Jack then a meme

We welcome our new feline overlord and may he be merciful!

Jack, our new kitten is an ankle biter and foot attacker! Plus, his claws and teeth have become more of a force. Jack is still a tiny guy, but I guess he's grown some in the short time we've had him. We're trying to teach him the meaning of "OW!" as a deterrent.

We'll say "OWW!" overdramatically, and he'll look taken aback. But then 5 minutes later he'll forget that ankle biting induces the "OWW!" reaction from Mommy and Daddy. It's a process. He'll learn to go easy on us wimpy humans.

I'm kinda tired today because Jack wanted to be up about 30 minutes before I wanted to be up. We keep him in a tall Rubbermaid tub by the bed at night so he doesn't get in trouble during the night and I think he heard my alarm. I like to use the snooze. Like Cliff, Jack doesn't seem to get the whole snooze thing and decided it was time for breakfast and play time!

I can see I'm going to have to modify the morning routine so that our feline overlord lets us sleep. I'm setting the alarm for when I really want to get up. Then we'll find out if Jack is responding to the alarm or whether he just likes getting up at 5:30am.

I'm actually agnostic, but the quiz mostly only has 2 choices per question. One question was, "Do you believe in an after life?" Answers: Yes or No. Well, where's the "not sure" choice? Huh? Do I subscribe to Heaven, Nirvana, Valhalla or Olympus? Probably not. Do I rule out the idea of an afterlife? No, but I'd hazard a guess that it wouldn't be anything like men have imagined. Existence is learning and growing. And if there is an afterlife, I'm betting it will be some kind of adventure we can't imagine here.

So I come out as an atheist, because I don't believe in the current religions. I suppose the writer of the quiz thinks an agnostic still has to be attached to the trappings of religion, created mostly by misogynist and scientifically unlearned men from a couple of thousands of years ago.

Well, excuse the heck outta me! :P

You fit in with:

Your ideals mostly resemble those of an Atheist. You have very little faith and you are very focused on intellectual endeavors. You value objective proof over intuition or subjective thoughts. You enjoy talking about ideas and tend to have a lot of in depth conversations with people.

40% scientific.
80% reason-oriented.
