Lets Talk About Our Lives

I was adopted by a stray cat.

I was feeding him for two years more or less. It was a scardy cat, but over time he decided it is ok to be on the human side of the kitchen window and is ok for me to pet him.
Still not 100% a house cat but I will get him there.
 
Hehe, happened to my family some years ago, a stray one day decided to "adopt" us.
Really friendly cat, love to chat with us.
However, my late granny was alergic to cat hairs.
So we handed the cat to our Neighbours. Still the cat always came over for a visit and cuddles.
 
My folks informed me that some tried to break into our House last night.....
I opened a thread about that.
 
Just finished binge-watching the Black Mirror series. Wish the producers had turned 'San Junipero' as a stand-alone movie. It's very sweet.

Of course, the 80s nostalgia helped a lot.

I actually remember the most that episode where the main character threatened to take his life in protest on a talent show and they made him an influencer.
 
Huh I actually recieved a scam mail!

Supposedly from the Royal Mail where they failed to deliver a parcel so I gotta pay for redelivery.

Oh it also has app download and tracking links!

I admit I feel a bit emotional.

This is the first dedicated scam mail I got in ages.

Last one was Nigerian Prince one.

Nice...lemme guess, the parcel was stuck in customs?
 
Nope!

Just vague failed delivery.

Did not know Greece was a part of the UK admitedly but the Royal Mail does not care!

Next time ask. Who knows, some foxy lady might have sent you her monies to evade her husband in a no-prenup divorce (no kidding, that's what my dad almost fell for but for his stinginess to paying any customs stuff if he didn't have to). 😛

So thieves are casing my house.

Or that was the thought my brain went to when a delivery guy showed up unannounced second time in under a week at my doorstep.
Then again I think I am quite safe from home invasion. There are 20-year-old cars in front of my house. No self-respecting thief would brake in here when there are literal mansions on the other side of the street from me.

Seriously how the hell can you get your own address wrong?
Their side of the street is odd-numbered and they have a letter behind it.
Mine is even and there is no letter.
 
Shitty delivery workers who might not care that much anyway? Happens sometimes where i live getting mail for across the street and at least once packages on my porch for a house up the road. Do you know what company they work for? Can call and complain and hopefully it will get them to knock it off if only to not have to deal with you.

Didn't ask. Uber eats or other food delivery outfit. If it was just posts or packages I would not have cared or thought those were thieves casing a house.
 
So.

My father passed away and I am currently waiting for the undertaker office to arrive.

I knew it could happen at any time, since he came out of covid a wreck but when it happens the impact i still...

Ouch.

I'm sorry to hear that, my man. Take your time, we'll be here when you come back.
 
Two nights back, at 02:00, I got a phone call from a very good friend of mine.

She told me that her husband woke her up, yelling that she hit him in her sleep. She was shaken and somewhat afraid of him.


That story made me remember what my mother and I, as a child, went through with my father. But what got me angry was the conversation that followed.
My position was that if you are afraid of your husband, don't be in the same apartment as he is. She has begun making excuses, listing reasons why she would postpone moving out. The longer the list the angrier I got.

He is a good guy, he is only mean some of the time, divorce would be time-consuming, I paid for all the furniture, my workplace is in the same building as the apartment, my dogs would miss him, yadda yadda...
All that was easy to dismiss then she went on and said that the adoption agency only lets you apply if you were in a relationship for five years.

I hate rationalization. It is a mind disease that makes rational people act both self-defeating and self-destructive.

Her situation is not dire. There is no need to go in and save her. The guy is manipulative and my friend also falls in that category. Both of them are miserable and invent ways to make the other one feel worst than they are.
 
I got to pet a baby bunny in the wild. It was very smol and had a small cotton ball tail. :3 🐇
 
"Control, bunny has made contact with the wild brethren. I repeat, bunny has made contact with the wild brethren. Advice, over."

Got a phone call.

"Hello is this Marek Gutowski?"
"Gutkowski"
"Sorry, your insurance is about to expire."
"No, it's not."
"...uhm Yes it is."
"On what?"
"Your car."
"Which car?"
"Uhm Fiat."
"Which Fiat?"
"Fiat Seicento."
"Oh I'm sorry that one I do not have. Thanks for playing and have a nice day."
"A nice day to you too?"
*click*

Somewhere in my insurance company, young insurance agents are trying to steal clients from my agent. Good luck. She looks like a fashion model, and I am an idiot.

Tell her to flash some boobies for your loyalty! 😈

Seriously though, if they're from the same company that's kinda petty af.
