Ember the cat is redecorating.

Ember's kitty "house" is a cube with entrance holes on 3 sides. Two of the entrance holes have detachable tunnels tucked into them at right angles. She loves to take naps in the tunnels, or watch me from inside for the chance to ambush my legs.

The house and tunnels are located just inside the living room, near the entrance to the kitchen.

Ember was disturbed about my accidental interference with her personal housing unit and decided to do something about it. I use an extension cord to keep my phone.charged while browsing online , typing at DU, etc. Then I can move from kitchen table to desk or living room couch. But the cord slides under the tunnels when I pass from kitchen to living room, making an uncomfortable lump under the tunnel floors.

First she tried swatting and scratching the cord through the tunnel floor, but it would not budge. So, from inside one tunnel, she pawed the tunnel floor until she had dragged the entire apparatus, house and 2 tunnels, into the middle of the kitchen floor, away from the cord outlet. Then she crawled inside and stared at me. She looked smugly satisfied.

OK. It's HER tunnels and kitty house. And the apartment is her home, too. So I ignored the inconvenience of stepping around or over the setup in the kitchen.

But....I had to move it to wash the kitchen floor. Ember was not happy. She tugged one of the tunnels loose, dragged it across the floor, and plunked herself down inside it, leaving the kitty house and other tunnel several feet away. She can't re-attach it, of course, so now my dilemma is whether to do that for her or leave it as it is. I don't want to disturb her notion of fen shui.

Stephen Colbert has such a way with words.

Just watched a recent Colbert monologue in which he said the 4 Federal prosecutors who resigned from the Stone case had trouble finding the exit. Barr had relocated DOJ "up Trump's ass."

Earlier in the monologue he showed Trump using the first letters of 4 corporations to spell MAGA.

Colbert demonstrated that you can rearrange "Donald Trump" to spell "Plod Turd Man."

Reminiscent of Tom Marvolo Riddle and Lord Voldemort.

Lord Turd Man.

Thanks for the hearts, whoever you are.

Kinda surprised me since I've only been here a few months. Appreciate the thoughtfulness.

Rush Limbaugh has advanced stage lung cancer.

Reported by NPR and NY Daily News.

The decent thing to do regarding any human being with a diagnosis like that is to wish them well. I can't bring myself to do that. I will withhold some of the more vile thoughts that come to mind.

Isn't he the one who mocked Michael J Fox for his parkinson's? When Fox appeared in public on behalf of stem cell research without his meds so people could see the effects of the disorder, Limbaugh accused him of faking it and made fun of him.

How tempting to let Limbaugh know how public cruelty feels.
