Happy 2006

One of the best things about this culture is the fact that December 23rd to January 2nd is one giant parenthesis during which NOBODY DOES ANYTHING PRODUCTIVE. How nice. How was yours?

Well, that's over, so back to blogging and working for a living.

Here's a nice thing to start with:

Cat Calls 911 to Help Owner, Police Say

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Police aren't sure how else to explain it. But when an officer walked into an apartment Thursday night to answer a 911 call, an orange-and-tan striped cat was lying by a telephone on the living room floor. The cat's owner, Gary Rosheisen, was on the ground near his bed having fallen out of his wheelchair.

Rosheisen said his cat, Tommy, must have hit the right buttons to call 911.

"I know it sounds kind of weird," Officer Patrick Daugherty said, unsuccessfully searching for some other explanation.

Nothing weird about it: Tommy just made a mistake, and was trying to order a pizza.
