Sometimes I like to poke a bit of fun at things. I wrote some web pages for Squidoo that are purely for fun. I hope you will find them to be entertaining.
Obsessive Cat Disorder
You know how it starts. A friend's cat has had kittens, and no one wants the last, little one, so won't you please take it, so you do.
Then, you see one eating yesterday's french fries out behind the McDonald's dumpster, so you take it home and shower it with love and cans of tuna.
Finally, you go to put a letter in the mailbox on the coldest evening of the winter, and you spy it, huddled next to your tire underneath your car. You are compelled as if by a force outside yourself to chase it down for three blocks in the bleak of night without a hat or gloves so you can rescue it and take it back to your warm and inviting home.
It all starts just this innocently. The problem is, you can no longer control it. Neighbors call you the cat lady. Friends refuse to house-sit. You find yourself with cat art, cat purses, cat switchplates, cat t-shirts and attire. Books about cats, toys for cats, triple-decker-combination-scratching-post-and-food-and-water-extravaganzas. You have gone over the edge.
Don't despair; it happens to lots of good, well intentioned people. We know you need your fix. So we've assembled some delightful art and apparel to help you enjoy your cat obsession. There are also interesting quotes about cats, and lots and lots of cat trivia for you to peruse.Read more...

The Forer Effect and Horoscopes
OK. Let me first say that I love a good horoscope. I think that being able to write good horoscopes is definitely a gift that must be developed and nurtured, much like a fermenting batch of sourdough starter. The Forer Effect shows us how valuable this skill must be. It's even possible that having the gift of writing horoscopes could be your path to financial freedom.
Having said that, it is important for you to know that I plan to poke fun at horoscopes throughout this lens, so if you take them very seriously, and you are easily offended by people who don't, you should probably hit your "BACK" button now.
However, if you don't mind a little fun, then read on.
