... like SOMETHING that ate the canary!


I think this might be a PURRfect caption!


I am really happy with my overall work on captions within the last 7 days or so. I think its about the best week of quality I've had in quite some time, even with real life issues creeping around me, I have found a bit of a groove creatively where I don't feel like I've been repeating myself, and possibly breaking a bit of new ground for me to play with in the future.

Raven made me a 2 panel caption which was VERY fun and uplifting .. with a cute fairy that only seemed to know one spell .. but its one she is really good at doing! I thought it might be nice if I tried to return a caption while I was still in a good mood. I glanced through her preferences, including a few that had been added 2 weeks ago .. and hopped into her picture folder, and this one just sort of jumped out at me and started rubbing against my leg before following me home.

Though I am allergic to most animals (we now have fish at least!) we have a few stray cats that we try to take care of, and often I'll still pet them after giving them treats .. even though I immediately have to run upstairs to the apartment and wash my hands and take some liquid Benedryl. They are so sweet, and I really wish I could handle them. Just like the caption Raven made me, just seeing them for a few minutes can often make a shitty day a bit less shitty. I hope that THIS caption blog does the same for those who read it .. give you all a smile, a chuckle, or even a guffaw along with whatever happens to be rattling around my brain at the moment.



This song always reminds me of the planetarium my classes would visit when I was in elementary school. Just sitting in the dark, watching the stars (much more visible than the real ones in the light polluted city I grew up in) and relax. I guess the guy running it was sort of a 1970's hippie, as he'd usually play "Moonshadow" , "Moondance" and inexplicably, "More Than a Feeling" by Boston.

Also, for those who observe it ..


 Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. WOW!! What a great cap Dee. The image was peeeerfect. LOL! I really enjoyed it. Especially the part where he would come running every time he heard the can opener.

    LOVED IT!!

    1. That is one of those "Dee bits" in a caption that lets you know its truly me!

      Its the kind of thing that Steffie or Petra would've LOVED when they read it on the Haven. It fits into the caption, but it still is a 'did she actually write that?' spot where you have to go back and check. Yup, I did!
