The Infinite Ramblings of April Compo

The Infinite Ramblings of April Compo

This world will not last forever. I just let the outdoor cat into the house. She is seven to eight years old. I loved her since she was mere hours old when I found out she was born on our back porch. It seems like such a long time ago, her mother was also our cat named Penguin. She had five kittens: Captain Falcon, Alex, Cupcake, Pooty, and the one I chose to keep, my favorite kitten. I named her Favorite. She is an excellent mouser and very lean and muscular. The mouse she recently killed was devoured by ants in the front yard. The skeleton was cool. Then the rain washed it away I assume. I can't imagine not existing, I really wish I could.

 Naomi decided it would be a good idea to carry her little purse with her teeth the entire time the cat was in the house. She thought it would be cat-like and make the cat comfortable around her. I guess.

Soul Mate

The first thing I told my husband (before we met) was: "You're my soul mate." No, I don't believe in "soul mates", but I had a couple of drinks in me and the world was a ball of butter and this guy behind me made me laugh. Badda boom badda bing. He couldn't help but fall in love with me either. I think it's a pretty good sign when both of you think you are the winner.
I killed a big red velvet ant aka "cow killer" with a stick today. The exoskeleton was so hard! But I couldn't have it running around killing cows.

What's Today's Date?


My child just ate her first hot dog... it's a sad day.

 But we did hang out at this sweet playground earlier.
I'm really thirsty!

It's Mushy

It has been raining a butt-load around here. Strange things start to pop up overnight...
Speaking of butt-load, check out THIS mushroom (above). Is it edible?
Then you've got your dreidel variety. With optional stripey cat...
your ordinary Disney cartoon-mouse umbrella variety. All of these things are within ten feet of each other in our yard. And last, but not prettiest...
Kind of like a Spanish Dancer fish mixed with fake vomit. I'm going to my grandma's house tonight... I should return that book I borrowed from her 15 years ago.

Being Informative

I just ate THEE best onion rings. Simple, simple onion rings. Slice 'em, flour 'em, batter 'em, bread crumb 'em, fry 'em, eat 'em, digest 'em, poop 'em, eat 'em again (do NOT really eat poop). Burger King has a delicious onion ring dipping sauce, much like that which is served with the "Bloomin' Onion" of Outback Steakhouse, or the "Awesome Blossom" of Chili's. Ah, the humble onion, if you don't like it perhaps you need medication. I like Christian Bale's Batman voice. I admit it!
