It’s the triumphant return of Friday catblogging, featuring another picture of furball number one, Shiva.
One of the great things about cats is that they are the undisputed champions of the chillout, as demonstrated in this picture. As long as that food bowl stays magically full and the litter magically gets cleaned on a regular basis, it’s all good. And when it’s superplusgood, it’s time to display that stomach.
To paraphrase the song, Damn it’s good to be a furball…
As shown in the picture, Shiva’s most interesting physical feature is how her fur is actually white at the roots, then progressively fades to black as it grows longer.

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
