Things you can run out of while looking for your missing cat:
  • fliers
  • tape
  • staples (once you've upgraded from packing tape to a brand new staple gun)
  • energy (for asking strangers if they've seen the cat and then talking with them about how you miss her)
  • breath (for playing the ocarina she loves)
  • will-power (to keep singing the song from when she was a tiny kitten about how you love her and miss her when she's gone)

I used to check out seasons of Farscape from the library when I lived in Seattle.  The Seattle Public Library would only let you check out a book (or DVD... or set of DVDs) for one week.  And you couldn't renew it if someone else had a hold on it.  Well, all the seasons of Farscape had dozens of holds on them.  You had to wait until your turn to check them out.  And, then, you only had one week to watch the whole season.

Watching a whole season of Farscape in just one week...  Well, it made me think of the description of a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster from The Hitchhiker's Guide -- "like having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick."

Today, I watched the last episode of Glee.  I could tell you what I thought of Glee...  But, suffice it to say, I thought enough of it to keep watching.  For six years.

I can't help but think that Glee was a six-year-long Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster.

I think I'd better go lie down for a bit.
