Happy Mew Year!


We’re getting ready for 2018! …

Cynthia:  Hey Kitty Kitties! I’ve got my New Years resolutions all ready.

Marcy (sarcastically) Enlighten us. Please.


Cynthia:  This year I’m going to do a “Dry January” which means no alcohol so as to improve liver function, sleep cycles, and energy. I am determined to cut out sugar and afternoon coffee too. I’m hoping these three steps will help me change my status from a “night owl” to an “early bird”. I’d really like that. Society is not nice to us “night owls” and I really want to increase my productivity this year.

Marcy:  So you’re buying into the whole “early bird gets the worm” propaganda.

Cynthia:  Well… yes. So – what’s your New Years resolution, Marcy?

Marcy:  I’ve decided to be trendy this year. I’m going to be Ultra Violent.

Cynthia (confused):  Ultra … violent?

Marcy:  Yeah. It’s Pantone’s idea and it’s brilliant.

Marcy flashes her claws as Cynthia sits puzzled.

Cynthia:  Oh. You mean Ultra Violet.

Marcy:  Yup. Ultra Violent.

Cynthia:  Violet.

Marcy:  Yes. Violent.

Cynthia:  No. Marcy. It’s a color – Ultra … Violet. It’s Pantone’s color of the year for 2018.

Marcy:  What’s the color?

Cynthia:  It’s like a dark but vibrant purple.

Marcy:  Exactly. The color of a bruise. Ultra … Violent.

Cynthia sighs and gives up.

Cynthia:  What will you be doing for your New Years rez, P?

penelope kitten (squeaking):  breakfast. lunch. and dinner.

Cynthia:  What?!

penelope kitten:  oh. and snacks.

Cynthia (incredulous) So you mean to tell me that Marcy is going to be more violent and Penelope is going to eat more food?

penelope kitten:  yeah yeah.

Marcy: Yeah. It’s going to be a great two-oh-one-eight.

Cynthia reaches for the whiskey, chocolate chip cookies, and Netflix.



Happy Mew Year, Lovely Readers!

We wish you a truly wonderful 2018!

(whether you want to do more of the same or change things up!)

xo and meow and squeak,

cynthia + marcy + penelope kitten

    Cynthia, I admire your resolve to improve your nearly perfect self. Kitties, you should follow Cynthia’s example rather than becoming meaner and fatter.
    I do not make resolutions, thus there’s no possibility of failure.

      That’s the best new year resolution ever!!

      I literally LOL when I read about meaner and fatter! Nice way to talk about your grandkitties, LOL!

      Cynthia, keep us posted on how you feel during the Dry January resolution. Good sleep is so important! Recalling your success with your blood sugar level change (did that all end up ok?), I know you can do it!

        Happy New Year, Vik! Ahhh… thanks for asking! And, yes, after two years I was able to get my A1C down so that I am no longer pre-diabetic. I’m still on the borderline so hoping the alcohol abstinence will help too. I’ll do a post on the Dry January after it’s over. Now I am REALLY committed. Aaaackkk!!!

    Haha! Marcy is the best! And I think that’s a booooooold color choice from Pantone for 2018. I’ll be curious to see how it translates into fashion. I think a chiffon dress with flutter sleeves in that color would be gorgeous, but I’m having a hard time imagining handbags and shoes. We shall see!

    Good luck on your no afternoon coffee/no alcohol challenge! Besides water, I really only drink coffee and red wine, so that would be a tough one for me. Those 3 pm and evening coffees feel so necessary, but I agree that they mess with my sleep. Maybe it’s time to start rotating in some decaf. Happy New Year!

      Ohhhh… the dress you described would be so pretty. But, other then that I’m with you in that I can’t see it translating to other fashion.
      Happy New Year, Liz!
