What I do when I should be writing

I love Facebook. I know some people hate it, but when there is nothing on TV, I like to scroll down and watch informational videos.

I mean, if I didn't look at Facebook I would never have known the marshmallow farmers in North Carolina are in trouble because of all this rain:

But I mostly like cat photos. There are lots and lots of cat photos and videos. I like the one where the chubby cats try to squeeze themselves into tiny boxes.

Yes, I'm easily amused.

My youngest son's cats, Moe and Odie, have their own Facebook page. He takes photos of his two cats and they are adorable.

Now, I happen to own the mother of one of those cats, so I have a proprietary interest. So I have been attempting to take a picture of her doing something cute and photogenic.

The trouble is, what she does best is sleep beneath our bed. It's a little hard to get a good shot and the best I've gotten is two scary eyes glowing from under the box springs.

There are two morals to this story:

I am not ever going to be famous on Facebook for my cute cat videos.

I am wasting too much time on Facebook.

Have a great week!


  1. I don't spend much time on the so-called social networks, although I should be promoting my books there. Do you think it's worth it?
    I love taking pictures of my cat whether she's doing something cute or not.
    I saw one fellow on TV who said he followed his cat around all day with his camcorder all ready. And waiting, down on all fours, just following that cat...

    1. Social media? I dunno, Lila. time will tell, I suppose.

  2. We all waste time on something... I say if you enjoy FB, just enjoy without guilt. :)

    1. Ha ha, I don't feel a bit guilty. I could be watching some of the silly shows on TV.
