Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

My apologies fellow animal lovers! You know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men. Anyway, better late than never.

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Animals - we don’t deserve them. But I’m so glad they keep loving us in spite of ourselves. Here they are again to brighten our day!

Emmer Apology

I unshared it. I apologize for being insensitive. I was pretty angry with Lindsey Graham but you’re right about the post. 

Rosenstein Out?

The AP is reporting he’s on his way to the White House to be fired. Bloomberg says he’s tendered his resignation and it’s been accepted. No official statement from the WH.

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Happy Equinox. Those of us in the Northern Hemisphere are celebrating Mabon. It’s finally Fall!

Crying Crying

I don’t cry very much. I think the last time was months ago when I spontaneously burst into tears watching Baskets. I come close sometimes but then it just sort of stops. It’s been suggested to me that this lack of affect is unhealthy. So I’m curious, do you cry GT? What sort of things make you cry? Are you…

Play Something For Me! Play Something For Me!

It doesn’t have to be new. Show some love for somebody you think isn’t getting the attention they deserve. Or introduce me to a regional band. I know a lot of you live in areas with big music scenes. I like all genres.

It’s the Back To School Edition! Here at Fur Face Academy we take education very seriously. We have the cutest, smartest, most talented, animals in the Kinjaverse. Please enroll your furry, feathery, finny, and scaly, friends today!

Dog Days of Summer Dog Days of Summer

Another scorching day. For adults summer is full of sweaty commutes, high electric bills and short tempers. But remember when you were a kid and the long, hot days meant freedom? And even the sweltering nights were magical with meteor showers?

Fur Face Friday! Fur Face Friday!

Welcome fellow fur fanatics to my inaugural edition of Fur Face Friday! I’m seated in the luxurious FFF office suite wearing the ceremonial Snout Selector sash and tiara, sipping champagne, and finalizing this week’s choices.

Chris Hardwick Returns to AMC

AMC claims to have investigated the accusations against Hardwick. The official statement does not say if they find Chloe Dykstra’s allegations credible or not, but that returning him to work is appropriate. I for one, will never be able to look at his smug face again. 

Justice For Victor Jara! Justice For Victor Jara!

45 years after the torture and murder of activist Victor Jara in Chile, 9 retired soldiers have been convicted of the killing. If you don’t know Victor’s story, or the role the U.S. played in the overthrow of democratically elected President Allende take a few moments out of your Independence Day to Google him.


This is Mitch McConnell’s finest hour. May he burn in hell.

Boo Hoo - Updated

Last night Sarah Hucksterbee Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, VA. Sanders tweeted

Good afternoon fellow animal lovers! I’m delighted to be your Summer Vacation Substitute Snout Selector for this week’s FFF. Choosing between all the adorable fur, fluff and feathers is even harder than I thought. If I didn’t include your pets, it’s not because I didn’t find them squee worthy. I just didn’t want to be…

Thank You Thank You

I wanted to thank everyone personally for their comments on the Morning OT Post but Kinja wouldn’t let me. (Kinja! Shakes fist!) The support I receive here on GT means the world to me. And I believe it has played a big role in my ongoing recovery. I don’t know if I would even have gone back into therapy without the…

RIP Tom Wolfe RIP Tom Wolfe

I had some issues with Wolfe politically, but damn, the man could tell a story. The Right Stuff is one of my favorite books. Wolfe passed away yesterday at the age of 88.

Run For The Roses Run For The Roses

It’s Derby Day. In my neck of the woods that’s bigger than the 4th of July. Mr P had to go out of town unexpectedly, so this year I’ll be watching at home by myself. I’ll get a Hot Brown to go, maybe a piece of Derby Pie and sip on some Makers Mark. What, if anything, will you do to enjoy The Most Exciting Two Minutes…

New Neighbors New Neighbors

I have new next door neighbors, they moved in today. What’s the current etiquette on meeting new neighbors? Is taking them baked goods still a thing? How long do you wait to knock on their door? We like being friendly with the neighbors but not too friendly. How have you struck the right note when new people moved in?…
