…furry meets steampunk
Watched Heroes last night. Pretty darned good and it had just enough strangness and connectivity between the characters to be cool. But then, I thought Surface was kinda cool last year (in spite of it’s terrible twisting of science) and they pulled the plug on it after 15 episodes. We’ll see how long Heroes lasts.
On the other hand, last week I watched part of Smith with Grace and was totally and irrevocably turned off by the fact that the supposed “master thieves” carried guns. Fucking assault rifles, in fact. I suppose it can be chalked up to the utterly classless “gangster lifestyle” that is all over the various entertainment media. Still, I found it disgusting and I hope the show gets cancelled soon. No true thief, especially an art thief as in the show, would ever pack heat on a job.
And now, the final entry for Dogs & Cats Living Together Week. Starting tomorrow…and for the next two weeks…it’s Average Joe Week. And, since I’m not sure of my internet connectivity while I’m in Hawaii, next Monday I’ll be posting a whole weeks worth of characters. Hey, it’s still 365 characters in 365 days, bub!
365 Days, 365 Characters
About this character: Any pet owner will tell you that dogs & cats are, by turns, cute, stupid, smart, loving, infuriating, disgusting, goofy, hilarious, stubborn and sweet. Today’s characters are mostly goofy and stupid.
#49: Weenie and Bill
Main Trait (Weenie): Doesn’t feel much pain
Main Trait (Bill): Too dumb to feel fear
Weenie is a fat female Miniature Dachshund and Bill is a scroungy looking male cat of indeterminate breed. Neither of them is particularly bright and Bill might even be a bit brain damaged. Weenie is full of energy, but very accident prone. Bill is also full of energy, especially when it relates to food. As if Mother Nature wanted to make up for shortchanging them in the brains department, they are both very tough and resilient. They are the best of friends and often come up with “fun ideas” for whiling away the time while their humans are at work. Hilarity and property damage ensue.
