathryn The Great!


kathryn said...

Gillian: Right back at-cha!

KellyGrrl: Funny, right? I couldn't resist...'specially since I spent a lot of time last night staring at the ceiling instead of sleeping! (Insomnia, for the record...not the other thing...!)

Runnergirl: Oh, yeah...keep those priorities straight, honey. You'll have your furry little love for a whole lot of years, God willing!

Tina: I hear that! It's figuring out how to get noticed. I spent the first 18 months blogging wondering when I'd be "discovered". Then I realized just how many blogs are out there! I DO believe that someday there will be BlogAwards like People's Choice Awards. You betcha.

Jerry said...

'agida'! That word, and by extension, this blog, caused me all sorts of 'agida'.

After reading your entry I simply wanted to slip away and type 'agida' in Google to learn something new (which is a bit of a joke since I can't even remember old things). Every time I tried to navigate to Google (or anywhere), I would get the odd message telling me that if I exited I would lose unsaved data. Fine. But it wouldn't let me go. Somehow the magnetism of your blog sucked me right in and wouldn't let me go. I tried to 'X' out, but no go. 'Cntrl-Alt-Del' wouldn't work because 'a response is expected'.

Now Kathryn -- you not only invite me to read and chain me to your site but then you demand a response! That is a pretty slick trick.

Well -- I fooled you. I discovered an odd looking symbol on my screen that I have never noticed before which allows me to 'open up a new tab'. Aha!

So now after putting me through this agida, I now know what agida means.

Now will you let me go? What more do you want? I promise to return often -- to say nice things...look I gotta' go. My wife is calling me. I can't tell I am stuck here with Kathryn...

Jerry said...

or..the alternate explanation is that I don't know what I am doing.

Nah! That's too discouraging.

Unknown said...

Where the hell is the ceiling?! I laughed hard to that one. Metro is adorable.Oh Kat, you have such an amazing personality.

Momiji chan said...

hahahaha that's crazy im would have been like daniel:"going to amy's cant help bye" matthew:"im playing something hang on" jason:" i think im going home this is why i got my own house" me:" does this milk taste sour?"(smells it and makes face ) i think so who bought these grocery's it was last week when we last had any hello? anyone? ugh no one listens" thats uselly how are gathering of family is like yours are so normal i envy you haha

Jasofme said...

I have not been here for awhile but every time I seem to wander over you always make me laugh. My BF wanted to know what I was laughing about so I read him your post.. LOL to funny. Thanks for the laugh I sure needed it tonight!!

Heather said...

Just wanted to let you know you have an award waiting for you over at my place Monday morning.

kathryn said...

Fierce: Yes, we all communicate extremely EFFECTIVELY!! Hey...everyone has their own way, right??

KT: HA! There's advantages and disadvantages to yelling and stomping (another thing I'm known to do to get Taylor's attention). Sometimes we need MORE of the quiet!

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt: You may BORROW Metro....'cause I'm a big believer in sharing the looove...and he makes you feel all warm and furry inside. Just don't feed him anything GOOD, or he'll never want to come back to ME.

kathryn said...

TC: I can't take credit for the "ceiling line"...(that's why it was in quotes) but I do love it! FYI: Metro's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Bichon's are so cute!

Tinkerschnitzel: Aw. Thanks! Glad I could deliver, sweetie!

lifelove'n'wine: Hey sweetie!! Oh, I'm sure you hardly ever got to EAT with brothers!

kathryn said...

Alicia: Ha! So, I can just text or email you ALL IN UPPER CASE??? That's pretty much the same as yelling. The idea around here is to simply be heard!

Heather: Thanks, sweetie! Yeah, Metro doesn't wanna get up unless he HAS it pays to listen for specific words that might mean food!

carissajaded: You can come and hang out with us anytime! You can randomly block out certain sounds, right? It's the only way to survive here!

kathryn said...

Oddyoddyo13: Thank you, sweetie. I can say the same about you!

KT: I KNOW! I'd hit 599...then back off to 598, then 595, then 598 again...I finally just let it goooo. And then, it happened! I'm hovering...I'm happy!

Wendy Blum: Thanks, sweetie! I hope you've had a great weekend as well.

kathryn said...

Spot: I KNOW. I'll have to make Connor another batch of brownies. And no...we all scatter in my's everyone for themselves!

Lauren: It's just as well you weren't here, or Taylor probably would have blamed it on YOU! Wrinkled ears!? HA! Now, I'll think of THAT every time I look at Metro's ears...

kathryn said...

RON! HA! Midnight to 2am?!? Are you completely INSANE?? Is THAT how you manage to get it all in? You just never sleep???

What's the deal with our computers lately, Ron? I'm gettin' all discombobulated with it makes things take toooo long.

I think we need to get AWAY. Agreed?

kathryn said...

Jerry: HA! You had me ROARING with this comment! Oh, you POOR THING! What have I DONE to you?? I mean, I've often considered locking people in but YIKES...I didn't think it was really possible! So, my agida post truly gave you agida! Okay. Since you've given me a serious laugh for the day, you may go now. :-)

kathryn said...

Jerry: Nah! Your alternate explanation can't possibly be it. It must've been my blog holding you hostage!

Lily Johnson: Aw, thanks sweetie! It's so nice to hear!

saku chan: You think my fam is normal? Seriously? I mean, what does normal even mean??

kathryn said...

jasofme: Aw, I'm glad I could make you laugh, sweetie! I hope things improve for you soon...I know so many ppl who are struggling with things in life these days...

Heather: Thanks so much sweetie! I'm on my way!

Pratik Gupta said...

Bow to thee dog!!!

Momiji chan said...

well normal is having a normal conversation with your family and not shouting at them haha

kathryn said...

Pratik Gupta: Metro would respond, but that would require his rising from his throne...and he says, "No can do." Ah, well!

kathryn said...

saku chan: Well, maybe if you're shouting WITH your fam and not AT them...that should be better, right?
