you've got mail


Another one.

Pfft.

MOUSES!

And another one?

And ANOTHER?

MOUSES!

Hey Peepers!  Get in here and collect all your mousin' moused-up mail, would ya?

MOUSES!

I know, I know...  I know what you're thinkin'.  You're thinkin' this has somethin' to do with all those UNdeleted deleted e-mails I blogged 'bout the other day.

Nope.

Although I am talkin' about e-mails...

However they have not been deleted.

Yet.

MOUSES!

On the other paw...

HEY PEEPERS!  Get in here right now and gather up your stupid mousin' moused-up mail before I start deletin'.

MOUSES!

But what's this now?

THEY'RE SENDIN' HARD COPIES TO HER, NOW, TOO?

MOUSES!

I know, I know...  I know what you're thinkin'.  You're thinkin' pals from all over the world are sendin' Peepers cards for Christmas.


Nope.

Thing is, pals from all over the world send ME, Seville the Cat, Christmas cards every year.  Peepers?  Not so much.  Probably on account of Peepers bein' lucky if she gets her cards out to them by Christmas of the FOLLOWIN' year.

Yup, that's just the kind of peep she is: a disorganised procrastinatin' peep, for sure.  What does she think she is?  A cat with nine lives, like me?

MOUSES!

HEY PEEPERS!  GET IN HERE AND GATHER UP THIS MOUSIN' MOUSED-UP MAIL OVER HERE BY MY DESK RIGHT NOW.  ITS PRESENCE IS DISTRACTIN' ME TO NO END.

MOUSES!

So what is all this mail Peepers is gettin', both electronically and via the mailman, you ask?  And who is sendin' her all this stuff?  And why?

Good questions, my friends.  All very good questions, indeed.  The thing is...

The thing is...

The thing is, it's seed catalogue season and apparently every seed company and their dog knows that Peepers sure does love growin' stuff from seed.

'Nough said.

MOUSES!

Wait a minute.  There is ONE MORE thing that needs sayin', for sure.

HEY PEEPERS!  If you're placin' any seed orders - and I know you will be 'cause orderin' seeds is kinda what you do - REMEMBER TO ORDER ME SOME CATNIP SEED WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, AND...

What?  What's that, Peepers?  What's that you're babblin' on about now?


SO WHAT if I already have catnip seed on paw.  SO WHAT?  It's not like you've never ordered seeds for stuff you already had.  I happen to know for a fact that you have a whole stash of seed you've never planted.  Yeah, yeah...  You say you'll plant it sometime.  Heard that story before.  Prolly hear it again.  Thing is, you've got a stash of seeds and if you can have a seed stash, so can I.

'Nough said.

NOW.

MOUSES!

And be sure to make my packet of catnip seed a super-duper big one.  The biggest they've got should do.

MOUSES!
