Everyone’s a Critic 2.0 / I’m THIS Close

22 Feb
If I don’t watch it, this could be me.
So… I recently watched the HBO movie Grey Gardens. I’ve seen the original documentary from the 1970s and the people on ‘Hoarders’ don’t got nothin’ on the Beales!!

I really enjoyed the movie because it gave me a better understanding of the two women from the documentary and their true stories…not just their own idealized versions. Jessica Lange was very good as Big Edie and doesn’t have a bad voice either. But I felt Drew Barrymore was the best in this role, probably the best thing she’s ever done. She was dead on as Little Edie and even trained her mouth to talk like a normal person and not how she normally speaks, out of one side of her mouth, like Bette Davis after her stroke!

After watching that movie I found a super cute video of cats making biscuits. The cat getting the rub down is the same breed as  Mr. Bojangles.
After I watched it I looked up the reason why cats do that. Let me share:
Q: Why do cats knead?
A: That loud purring followed by the sharpening of claws on some soft spot is called “milk-treading.” A nursing kitten instinctively uses his paws to draw out milk, gently pushing on his mother’s stomach to increase the milk flow. When older cats behave this way, it’s a good sign that they’re happy, content, and probably recalling their kitten hood.
The fact that I spent that much time looking up cute cat videos and cat information is a little scary to me. I don’t want to become the crazy cat lady in my 20s and when I only have one cat. I hate to think how nutty I’ll be if I get more!!
Then I looked on my iPhone. I have 81 photos on there, 32 are of Bojangles. If I die in a car wreck and someone finds my phone they will think, “Whoa, that chick was really into her cat.” Here are some samples to prove it.
Covering his eyes from the sun coming in so he can keep napping.
That’s right, I’m knitting with my cat. I’m doomed.
I understand he’s super cute and awesome but I need more photos of other things or else I’m on the road to Grey Gardens, 30 cats and a giant raccoon!

    >Why do I see 2 posts in a row of the same thing? Is this some kind of trick?
