Blistex and Hand Jobs and Geminis, Oh My
I don't know why I paraphrased The Wizard of Oz in this post title because I hate that movie. Okay, open invitation for all you Wizard of Oz lovers to attack me. Come on, bring it on...

My cat loves Blistex, I've just discovered. No wonder I go through so many tubes, because it can't just be my own personal addiction that accounts for that. Sputnik also eats soap (prefers Ivory over Dove) and shaving cream. And she licks all the sweat off your arms when you are lying on the floor stretching post-exercise. Maybe she's lacking some mineral in her diet.

My brother-in-law (who's an English teacher!) couldn't think of the word manicure when he was telling his daughters what he was getting their mom for Christmas last year, so he told them he was getting her a handjob! HA!!

While we're on the topic, check out Pitt's hand job pic (Oct 19).

I don't usually like to talk about work here, but last year The Nature of Things filmed a documentary about our acute stroke program, which has been nominated for a Gemini. I'm not personally in it because this dealt with patient care and I'm in basic science research, but it's my team that's profiled.

1 nomination for:
The Nature of Things: Clot Busters
Clot Busters chronicles three intense weeks with the rapid response team at the Alberta Foothills Hospital Stroke Unit. A rare glimpse into the life and death dilemmas of twenty-first century medicine.

Handjob - that is FUCKING hysterical! I also love 'ol Sput -what a purty kitty! Now that I think about it, my cats eat some weird shit too....but none of my chapsticks have been sabotaged at this point.

She is purty isn't she? And she knows it. I'd love to see some pics of your cats sometime.

Sputnik? Oh that's so great, what a wonderful name for a kittykat. i'm not a cat person but i love animals. except insects. but they're not really animals anyway.

i would totally freak out if one of my relatives told me i needed a handjob as a gift. i'd be, like, um, yo... giving or receiving? their answer would determine the severity of the right hook i'd deliver, heh.

sorta. i mean it would be good either way. i didn't say that.

If I put deodorant on after showering before going to bed, my cat Cossette will wake me up licking my underarm, which really tickles.

So I gather from what you are all saying is that all pets are weird. That's oddly comforting.
