AGES ago, and by that I mean YEARS, some Christmas I was struck by all the Christmas cards depicting the whole lion-lying-down-with-the-lamb thingie. Which is all very well and good. But every time I see one of those, I am reminded of the amusing Woody Allen quote: "The lion and the lamb may lie down together, but the lamb won't get much sleep."
So at some point I decided to paint my OWN lion and lamb card, to illustrate the Woody Allen quote. But when I was done, I found that--while I like him (much better than the lion, by the way; the lion kinda sucks)--my lamb did not look at all frightened, and hence he did not really depict worried insomnia at all. So instead I ended up captioning it with another sheep-inspired truism that I felt DID capture the essence of Mojo's Little Lamb: MORE Mojo! »

Okay, so right now Mojo is not thinking too kindly of ANY industry involved in heating her house. And in the midst of Mojo's heartbreaking Stove Day Fiasco, she gets a postcard in the mail from the oil company saying they're going to come clean and maintain her furnace on such-and-such a day, like a week from now.
And Mojo, speaking from the pain of heartbreak, gets a terrible, terrible idea. Of course, as we all know Mojo has her boundless love for all of God's creatures. But here she is in a nadir, a twilight of the spirit, one of those pivotal times in life where a naive innocent might get seduced by the dark side.
In other words, the thought crossed my mind to not change the cat box for the whole week leading up to when the poor oil guy comes to work on the furnace.
The cat box is about five feet from the furnace. Ratty's a big cat. He also has a rather annoying tendency to not bury things after he's done. In short, if I keep thinking along these lines of cruelty, the poor furnace guy is in for a world of hurt. At least where his nose is concerned.
I won't do it. It's not the poor furnace guy's fault oil prices are where they are and Mojo is stoveless. But the thought DID cross my mind.

Did I miss the local news story that advocates handing out wind chimes to the unemployed? Must have been right after the Seinfeld people handed out puffy pirate shirts to the homeless. Well, my gain is your extra-special gain, assuming you like wind chimes. And since the box claims they manufacture "the world's favorite windchime" (sic), if you like wind chimes chances are you'll REALLY like these. MORE Mojo! »
