Black Cat Appreciation Day has been declared–tomorrow. Very nice. This information was shared in the name of what I’d call a calico cat, although the blogger known as Melissa says “tortie.” I see two white spots! Our Queen Heather has that type of coloring, though her face is different; she looks brown from a distance, her coat’s actually a mix of black and orange, and she has cream-colored patches on her underside and the tip of her tail.

Congratulations to the Welches and their very friendly store cats, too…

Just to make sure it does not become true again. Sometimes I do understand why, in primary school, my brother and a few mixed-breed friends called themselves a “Hate Your (White) Self Club.” Well, no, this web site does not encourage hate, not even self-hate. But we need to pay attention to the different ways people talk, and be less intimidated by the ways other people’s habitual speech patterns may differ from ours.


Tim Tebow celebrates his twenty-eighth birthday with a fundraiser video for his charity:


I had to scroll down through a whole fashion shoot of photos to find this post. The Sickly Snail would never have been able to open it. If your computer can handle lots of images, however, here’s a nice collection of tips for commuting to work and school.
