TV For Sale

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Tonight marks the end of an era. Don't worry, I'm not talking about me. (Scared you didn't I!)

Tonight Jack Bauer went dark for all time. Glogirly's (almost) favorite show aired it's final episode. The 24 clock has stopped ticking. Sadly, MY favorite character Chloe, the snarky CTU agent that everyone loves to roll their eyes with is history as well. We had so much in common, Chloe and I. Check out my TRIBUTE to her back when the 8th season of 24 was just beginning.

... tick tock tick tock.

Glogirly says we should just sell all the TV's now. Nothing worth watching. Gloman says we should just donate them. To the train tracks that run behind the townhouse.

On an unrelated note...
Glogirly has finally returned from her three weeks of new job training. She's showering me with Salmon-love. And she promises to be a better blogger. She misses all of our wonderful blogging friends. Warning: She's a big talker. Don't cut her too much slack. You KNOW I won't.

Salmon Training

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Phew! It's been a long week here in the townhouse without my blogging assistant... I mean my girl. Since she's been out at the Coldwater Creek home offices training for this new job of hers, I decided to do a little training of my own. It's just me and Gloman here and I'm pleased to report I have made considerable progress in his training.

Get this. I have Gloman trained to say "Salmon" whenever I jump up on the sofa next to him and purr. I also have him trained to get up off the sofa and go to the kitchen to give me "Salmon" every time, in response to my purr cure, he says "Salmon." I'm both surprised and pleased by his progress. He's a very quick study for a boy, a boy who likes dogs no less. In order to consistently reinforce this optimum behavior, I have made it a priority to promptly run to the kitchen whenever he says "Salmon" so that he may give me "Salmon."

Cesar Milan, the dog whisperer, says it's very important to reward desired behavior. And since I DESIRE "Salmon," I feel it's critical to reward Gloman each time I get him to SAY "Salmon" by running to the kitchen FOR "Salmon."

Just wait til Glogirly comes home and gets a load of this! She's going to be so impressed. I'm sure she'll want to reward me with more "Salmon."

Special note to Glogirly:
Despite what Gloman says,
1. He is NOT training me, rather I'm training him.
2. I am not furring up your pillow.
3. I really do miss you.

4. I'm a total princess ...but you already knew that.

Dear Glogirly,

Hi everyone, Katie here.

Excuse me for a moment while I address my girl.

Dear Glogirly,

You've only been gone one day and I can already see my reflection in my food dish. Not good. I'm going to have to employ my charms with Gloman in order to keep my dish full and my tummy satisfied. I'm coming when he calls, I'm sticking to your side of the bed. Short of wearing a dog-suit, I'm not quite sure what else I can do to win him over. Any advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

(your cat)

Friends, I will keep you apprised of my situation.
