the jury is in…

… and, yes, apparently I DO suck.

The evidence:
1. Offending people by simply existing.

Me, in my defense: Granted bitchiness is one of my dominant personality traits; however, I generally have to try (a little) to piss people off. Therefore I’m blaming the inability of the internet to effectively transmit my sarcastic (yes, another trait) tendencies.
2. Crappy book recommendations.

Me, in my defense: Well, I liked it. Yeah okay, maybe I should have warned Jenre that people usually take anything I say/recommend with a pinch of salt… in fact, what the hell was she thinking listening to me anyway?! I’m crap at giving advice.
3. Being a bad mother.

Me, in my defense: I got nothing. Why??

This morning I woke to discover the remains of a straw necklace (see an eg below) which my baby cousin made me some years ago. Because I don’t actually recall seeing it for a while (ie before Christmas) it appears the boy kittens have been systematically eating it for some time.

the necklace (although mine was a very pretty blue and yellow done in my football team colours)

Picture me this morning with a torch in my hand peering under couches and the other dark and dusty places trying to find pieces of said necklace, and then attempting to calculate exactly how much was missing.

the few pieces of straw found (my prized Totoro pencil indicates size)

Yeah, you may well laugh, but now OCD Kris is obsessively watching the litter tray to make sure all is alright with little tummies.

I think I just failed the parenting test in a major way. No wonder I rarely get asked to babysit the multitude of honoraries!

    Kris,Me thinks u are being too hard on yourself. I know what recommedation u are talking about..sometimes a recommendation works for some, some time it doesnt..Sarcasm and wit can be hard to decipher via the internet..lord knows I have had so many messages misconstrued by email

  2. Jenre says:

    Oh No! Don’t feel bad. I liked the book, I really did. I just wasn’t sure I liked it as a paranormal! :).Hey, I’m reading “Bound by Love” by TA Chase at the moment ‘cos you said it was good, and I’m loving it!You obviously need a big hug…*huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuug*

  3. Kris says:

    *sniff, sniff* Thank you both, especially for the hug.Srsly though, I’m not feeling that bad. I think what I’m suffering from is my first mid-work week slump where I’m sure everyone and everything is out to get me and make my life hell. In times of such paranoia I tend to make fun of myself. Such is the extent of my sophomoric humour that I never fail to crack myself up. *g*

  4. Kris says:

    PS – Thank GOD you are liking ‘Bound by Love’, J. I am REDEEMED! *wiping tears from eyes cos is just too, too funny*

  5. Jenre says:

    I meant to say that the note cracked me up! If I tried to do that to my bad-tempered mog I’d lose a finger or two in the process.

  6. Kris says:

    At the time, I was really surprised Feliks didn’t wake up and pounce… on the paper. He has a kind of a ‘thing’ for the stuff.It was only later I realised both he and Boris were prob’ly sleeping off straw-eating binges.

  7. Tracy says:

    I have to remind myself that living in different countries makes a difference in our speech. You said you were under the couch with a torch and I’m thinking damn – she was serious – she’s torching her house (thinking blow torch) lol Silly me.And isn’t it fun being a bitch? I love it! 🙂

  8. Kris says:

    LOL. Maybe I need to think about offering translations.Why Tracy I don’t know what you mean about being a bitch? *snort* Thank God I never make this a New Year’s resolution. I would fail within a day.
