    Last evening, after dinner, the boy and the cat and the dog and I were ranged around the stove.

    Son pointed out that the cat was licking the dog's paw. I looked over in time to see the dog licking the cats head.

    Lo, how the mighty cat-hater has fallen.

    Spartacus is an entirely under used name for pets....so are Paulo, and Grendel (this one maybe for obvious reasons). When in doubt....choose from Star Wars characters (I have 3 cats: Yoda, Wicket, Moxerella Cheese <--not a Star Wars name)

    No Costco here....we have a Sam's club but I let my membership lapse.
    I should renew my membership come to think of it.

    I will only eat the Polly-O brand...there is no substitute.... ;-)

    I am a fan of string cheese. It is a weird name...the 2 are unrelated. Named her Moxie...added the middle name of Cheese cuz it sounds good..in order to make it all work...Moxerella Cheese...Yoda's middle name is Shoes, Yoda Shoes. Wicket Toes (he has double paws)...all pet animals need middle names.

    I do not shop at Costco...I cannot eat in bulk. :lol:

    Nope, every name I come up with my daughter nixes, and every name she comes up with I shoot down. I'm liking Spartacus, but have a feeling that DD won't. DD goes for girly, ribbon-y, lacy names, which I feel does not sufficiently acknowledge the predator in the cat.

    I'm still partial to Rhabnu7, which she typed one day.

    Our dog is Kiara. Middle name is Maria Theresa Louise. Seems a little unbalanced, I know. Cat is still `the cat'.

    BTW, now that she is forbidden to walk on the keyboard, she jumps back and forth over it instead. Which is actually more distracting and annoying, plus I think she is showing off.

    As if you thought I would eat any other brand......
    "$7.69 Kraft polly-o string cheese 48 1oz sticks (16c each)"

    Cheap, I say!

    We used to be addicted to the real Armenian String cheese with the seeds in it. Even poly-o is way behind the real thing.

    But for convenience, you can't beat those sticks.

    So I googled chocolate cranberry tart and found this recipe: http://www.letsdishrecipes.com/2010/12/cranberry-dark-chocolate-holiday-pie.html

    Dinner a few nights ago was a roast chicken that was good enough to drive across town for on the way home from work. Served leftovers later of sliced chicken served with mayo, wasabi, and cranberry sauce. Delicious. All of the above flavors are required to make this work.

    Similar to this thread . . .

    ETA: although to be fair, the cranberry dark chocolate tart was referenced in another thread. I just enjoy the random meandering ones like this . . .

    Geez, that's more complex that what I did. I took a pie crust, dumped some cranberries, sugar and chocolate chips in it and baked until done. I don't do the recipe thing when concocting, I just go with it. That sounds good though...

    My dog's "middle" name is McBarksALotVonWiggles. Yeah, she barks a lot and when she's excited her whole body wiggles.

    My last cat's name was Cheyanne, Chey for short.

    My last dog used to "chew" (lightly) on the one cat. The other cat beat the crud out of her when she tried.

    We had a little white kitty named Satchmo back in '71 right after Satch died.

    Michelle got her name because I found her little kitten self hiding around here during the summer of the 2008 elections. Solid black kitty so it got named Barack. After we got closer to each other after a while I noticed I needed to change the name to Michelle. Shot records say Michelle but she has been called Little Bit from day one.

    I remember that. We had a little black kitten show up here at that time if you remember.
    I think we called it Obama. Poor little guy didn't last too long. I hope that's not an omen.
