The brain cannot function without coffee.

That's a line we heard in a BBC murder mystery last night (have you seen David Suchet as Agatha Christie's Poirot? OCD people everywhere, unite!) And I find it to be true.

I mean, espresso is a reason for living.

Since this spot is a vehicle for grumping, I thought I'd mention a few things that make me happy.

Not that there are any surprises here...

Kitties! Life is so much better with furry little guys.

Cheesecake. And the friend who made me a vegan, sugar-free version so I could actually eat some.
Painting. I can't draw to save my life, but I have a decent eye for color. Here is an ornament I painted for my BFF.
Laughing. I saw this in an antique/junk shop in Portland yesterday and it reminded me of a lewd joke my dad told us years ago. Let's just say, "I sold your thermos for $100" was the punchline.

All of you in blogland! You always cheer me up. Happy New Year!

And a very happy New Year to you too. Filled with love and laughter. And kittehs. And coffee (if you must).

Claire said...

Happy new year, sweetie. Kitties and coffee for the win!

we just got a free coffee maker from our grocery store. I don't really drink coffee though. But Lana does.

Happy New Year! And I'm wondering what's in a vegan, sugar-free cheesecake? Bet it goes good with coffee from a $100 thermos!

Mmmmm... cheesecake and espresso. I'm down on cats right now since ours refuse to do anything about the mouse we discovered in the house. Happy new year!

Yep, life is so much better with furry little guys... I just wish my Mongo would know the difference between his Kitty Toilet and the floor right next to it.

Hey, just stopping by to wish you a Happy New Year minus the idiots that make your life hell. Sounds like a plan, right?

...and, yeah, life is so much better with furry friends and coffee!;)

Lynn said...

Hmmm - trying to figure out what that joke might have been...

Happy New Year, my friend. You always make me happy, too - and I enjoy your "grumping" posts, too. :)

You are the one who cheers us up...even when you are grouching. Happy 2015. Wishing you the best.

I am intrigued about the thermos line....

Hey there, Riot Kitty,

Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar has kindly allowed me to use the computer.

I had to have a cup of coffee before I read your post. Rather enjoy having my eyebrows stuck to the top of my forehead! :)

A peaceful and as Penny would say, "pawsitive" 2015 to you and your loved ones.

Oh yes, I watched David Suchet as Poirot for years! That is a fabulous line and I agree! My brain has been addicted to caffeine for years, I can't function without it! Hope you had a great New Years Eve!

Oh, Riot Kitty, you CANNOT just leave us hanging like that. WHAT'S THE REST OF THE LEWD JOKE?

Your painted ornament is lovely. Happy New Year to you and Mr RK.

OK ok! A guy starts a new job in a sex toy shop. His boss goes to lunch and does a quick price review on the dildo counter. "The white ones are $20, and the black ones are $30, because people think they're bigger."

Half an hour later, he comes back and asks the new employee how he did.

"Great," the new employee replies. "I sold two white ones, three black ones, and I sold your thermos for $100."

Debra She Who Seeks said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I'm glad I asked! Thanks!

David Suchet portrayed Poirot the best of all who played the role...in my opinion. He was just wonderful. Even the late Agatha Christie's daughter praised him...to his face. So that certainly was worthy praise, indeed.

Happy New Year to you and your kitties and Mr RK, of course. Okay that sounded rude.
