Shadow & Katrina


Meet Katrina. She joined our family on October 18th 2005. Katrina and Shadow actually got along together, occasionally playing "games". Now if only Katrina could be as nice to Rose. She is a cosmic pain in the butt with my little girl!! Seriously!! Standing in doorways so that Rose cannot walk through during feedings, biting Rose's ever-moving "happy" tail.... Shadow looked quite content sharing her "flashy beast" moment with Katrina, didn't she?
On an unrelated note, the other day, I was looking at a particular fan-made Web site which features Robert Downey Jr. pictures. This person happens to like pictures of RDJ young. So there were several consecutive photographs of that ex-bad boy. This threw me off the edge emotionally!! Which actually shocked me a bit. So, while I was supposed to be working on my Secretive Writing Project, emotions instead wrote this. Bare with me. Because I thought I'd share it. I, of course made a few changes from the other day's version, because writers are never satisfied with their work!!    
When I see pictures of Robert Downey Jr. as a young, "ne'er do right 20-something" drug addict, how does this make me feel? Do I think he looked hot? Sexy? Cute? Like everybody else seemingly does? No!! Whenever I see young pictures of Robert Downey Jr., my heart breaks for his old self. Breaks. And I feel the impulsive urge to "photoshoot" in a few details. Such as his facial laugh lines which I find oddly attractive. Plus some silver hairs. I feel the impulsive urge to make his eyes--which I love, love, love!!--less dark, sad, and desolate. I want Robert Downey Jr. sobered up. I somehow want to save him, even though I know he is fine now. And, lastly, I feel the impulsive urge to "photoshoot" in 20 years.   
Afterthought. For those of you who like young pictures of Robert Downey Jr., I respect that. These are simply my thoughts and feelings.

I think RD Jr was cute in that movie about reincarnation - when he was made over so he could fall in love with his wife again? Was he on drugs then???

Thank-you for the comment!!
I took the liberty of Google-searching "Chances Are". Mainly because I've never seen it, and hadn't a clue as to which film RDJ's character was "made over so he could fall in love with his wife again". This movie's year was 1989. {Ooooh!! That would have made me five years old!! Okay. I am back!!} In 1989, RDJ was, indeed, doing drugs. Not to ruin this film for you!! Chances are {A play on words!! Get it? Chances Are?} RDJ was not using any narcotics during its production. He often did drugs after work. That is what I read, anyway!! I saw a picture of RDJ from "Chances Are". Oh my goodness, his smile!! That much has not changed. ;op

Ha ha, Fizz is having the same thing with the new puppy, Deshka, at the moment. Hopefully they will learn to love each other soon.
As for the pics of RDjnr, I think it shows hope, to any people who are suffering like he did, you can beat the addiction. I'm sure he looks at his old photo's every now & again, just to remind himself of what he once was & how he has turned his life around. What a wonderful example he is for mankind.

Fizz and Deshka will love each other someday!! Just give them time. ;)
"As for the pics of RDjnr, I think it shows hope, to any people who are suffering like he did, you can beat the addiction.". True!! But, I had to smirk at this sweet sentence. See, RDJ does not accept such compliments. So, somewhere in SoCal, he is rolling his eyes!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;-D
"I'm sure he looks at his old photo's every now & again, just to remind himself of what he once was & how he has turned his life around.". Apparently. He has a "Wall of Shame" bulletin board which features pictures of his past, present and future. If memory serves me right!! ;)
"What a wonderful example he is for mankind.". True again!! That's right. Make him roll his eyes once more!! That would really do it!! Hee, hee, hee.... ;op

oh let me tell you...jesse would understand your feelings Miss Rose, his sis, Tiera, would torment him endlessly. and she was only 9 pounds to his 120- she would sit on his cookie blanket so he had to stand there holding his cookie in his mouth until I kicked her off so he could enjoy. With a swish of her tail she would hiss and dash off with a little meowing laugh.
